ST. LOUIS — A Central West End restaurant has abruptly closed.

1764 Public House closed for business following dinner service on Jan. 12. A spokesperson for Gamlin Restaurant Group said its resources were spread too thin. 

“It is with great sadness that we announce the closing of 1764 Public House effective immediately,” Gamlin Restaurant Group Proprietor Derek Gamlin said. “At our core, we are a family business focused on hospitality. With three establishments, all of our resources were simply spread too thin.”

The restaurant first opened in October 2017 as a tribute to St. Louis’ history and its traditions.

“We look forward to welcoming our valued guests at our other two establishments here in the Central West End, Sub Zero Vodka Bar and Gamlin Whiskey House,” Gamlin said.

1764 Public House gift cards can be redeemed at Sub Zero Vodka Bar and Gamlin Whiskey House, a spokesperson said. Employees will be given priority for current job openings at the restaurant group’s other establishments.

'So sorry to hear this. You guys are amazing and will continue to do great things,' Amanda Korte Hebden wrote on Facebook.

The restaurant was located at 39 N. Euclid.
