Thursday’s Shuts its Doors After 40 Years

After nearly 40 years, Thursday’s is closing its doors.

The longstanding Crescent Street bar and restaurant was sold last May after a developer came to owner Bernard Ragueneau with an offer he couldn’t refuse.

Thursday’s has been in business since 1973 and celebrated its last official day of business on September 9th.

Future development will see the demolition of Thursday’s and the adjacent Hotel de la Montagne, both owned by Ragueneau, as well as other buildings between 1421 and 1449 Crescent Street. It’s part of a $150-million project to add an extra floor to Maison Ogilvy.

If you’re a fan of the unique items displayed throughout Thursday’s, there will be a huge garage sale this Saturday when they’ll be getting rid of all the unique decorations from around the world. Pretty much everything inside Hotel de la Montagne must go too, including statues, lamps, furniture, linens, towels, coffee machines, and lots more.

All proceeds from the garage sale will be donated to the Sainte-Justine Hospital.
