If you happened to pass by the Late Night Slice shack in the Short North yesterday, then you may have been able to witness its final hours in existence. The structure went through a quick demolition process by hand as several LNS employees chipped in to take the building down in advance of its shipping container replacement.

“It’s a real delicate dance, getting the shack down yesterday, the new shed came today, and containers on Wednesday,” said LNS owner Mikey Sorboro. “We couldn’t have asked for better weather though.”

Sorboro said that the front of the old shack is being salvaged and repurposed as a design element for the new shipping container configuration. One long 45-foot container will stretch across the middle of the site, a 20-foot container will be stacked on top as signage, and another 20-foot container will sit along the south side of the property with a built-out bar inside.

Meanwhile, work has also begun on the new Downtown Late Night Slice restaurant that is coming to 268 South Fourth Street this summer.

“We broke ground about a week ago and just got the demolition finished,” said Sorboro. “Compton will be starting this week on construction, and we’re still shooting for a June opening.”
