Although the beloved Horseshoe Lounge is closing the doors to its South Lamar Boulevard location this weekend, on the same day it’ll celebrate its 50th anniversary, owner Tennia Brown has found a new home for it on East Riverside Drive.
Next door to Thundercloud Subs (and right across the street from the Statesman, oh, boy), the new location will have much of the same spirit as the old one, along with the classic neon sign, the shuffleboard and the employees who have helped to make the beer bar so special — and it’ll also have the additions of liquor and the ability to pay with credit cards.
Expect the new Horseshoe Lounge to be open at 153 E. Riverside Dr. this summer.
In the meantime, say goodbye to the current one. The final few days will feature live music performances, including some surprise guests. And on Sunday, the final day, the bar will auction off the last beer.
