MOUNT VERNON — Pirates’ Cove is setting sail for new horizons.
Owner Tom Corrigan told the News that Pirates’ Cove will close at the end of April and will reopen as quickly as possible at its new location at 108 Mount Vernon Ave. beside Colonial City Lanes in the current location of Parkside Restaurant & Tavern.
Parkside announced through Facebook on Thursday that their final day of operation will be April 28.
According to owner Tom Corrigan, the Cove has been “feeling the pressure of growth” the past year and a half. Pirates’ Cove first opened by Corrigan’s family in Gambier 40 years ago where they stayed until, after a brief hiatus, they moved to the Coshocton Avenue location. When the Mount Vernon Avenue location became available in 2016 and current owners Arya and Kate Aryanata took over, Corrigan said he felt he had missed an opportunity and so after a year and a half of thinking about the need to find a new location Corrigan “put out feelers” with the building’s owner and said if the Parkside space ever became available that he would be interested in moving. It was “kismet” Corrigan said that the space opened up so quickly after he reached out.
