STAMFORD, Conn. — After 37 years, Bobby V's Restaurant & Sports Bar closed up its original location in downtown Stamford on Monday night after the NCAA championship basketball game.
But don't despair: Bobby V's is moving to a new location just around the corner on Atlantic Street this summer, according to a post on the bar's Facebook page.
"It’s the Last Final Game!," Valentine said in a Facebook post. "After 13,650 days, the house that Joe Romano inspired and Joe Valentine built is making its last pitch. After our amazing staff of hundreds has served more than 600,000 burgers, 7,000,000 long necks, 3,000,000 drafts, 350,000 plates of nachos, 250,000 wraps, 2,500,000 wings and thousands of good times, we are leaving our old home and transitioning to our new one."
After closing the 225 Main St. spot, Bobby V's will be moving to a new home now under construction at 268 Atlantic St., Valentine said. The new place is slated to open in early June.
Bobby V's went out with a bang with Monday's night's game as Gonzaga University takes on the University of North Carolina for the NCAA championship.
"I’d like to buy you one and smile together one last time," Valentine said on Facebook.
"There are too many memories for me to recall, but I am sure if the new place is anything close to this old place, I will die a happy man," he said.
