— After a decade in business, Cameron Bar and Grill has closed permanently, owner Gaurav "G" Patel announced via Facebook Tuesday.

"As we continue to navigate this time of economic uncertainty with our hospitality industry peers we’ve made the difficult decision to permanently close, effective immediately. We will miss serving our Cameron Bar & Grill neighbors who have become friends over the past years and we hope you’ll continue to support other locally-owned eateries here in the Village who truly create the local flavor that Raleigh is known for serving with Southern hospitality," Patel wrote on Facebook.

Cameron Bar and Grill's sister properties, Edwards Mill Bar and Grill and The Haymaker, will remain open. Edwards Mill Bar and Grill has recently reopened for dine-in service. The Haymaker has not been allowed to reopen yet because it is a cocktail bar. Bars were not part of the Phase 2 reopening plan put into effect by Gov. Roy Cooper on Friday.

In March, Haymaker teamed up with upcoming Raleigh cocktail bar Killjoy to open Crosstown Cocktail Catering, which offers cocktail mixers to go.

Patel, a veteran of the hospitality industry, launched "Hope for Hospitality" at the beginning of April. The effort provides hospitality workers affected by the virus with one free meal per weekday at one of the group's partner restaurants.
