Owners Marc and Conor Bereen confirmed the news on Thursday afternoon, noting that the venue's landlord is moving ahead with a long-planned redevelopment of the premises.

The future of the site is unknown, with the current occupants hopeful that the restaurant could eventually reopen.

"Coppinger Row restaurant was at the heart of the South William Street renaissance – opening during the global recession in a quiet side street in the former rag trade quarter and building a new vibe with the help of a fun and dynamic team and our wonderfully loyal customers - it’s been quite a journey," said Marc Bereen.

"We are focused on our sister restaurant Charlotte Quay and an intimate new neighbourhood project on Dublin’s southside, but in the meantime, come make new memories with us in the lead up to Christmas at Coppinger Row.

"We are hopeful that Coppinger Row could reopen in the redeveloped premises if we can get the landlord to agree to not go to market."

As well as proving popular with the general public, the restaurant has enjoyed the company of many celebrities over the years, including Beyoncé and George Clooney.

"It's our regulars that we’ll miss the most," said Conor Bereen.

"They made us and kept us going through tough times. We like to think we played our part in making our neighbourhood so great, and we will miss it hugely. But watch this space – literally."
