Last Call: Old Town Pour House Closes Today After 8.5 Years in Gaithersburg

Last Friday we let you know that Old Town Pour House, located at 212 Ellington Drive in Gaithersburg’s Downtown Crown development, will be closing permanently on Tuesday, October 24th. We have been told by several readers that the restaurant had extended waits over the weekend and was busier than usual on Monday. Today will be the last day to have a meal or drink at the Downtown Crown original tenant restaurant/bar.

Old Town Pour House released the following statement after our report, “After10 incredible years in Gaithersburg, our lease is up and we’ve decided to turn off the taps at Old Town Pour House at 212 Ellington Boulevard. This last decade was filled with so many delightful guests and meaningful engagement with an outstanding community, and we consider it a major success for the Bottleneck Management group. We whole-heartedly thank everyone we’ve met along the way for making us a part of their lives. Our last day of service will be Tuesday, October 24th.

We’re so thankful to our team and guests for our 10 years in Gaithersburg. Though this location is closed, you can visit other Bottleneck restaurants across the US.

Having signed on in 2013, it originally opened in March of 2015 with three 110-inch “video wall” screens. The same block has recently suffered the loss of BurgerIM and dessert shop, Doki Toki. The Container Store, however, will be moving in across the street soon.
