Late Night Slice and Candle Lab Opening New Downtown Locations
The former Yankee Trader buildings have landed two more tenants. Mikey’s Late Night Slice and The Candle Lab are bringing their new locations to 459 N. High St. and 457 N. High St., respectively.
“We are happy that we found awesome local businesses to fill in the block,” said Zach Price of TRIAD Architects, the group renovating the buildings. “We also like that these businesses will help activate the block for both residents and visitors, bringing locals that are familiar with the brands into the neighborhood as well as sending convention goers out with great Columbus experiences.”
TRIAD’s first phase of redevelopment, inserting Bareburger, Denmark on High, TRIAD’s headquarters and luxury apartments at 463 N. High St., was completed in 2014. The commercial tenants for the second and third floors of phase two are still being determined, however, according to a press release.
Mikey Sorboro of Mikey’s Late Night Slice said LNS lovers can expect the new store to be similar to their South Fourth Street location, bringing together a “full bar, eclectic interior and fast casual format.” Part of the buildout will include a basement, which Sorboro is excited to transform into its own space, “like a speakeasy or something similar.” Steve Weaver of The Candle Lab hopes to collaborate with LNS and nearby Bareburger to make an all-encompassing food, drink, and candle-making experience.
However the function of the basement space turns out, being a historic site, tenants and visitors alike can look forward to a building with restored tin ceilings, original wood floors, and prism glass on the storefronts. Sorboro said they’re looking forward to an opening near the holidays.
