Gastropub Public School 404 has closed its West Midtown location.

The restaurant announced the closure on its website:

After serving the wonderful city of Atlanta, Public School 404 has permanently closed its doors. It has been a pleasure to be a part of this amazing community. Thank you!

General manager Brandy Ramsey confirmed to What Now Atlanta that the restaurant's last day was May 15, just two days after reopening for dine-in service.

Public School 404, which was billed as a "chef-driven gastropub," opened in 2017 in the Brady complex  at 930 Howell Mill Road, serving a seasonal menu featuring pizza, burgers and other small plates and entrees. The eatery also offered happy hours and games including darts, life-size Jenga and Connect Four.

The Public School chain, owned by Grill Concepts, has other locations in California, Texas, Colorado and Nevada.

Public School 404 is the latest in a growing list of food and beverage establishments to close their doors amid the coronavirus pandemic. Other recent closures include the Roswell location of C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar, Ri Ra Irish pub in Midtown and the Emory Village location of Lucky's Burger and Brew.

A representative for Public School restaurants did not immediately respond to a request for more information about the closure.
