Somewhere in Augusta Has Closed Permanently
The owners of local sports bar Somewhere in Augusta had made plans to open somewhere else. That isn’t the case anymore.
The bar, considered by locals to be one of the best in Augusta, has permanently closed, according to a Facebook post made by one of the owners on Sunday.
The owners of the bar, John and Cindy Fiske, had reportedly planned to re-open the bar elsewhere after leaving their Washington Road location, which is now occupied by the soon-to-open Metro Diner.
But on Sunday, Cindy announced on Somwhere in Augusta’s Facebook page that the restaurant and bar would be closing for good, and that the Fiske’s would be spending more time with their family.
“To all of SIA’s loyal fans and customers: Over the past 9 months I have been able to take a step back and enjoy family time that has been missing the last 7 years. I realized I have missed out on a lot as the restaurant business is very demanding, so I have decided to retire so I can spend more time with my family. We all made many friends, had great times and have wonderful memories to look back on. Thank you for all of your support over the years.”
The Fiske’s have owned Somewhere in Augusta since 2010.
