Former Ballot Box Bar in Worcester’s Canal District for Lease

Former Ballot Box Bar in Worcester’s Canal District for Lease

WORCESTER – Nearly a month since the Kelley Square property was purchased from former Sheriff Guy Glodis, the former space that held Glodis’ Ballot Box bar is now for lease.

The property — located at 9-17 Kelley Sq. — was sold for $650,000 to Luke DeWolfe, Jarad DeWolfe and Anthony Evangelista. Luke DeWolfe is the owner of Valentino’s bar on Shrewsbury St.

At the time the purchase was reported, Glodis told the Worcester Business Journal [WBJ] that the new owners would open a restaurant and bar in the former Ballot Box space.

However, on Wednesday, Sept. 11, Daniel DiRoberto of The DiRoberto Realty Team — the group managing the property — posted on Facebook that the space is available:

A representative of The DiRoberto Team told [TWIW] that the lease is available for $3,000 per month. 

According to the WBJ, Glodis purchased the building in 2010 for $340,000. He opened the Ballot Box in early 2017.

TWIW will update this story when more information becomes available.
