The Republic House Closes; Seeks New Location

The Republic House, at 12333 West Ave., has closed its doors, but plans to re-open at a new location, according to general manager Alan Johnson.

“Some of our music is still going to handled at the Quarry Cantina,” Johnson said. The cantina is at 7310 Jones Maltsberger.  The SA Blue Cats are scheduled to appear there Saturday.

Johnson cited some issues with landlords as contributing to the closure of the West Avenue location. “When we find another location, we’ll have the music and be serving our food again,” Johnson said.

Daily Dish: Republic House Dishes Up the Blues

The Republic House has opened at 12333 West Ave.

Owner Millie Van Steenburg sees the place as a “downscale version of House of Blues crossed with MTV Unplugged.” Singer-songwriters are featured on the weekends now, and plans are afoot to expand the live music to more nights a week.

The menu features a host of seafood dishes, Kobe beef hamburgers, gumbo, and fried oyster po’boys in addition to some items you might not find elsewhere, including quail’s eggs and a New York strip prepared Pittsburgh style in that it is peppered and smoked.

The restaurant also offers you a chance to juice up your electric car outside. It’s just one of a number of environmentally conscious choices the restaurant is making. Others include converting its fry oil into biodiesel, which is used to fuel the catering truck, Van Steenburg says.

The Republic House is open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday-Saturday. It currently has a wine/beer license. When it receives its full liquor license, the hours on the weekends will increase to 2 a.m.

For more information, call (210) 349-2600.
