I jacked this photo from new Tree Bar owner Ryan Haye’s Friendster page … or was it MySpace? Hmmm. As we reported a few weeks ago, the infamous tree that gave the former Andyman’s Treehouse it’s name has been removed. Seeing The Tree Bar without the tree is sort of like seeing Kiss without their makeup for the first time – a bit shocking, but we’ll all get used to it.
Work continues on The Tree Bar to get it ready for the sneak preview opening on Dec. 23 with performances by The Kyle Sowashes, SPD GVNR, Low Men, Ghost Shirt and Two Cow Garage.
As reported previously, the beloved Columbus venue with a tree growing through the roof is gone. RIP Andyman’s Treehouse and The Treehouse. But Ghost Shirt bassist Ryan Haye is giving the space a fresh start with a new but familiar name – The Tree Bar.
Things of note:
- The tree is gone (but not forgotten). The stump will have a plaque dedicated to Andyman.
- Draft beer!
- New bar top, new carpet, new paint, etc.
- Lots of familiar faces are returning: Joe Peppercorn (& his open mic), Quinn Fallon behind the bar, Kyle Sowash booking the bands, etc.
It all kicks off on Dec. 23 with sets from The Kyle Sowashes, SPD GVNR, Low Men, Ghost Shirt and Two Cow Garage. The doors at 887 Chambers Rd. open at 8pm, music at 9. Full story and details coming in Thursday’s Other Paper. EDIT: Here’s the link to the story.
