    Does anyone know the name of the bar that occupied Skully’s prior to it becoming Skully’s?

    It would be cool to do a trivia game based on previous names of bars and restaurants!! Some have changed several times, others not so much. I was thinking the other day that Sugar used to be Network sushi spot!!! How weird.

    I used to work with a dude that went to OSU during the late 60’s. He liked to reminisce about the year all the girls decided to liberate their fun bags from the oppressive bra. I digress, he told me that The Char bar used to be on Campus, in the area of, if not the location of the South Heidelberg. TMYK.

    after skankland it was “clique”, a miserable failure of a club that i had the unfortunate luck of being involved with.

    Current Skully’s was Skankland. Some shooting connected to the ownership in either the old location or the current Skully’s location led to it’s demise. I don’t remember the details anymore.

    I completely forgot this. Yes, it was next to Sandro’s (super shitty pizza) and below Apollos and the other gyro joint.

    Wildman Dan, where was the original location for Skankland?

    it still amazes me that a bar where the only thing visible inside was an old sofa shaped like lips wasn’t a raging success. who doesn’t want to party on a lip-shaped sofa?

    Ah yes, that’s where I remember it. I had no idea it moved to the Short North.

    Yes, I have fond memories of Chelsies. Played there quite a bit and caught lot’s of good live music there.

    Since we are on the topic of bars gone by, remember Crazy Mammas? Had to climb a steep fire escape to get in..IIRC…or was that to get out? Remember the cable the cops would put up along High Street to keep the cavalcade of drunks from falling into High St traffic. Remember when Papa Joes burnt to the ground? Ah, good times.

    I am fascinated by the change over of bars and how some do really well in the same location just better managed?
