Another Place Sandwich Shop (119 South 7th Street), a family-owned downtown institution for 50 years, announced at Facebook that it will be closing at the end of February.

It is with the biggest and heaviest of hearts that we announce the closing of Another Place Sandwich Shop at the end of this month. For 50 long years, this business was a project lovingly cared for by many family members and friends. It was a meeting place for people of all ages and backgrounds, a performance space for local musicians, actors, comedians, and artists. Over the decades, Louisvillians have made so many memories here — from watching major news events happen on the old TVs to getting married. Ultimately, it was always a great place to eat a sandwich. Although it’s sad to lose a local historic business, we can let it go knowing that it was full of love, laughter, and the best ingredients that Kentucky has to offer. The shop could have never made it this far without the dedication of the Goodwin family and the support of the community — so we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. Please come down and grab your last sandwich while supplies last. If there’s one thing that we can all agree on, it’s this: There’s no place like Another Place, since 1971.

Our own Ron Mikulak took a peek at Another Place Sandwich Shop in 2017, and Lindsey McClave’s 2019 review at The Courier Journal was laudatory.
