Over the 9 ends of the catering service to become an event space

A restaurant located just after Louisville’s Ninth Street division closed to become an event space.

Over the 9, located at 120 S. 10th St., announced its closure on Facebook Tuesday – just two days after Finn’s Southern Kitchen finished its last service at Schnitzelburg.

The two restaurants were the first victims of 2018. The previous year, at least 47 restaurants closed in the metropolitan area.

“Thank you to all of the customers we’ve served over the years here at Over the 9,” the company’s Facebook post read. “Unfortunately, we will be closing our doors for 2018 as a full service restaurant / bar and will create space for exclusive parties and events.”

No reason was given for the sudden change, although restaurants often announce their closings during the winter months when business is down.

On the 9, owned by Neace Ventures, opened in 2015 as a partner business of Falls City Brewing and Old 502 Winery, which were located in the same building on 10th Street.

Chef Griffin Paulin led the opening of Over the 9 before leaving the restaurant to launch his own, Mirin, in early 2017.

In June of last year, Falls City Brewing announced plans to build a new head office in NuLu, while Old 502 Winery would remain on 10th Street.

No new update on this project has been made since.
