Memories of Evansville’s old Blue Bar will flow at a new Italian restaurant, Sauced, planned for opening in October on Parrett Street, near Downtown. Scott Schymik, Sauced’s owner, operator and head chef, recently purchased the old Blue Bar sign after stumbling on it at a local antique shop, he said. Seeing it nearly blew him away. Schymik plans to display the sign prominently.
“It will be visible on the Second Street side of the restaurant, at Parrett,” he said. The new restaurant will be open to the public, unlike Schymik’s other restaurant, Kirby’s Private Dining at 1119 Parrett St., which is open to private gatherings only. Sauced will be housed in a 70-seat dining room on the first floor of Kirby’s, where remodeling is under way. Besides the Blue Bar twist, Schymik expects his homemade spaghetti sauce will also be a hit. Largely made from a recipe handed down by his late mother, Mary Jo Schymik, Scott Schymik will add some of his embellishments. Schymik believes its length of time to make — 10 hours — helps make it delicious.
“We’ll be stirring, and stirring, and stirring,” he said. “There never is a perfect sauce, he said, but this sauce is close.” Schymik said he is working with three chefs in planning additional menu items. The restaurant will be open Tuesday through Saturday.
The Blue Bar basement nightclub, which was in the old Lincoln Hotel off Main and Fifth Streets, was a gathering place for area residents in the 1950s and 1960s. Saxophonist Boots Randolph was a regular performer there for four years before he hit the big time in Nashville, Tennessee, and was often accompanied by singer Vickie Bryant. Randolph performed at the Blue Bar when he wrote what became his signature song, Yakkity Sax. Local musicians, including Wayne “Bookie” Buchenberger and Albert C. “Doc” Stocker, also played there.
