Danny Orazietti said Downtown Danny O\u2019s had a good run. The well-known bar in downtown Shelton has closed. \u201cWe sold it,\u201d Orazietti said on Saturday morning. \u201cWe shut it last week and are clearing out inventory.\u201d He said the partnership that has purchased the business is expected to reopen it as a restaurant and bar, with perhaps more of an emphasis on food. \u201cThey should do well,\u201d Orazietti said. The Oraziettis \u2014 Danny and his brother, Dave, who are both Shelton natives \u2014 will continue to own the three-story brick building on Howe Avenue that houses the former Downtown Danny Os. \u201cIt\u2019s fortunate that we own the property,\u201d Danny Orazietti said. Original Danny O\u2019s still open In addition, the original Danny O\u2019s Bar & Grille on River Road, farther south on Route 110 in Shelton, remains very much in business.

Dave Orazietti primarily ran the Downrown Danny O\u2019s while Danny Orazietti focuses on the original Danny O\u2019s Bar & Grille. The night before Thanksgiving Danny Orazietti said he has many fond memories of the downtown bar, which he and his brother purchased, refurbished and renamed 13 years ago. \u201cIt was a great place,\u201d he said. Orazietti said he remembers some of the big crowds the place would attract on the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving, when many younger people would return to the area and spend a night out with friends while in town to be with their families for the holiday. \u201cIt was probably the most popular place in the Valley for that night,\u201d Orazietti said. St. Patrick\u2019s Day crowds Another big day for the former downtown establishment was St. Patrick\u2019s Day, when parking lots in the central business district would overflow with patrons heading to the downtown bar with the most obvious Irish connection. After all, it\u2019s landmark vertical marguee sign in front features a shamrock and its second-floor event space was called the Green Room. Danny Orazietti said the sale of the downtown business will allow his brother Dave to focus more on his real estate business, which was his desire.
