Glass Wall Says Goodbye To The Heights

Likely due to the rapidly-changing restaurant scene in the Heights, long-standing eatery Glass Wall is saying goodbye.

The restaurant at 933 Studewood officially closed its doors as of yesterday, CultureMap reports. Glass Wall first opened in the Heights back in 2006, and grew into a popular neighborhood spot. Considering the onslaught of new eateries that have opened in the Heights in recent years, Glass Wall will revamp the restaurant to “better reflect contemporary dining trends.”

The closure of Glass Wall comes on the heels of news that its fellow long-standing restaurant Shade would also shutter for a similar revamp. According to owner Tim Jones, the menu at whatever Glass Wall will become will serve up some of its most popular plates, along with “healthier options designed to appeal to the next generation of diners.” That likely translates to new offerings that will look good on Instagram.

No opening timeline for Glass Wall’s successor has been announced just yet. Stay tuned for more details.
