What Should Replace MYXX Once It Closes?
The Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas ordered MYXX to shut down by Oct. 1 at a hearing Sept. 12. What would you like to see in the Cedar Fairmount space?
Cleveland Heights Police, city officials and nearby businesses have reported problems there since at least June 17 when a fight broke out, a car struck an officer and 300 people spilled out into the Cedar Fairmount intersection after the establishment closed.
Read about past events leading up to the court's decision:
According to council documents, the business was recently sold by order of federal court from Cedar-Fairmount Realty, Ltd. to JDI Loans, LLC. Kim Lisboa, the former owner, was still operating the business.
Now the question is, what should replace MYXX?
Several readers have weighed in on what would work best in the 9,600-square-foot facility that used to be home to Jillian's:
I hope whatever happens next in that space brings back casual activities like pool and ping pong. I've been missing that since Jillian's left.
Here's to hoping that new owners have the sense to split Myxx into 2 or 3 separate places - a restaurant this big is a recipe for disaster unless they have the client base to host weddings or other well-organized events there. It's hard to go wrong with a cafe or smaller-size restaurant in CH these days. And locals would surely support the change.
That would be a good spot for a Best & Co. clothing store or a Ski Haus.
