Adieu, Auf Wiedersehen, Good Bye

It is with a heavy heart and a heavy glass of 18 year old bourbon that we at Quinton’s Bar & Deli are leaving our current location of 124 S 9th Street in downtown Columbia. Since the day the place first opened in 1995 Quinton’s has been many things to many people in this community. The irony that we are leaving our home right as it reaches legal drinking age is not lost on us.

We want to thank everyone that made this place home for the last 20+ years. There are countless great times and stories that have come out of this location and which are 100% due to the awesome staff and gracious customers that walked through the doors. While we wind down the last couple of months please feel free to come back and enjoy Quinton’s while it is still in its original form. We would love to see your smiling faces and some of us probably remember your favorite drink.

The construction of a new state of the art 10 story development complete with a parking garage and store fronts for new businesses to occupy downtown is an opportunity for the city to take another step forward. This is also our opportunity to make Quinton’s new again. While the next iteration may take some time, we are confident it will be worth checking out when it’s complete.

We are not looking at this with a tear in our eye while gazing in the rearview mirror. Our focus instead is out the windshield on the road ahead.

Then again… we may have made a huge mistake.
