Chocolate Bar is Out, The Stick is In

by Mike Van Houten / Oct 26, 2015

So the Chocolate Bar downtown is closed. Sad face. No more chocotinis.

But never fear, chocolate covered-yummies will soon be replaced by enthusiastic sports fans, as Reno is getting it's first non-smoking non-gaming, sports lounge known as The Stick. Steve Towell and Kevin Johnson (owner of the Chocolate Bar) are launching the concept.Being the first of it's kind, The Stick will be a premier sports themed restaurant and a perfect place for friends, family, and business patrons to meet for lunch, dinner, happy hour, game day, late night and community gatherings.

Stay tuned for more info, as I will be getting a tour soon! They hope to open in December/January.

    hi Mike, Do you know whats going on inside at the old Steamboat/ Longs Drug location on Sierra St. ?? Of course the Drugstore never actually opened.

    Interesting place, but why would they choose the same name as the Carter development just 4 blocks away? Are they trying to piggyback on somebody else's idea?
