RIP Sir Edmund Halley's Restaurant and FreeHouse, 1995-2010

Wednesday, July, 21 is the last call for Sir Ed's, the owner has confirmed.

The Charlotte nightlife staple tucked in the elbow of Park Road Shopping Center — which has been awarded for the Guinness pints and late night dining — will shut its doors after tonight.

"It's been 16 years; it's time," the owner said in a lackluster tone. "I'm tired."

Well in that case, it sounds like he's due for retirement, and with that Sir Ed's will close their doors.

Go by tonight and pay your respect.

But you know what they say ... when one door closes, another one opens: The new Duckworth's Grill & Taphouse is thriving in Park Road Shopping Center and there's construction going down at the old Quaker Steak and Lube.
