UPDATE: According to former owner, Lee Wortman, they purchased the bar in 1981, not 1990 as previously indicated in this article.
The popular Milk District sports bar, located at 2414 E. Robinson Street [GMap], has been in business since 1958 when it was doing business as Sportstown Grama Lena’s and gangsters used to counterfeit money in a secret apartment above the bar.
Owners Lee Wortman and Vicki Dore purchased the property in
1990 1981 and are now selling to longtime local bar operators, Aaron Dudek and Jason Anderson of The Woods, The Lodge, and Burton’s Bar in Thornton Park.
Dudek told Bungalower that he won’t be changing much, stating, “No big changes. Vicki and Lee have created a great establishment and we hope to continue the legacy and make them proud. No need to mess with what people like.”
Sportstown features multiple pool tables, shuffleboard, ping pong, skeeball, corn hole, electronic darts, outdoor seating, and multiple board games. The kitchen is open until 1 a.m.
