Downtown sports bar reopens after fire.
STATS, the sports bar from Legacy Restaurant Partners, plans to reopen for lunch and dinner tonight after a multi-month closure. STATS, located on Marietta Street near the Georgia Dome, suffered what was described by restaurant management as a "contained hood fire" on September 18th. The restaurant was to reopen a short time later, but has been closed since.
During the closure, the bar has likely lost thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in potential business. Among the events missed were six home Falcons games (seven away), the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, New Year's Eve and plenty of potential holiday parties and events.According to an email from LRP:
"There will be many exciting things happening this year for Stats so stay tuned for more updates and information."
Stats will surely need some "exciting things" to woo back customers who likely migrated to nearby Hudson Grille, which opened in early 2013, adjacent to Philips Arena.
