Well, that was fast.
Triple Double, a sports bar which opened in early October with hopes to benefit from its location near the new Golden 1 Center, has closed, Cowtown Eats has confirmed.
The restaurant had just opened earlier this month.
On Wednesday morning, Cowtown Eats spoke to Joseph Waltz, one of Triple Double's owners whom I interviewed in April, who confirmed that the restaurant had closed. He declined to elaborate further, citing a need to talk to his lawyer.
This is the latest odd occurrence with the restaurant. Just before it opened, the Sac Biz Journal's Sonya Sorich reported that two out of the four known partners had left the venture.
As of earlier this week, Triple Double's Web Site had been taken down. By Oct. 16, posts on Yelp started reporting the restaurant had closed.
The Sac Biz Journal's Sonya Sorich was the first person I saw reporting that the restaurant may be closed.
This story continues to develop, and I'm working to confirm a couple more items. I'll write more if I hear more. If you worked at the restaurant or had any knowledge how/why the closing happened, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Triple Double was located at 419 J Street.

First Impressions: Mexican fare meets Angus chuck at Rancho Cordova spot South Beach Grill - South Beach Grill opened in April, largely because “Carlos worked in (the Rancho Cordova) area for years and he thought there was the need for good-quality food,” Carolina Ocampo said. “You become part of a community after you spend so much time in it.” The restaurant is in the space formerly occupied by the well-known Ike’s Deli, which moved to a nearby location, got a new owner and was renamed Pocket Deli.

Booze on a bike bar? It’s about time, California - Last weekend, Gov. Jerry Brown cracked open the proverbial bottle on that, signing legislation that would allow riders to imbibe on a pedicab as long as their city permits it and there’s a safety monitor – or sober driver – on board. My guess is this will happen in Sacramento sooner rather than later. But don’t panic, curmudgeons. It won’t be that bad. Trust me. Erika D. Smith in the Sac Bee.
