It's closing time for Lachey's.
The Cincinnati bar opened by 98 Degrees singers Nick and Drew Lachey will cease operations on Feb. 10, three years after opening its doors, the establishment revealed on its website on Monday.
"We regret to inform everyone that Lachey's will be closing its doors on Sunday, Feb 11," the bar wrote. "This week will be our last week of operations. Party with Nick and Drew at Lachey's one last time this weekend as a final farewell!"
On their own social media, the brothers both shared bittersweet sentiments about the decision to shut down.
"Me and my boys enjoying one last hurrah at @lacheysbar. It’s been an incredible 3 Years full of lifelong memories," Nick wrote, captioning a picture with his kids in one of the booths. "Thank You Cincinnati for helping me realize a dream and the chance to share it with multiple generations of Lacheys and Lachey fans. We will be closing it’s doors after this Saturday night. Let’s make some more amazing memories this weekend and send her out in style!! #lacheysbar."
"As you may have heard, @nicklachey @foureg and I have made the very difficult decision to close the doors of @lacheysbar after this coming weekend," Drew wrote. "While this is a sad moment for us we also feel blessed to have had the opportunity and want to thank everyone that supported us and made this dream come true for the past 3 years. #NextChapter#OnwardAndUpward #ThankYouCincinnati."
Lachey's was the focus of Lachey's Bar, a reality show that ran for one season on A&E in 2015.
Last November, on Thanksgiving morning, bar manager Ellie Richardson was shot in the face at Lachey's, casting a tragic cloud over the establishment. At the time, Lachey's shared a statement about the incident to its Instagram, raising proceeds for her recovery.
