ST. LOUIS — A popular Central West End venue will be up for auction Wednesday night, more than a month after it closed due to the impact of COVID-19.
Gamlin Whiskey House closed permanently on May 22, along with SubZero Vodka Bar. The restaurants were owned by Gamlin Restaurant Group and had been staples for more than a decade. Both had doing well before the pandemic, owner Derek Gamlin said.
BCL Auction told 5 On Your Side that it will begin an online auction for the restaurant at 8 p.m. It already auctioned SubZero Vodka Bar, as well as 1764 Public House, which was also owned by Gamlin Restaurant Group but closed before the pandemic.
A public preview is from 11 a.m. for 2 p.m. for interested buyers who want to see items in person. BCL Auction said it has seen a lot of interest in the auction.
Owner Derek Gamlin previously said that he would be filing for bankruptcy.
"Everyone that's reached out has been so supportive, and I want to thank everyone because this has been a very hard time for my family at I," he told 5 on Your Side reporter Jenna Barnes. "It's devastating for my entire family."
