THE SOUNDRY NOW CLOSED
CLYDE’S OF COLUMBIA TO CLOSE JULY 18TH
Clyde’s Restaurant Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of Graham Holdings Company (NYSE: GHC) has announced that it will close its Columbia locations effective July 19, 2020.
“Clyde’s has had a tremendous 45-year run and we are so grateful for the terrific support of the wonderful Columbia community,” says John McDonnell, Chief Operating Officer of Clyde’s Restaurant Group. “It breaks our heart to be closing– but after several years of struggling sales, the pandemic, and the challenges music venues are now facing as a result, 2020 has dealt us a blow we simply cannot overcome.”
The first Maryland property opened by the popular Washington-based restaurant group, Clyde’s of Columbia has been serving Howard County since 1975. The Soundry, located adjacent to Clyde’s on Lake Kittamaqundi, opened in 2018 as an intimate music venue and event space.
McDonnell also added that the company hopes to retain the Columbia staff at other Clyde’s locations, which include 11 restaurants throughout Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. “The priority right now is taking care of our people,” says McDonnell. “Our other locations will benefit greatly from the talented and dedicated team from Columbia.”
