Local hospitality industry fixture Jeremy Barlow announced the closure of his two neighboring casual restaurants in 12 South, Sloco and The Meet Room, via an Instagram post over the weekend.

In the note, Barlow writes “Change is good. It’s time for me to move on and try something else.” He states that he has sold both restaurants, and that each will operate under a limited schedule for the next week until the closure under his watch on May 20.

Sloco has been a popular sandwich shop known for local ingredients and quick service, while The Meet Room served as a neighborhood watering hole and hangout for the 12 South area.

Barlow adds, “We were successful in our goal to build a place for the community to gather and connect. A modern hearth. The new owners will continue this work and this sense of community. I’m excited to see what they do and even more excited to get to hang with everyone on the other side of the bar!! It’s still my neighborhood joint.”

Barlow has run restaurants in Nashville for over 20 years, most notably his erstwhile Hillsboro Village eatery Tayst, which closed at the end of 2012 after nine years in business. Reps from Sloco couldn’t be immediately reached for additional details on the future of the space. The full Instagram post is embedded below.
