Beer-and-wine patio bar The Hop & Vine announced it is closing after eight years at its North Killingsworth Street location.

"My husband and I have decided not to renew the lease as the expense to proceed with a new lease was too great," owner Yetta Vorobik-Yakobson wrote.

The owners say they hope to reopen Hop & Vine in a different location, with a similar ambiance and larger kitchen. The space was previously a market and a salon before being remodeled between 2007 and 2009.

The restaurant will be open through July and will be announcing special goodbye events.
