Schiller’s Shipped off to Boulder, Colorado (Sort of)

Posted on: September 8th, 2017 at 5:04 am by

The last bit of Schiller’s Liquor Bar was shipped to Boulder, Colorado, last week. Apparently the bar-top itself, furniture, and exterior neon lights are together bound for a new steakhouse in the mile high city.

Restaurant interior designer Emily Frantz tells us that the items were purchased and sent to the CP Restaurant Group. The company, which also owns the Monarch Aspen, may try to incorporate the furnishings in the aforementioned new eatery, living out their days mile-high.

As previously reported, the fourteen-year-old Schiller’s succumbed to a substantial rent hike, and closed on August 13. Management first disclosed the closure back in May with an email blast explaining the situation. Schiller’s was offered a lease renewal, but didn’t take it due to the increased monthly dole.

Restaurateur Keith McNally opened Schiller’s at 131 Rivington Street in 2003.
