Downtown Austin restaurant Boiler Nine Bar + Grill is closing this month at 800 West Cesar Chavez Street within the Seaholm District. Its last day of service will be on Saturday, February 23.
Boiler Nine’s management company La Corsha Hospitality Group said that the reason behind the shutter is because of “unpaid management fees” from the restaurant’s ownership company Boiler Nine Partners Ltd. Both businesses are talking with the restaurant’s landlord Columbia Texas Seaholm Office Properties to figure out what will happen to the space after the 23rd.
The multi-level restaurant and bar opened in July 2016. There was the main dining level, the subterranean lounge and bar, and the seasonal rooftop restaurant and bar.
La Corsha is still working on opening that East Austin hotel (called, well, East Austin Hotel) on East 6th Street, opening in the spring. The hotel will include a restaurant and two bars overseen by regional executive chef Jason Stude and director of beverage and bars Jason Stevens.
Also under the La Corsha umbrella are two locations of Second Bar and Kitchen, Mattie’s, and several hotels around the state.
