ANDERSON — For more than 15 years, Terry Thurmon has been serving cold drinks and hot food to area residents at his bar, 59th Street Pub & Eatery on Scatterfield Road.
But when an opportunity presented itself to relocate the bar, Thurmon not only decided to relocate his business, he changed the name to reflect its new beginnings.
"We've moved to a new and better location to provide a better atmosphere and customer service," Thurmon said.
Bourbon Street Sports Bar & Grill, 845 E. 53rd St., still offers its well-known chicken wings, but the roomy new facility offers a special dance floor and other amenities.
"We offer a lot for customers to do," Thurmon said. "We attempt to cater to everyone's needs. And it is a smoking facility."
The full-service bar and offers big screen viewing of sports, neon lighting, colorful bar seating and a full menu.
Located in the southwest portion of the Southdale shopping plaza, the bar has corn hole, beer pong, pool, darts, NFL Sunday Ticket and UFC fights, he said.
Building signs for the new bar are on order and should be in place by the end of the month, Thurmon said.
"We want to provide the same great experience we've done for the past 15 years and to only make it better," he said.
Other additions Thurmon has for the new location include future plans for a patio and a basketball court for his customers. He said the main goal is to make sure everyone has a good time and a place where they can hang out with good people.
While the name and location of the bar may have changed, Thurmon said there are still two things about his bar that will never change.
"We have great employees with a great atmosphere," he said.
