“4.5 years ago we set out on the journey of creating a space where we could explore cocktail excellence and share unique experiences with all our guests. And it has been an incredible ride,” the text continues.

“We have hosted some of the best bartenders from across the country, celebrated birthdays, engagements, promotions, and just regular old Monday nights with so many of you. We got to see so many first dates turn into relationships and lasting partnerships, we were able to taste some of the best spirits from around the world with some of the best regular customers in the city, and learn more about this amazing craft with you all along the way.”

The post says that the bar will be closing its doors on January 27, and invites Torontonians to visit before then.

The caption closes with: “Until we meet again!”

Perhaps Toronto can hope to see more from the people behind Rush Lane in the future.
