Venue notes: Marco Polo, Columbus OH

Defunct music club. Was located just off the OSU campus. Jay Brown recalls in 2003: "It closed [around 1985] then re-opened as a laundro-bar; you could do your laundry and get lit at the same time, but no more live music. If my memory is correct, it was one of the first in the country. About a year ago, the former venue as well as about five blocks surrounding it (the entire bar district for the Ohio State University), were razed for an urban renewal type project. Of course after tearing everything down, Columbus and OSU are arguing over who will pay for the yuppie 'improvements.'"
