SoBro coffee shop, restaurant and cocktail bar Steadfast Commons abruptly closed after this past Saturday night's service, with only a brief message posted to social media earlier that day giving any details as to the reason for the (hopeful) temporary shutter:
But in an email to Eater, Steadfast co-owner Nathanael Mehrens shines a little more light on the issue behind the move:
Although we believe strongly in the program at Commons and the location, we unfortunately had some funding fall through and were forced to temporarily close while we pursue new financial partnership. Our Germantown location continues to thrive and we are very grateful to the neighborhood and the larger Nashville community for their enthusiasm and support of Steadfast. Though we do not have any details yet, we hope to reopen Commons very soon and are meanwhile hosting several events [at Steadfast Commons that] we're very excited to share.
So be sure to check back soon for more updates.
