Ugly Tuna will be back before we know it!
The bar will reopen at 195 Chittenden Ave. as Ugly Tuna 2. Renovations have already started on the new space and although a specific opening date hasn’t been set, they hope to be open in time for the OSU Senior Crawl on April 30.
The original Ugly Tuna closed last spring after 15 years, after failing to reach an agreement with their landlord at their Gateway location.
“I want to take the time to thank all of you who have visited and who have made great memories and friendships at Ugly Tuna for the past 14 years,” wrote owner John Votino last year on Facebook. “The bottom line is that time changes everything and the Campus Partners group did not want to renew our lease and as much as we tried – at the end of the day we have to close tomorrow night after our 14th senior crawl.”
But have no worries, class of 2019. Ugly Tuna 2 may be in a new location, but they’ll be back in time for your senior crawl! And a lot of things will stay the same, like the fishbowl drinks and the beachy decor.
