The bar made the announcement on its website and social media platforms yesterday. Instagram post, Greg Boehm, owner of Cocktail Kingdom, whose properties include Boilermaker, the Cabinet, Mace and the Miracle Christmas and Sippin' Santa pop-ups, wrote, in part:
It is with a heavy heart that we are closing Boilermaker. So many amazing memories, late nights, great cocktails, fantastic burgers and wings ... Thank you to all of the staff! Thank you to the bartenders for all of the good times.
Boilermaker opened in the fall of 2014... taking over the space from Golden Cadillac, a similar retro bar from the same ownership that packed it in after eight months.
No word if Cocktail Kingdom will try a new concept here or vacate the space.
Boca Chica, the well-liked Latin American restaurant, was in this space from 1989 to 2013.
