Stats on 17th is one of the newer sports bars in the area, and we kind of have a love-hate relationship with it. We love it because the space is huge and there’s about a one-to-one ratio of huge leather sectionals to projector screens. So if you can commandeer a couch with a bunch of friends, you can basically make this place your own personal living room. Just maybe avoid it on weekend nights, when they bring a DJ out and it turns into more of a club scene with strobes and the occasional appearance of a fog machine. Unless that’s what you’re into, in which case, please proceed.
