"It's been a great 16 years, but it's now time we say goodbye....and hello! :)
Back in 2005 when we threw a festive grand-opening party for Bier Markt, the Ohio City neighborhood was nothing like it is today. It was a neighborhood in need of improvement, but we love this Fair City and see so much potential at every turn. And so in the 16 years that followed, we've enjoyed every magic moment with our families, friends, colleagues, and neighbors. Now it's time we wish you all a fond farewell.
Early in the new year we will be permanently closing Bier Markt and Bar Cento.
The good news is we will be reopening after a few months of construction with whole new, fresh, and exciting concept.
We'll keep Speakeasy open the entire time. And every single one of our wonderful team members will remain employed throughout and will be ready to rock out a huge Grand Opening Week of celebrations.
So right up to the moment we close our doors for final time, we'll be celebrating all the fun and festive times we've all enjoyed over these past 16 years.
Cheers & much love to you all!
Sam McNulty, Mark Priemer, & Team"
