I want to apologize for starting this rumor about Larry’s Bar seemingly going out of business.
I made the assumption the bar was closed when I discovered their number disconnected and then stopped by Sunday night to find their lights off, several door windows broken and papers scattered on the ground inside; I popped in the Chinese restaurant next door during the week and one of the employees said they believed Larry’s closed recently.
This, apparently, is not the case. I apologize for the mix-up and I am sorry to hear that my misconception was echoed to Greater Columbus. Larry’s is one of my favorite Campus bars so I am glad to hear it’s still kicking. I would love to write about the bar for an upcoming 5 O’Clock Somewhere article.October 30, 2008 1:35 pm at 1:35 pm #238427

Seems like a reasonable assumption anyone would have made.October 30, 2008 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm #238428

Got some bad news from Alive bar reviewer Bryan Bullock: Windows at Larry’s Bar are boarded up, and the phone number to the establishment open since the 1920s has been disconnected.
Bullock was trying to write about the longtime Campus favorite, 2040 N. High St., in this week’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere column. The website, which is rarely updated, had no word of the bar closing.
