Rack 'Em! opening next week in Riverdale

Posted By on Wed, Jun 27, 2012 at 3:50 PM


We don't know if it's the soon-to-open Walmart Neighborhood Market that's given the Riverdale area a growth spurt, but whatever it is, we'll take it.

A new sports bar/billiard parlor called Rack Em! is scheduled to open next Monday. Situated in the building that once housed the departed (and unmourned, as far as we know) Hunan Balcony restaurant across from Office Depot, Rack Em! will feature a full bar including beer on tap, as well as pool tables, darts, bar food and Southern-style plate lunches soon. It's a 21 and up club, so you can smoke.

General Manager Tamara Hall said the bar will be open 10 a.m. to midnight 7 days a week, with happy hour from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. Mon.-Fri. ($10 beer buckets and $2.75 domestic drafts). Hall said that in the short term, the menu will consist of "basic bar fare" including sandwiches, salads, and wings, but the building has a full kitchen and will be serving a full menu soon. Hall said the bar will feature 8 newly re-felted pool tables, with league play and billiard tournaments every Sunday night. They'll also have five competition dart boards, with league play every Thursday night.
