DCâ€™s Sports Bar, Inc. brings a unique combination of tradition and family to one of Lakelandâ€™s newest establishments. Located in historic Dixieland, this Lakeland landmark has a long, successful history dating back to the 60â€™s when many knew it as â€œZimmermanâ€™sâ€. DCâ€™s was established in late 2008, and after extensive remodeling, opened its doors in January, 2009. Newcomers soon learn that family is also at the heart of DCâ€™s. Capitalizing on son, Andyâ€™s, years of experience in restaurant management, DCâ€™s is locally owned and operated by Steve and Joy Browne along with their sons, Andy and Ryan, and Andyâ€™s wife, Chrissy. The Browne family mission has been to create a fun, friendly â€œhometown barâ€ atmosphere where customers can walk in and immediately feel at ease. People smile at you when you walk in the door, they know your name, and if they donâ€™t, they are sure to soon.
Itâ€™s easy to see why DCâ€™s is quickly becoming one of Lakelandâ€™s new favorite hangouts for sports and fun. With six large screened HDTVâ€™s, DCâ€™s now offers the ESPN Game Plan and the NFL Sunday Ticket where fans can come to cheer on their favorite team. When the big game isnâ€™t on, DCâ€™s features a wide variety of entertainment. Karaoke is offered on Sunday and Thursday evenings, Open-Musicianâ€™s Night is offered on Tuesday evenings, Texas Holdâ€™em Poker is offered on Wednesday evenings, and live entertainment is provided on Saturday nights. In addition, DCâ€™s has free WI-FI, a state of the art digital jukebox with access to thousands of songs, darts, Silver Strike Bowling, and Golden Tee Golf.
DCâ€™s has recently expanded to serving full liquor and is celebrating with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Wednesday, October 21st and a community Grand Opening and Appreciation Celebration October 21-25th.
