Looks like the great business team of Bobby Seward & Kevin Todd are ready to send another bundle of cash down the toilet by opening up the old Electric Company as a sports bar.Nothing like a new fresh idea, lik the other "successful" sports bars that are in Utica.....USA Club at Holiday Inn, Coaches Corner, etc etc. The best part is that they didn't even take their time to remodel the place and try to spruce up the building. Can you imagine either one of these guys going to the bank and trying to get a business loan.

Because Bobby cries that Sickenburger and the Harp make all the money and he and his shotty bar don't get any. So he enlisted tardo Kevin Todd to put money into a turd that they will make some money in before the cockroach infested falling down building collapses. Who is the fool. They will leave with money in their pockets.

Honestly, Utica does not need another sausage fest.
They would have been better off putting in a nice dance club like Strut with Air Conditioning and a nominal cover charge. The girls/women on Varick would love it and single guys like myself would rather hang out there watching people have fun instead of standing around at other places. I go to watch the lovely ladies, not argue over who's the best goaltender in the NHL

If you want a nice dance club get on varick st and open it. Its not your money if someone wants to open a bar because that is what they like then its their money, if you don't like it don't go there. I don't think anyone is twisting your arm. to funny how everyone complains when somethings opens and its not to their liking, guess maybe if you want something open it.

I agree 100% which is why you won't ever have to worry about me coming in your place. You should have done a better job with your marketing homework first! Scantly clad women dancing equals guys spending money buying drinks. It's a simple formula. People want to have fun and not hang around like a bunch of mopes. There are plenty of sports theme bars from Tony's, Recovery Room, and the Cage...on and on. If I want to watch sports, I'll stay home. When I'm out, I like to play my own sport :) Good luck!

Someone needs to open a really good gay bar. Women love that shit. Dance with their gay guys and the music is fun as hell. I used to go to the gay bars in Boston and would pick us so many chicks being the lone straight guy. You don't even know.

I think that place like this is a good fit for Varick street. I think the design of the bar in EC is suitable for a sports bar. I agree in that people should support it rather than find reasons to not have buisnesses try there uck especially on Varick street. I wish them success. However, I wish they din;t pick a tackey name tho.

The reason it's a sports bar being opened on varick st is because THERE ARE NO SPORTS BARS stop trashing people and find something better to do .. If you wanna hang out with gays go to saranac, plenty go! And while you're there stop into shots and say hi to the owners for me!

Any bar that the 2 Joe's (George & Zielinski) go to is a gay bar.

I actually think that there will be dancing....I know that they are having bands in there. Don't know who or how well they do but there are bands....that's a plus and will get people dancing...hopefully.

Just wish they could be a cool bar without having to offend. Loved EC it was home to many of us. Would have welcomed any bar with live music even cover band- have a blast seeing them. Questioning the integrity of the previous owner is just bad in any book. A disapointing addition to Varick st. Would have been better if the previous patrons were welcomed with open arms.
