The Boardroom in northern Overland Park has closed for business.

After less than a year in business, The Boardroom Family Pub in Overland Park has closed.

Jon Steel, the owner, said he closed the restaurant at 8725 Metcalf Ave. around Sept. 20. He does not plan to reopen the restaurant, and did not provide a reason for closing.

The Boardroom opened its doors in February 2019, according to the restaurant website. The concept for the restaurant was to serve as public house “where everyone can drink, eat, and enjoy board games.”
