Artist/writer Ryan Molenkamp has the scoop:

Artist, Curator, Arbitrary Grant-Awarder, Art Bar creator and all-around great guy Greg Lundgren (The Hideout, Vital 5 Productions, Lundgren Monuments, PDL, etc) Greg Lundgren has done this city another great service - he's reopening Vito's - with his business partner Jeff Scott! Read his letter to the First-Hill Neighborhood Association here. Greg told me they are planning on an August reopening and in his letter he said they have "purchased a beautiful grand piano for live performance...[we will] offer quality food, service and entertainment, and reach out to three generations of Seattlittes that hold fond memories there.

Hurrah.
