Halligan Bar & Grill in Short Pump to close for good

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - The owners of Halligan Bar & Grill in Short Pump have decided to close its doors for good.

Shawn Gregory posted an update on Facebook saying the restaurant will close its doors on Sunday.

Dear Halligans fans and valued patrons,

"Over the years the Halligan Bar and Grill has donated thousands of dollars to the community, supported various Fire Services programs and localities," the restaurant's marketing director said in an email.

The Halligan Bar & Grill in Shockoe Bottom was undergoing renovations but decided to close for good, while the location in Ashland is still open.

The restaurant was named after a halligan bar, a tool used to break down doors.

Gregory is a retired firefighter with more than 20 years of service to the Henrico Fire Department.
