Last call: Mackie’s Bar and Grill closing in Old Town next Tuesday

You’ve got a week to order those last burgers, steaks and chicken wings, because after eight years in business in the heart of Old Town, Mackie’s Bar and Grill is closing its doors for the last time next Tuesday (August 30).

The neighborhood bar and steakhouse was unable to negotiate a new lease, owner Sang Lee told ALXnow.

“It’s the only neighborhood bar in Old Town,” Lee said. “I would hope that some of our regulars, when they find out that we are closing, will be here and support us and make sure that the staff make some money before they actually move on. That’s all I can ask.”

Lee is going to take a break for a few months and then decide on whether he wants to reopen in a new location.

The news is a shock for many of the restaurant’s Old Town regulars, including Stu Robinson.

“I don’t know where I’m going to go hang out now,” Robinson said.

Lee said the building owners are in talks with tenants about putting a salon in the space.

“It’s sad, because we have the best wings and the best burgers in town,” Lee said. “I am grateful to all of my friends and customers who made Mackie’s what it is today.”
