Well, this is hard to report. This one hurts. So many memories. One of Seattle’s first bars to focus on craft beer, The Red Door, just announced that it will close at the end of its current lease. Back then, we called them microbrews and The Red Door in Fremont was one of the only places in the city where you could find more than one or two of them on tap. The original Red Door opened in 1988. Now, they are slated to close on March 8th
I will have more to report in the coming days, but for now, here is the announcement that showed up on Facebook today:
It is with great sadness that we share that we will be closing the Red Door at the end of our current lease, and our last day of business will be Sunday, March 8th.
We take our stewardship of this historic building and business seriously, but we just aren’t able to make it work financially. We notified our team in person today and will be doing anything we can to support them in this transition.
We are grateful for you, and each and every person who has come through our doors – whether customer, supplier or team member – and will miss being a part of our wonderful Fremont community.
Please join us often between now and March 8th to raise a glass and celebrate the 31 years we’ve had together.
Pete and Emily
