Goodbye, Bourbon House: A Casual Farewell to the Salt Lake City Joint
It is with a heavy heart that we bid farewell to one of Salt Lake City’s finest drinking establishments. Bourbon House, located in downtown Salt Lake City, has officially closed its doors.
The COVID Factor
The reason for Bourbon House’s closure, of course, is the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Restaurant and bar owners across the country have been struggling to stay afloat with the various restrictions and safety protocols required to combat the spread of the virus. Unfortunately, Bourbon House is yet another victim of these challenging times.
The Bourbon House Experience
For those fortunate enough to have visited Bourbon House during its tenure, the bar provided a truly unique atmosphere. Customers were greeted by immaculate woodwork and exposed brick walls, setting the tone for a cozy and sophisticated drinking experience.
The bar was known for its extensive selection of bourbon and whiskey, as well as an impressive cocktail menu. Customers raved about the Old-Fashioneds, which perfectly balanced the sweetness of the sugar with the bite of bitters and the warmth of the whiskey. The bartenders were truly skilled and made every drink with precision and care.
A Nod to the Owners and Staff
Of course, while the bar itself was a work of art, it was the people who worked there who truly made Bourbon House special. The owners, who poured their hearts and souls into the establishment, created a warm and welcoming environment for all who entered. The staff, who were unbelievably knowledgeable about the history and craftsmanship of the spirits they served, were an absolute pleasure to interact with.
We cannot truly express our sadness at the loss of Bourbon House. Its closure is a reminder of the struggles that businesses are facing during these trying times and the impact that it is having on our communities. We hope that the owners and staff of Bourbon House are able to find peace and success in their future endeavors, and we will always remember the warmth and joy that they brought us during their time in downtown Salt Lake City.
In closing, we want to extend our deepest sympathies to those affected by the closure of Bourbon House. We encourage everyone to support their local businesses in any way possible – whether it be ordering takeout, purchasing gift cards, or simply spreading the word about a favorite spot. We can all make a difference in these challenging times.
Goodbye, Bourbon House. You will be missed.
