It is with mixed emotions that we announce to you the closing of The Blue. We have devoted a decade of our lives to this wild adventure, and with much deliberation, we are ready to welcome our next chapter... a chapter filled with new business ventures, grandchildren, traveling, and relaxation.

We are forever grateful to each and every one of you. We’ve worked hard to put The Blue on the map, and couldn’t have done it without loyal customers at our side. In 2008 we set out to fill a void. We wanted to provide our community with a place to connect... feel proud to bring their guests... try something new... appreciate talented artists... and take a load off. We were pioneers, the first to do what we did. We consider it a victory, and are proud and humbled to have been a part of it.

It has been quite a ride, and we will always look back on it with fondness. For the friendships, the experiences, and the laughter. We now hope to see someone new transform this great space into their dream.

Our last day of the restaurant will be May 25th, 2017, while continuing with our catering business. We would like you all to join us throughout May to say farewell, eat some awesome food, and enjoy the music we are booking as our way of thanking you for your faithful patronage over the past decade. After all, parties are what we do best!

If you are interested in hall rental or catering information, or someone you know has a dream of their own for this space, please contact us at 419-445-2022 or
