Downtown Evansville Bar Reopens Three Months After Car Crashed Into Building
Three months is a long time for a business to be closed. So, the Peephole Bar & Grill in Downtown Evansville is ready to make up for lost time with their customers.
Why Was the Peephole Bar & Grill Closed?
On Thursday, February 16, 2023, around 2:30 PM, a driver got distracted and drove right smack into the front door of the Peephole Bar & Grill in Downtown Evansville, Indiana. The locally owned spot has been closed so that the damage can be assessed, cleaned up, and rebuilt. As you can see from some of the photos, the damage was way more than just the front door.
We will be closed until further notice due to a vehicle crashing through our front wall minutes ago.Most fortunately, all employees report no major injuries.
Immediately after this crash that closed the Peephole Bar & Grill their Downtown Evansville neighbors stepped up to help raise money for the bartenders and servers. There was a Virtual Tip Jar and several guest bartending events were held too. Seeing that support between businesses was amazing.
The Peephole is Back
It feels like three months have flown by, but I know that is not the case for the owner and employees of the Peephole Bar & Grill. They made an exciting announcement about plans to reopen.
CARMAGEDDON 2023. The sequel to Pandemic 2020-2022 where your bar survives a global killer virus only to have a “Distracted Driver” say “hold my beer” (or pipe?) with-literally-a car bombing. Nearly 3 months later we rise from the ashes. Come see us Wednesday May 3rd 4pm
