Openings and Closings

Pre-Game Sports Bar loses the bar game

Pre-Game Sports Bar has called it quits. The joint closed on October 1, just three months after it opened in the former home of SportsBook, which lasted only six months in that spot.

The Victorian storefront, once the home of City Spirit, is now listed with Sanborn and Company.

The space upstairs was slated to become Boudoir 1434 this summer -- but that project, too, appears to be stalled. Too bad: We were looking forward to seeing how the club handled the "gaggle" of club-goers it envisioned lining up in the alley for admission.
