Late Night Slice Opening Full Service Restaurant and Bar Downtown
Late Night Slice has called Columbus Commons home for the past two summer seasons, and is ready for an upgrade in 2015. The popular local pizza shop will make the move from the pop-up shack in the park over to 268 South Fourth Street, the former home of Graham Office Supply.
“For past six months we’ve kept our eye on that space, as we thought it would be the perfect spot for our new concept,” said Late Night Slice owner Mikey Sorboro. “That concept being a full service restaurant where we take all the things that we do well — pizza and the bar stuff — and putting it all under one roof.”
Sorboro described the new restaurant as one part Mikey’s and one part Oddfellows Liquor Bar. He said that the 3,500 square foot restaurant would feature an extended menu with salads and appetizers, and the second floor of the building will house a new 3,500 square foot event venue available for rent.
The new restaurant will begin construction immediately with a target opening planned sometime this Spring. Sorboro says that the new location will be the testing grounds for the full service concept before taking it outside Columbus for expansion plans targeting other Ohio cities.
“We want to open it here first to stretch out legs before we start taking it around the state,” he added. “We’ve been paying a lot of attention to what areas are attracting crowds, and South Fourth Street seemed to key for this.”
The new Late Night Slice will be joined next door by Tavernesque, a new bar and restaurant concept from new Bodega owner Brian Swanson. Around the corner on Main Street, The Walrus live music venue and bar is also scheduled for a Spring opening.
The former LNS location at Columbus Commons will be replaced with Tortilla mexican street food for the 2015 summer season.
