Spaghetti Warehouse could be moving back to original Broad St. location in new proposal

The original Spaghetti Warehouse, located at 397 W. Broad St., first opened in 1978 in an old icehouse that was built in 1891. After a partial roof collapse in 2022, Spaghetti Warehouse closed, and in late fall of 2023, they relocated to Downtown at 150 S. High St.

But now, Spaghetti Warehouse could be moving right back to their original Broad St. location, said Skip Weiler, local developer and owner of The Robert Weiler Company. Just in a brand new building. And there are already new plans in the work for the Spaghetti Warehouse that just opened Downtown.

Weiler’s company, the Kelley family, and the owners of the Spaghetti Warehouse chain are working together with plans to raze the original warehouse and construct a mixed-use building there, complete with apartments, parking, shopping, and yes – even another Spaghetti Warehouse restaurant.

“We’re still in the planning stages right now,” Weiler explained. “But we’re very excited about it. Being between 2 railroad tracks and at a historic location, we’d continue that theme between the new development and the location.”


In the proposal plans submitted to the city, a 15-story building with 534 apartments, 577 parking spaces, and 15,120 square feet of commercial space for restaurants and shopping could be coming to this site.

“Franklinton is hot and hip and upcoming – Gravity is unbelievable, the Peninsula couldn’t be more beautiful – we’re excited to be part of Franklinton, too. Of course, we’re still getting requirements from the city to know exactly what we can fit at this location, how many apartments, how many restaurants, and how much retail space,” Weiler reminded us.

And now, to answer the burning question that many are probably wondering right now: what’s happening to the brand new Spaghetti Warehouse on S. High? Weiler said that the owners of Spaghetti Warehouse also own an upscale Italian chain, called Bistro 72, and they’re hoping to bring it here to Columbus at the 150 S. High St. location.

Spaghetti Warehouse did not respond to a request to comment.
