Windsor - Jun. 20, 2013 - A few months ago it was announced that a fixture on the Windsor bar scene would close this month. Papa Cheney’s Whiskey Well, located on Riverside Drive East between Ouellette and Goyeau, will close next Monday, June 24th, after the annual fireworks display on the Detroit River. Kind of fitting, actually, to go out with a bang.
The home of the famous “Fishbowl” and “Toonie Tuesday” has been serving up great grub and plenty of whiskey for many years. The lease is up, and the owners decided a few months ago that they weren’t going to renew.
With all of the character of the place, here’s hoping it will reopen as another spot for Windsorites and visitors to enjoy a great time.
