Popular local bar closed in New Haven

A popular local bar closed its door in New Haven. The Anchor Bar was opened for more than 20 years.

According to a statement from Yale University Properties, the owners of the Anchor Bar did not follow their lease agreements and were not paying their rent on time. Yale University Properties owns the building on College Street.

Now there’s a push from locals hoping to keep the bar open. They’ve started a change.org petition to save the bar. The GoFundMe.com helps the employees who will be out of work.
