The restaurant that was Engine House No. 5 is one of the ‘Ghosts of Columbus Past‘ that has been brought up a few times when some reminisce. The restaurant closed in 1993 when its owner Chuck Muer was lost at sea with his wife Betty. It sat for a few years as the building owner waited for a new restaurant to come along. In 2004, the team at Big Red Rooster found the space and thought it would be perfect for their creative brand experience firm. They completed renovations to bring the historical charm back to the space. I recently took a tour of their office space.
Below are a few photos that show off the space.
