As the days race by in CD1025’s 60-day million dollar crowdfunding effort, the radio station has plenty of reasons to celebrate….especially this week. Today, the radio station marks its 25th birthday. (Happy Birthday, CD1025!) It also marks the grand opening of the Big Room Bar.
The Big Room Bar (1036 South Front Street in the Brewery District) is owned by station boss Randy Malloy and occupies the top floor of WWCD’s building…just one flight and a few steps away from the actual broadcast studio. The bar will be open every day and feature LIVE music four nights a week. Plus LIVE band karaoke on Tuesdays.
LIVE music is no stranger to the space as CD1025 artists regularly play in the Big Room as they pass through town. Mumford and Sons, Alt-J, Walk the Moon and other big names have played at the radio station in recent years.
Customers will also find a kitchen at Big Room Bar with a menu made up of contemporary bar fare and an all-day brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. The bar will feature ten Ohio craft beers, specialty cocktails and a weekday happy hour.
Grand opening of the Big Room Bar is set for 11am today. LIVE music will begin at 4:30pm with performances by Brave Weather, Jared Mahone, The Cordial Sins, Playing To Vapors, and The Wet Darlings. The LIVE performances continue through the weekend with Bicentennial Bear, Yellow Paper Planes and R Ring on Saturday. And the Big Room Bar will feature Jordan Kirk and Friends on Sunday at 11:30am to kick off their Big Broom Brunch series.
Big Room Bar hours:
Monday – Saturday: 11am to 1am (with brunch menu on Saturdays 11am to 7pm)
Sunday: 11am to 4pm with brunch menu and LIVE Big Room performances
