Angry Surprised NO one mentioned Metro Sports Bar-PHX - 08-16-2008, 07:20 AM

Surprised NO one mention Metro Sports Bar-PHX as I was there yesterday at 10:00 a.m. there is a Sign on the Front Door say their license to sell ALCOHOL has been REVOKED since 8/8/2008, and the place was not the normal busy Friday morning. All they has was a few customers drinking Soft Drinks, Coffee, etc. The normal Off Track Betters were not there. They ARE STILL OPEN, and serving some food on the menu. FYI

Spoke with someone last eve about their Pool Tournament Scheduled for Friday night, and was told apparently no more Pool Tournament until they are able to sell Alcohol again.

So if you are going down for one of the nightly Pool Tournaments it might be a good idea to call ahead to see if it is going to happen.

This is not a good NEWS as Metro Sports Bar had Tournament 7 nights per week, great food, and a lot of employees now who are not work.

FYI.

There were (3) Six Shooters in the Valley in my memory is correct, one in Tempe, became Scoreboards, and closed from a SINK HOLE in the Floor. The One in the West Valley that is closed. Last the one at 35th. Avenue, and Peoria in PHX that closed, and is reopened as BullShooters.

So no Alexanders or Metros so what's left over in the West Valley?,I know Bullshooters is a nice room but we will see if it draws in all the wanderers who have no place to go now,I am sure Bullshooters will take them all in and hopefully set up tourneys that Metro used to have and give Jazz a place there.

Lenny,

As far as active, player friendly rooms, not much. Two bars are still very action and league oriented. The Northern is one, (5-7 footers) and Jimbo's
at 51 ave and Cactus is adding 6 more tables to a new expanded area.
Bull was supposed to talk to the owner re; tournaments etc. It's a great sports bar and he promotes his leagues well.
Lets hope Bullshooter's will take up some of the slack. In the past they have not been very player friendly (equipment or otherwise). They have a good chance to improve on that, if they care to.

Dick

Well Metro is not closed it just can not serve liquor. I hope they get their operation back to normal soon, as Metro is the one place I know of West of Central Avenue, and North of Glendale Avenue with tournaments on Brunswick 4.5 x 9.0's

It's still up in the air as to whether Metro will remain open. Right now their liquor license is suspended, pending litigation. If it is permanently revoked,
he will almost certainly shut it down. OTB and pool will not support the hefty rent on that place. JMO, hope I'm wrong.

Im not sure to be honest,I think they will flip for who picks the first game and the loser of that game gets choice of the next game.I would think it will be straights or one hole.

Yeah, I was shooting at Metro about two nights a week until last week. The rumor is that the city is busting them for something that happened last year. The rumor also is that the reason the city is pursuing this has to do with the smoking thing earlier this year. I haven't heard whether or not their license is in appeal, but knowing the owner that's probably what he's doing.

Now I'm going to the Northern Lounge as they have tourneys about 5 nights a week.

I spoke with Jazz about the whole incident. It doesn't have anything to do with the smoking ban. Some kid about 6-8 months ago got killed on his motorcycle after being in Metro. That is why they lost there liquor license for now. They are going through all the avenues to try and get it back. Let's all hope things work out for the best.

Scoreboards, formally Six Shooters in Tempe, folded because the owner was a moron and hid money from his wife and others. He also stiffed all the employees and leagues from there dues. The building was ceased by the owners.

Bullshooters is pretty nice, and has all the potential to be as good as Kolby's. They have tons of tables and more and more good players are hanging around. Tournaments haven't come into the picture too much yet though. The Desert Classic Tour is there this coming weekend and people will get to see how much better it is compared to the old Six Shooters.
