While the lauded cocktail hub Light of the Seven Matchsticks is closing its doors at Natalie’s Coal Fired Pizza & Live Music in Worthington, Natalie’s sister location in Grandview is planning to make up for its loss.

According to Natalie’s owner Charlie Jackson, the popular pizzeria and music venue is rolling out more entertainment options, in addition to a brand-new concept.

Jackson said Natalie’s is creating a new concept within Natalie’s Grandview. It will be located across three connected rooms the eatery has owned but doesn’t regularly utilize. It will seat 60-70 guests.


While Jackson said Natalie’s isn’t currently disclosing additional information about the new concept, he did say more details are coming soon.

In a statement announcing the closure of Light of the Seven Matchsticks last week, the bar hinted that it would continue in some form at Natalie’s Grandview location. It’s currently unclear if the new concept will operate as Light of the Seven Matchsticks or under a different name.

Additionally, Natalie’s in Grandview is expanding its slate of live entertainment. It will be offering ticketed shows for live music on its main stage, in addition to free happy hour shows at Charlie’s Stage, a smaller space on the kitchen side of Natalie’s that formerly provided mostly background music, Jackson said. New lights and sound equipment are being installed at Charlie’s Stage as well.
