Last Night For Fred's Bar & Grill

A bar and grill is closing its doors tonight after being in the Jacobsville neighborhood for almost three decades.

Fred's Bar and Grill going out with a bang with the last call for food and drinks. 

29 years, 1 month and 9 days, Fred's Bar and Grill, a time capsule for many.

Amy Willman Pendleton, who is a daughter of the owners says, "I'm a little sad, it's the end of an era it's kind of cool."

Chris Pendleton, a son-in-law to the owners says, "The bar has been like another member of the family."

But for co-owners Barbara and Fred, it's time for a new chapter. 

"I'm feeling pretty happy ready to go to Florida," Barbara says. 

Daughter of the co-owner Tara Coomes says, "I'm sad and happy at the same time you know everything has to come to an end and we've had a good ride and it's time to try something new in life."

A bittersweet night marking the end of a new beginning as Fred's Bar and Grill has the last call for alcohol. 

Whiles Fred's is closing, it's not the end for the friendships built on this corner. 

Co-Owner Fred Willman says, "I'd just like to thank everybody and the city of Evansville for keeping me and my family alive for all these years."

Many, just thankful for the memories.

There will be an auction June 19 where everything inside the building will be up for sale.
