Goody Boy closes doors after over 75 years in Short North
Goody Boy Supper Club, a '50s-themed diner, has closed its doors after over 75 years in business, at 1144 N. High St. in the Short North.
The concept was owned by One Hospitality, which also owns Short North Pint House, Standard Hall and Forno.
TJ Valentino, director of marketing for One Hospitality, confirmed the closure in an email but did not give additional details about the reason for the closure. He said news of what's next for the location is forthcoming.
"We are exploring ideas for a new, fresh concept to keep the Short North neighborhood special," he said.
Initially called Michael's Goody Boy Drive-In, the diner was launched in 1947 and named after its original owner, Michael Pappas. The diner changed hands several times before being sold to One Hospitality, formerly Corso Ventures, which closed the diner in 2019 to refresh the interior and exterior.
