Blue Restaurant & Bar

Blue Restaurant & Bar, an upscale fixture in Charlotte’s dining scene, is closing today after nearly 14 years in business, The Charlotte Observer reported.

In an email to customers late Monday afternoon, Blue’s management said the restaurant has been sold, and that they will provide “more details about what we are doing soon.”

“We are looking forward to seeing as many of you as we can for one last visit to Blue. Please make a reservation and stop by to say goodbye,” the email read. Reservations can be made online here.

On the company’s website, menu items have been replaced by a “Coming Soon” sign and a digital clock that appears to ticking down to Thursday at midnight.

Blue, located at the corner of 5th and College streets in the Hearst Tower, is owned by Alex Myrick, the stepson of former U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick of Charlotte. With a Mediterranean menu and upscale décor, it became a hot spot for Charlotte residents looking to see and be seen.

The Observer said it could not reach Alex Myrick for comment.
