It looks insanely cool. It'll be good for the market.

MLSE? As long as they don't show Leafs games over Sens games. Also, it should look great next to Giant Tiger

Too bad the Sens group didn't get to something like this first! I'm sure I'll try it out, but it'd have to be mind-blowing to overcome the thought of my dollars helping the Leafs.

Can't wait to try Big Rig!

MLSE is a separate entity from the Maple Leafs. If i go there, i will not feel like i am giving my money to the enemy. Should i cancel my bell and/or rogers plans now too?

If it's a good place to watch the game and entertain myself, I dont care who owns it. It's not like the maple leafs budget of infinity will change based on ottawa earned Real Sports dollars.

I appreciate their hiring practices as well. Always a great place to go and eat a good meal and get a good eyeful.

MLSE is incapable of running a successful sports franchise in terms of wins vs losses. What they can do, though, is make money. However, I wouldn't walk into a bar owned by anything associated with MLSE if they served me free beer!

Umm, hell yes.

Lol all the "zomg hate MLSE" crowd. A proper sports bar in Ottawa, we've been waiting for one for how long?

Been to the one in Winnipeg. It's amazing. This is really awesome, Ottawa needs a real sports bar.

Really looking forward to this. You don't have to fight for a seat to see a TV. Love it.

It looks like it'll be a mix of both a bar\club, which will be great for business.

Agree! We have a ton of small -> medium sports bars, but nothing amazing. We need to up the anty on some of the attractions in this area for sure.

Was really hoping we'd get a bar like Flames Central.

Depends. Will they foolishly show Toronto based sports games or will they respect our city and our teams and show Ottawa based sports? If they don't then hell, may the junkies run them out of the market.

I first went to the one at Maple Leaf Square for a business function and loved it. I've gone back a lot.

Yes it's MLSE. It's also a really cool experience. I hope it doesnt kill off the smaller bars but it's miles ahead of places like Local Heros. Being in Ottawa, it will have a Sens focus I'm sure.

The size will make it great for playoff hockey. Definitely could become a go-to place for young professionals. I've found it's a great place to meet people in Toronto.
