After 27 years, beloved Campustown bar KAM’s, 618 E. Daniel St., is being sold by former owner Eric Meyer.

According to a News-Gazette article, the new owner of the bar is planning on running KAM’s as normal and will reopen for the school year.

“I want to thank my great staff, our students, alumni and the great university community,” Meyer said in the article.

A sign that reads, “Meyer family thanks you. 27 years. Kamily Forever,” was posted outside the bar.

The details of the sale have not been disclosed at the time of publication.
