Iconic Colorado Springs restaurant closing after 42 years

Sunbird Restaurant's last day in operation will be Feb. 4.

A famous Colorado Springs restaurant known for its spectacular views of Colorado Springs, Pulpit Rock, Cheyenne Mountain and Pikes Peak is preparing to close.

The Sunbird Restaurant has announced it is closing its doors after 42 years of serving the Colorado Springs community.

The bar and grill restaurant, which sits high atop Rattlesnake Hill above I-25, says they are closing their doors on Feb. 5 and will remain open for business through Sun. Feb. 4.

“We want to end on a high note and honor the Sunbird before it takes its last flight. Our guests will have a few more weeks to dine and reminisce with us before we close,” John Tallichet, President and CEO of Specialty Restaurants Corporation which owns the Sunbird, told KOAA-TV. “We hope you’ll stop by, raise a last glass with us and send the Sunbird off in style!”
