Julep restaurant shuts down


JACKSON, MISS. – A Jackson favorite is closing its doors for good Sunday and no one is explaining why.

Customers got one last taste of their Julep favorites over the weekend. The restaurant and bar will shut down for good Sunday night at 10.

We talked with the restaurant owner, who did not want to go on camera and refused to answer questions about the decision. A manager on staff confirmed that they were in fact shutting down.

Some employees told us they weren’t even told exactly why this swift change is taking place.

This change comes on the heels of another closure. Mint, also operated by the same owners, closed earlier this year.

As for what’s next, we were told there are no immediate plans to relocate.

Julep has been serving the Jackson area from more than 10 years.
