The iconic pub first opened in summer 2005, and was one of the originators of what would become known as the Café District along Hunter Street West as more and more pubs and restaurants opened along the strip, transforming that portion of downtown Peterborough.

Gerti, always a big proponent of having a vibrant and healthy downtown, wrote this goodbye night to patrons on his Facebook page…

“Hello friends,

Alban Sina and I would like to take a moment to announce that after 14 amazing years we have sold Gerti’s and our last night there will be Saturday night. We would like to invite our friends, family, and custumers to stop in for a drink as we celebrate this achievement.

We are thrilled to have sold to Diana Horvatic Hunter, Sean Hunter and Cole McCall as they are excited to continue with business as usual after a few short weeks of renovations. Let’s welcome these guys with open arms, and wish them nothing but success in the years to come.

We want to to thank our customers that have supported us from the day we opened our doors, and the incredible staff that we’ve had over the years. We will forever be grateful!!

With all the love and gratitude,

Gerti, and Alban”
