Closing our doors

It is with heavy hearts that we will be closing our doors, effective immediately, at Tipping Chair Tavern.

We have had many challenges through the pandemic and seemed to navigate our way through, but with recent pitfalls we can no longer stay open. We found a solution with our outdoor concert series that helped us through the roughest times of the pandemic. It was a huge help and success in keeping our business afloat through the slow months of the summer, especially after the pandemic affected our winter months when we are usually busy.

Unfortunately, the logistics of trying to maintain the summer concert series in our location was not possible for a permanent solution. With no summer concert series compounded with the high price of goods and soaring insurance rates we are not able to sustain a successful business.

We appreciate all the support and patronage over the last 8 years as we took this journey together.

We have learned a lot, met many new friends, and are very grateful for the experience. The events and shows we have had over the years have been nothing short of amazing and we will miss bringing this entertainment to all that enjoyed it. We have had some of the best local bands and brought in musicians from all over the world. TCT was one of the few businesses that was extremely dedicated to the live music scene and supported as much live music as humanly possible. We believe we brought a unique experience that was one of a kind and will be missed.
We would like to thank all the musicians that supported us through the years, all the staff that worked for us, the Town of Southington who was always very supportive and all the fans and customers who got to enjoy the wonderful food, drinks, atmosphere and of course, the live music.

A special thank you to the current staff who has been by our side through thick and thin, who all worked very hard to make us successful.
You can see our past performances on our Facebook and we will be going through our archive to post additional stellar performances from the early years.

We plan on using the space for now to host private events and parties, so if you are interested in having the Tipping Chair Tavern all to yourself and your friends, please reach out at:

Thank you again for all your love and support

“Happy Trails to You Until We Meet Again”
