Less than two months after reopening, Quan Hapa has closed again.
The Lang Thang Group announced in a Facebook post on Jan. 5 that their Over-the-Rhine Asian gastropub will be closed indefinitely due to staffing and other issues related to the pandemic.
Quan Hapa closed in October 2021 for renovations and a refresh, reopening on Nov. 17.
In the post, the group stated that they have had a difficult few months since reopening and several members of their staff, of which they say is already small, have made “a trip to the Reserve/Covid List.”
“We have made the difficult decision to pause Quan Hapa for the time being to re-staff and adjust some food/service/operations items to make Quan Hapa even better when we can re-open,” the group wrote.
The group says they do not have a timeline for when the restaurant will be reopening. However, they say that all of Quan Hapa's available staff will be working at the group’s other restaurant, Pho Lang Thang, which will now expand its hours.
Starting Jan. 11, Pho Lang Thang will be open Tuesday through Sunday for lunch and dinner will now be served Thursday through Saturday.
Pho Lang Thang is located at 1828 Race St. in Over-the-Rhine. Find more information at pholangthang.com.
