CINCINNATI – Bullseye Bar & Fire Grill in downtown Cincinnati is no more.
The restaurant at 41 E. Sixth St. announced on its website this week in bold text: “WE ARE SORRY.”
“Bullseye Bar and Fire Grill will be closed indefinitely,” the site states. “We want to say thank you to our valued guests for your patronage.”
An El Coyote restaurant, part of a national chain, occupied the same downtown spot for about a year until it was rebranded to Bullseye in March of 2014.
According to Bullseye’s Facebook page , the rebranding was an attempt to give customers a more casual nightspot, describing itself as “downtown Cincinnati’s nightlife destination location. A bar first and foremost who takes great pride in its culinary expertise.”
Bullseye did not give a specific reason for shutting down, but the decision follows a long line of closings on 41 E. Sixth St. over the last few years.
Before Bullseye and El Coyote, the space belonged to Cincy’s On Sixth – known for its burgers, ribs and other traditional American fare.
Before Cincy's On Sixth's opening in 2012, it was Cadillac Ranch. The national chain served a variety of steaks, burgers, seafood, pasta, salads and flatbreads.
Bullseye closed its doors Wednesday, but its owners said they aren’t disappearing: They’re moving to Kentucky.
The exact location or scheduled opening date was not announced.
