MEDINA, Ohio – Sully’s Irish Pub will be closed for up to two weeks because of a burst pipe, owner John Sullivan said.
The restaurant, at 117 W. Liberty St., in Medina, closed at 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. Security tapes show the pipe burst soon after, at 12:10 a.m., he said.
Workers “tore up the floor taking the nails out now,” Sullivan said Friday. “The bar top has to be replaced and about a third of the ceiling.”
The accident happened when a coupling on a half-inch pipe broke, he said, right when temperatures had dropped below zero for the second night in a row.
Sullivan said he hopes repairs will be completed and everything works out with insurance to open by Medina’s Ice Festival Weekend, Feb 15-18.
The restaurant marks its 11th anniversary this April.
No other businesses were affected.
Sully’s is keeping its Facebook page updated with progress on the repairs.
