At the start of 2017, The Leader reported that Jimmy’s Ice House, a Heights institution for nearly seven decades, sold. Today, Swamplot is reporting that a new business name has been registered for the White Oak Drive ice house space.
“A new business name has just been registered for the White Oak Dr. address of Jimmie’s Place, which claims to have held the spot for some 75 years (though under the variant Jimmy’s for at least part of that),” Swamplot reports. “The actually-used-to-sell-ice ice house was sold early this year to serial redeveloper Braun Enterprises, with some sideline speculation that an up-to-code remodel of the 1940s space might prove prohibitively expensive. But city records show an electrical plan review process kicked off in March; the name Bobcat Teddy’s Ice House was registered for the spot early last week.”
