Last night the management of Ri Ra Restaurant here in Evansville announced they will no longer be open for business and immediately closed their doors.

UPDATE: Ri Ra released the following statement on Monday morning.

"After 12 great years in Evansville, it is with sadness that we have to announce that Rí Rá has closed its doors for the last time.

Despite our ongoing efforts, the business faced increasingly difficult trading conditions. Our landlord, Tropicana Evansville, has been extremely supportive in our attempts to find a path forward but unfortunately, we both agree that at this stage we have no option but to close our pub.

Over the last twelve years, we have immensely enjoyed getting to know you and the local community, earning your friendship, watching your families grow, hearing your great stories, and of course, sharing with you, the perfect pint or two!

Thank you for your support over the years and for sharing your lives with us."
