Cohn Restaurant Group's OB Warehouse To Shutter This February | Breakfast Republic & Coin Haus Locations Rumored To Move Into Prime Ocean Beach Building

January 18, 2017

The Cohn Restaurant Group's OB Warehouse in Ocean Beach, which opened in August 2014, will close after close of business on February 14. The Cohn's will renovate its prime building and use the first floor to house a second incarnation of the company's Coin Haus Beer & Games concept with the second floor going to Johan Engman for another Breakfast Republic outpost, launched in collaboration with the Cohn Group.

Upon closing the doors to OB Warehouse this Valentine's Day, the building will soon after receive a redesign by longtime Cohn Restaurant Group designer Philippe Beltran (100 Wines, Indigo Grill, BO-beau) who will transform the first floor to become Coin Haus - an adult arcade bar that centers around self-serve beer and video games, which currently has its original location in La Mesa. Although the La Mesa Coin Haus location only serves pretzels, the OB outpost will have a menu of pizzas and salads. Rumor has it that David Cohn delivered the news in-person to the OB Warehouse staff and that many employees will be moved to one of the company's other nearly-twenty San Diego restaurants.

The prime second story space at 4839 Newport Avenue is will become the 5th branch of Rise & Shine Restaurant Group's Breakfast Republic restaurant, which first opened in North Park in June 2015 and quickly grew to locations in Liberty Station & Encinitas, with eateries in Carmel Valley and the East Village currently in development. Breakfast Republic owner Johan Engman is teaming up with the Cohn Group for a modified version of the concept, set to open as early as this April.

We reached out to Rise & Shine's public relations for comment but were told that details were not finalized and would not be released until next week.
