The party appears over for the Holiday House, the classic-meets-contemporary restaurant that opened in September 2005 at 525 E. Menomonee St.

Owner Joe Volpe closed his doors on Sunday, Aug. 5.

Holiday House earned several favorable reviews after opening two years ago in the Third Ward.

Volpe launched his lounge, V Bar, 703 S. 2nd St., in April 2007.  That venue, he says, will stay open and has no plans of closing. 

Volpe's grandfather ran the original Milwaukee Holiday House, which was located on the corner of Clybourn and Van Buren Streets from the 1940s through the '60s.
