An O'Fallon resident is preparing to re-open his bar and grill in a new location in the city.
Playoffs Sports Bar and Grill was a restaurant and bar that featured karaoke, pool, dart leagues and live music at 40 Crossroads Plaza for 13 years until closing in July 2012.
Playoffs owner Mike Elmore has requested a conditional use permit (CUP) for a new location at 2299 O'Fallon Crossing. The new proposed location is at Highway K and N behind Walgreens, in the same plaza as Clarkson Eye Care and Madison's Cafe.
A public comment regarding the conditional use permit was held during the Thursday, Nov. 1 O'Fallon Planning and Zoning Commission meeting. No residents came forward to speak for or against the item.
"We're just going to set up a new location of the same bar and restaurant with a full service menu and alcohol," Elmore said at the meeting.
The commission approved a recommendation for the CUP to the O'Fallon City Council, which will vote on the item at a future meeting.
O'Fallon Patch will have more information about Playoff's Bar and Grill as soon as it becomes available.
