Iconic restaurant near Ohio State closing after nearly 80 years 

One of the state’s most well-known hangouts announced it is closing its doors permanently. 

The Blue Danube Restaurant, a tavern opened 78 years ago at 2439 N. High St. near Ohio State University, announced on Facebook that its last day in business will be Father’s Day, June 17.

The establishment, known as the Dube, posted the following on Facebook on Monday: 

“There is no easy way to break the news, but the time has come. After 78 years of service, the Blue Danube will be closing its doors. The official last day of operation is set to be June 17th. Those of us that work there would like to thank everyone for allowing us to provide such a comfortable meeting space for so many. We've loved being a part of your lives from the everyday mundane to the most life changing of moments. Thank you for coming to us with your engagements, your celebrations, your goodbyes, your need for safety, or even just to hang with people and decompress. The Dube family will be hanging in there until the end, and will be welcoming back some familiar faces to work some rockstar shifts in order to ensure everyone has time to say their goodbyes. Please feel free to share your thoughts and memories with us. We would love to hear them! Join us in celebrating The Dube and all of the shenanigans it's been a part of.”

According to a Columbus Dispatch report, the bar’s landlord plans a major renovation of the building that it occupies. 

“Essentially, (Danube owner) Bob (Swaim) told us he is done, the ’Dube is closing, and that’s the end,” assistant general manager Lindsey Heyob told that newspaper.>> Meadowlark owner’s new sandwich shop plans off the table — for now

It is the latest locally-owned establishment to surrender as developers polish the commercial area near Ohio State’s campus and attract national chains with deeper pockets, the Dispatch reports.

“Right now they are offering their delicious coffee, some drinks, some baked goods, some juices,” he said. “They are going to add to the menu. There are going to be boxed lunches available.  It will be a couple of weeks before their hours expand.”

Duritsch said the restaurant is also exploring the idea of a delivery service that would allow patrons to use an app to order food and/or pick up food from delivery spots designated within the library. 

Table 33 may also offer catering down the road.
