Stadium Sports Bar at 620 W. Maple has closed.

Owner Lori Fry closed the sports bar, which she has run for nine years, at the end of business on Saturday.

“With a heavy heart I will be closing The Stadium after 9 great years,” she wrote on the bar’s Facebook page. “I know all good things must come to an end. Boy we sure had a lot of fun in that place.”

The bar, which operated in the shadow of Lawrence-Dumont Stadium, was known for its bar food and its lineup of live music. Popular local group Sleepy Truckers played there regularly.

The building was home to Downtown Wally Brown's before it became Stadium Sports Bar in 1998.

I have a message into Fry and will update this post if I hear back.
