Legacy Bar & Grille (Game Time Sports Grill) Has Closed - Bar Rescue Update

Legacy Bar & Grill in Arlington, Tennessee which appeared on season 6 of Bar Rescue has closed.  The bar closed for good in late 2020/early 2021 and put the blame on the pandemic and health department restrictions.

On December 28, 2020, the bar posted on Facebook,
 "Dear friends and family,
As you may or may not know, The Legacy Bar & Grill got into a little bit of trouble a couple of weeks ago with the Health Department and their new guidelines.
We have been inspected and given the ok that we are good. But they  still have not given the go ahead to reopen. With that being said we have decided not to reopen. Bills keep coming and with 2 weeks no income it’s put us in a financial bind. 
The restrictions put into place by the Shelby County Government is restricting us to 25% capacity that only allows for 30 customers at a time. They have essentially ripped the rug out from under my business and are making it impossible to continue doing business, pay my employees and make any kind of profit.
This decision has not come easily. I have employees to think about as well as my family. I also have to consider my health and well being.
I am going to take this opportunity to spend time with my 3, soon to be 4 grandchildren, take a trip or two with my husband and make my health a priority.
Thank you to all of my friends and family that have been so supportive of us for the last several years! We appreciate and love each and every one of you and we look forward to this next chapter in our lives.
Thank you for the memories!"

Then on February 6, 2021, the bar posted this on Facebook, 
"Ok, most people know that The Legacy was shut down by the SCHD on Dec. 14,2020 for “breaking the rules” I will OWN that one. But when a great band like Twin Soul is playing it’s hard to keep control. We as owners and employees did everything that the SCHD told us we had to do to reopen. We were inspected and PASSED on Dec. 21, 2020. We ask if we could reopen and she informed us that she would turn it in and Bruce Randolph would have to approve it and send someone to take the sign off the door so we could reopen. Another week passed and no word. So we made the tough decision to close our doors permanently. Well!!! I’m starting to adjust to there just no being a Legacy in Arlington anymore. Owner locked us out, everything is going downhill! 
THEN I see this on the news last week! I wasn’t going to post anything! But I have just one question.......Who the hell buried the Legacy paperwork to keep us from reopening!! I wanted to reach out to News Channel 3 to let them know they had their information completely wrong. Who has this power! Who ever you are I hope your happy!"

So, it appears they violated the health department rules and had to shut down temporarily, but the owners made the decision to close permanently after that. 

Legacy Bar & Grille was originally named Game Time Sports Grill until Bar Rescue changed their name during their episode.  They did keep the name given to them by Bar Rescue and here is the detailed update from when their episode aired.  

Legacy Bar & Grill has been marked as 'Closed' on the Bar Rescue Updates page
