Cowtippers Steaks & Spirits on Piedmont Avenue in Midtown closes for good on Thursday, December 27, after 25 years. The popular LGBTQ restaurant and bar officially announced the closure on its website — finally answering the year-long question of will it or won’t it shutter.

The Midtown restaurant is likely being demolished to make way for a Chase bank. Cowtippers was saved — albeit temporarily — last winter following an outpouring of public support to keep it open.

Rumors are circulating that Metrotainment Cafes, which also owns Joe’s on Juniper, Einstein’s, and Hudson Grille, isn’t ruling out the possibility of reopening Cowtippers in another location at some point. However, nothing has been confirmed.

In the meantime, Cowtippers will be open on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day for one more round of holiday steaks and cocktails, before closing its doors after dinner on December 27.
