Tobacco Road Sports Café is the newest Glenwood South restaurant that has set up shop in the 222 Glenwood building. This is a great place to plan an outing around watching sports. The main room is very open and there are TV’s at every angle. They also have a private room which you can reserve for your party with its own huge plasma TV. Behind the bar, there are plenty of taps and beers for you to choose from as well as your local favorites.
Their website suggests that they are not a sports bar. In reality, Tobacco Road is more of a restaurant with a sports theme. The mobile broadcast booth is used by 99.9 The Fan on occasion and I think could potentially bring some buzz to downtown if used to interview sports celebrities.
