Clarendon Grill Closes for Renovations

Without much warning, the iconic Clarendon Grill closed its doors on Sunday. The Grill is undergoing a renovation process that is expected to last into September.

Popular local cover band Gonzo’s Nose was the last band to play at the “old” Clarendon Grill. A restaurant rep says the new Grill will still host bands and have a dancefloor — but refused to divulge any additional details.

Clarendon Grill will remain under the same management, the rep said. It’s unclear whether it will retain its name.

A tipster tells us part of the plan includes extending the main bar and adding a secondary bar in another section of the restaurant.

A message posted yesterday on the Grill’s Facebook page reads: “Thank you all for 15 incredible years. Stay tuned for what’s next……….”
