Just in February 2015, People's Republic changed management, concept, and got a make-over. Since then, it seemed mostly empty
Here is what the reader, who lives close to the establishment had to say:
"I have seen so many iterations in that space, most of them abysmal: operated by novices who had no idea of how to run a restaurant and so ended up focusing on drinkers. It had been a nice sports bar but the owner/manager became tired of the late nights on top of his day job. The group that took over was quiet but didn't seem to attract many customers.
We can only hope for a good restaurant or a store that replaces the businesses we've lost (Housewares, stationery, hardware, a good grocery). But given the layout (patio in back, bar in front), my guess is another restaurant/bar. If so, let's hope the emphasis is on food, not late-night carousing!"
No mention of this latest remodeling/ closing appears on the gastropub's web site or Facebook page.
Have you heard anything? If it is definitely closed, will you miss it?
For those who have been in the neighborhood for a few years, you may remember that this space used to house "Sapodilla", a restaurant, which, for a short period in 2008, became an event space.
