Info at Forage Modern Workshop
The Hi-Lo Diner has been open for one year, but its story is 60 years old. An original 1957 Fodero Diner, Hi-Lo’s shell was known as The Venus from 1958-2009. It was located on Route 8 between Hampton and Gibsonia, tiny bedroom communities just north of Pittsburgh. A diner collector moved it to Cleveland, Ohio where it sat until the owners of Forage Modern Workshop and Blue Door Pub purchased it in 2014 to replace a vacant Taco Bell and completely restored it to original glory. Hi-Lo Diner will host talks across the street at Forage Modern Workshop to give more insight to the restoration and history. You’re also welcome to use the restrooms at Forage Modern Workshop, water and coffee will be provided.
