In the wake of the sudden closing of the Guild 45th, The Iron Bull made an announcement on their Facebook page Thursday morning on the status of the bar, indicating that they still plan to reopen their establishment at some point.
“To our friends, family, and fans:
Now that Guild 45th has closed for renovations there’s been even more speculation about the fate of our little corner of Wallyhood Paradise. We want to take this moment to give you a clear reassurance; The Iron Bull will reopen!
Given our abrupt closure, we understand how it’s easy to believe that we won’t return, but please trust that we will and that we’re doing everything in our power to do so as soon as possible! It takes time to do things the right way, especially when you’re dealing with a building as old as ours, and we want to make sure that when we reopen our doors we are the best possible Iron Bull we can be for our staff and our patrons! Our closure is lasting longer than any of us anticipated, but sometimes time is price of doing a good job.
We apologize for not giving more frequent updates on the status of the bar, but we want to make sure when we give updates that we can give something more concrete, so if you hear radio silence for a bit, don’t lose heart! We’re just a bit more focused on getting ourselves ready for you so you can watch your games in the best sports bar, play pinball and pool in the best game bar, eat delicious food in your favorite restaurant, drink fantastic drinks in your favorite watering hole, and enjoy the company of our wonderful staff in our home away from home.”
