OKLAHOMA CITY - The Spaghetti Warehouse opened its doors in 1989, but recently closed them earlier this month.

Now, everything inside the restaurant is for sale through an internet auction.

Through 7 p.m. Sunday, you can bid on unique décor, a piece of furniture or even a big fryer - a chance to savor a piece of Oklahoma history.

Oklahomans like John Weis are surprised to hear The Spaghetti Warehouse is closed for business, reminiscing about the glory days of the restaurant.

"I imagine people have memories tied to it," Weis said. "Actually, I think I went to dinner there for senior prom."

Business representatives from Spaghetti Warehouse released the following statement:

"After more than 30 years in the community, we have made the difficult business decision to suspend operations and announce the closure of the Spaghetti Warehouse Restaurant in Oklahoma City.

The closure is effective on Tuesday, Feb. 2. We are working closely with everyone on our staff, whose hard work and dedication is appreciated and we thank them for their many contributions.

To our many guests, we say thank you. We enjoyed serving you, your family and friends. And, it was our pleasure to share in the celebrations that took place over countless lunches and dinners, not to mention birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions.

Spaghetti Warehouse was one of the first businesses involved in the Bricktown revitalization and we thank everyone in the Oklahoma City community who we’ve served and who supported us. For anyone who has a question about our restaurant in Oklahoma City, we invite you to send us an email at: info@meatballs.com.

As we continue to work on a new look for our brand, we are hopeful that shortly we can reopen Spaghetti Warehouse within the Oklahoma City market."

Mallory O'Neill, Bricktown District Manager, feels sad about the restaurants closing.

"This restaurant means so much to so many people," O'Neill said. "It's where you had your dinner before prom, or it's where you had your first date with your husband."

As for the Spaghetti Warehouse itself, the landlords are based out of New York, so only time will tell who or what will call this building home.

"The potential for this building is really high so, as sad as we are to see Spaghetti Warehouse close its doors, we know the opportunity is there for some really great things for Bricktown," O'Neill said.
