A Joliet Bar Serves Their Last Beer on Tuesday

A Joliet bar has closed for good. The owners of O’Charley’s says they closed their doors and served the last beer on Tuesday, August 17th. O’Charley’s Irish Pub has been serving the community since 1988. They’re located at 117 North Center Street. On Facebook the owners wrote this post on Tuesday:

“With a very heavy heart….
O’charleys will close its doors for the final time tonight….
“its been a good run for 40 years and we would like to extend a big thank you! to all the friends who patronized us with their loyal support. We were blessed with your friendship and will miss you all very much.
We hope the time you spent with us at O’charleys was as good for u as it was for us.
However, given todays circumstances with Covid and in general, people moving on, we felt it was time to shut her down.
A lot of great memories and a lot of great friends have been made over these 40 yrs!!
God bless and be safe..
From your family at O’Charley’s Irish Pub”
