Gallagher’s Bar shutting their doors this Saturday

A Facebook post from musical act Brothers Du Monde has made Hamilton aware of yet another bar closure. This time it’s Gallagher’s Bar and Lounge.

Mixed emotions as we’ve just been informed it’s the end of an era. Our home away from home, Gallagher’s will be closing…

Posted by Brothers Du Monde on Tuesday, November 6, 2018

The band, who plays on the Gallagher’s stage every Friday night, dropped the news on Tuesday. Not even Gallagher’s themselves have made an official announcement although we did reach out to the bar’s management and can confirm that the rumours are true.

The reason stated was that they just aren’t that busy.

News of Gallagher’s closure comes just a week after their neighbour Two Black Sheep made the announcement to close on November 24th.

It doesn’t appear that the two closures are related but it certainly is suspicious that two long-standing neighbouring bars happen to close within the same month.

Gallagher’s final day is Saturday, November 10th. Head down for some live DJs and say your goodbyes. And while you’re there, you may want to order a plate of nachos as they’re some of the best in the city.

    Hamilton is experiencing a renewal. We’re getting new exciting places and drawing a more diverse crowd. Restaurants and Bars are very demanding of the owner’s time and life. Sometimes it’s good to take a step back to renew themselves and have a life outside the business. The investment to rebuild, upgrade and renew can be substantial and not always feasible. Good luck to the crew at Gallagher’s. Thank you for many great years.

    Unbelievable to see Gallaghers close. No one else ever came close to the incredible hospitality of the Gallaghers team. No one else came close to their live entertainment. So it was the only spot for creatives and artsies this side of the CN tower!.
