Spaghetti Warehouse in Ybor is auctioning everything that's left after its closure

TAMPA — The Spaghetti Warehouse saga appears to finally be at an end.

After announcing in March that it would close, the restaurant managers reversed its decision and said it would stay open while it searched for a new home in the suburbs. It shut down just six months later, on Oct. 2 without a new location and is currently auctioning off the restaurant's contents.

Included in the auction is the life-sized sculpture of an angel dressed as a knight standing on a dragon, an antique advertisement for laxatives, a traffic light and about 50 stained glass chandeliers. The auction is being held online, on and ends at 7 p.m. Tuesday

Spaghetti Warehouse was located at 1911 13th St. in Ybor City and had been open since 1991 in a former cigar factory building. The restaurant's parent company is BLD Brands, which has said it would consider opening another location in the region but with a fresh image and new menu.
