Another one bites the dust!

A Toronto bar has succumbed to the pressure of the pandemic and is closing its doors due to a rent increase.

I’ll be seeing you… bar, at 747 Queen Street East, has posted on their Instagram news of its closure.

The bar shuts its doors officially on October 24.

“It’s been an amazing five years with ups, downs and everything in between. With a large rent raise looming, an uncooperative landlord combined with Covid, we have decided to shut the doors,” said the bar on their Instagram page.

“Thanks to everyone who has walked through the doors and truly got us, from our vibe to our menu to our decor. We will truly cherish and will miss all the great memories we’ve had together.”

The Queen Street bar is just one of the many restaurants in Toronto that have struggled and closed due to the looming pandemic.

SoSo Food Club has decided to close its doors, as well as The Office Pub which has made the difficult decision to say goodbye to Toronto following lease issues with its landlord.

The list of restaurant and bar closures continues to grow as the pandemic lingers on.
