Here's Why Rascals In Crossgates Closed


The Albany area was left scratching its head after the brand new restaurant and concert venue Rascals abruptly closed its doors on Monday. It had been open for barely 7 months when employees were told very little information, except that they wouldn't be needed for the foreseeable future. 

That's for sure. Apparently, contractors rushed to get the $3.2 million space ready for a July 1st opening. Now, after its sudden closing, the Albany Business Review says contractors say they are owed in the ballpark of $880,000 - of which they doubt they'll see little, if any of it. 

So if financial difficulties were plaguing the restaurant this early, perhaps that's what led to the closing.
