The Glenwood reopened for business last night after shuttering earlier this month (story here).
An employee at the gastropub, located in East Atlanta at 1263 Glenwood Avenue, confirmed over the phone that The Glenwood reopened for business on Jan. 14.
Edward Gilgor, chair of the East Atlanta Community Association (EACA), sent out an email to community subscribers, urging them to patronize the gastropub.
“The Glenwood is open for business. I would encourage anyone who wishes it to remain open to support it by going there.”
Signs posted on the restaurant announced they’d close for a week to “renovate.” Reports indicate the restaurant actually closed to gather funds to renew their liquor license.
Cliff Bostock was the first to report their closure and since then, has received a comment on his posing from Dan Simpson, managing partner for The Glenwood countering the reports of their closure:
Hold on.. Wait a minute! Cliff, I appreciate the words of concern but news of the demise of The Glenwood is greatly exaggerated. Yes, we are closed temporarily. And yes, our liquor license has not been renewed…yet. But several friends of The Glenwood have stepped up and it looks as if we’ll have the funding to renew and move forward if we can come to terms- and I think we can. It was touching to read the kind words posted by your readers. And thanks for your concern. But failure is not an option. Cheers and see you all real soon. Dan Simpson, managing partner
They’re lucky to have friends who will lick their wounds. What happens when they lose an appendage or two?
