After being vacant for almost 2 years, the space 495 N. Main St. in Springboro will soon become the home of Mr. Boro’s Tavern! The space has quite a history, having originally been opened as Mulligan’s Wine & Stuff in 1998, then an ownership change and it was renamed Grapes of Ruth and run by Ruth Hagedorn, and then in November of 2007 it morphed into Bella Vino with another ownership change. Serveral managment changes later it shut down in late spring of 2015.
Current Owners Rick Baarlaer and Marci Johannes have spent months redesigning the space, moving the bar to be the centerpiece of the building and turning it into a neighborhood sports tavern with a farmhouse rustic look that serves tavern style food…everything baked …nothing fried. Pizza’s, gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, daily lunch specials and more. According to their facebook page they’ll be specializing in craft beers, bourbon, specialty drinks, and wine and will be open daily from 2:00 pm – 2:30 am.
They’ve set their grand opening for Tuesday March 14th and will party all through the St. Patrick’s day, even opening at 9am on Friday for their first ever St. Patrick’s Day bash.
We’re looking forward to checking out Mr. Boro’s and toasting to their success!
