It is with sincere regret that we inform you that Play Arcade + Kitchen will be permanently closing its doors, effective March 1, 2020. Our last day of business operation will be February 29.
Our historic building, built-in 1948, has begun to show serious and sudden signs of its age. Critical repair issues have surfaced that have caused us to review our ability to provide a quality environment and a venue commitment to our future private events. After much consideration about how to best address this situation, it is apparent, and to our dismay, that our only option is to close our doors.
Once again, our lack of anticipation of the severity of these repairs has placed us in an unfortunate position to make a decision that ensures enough advance notice as possible for relocation/rescheduling your event.
Thank you for supporting PLAY during our 5 wonderful years in business.
We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.
It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.
A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.
