The original owner of the bar was the Songer family, and it was called Songer's Cafe.
John "Wip" Wiparina became co-owner of the bar in 2002, partnering with Jeff Massie, who has been an owner since 1988.
The original opened it in 1880 and continued being open through Prohibition," Wiparina said.
Wiparina said during Prohibition, the bar became a restaurant. Food was cooked in the kitchen where the dart boards now stand.
"The pool room that we have now was a dining area," Wiparina said.
"The original bar, the place where you actually sit at, is believed to be the oldest one in existence in Ohio, although we are not sure where it is today," Wiparina said.
The hand-carved bar is 24 feet long and 12 to 14 feet high.
"It was a Brunswick Monarch, which was the Cadillac of bars back then. It had three arches and featured three murals that were painted by a local artist," Wiparina said.
Wiparina said the three murals are safe at the home of a Bucyrus resident, but no one knows where the actual bar is.
