Hand in Hand, a “classic English pub” in Virginia-Highland since 2000, has closed.
Crews over the weekend were spotted emptying the restaurant, at 752 North Highland Avenue NE.
All of the furniture and fixtures have been removed.
While the restaurant’s owners were not reachable for comment Monday, managers at several neighboring businesses confirmed the news with What Now Atlanta.
Employees reportedly were notified Sunday morning of the closure at 9 a.m. without warning.
It’s unclear why the restaurant—with a lease through May 2019—abruptly closed its doors and there’s no word on what might open in its place.
The property housing Hand in Hand was sold in 2015.
