Doors Close at Sullivan’s Irish Pub
The employees were told not to return, and the popular Madison Avenue eatery has been shuttered since Friday.
The lights are on at Sullivan’s Irish Pub, but there’s no one home.
In fact, the doors of the popular Madison Avenue restaurant and pub are shut and locked.
Several large boxes, stuffed with decorations, can be seen through the windows.
The parking lot is empty and a cone blocks the rear entrance on Chesterland Avenue.
Employees were told last Friday not to come into work — and not much else.
It’s not clear whether the business has closed temporarily, or permanently.
The employees don’t know either.
Rich Nedly, who owns the business, did not return several calls seeking comment, and neither did Patrick Sullivan — who sold the business to Nedly.
Sullivan still owns the building.
An Irish-music band scheduled to perform at the restaurant was locked out when they tried to play on Friday.
More than a few customers stopped by during the weekend, then left disappointed.
“(Nedly) handed back the keys (to Sullivan) and walked away,” said a former employee who asked to not be identified.
