LIMA — The Ohio Theatre Lima announced the soft opening of the Stage Door Canteen & Cabaret. This exciting new “Big City Style” venue is a piano bar and performance space that will offer handcrafted cocktails and international “Bar Foods” alongside nightly piano players and a singing staff (and sometimes singing audience members!)
Hours of operation during the soft opening are Thursday through Saturday evenings from 5:00 PM – close. Presently, the Stage Door is only offering light snacks with their full menu starting in a few weeks when their new 700 square foot commercial kitchen is complete. They are currently offering their already famous “Best Movie Popcorn in Lima” free of charge from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM nightly.
Starting Thursday, September 22nd, The Stage Door and the resident theatre company “The Avante Garage!” will be hosting weekly open mic nights on Thursdays from 8:00 p.m. – 10 p.m. Singers, poets, magicians, drag artists, rappers, comics, storytellers and more are invited to sign up for a 5 – 10 minute time slot.
