“It’s been a lot of work to get to this point,” Mark Jeffers, the tavern’s co-owner, said in a statement. “This place began with our non-profit arts group throwing some shows in an abandoned building. It was a hobby that has grown into something so much more. This next phase, as a fully licensed business, will allow us to do more of the events we love without all the constraints of temporary liquor licensing and insurance hassles. The vibe won’t change. There will just be more of it.”

Yellow Cab recently made several improvements, including a new bar, sinks and coolers, and full men’s and women’s restrooms.

The licenses allow the venue to provide “sale of intoxicating liquor on Sunday between the hours 10:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. and midnight” and  have “spirituous liquor for on premises consumption only, beer, wine and mixed beverages for on premises, or off premises in original sealed containers, until 2:30 a.m., according to the Ohio Department of Commerce’s website.

The Dayton Circus began hosting events at “The Old Yellow Cab Building” six years ago. 

Tons of  concerts, art shows, poetry slams, food truck rallies, artisan markets and more events have been held there since.
