In a surprise message owner Darrell Sullivan announced that Sully’s Pub is closed at least temporarily, and perhaps for a longer period of time.  Sullivan made this announcement on his personal facebook page:

“Unfortunately it appears to be the end of an era for my businesses Lena’s Pizza and Sully’s Pub at this time they have been closed. Time will tell if it’s for good or not. A number of deals were on the table but my landlord chose this route rather than letting the place to run while a new situation was put into place. After many years of being taxed out of existence by the city of Hartford. I did my best to let the love shine in and I feel for the most part we were successful. My apologies to all the bands whose shows are affected and to my employees who deserve better. From the bottom of my heart I hope we can all make it right.”

Sully’s has been a fixture of the Hartford music scene for decades.  Well known as a fun place to hang out from their tiki bar out on the back porch to the music room, and the accompanying pizza restaurant Lena’s, northern Connecticut music fans and blue collar socialites hung out here for a good time, a good beer, and some good music.

And live music was a founding principle of Sully’s.  Their mission, “Hartford’s Sully’s Pub lives by one simple rule, “Original Music must be supported on every level of society.” We are proud to stand on the front lines of musical evolution, and blaze a trail with the musicians who compose and perform original tunes of every kind.”

Many bands found that Sully’s was one of the only welcoming venues for them, and while other music venues focused on national or regional talent- Sully’s would try anything and featured bands from metal to hip hop to jam bands.

From Lovewhip to Uncle Sammy, Zach Deputy to the BRYAC all stars, Dapparascal, New Amsterdam Nobles, Gracie Day, Someone You can Xray, Freekbass, Power and Force, Jen Durkin, and the entire New England music scene over the years has passed through the doors of Sully’s Pub.  Let’s hope that there is some sort of revival for this CT institution.
