Herschel to open real sports bar in Downtown Athens

(Image: ABH)
For some reason, no real sports bar has been able to flourish in downtown Athens. Broad Street Bar and Grill was the closest for a number of years, but now that spot is a French restaurant. It was bad enough when Stricklands moved.  The Capitol Room does ok, but it is more a bar with TVs than a sports bar.  Now, number 34 is stepping into the breach.

Walker's Famous 34 Pub and Grill will open at 320 E. Clayton, which is the building that has Mellow Mushroom. They will feature Doritos crusted chicken wings. Giggity.

They hope to open in mid-January.

It's in a good spot (where old Doc Chey's used to be). As long as it has decent food and a good vibe, it should be alright...
