After less than three months in its new incarnation, NW 21st's Temple Bar (the cocktail lounge was formerly the restaurant Indish) has closed its doors with immediate effect. Owner Raj Sharma tells Eater:
We had some plumbing issues last week which meant we had to take a couple of days off. That break gave us an opportunity to take a look at how the business would develop going forward. After considering all of the available options we think now is the best time to bow out gracefully and close The Temple Bar. Time for us to move on.
Indish opened in the fall of 2008, serving Northern-influenced Indian cuisine; the Temple Bar debuted in February of this year, highlighting Sharma's passion for classic cocktails and whisky.
