posted: 09/14/2017 4:30 a.m. Comment 1

Club Level, 315 Main St., Little Rock, closed Saturday night, and Sunday morning owner Brad McCray started installing Brewski's Pub & Grub, a sports bar with a target opening of the first week of October. A sign with the new logo (which resembles the one belonging to the popular bar in the TV show Cheers) is already on display high on the building's wall facing south on Main Street, and on a banner hanging above the door saying it's "coming soon." Initially it'll open at 3 p.m. with plans to open for lunch after the first of the year. The menu will feature upscale pub fare at custom-made rustic dining tables. They're apparently keeping the same phone number: (501) 372-1515.

There were no other Japanese restaurants/sushi bars along the entire stretch of Cantrell, not just west of Interstate 430 but west of Riverdale.
