Defunct Establishments

Gone but not forgotten! Merchandise under our defunct umbrella celebrates the local Ohio State University/University District establishments of the past.

If there is a bar, restaurant, or shop you'd like to see added, send us an email to info@highstreettees.com.
We are always adding to our defunct collection and welcome your input!

We strive to find the owners of past bars and local defunct establishments to make partnership arrangements. However, tracking down old owners is sometimes difficult. Please contact us if you are a past bar owner or know how we can get in touch.

All defunct bar artwork featured on our merchandise is owned by Shop Local OSU. Unauthorized use of artwork is prohibited.
