The COVID-19 lockdown in the city of Springfield has claimed one more business.
Downtown bar Falstaff’s Local announced the news on Saturday night via Facebook.
“Falstaff’s Local is not going to open again,” ownership posted on Facebook. “If you know anyone who wants to rent the prettiest bar downtown, please have them contact us. Or, if anyone wants to rent one of the nicest apartments downtown, we have one left. Thank you for all the support over the years. We had a good run and loved it all.”
Falstaff’s was the main gathering place for fans of the St. Louis Blues during last season’s Stanley Cup winning run. The bar hosted the Cup when it came to Springfield last October as part of “St. Louis Blues Day.”
Falstaff’s is not the first local bar that has announced they would not be reopening after the city’s lockdown. On April 28, Moon City Pub, located on Commercial Street, posted on Facebook they would be selling and not reopening the pub.
