It’s the end of an era for Miami Hurricanes fans (who, we sadly admit, had a rough sports year and are still haunted by the destruction of the beloved Orange Bowl).
Now things are worse, because Tavern in the Grove is closing after 33 years.
The bar, which conservatively bled oceans of orange and green and was one of Miami’s favorite places to watch the Canes, announced on Instagram that it’s closing later this month.
“We truly regret to inform you that our legendary dive bar is about to become legend in the name of big business,” the post said. “We are as sad as you are to lose this historic piece of Coconut Grove because unlike most places we frequent these days, Tavern has soul.”
The post goes on to urge regulars to stop by one last time before the doors at 3416 Main Highway close for good:
“Share a story and reminisce over a beer or few in this iconic Grove staple before it’s gone.”
The bar’s last night is Sunday, Jan. 19.
