A Shockoe Bottom sports bar has served its last drink.
Major Willy’s, which launched in late 2011, closed Monday night, according to the company handling the property.
The 8,000-square-foot space is on the market, said Sarah Krumbein, a property manager for Fulton Hill Properties. Fulton Hill owns the building at 115 S. 15th St.
“We’re currently talking to several national retailers and local restaurateurs, but there’s no timeline for when we could see a new tenant,” Krumbein said.
Major Willy’s was founded by Dave McComas, the retired chief executive of convenience store chain Fas Mart, along with Chris Postlewaite and other partners.
BizSense was unable to reach any of the owners for comment. The phone at the business rings unanswered.
Krumbein said she couldn’t comment on why the business closed.
Before Major Willy’s, the building housed Stool Pigeons, a sports bar that closed in 2010.
The space is down the street from Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar, the Fish Bowl Bistro and Bar and Cha Cha’s Cantina.
A neighboring space that had long been vacant, the former Southern Railway Deli, was leased this year.
