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.

The Kings Inn is now completely gutted. You can see right through it. All of the exterior windows have been removed, leaving only support columns and the ceiling and floors. This leaves a clean slate for a variety of architectural styles.

I am hearing through the grapevine 'luxury apartments' with floor-to-ceiling glass, stained concrete floors, etc. That's just a rumor though.
