They’ve been closed over a year, but on Friday, Aug. 13, The Spacebar will once again host shows and serve up drinks.

Owner Ben DeRolph said the 2590 N. High St. bar has been closed since March 18, 2020, when quarantine officially began.


“We decided it was finally time to reopen because vaccination numbers had risen enough that we could take on checking people upon entry,” DeRolph said. “It’s still ridiculous how many have not been, but far enough that we’re confident taking that on.”

DeRolph said Spacebar will require proof of vaccination for guests upon entry.

Spacebar will celebrate its reopening night with a show featuring d.o.t.s. formerly Sega Genocide), Matter of Planets, and Suffering Praying Hands. The show will kick off at 8 p.m. Tickets are available here.
