Students will have to pack up their schooners and put them on their shelves — Chumley’s bar is closing.
The last day will be Monday, an employee told The Lantern.
“As much as I hate to comment on rumors and speculation, we are closing,” said Charles Steele, a server.
Chumley’s sits on the block of North High Street between East 16th and East 17th avenues, which is slated for the building of a six-story, mixed-use development. Construction is set to start as early as this summer.
That development, by Edwards Communities, is part of the larger 15th and High development plan put forth by Campus Partners, Ohio State University’s nonprofit development arm. The plan calls for the redevelopment of much of High Street between East 14th and East 17th avenues.
