Berky’s Bar Will Soon Be a Sports Bar

Posted By on Fri, Jun 17, 2011 at 2:30 PM

Berky’s Bar at 5769 E. Speedway Blvd. will reopen next month as an upscale sports bar.

Richard McClelland, who bought the place after it closed abruptly a couple years back, says he’s completely renovated the interior and added 30 big-screen televisions, more than half of which are 3-D. He says patrons will be able to check out 3-D glasses from the bar.

The bar, which will be known as RJ’s Replays, will also serve food, although the menu has yet to be finalized. McClelland hopes to have the doors open in early July.

McClelland says he completely scrubbed the biker vibe from the building — no small feat considering the bar was a biker hangout for decades — and assured all the people in the neighborhood that the new bar would be something drastically different.

“I’m shooting for a more upscale crowd. I’m not shooting for dive bar,” said McClelland. “I guess you can say that I’m shooting for the trendy, yuppie crowd, if you want to call it that.”

The beer list is about 100 names long, with 30 craft beers on tap. There will be karaoke, live music and other entertainment as well.
