SPRINGFIELD, Mo.–While one door closes another opens.
Cartoons Oyster Bar and Grill may have shut down but in its place is something new.
The ribbon cutting for Krave Seafood and Oyster bar took place Thursday.
New owners, Teresa Chism and Mark Schwein bought Cartoons back in November.
After multiple renovations, they have reopened with an updated flair.
Krave will host a “xtreme party lounge” with themed parties and will offer more seafood options in their restaurant.
Both owners used to frequent cartoons and their inspiration for the venue stems from their passion for music.
“We spent a lot of time in here, separately, the time Gary Summers had it for 30 years, spent a lot of time in here, said Schwein. “We own another bar in town called Friends Karaoke Pub. Live music is the heart of both of us and that’s why we both got involved.”
The owners say Krave is welcome to all ages and will be open from lunch to late nights.
