Streetcar Bistro & Taproom in the Pearl District has closed.
In a statement, owner Jim Conachan said, “I’ve chosen to close our restaurant. The construction around us has just gone on too long and was far more invasive to our business than I anticipated.”
Here is the press release –
It is with deep sadness that I must inform you that we closed Streetcar Bistro & Taproom for business as of August 24, 2016. We have made so many neighborhood friends over the past four years. Equally as important, we had fantastic staff, who I met with the night before closing, to discuss the closure face to face. There were hugs and well wishes, which is the best we could hope for under such sad circumstances.
My greatest sense of pride with our restaurant was to provide a place for people to work and for our neighborhood to feel they had a great experience. It is the loss of these two things I will miss the most. We will also miss the many musicians that provided such great entertainment for us. Portland has the best to offer when it comes to singer songwriters, and we took great pride in providing a forum for their immense talent.
Thank you all for your friendship and patronage. We have always appreciated you.
Once again, my best wishes to the owners and staff.
Three in one day! Does this mean the much ballyhooed “Restaurantageddon” tossed out in early 2016 is here? Nope. This is all normal stuff for the Portland food scene.
