I just got off the phone with Nick, owner of the High Five. He told me that he just signed the paperwork and has sold the bar. The new owners are three partners that include Skully (from Skullys) and Mike from Ravari Room. As far as Nick knows, it’s still going to be a rock and roll bar. I think the kitchen is going to reopen, too.
I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the club, having booked the place for a period of time. The venue is at a great location, so hopefully the new partners can turn it into something better than it already was.
