The Nickel Taphouse, the Mt. Washington eatery specializing in burgers, beers and other American fare, has closed, owner Robbin Haas posted in a note on the restaurant’s Facebook page.

Haas wrote he would be shifting his focus and employees to his other restaurants in the city, Birroteca and Encantada, both of which have larger spaces for private parties.

“We have truly enjoyed serving our community quality, American fare in a warm and inviting atmosphere,” Haas wrote, later adding, “We wish our Mt. Washington neighbors the best and we look forward to seeing you at our other locations.”

Opened in 2013, The Nickel Taphouse opened, as both City Paper and Baltimore magazine noted in reviews, in a bit of a cursed location, where Freda’s Kitchen, The Falls and Blue Sage Café had all opened, only to close a short time later.

But it seemed to win over diners with a simple-yet-well-done menu and welcoming atmosphere.
