Earl's in Cherry Creek has closed

Earl's is no longer pouring in Cherry Creek.
The construction projects that have tangled traffic in Cherry Creek might have been the final straw. On Friday, as World Cup fans were hunting for a place to watch the game, they found that Earl's in Cherry Creek had closed its doors.

A sign on the door of the restaurant that opened in late 2009 states: "We are sorry to announce that this Earl's location unfortunately closed its doors on Friday, June 20," and directs customers to other Earl's locations. There are still two Earl's outposts in the Denver area: one in Park Meadows and another on the 16th Street Mall.

And Earl's sent out this followup note Monday afternoon:

Earl's, like many of our neighbors, struggled with the ongoing construction around us. Numerous street closures for well over a year, the loss of street parking and access blocked to additional parking, even occasional power loss, made it difficult to conduct business in any kind of consistent manner. Surrounded by additional construction by the City of Denver in the past two months made it impossible to continue to operate and like a number of other neighboring businesses, this location is, unfortunately, closed permanently.

We thank you for your past patronage; staff and management will be relocated to our two locations downtown and in Lone Tree. We look forward to welcoming you there.

Good riddance. Awful food, full of aging former bros and the last single hoes who couldn't find parking at Elways.

So sad! I love that place AND location. I must confess too that all the construction did deter recent visits.

Not that I would go to Earls but the distater of roads that is Cherry Creek keeps me away as well.

@Denver Dave Thank goodness Hillstone, Cherry Creek Grill, North and True Food Kitchen are still open. 

I'll suffer a panic attack if I dine at an independent restaurant.

@denvergregg Hi,

I thought you might like to hear that there will soon be a new eatery in the Shead's space, namely, The Catfish King.

@denvergregg That is definitely too bad. Unless I'm missing one I think that was the family's last remaining eatery.
