Well, at least as patrons knew it. Under new ownership (a man named Herb Lavender, Jr.), the bar has been remodeled and redubbed O'Malley's Sports Pub, according to a message posted on the Francesca's website a few weeks ago.
Here's the full message:
"It is with a very sad heart that we are announcing Francesca's Sports Bar has been sold. Effective immediately, the new name is now O'Malley's Sports Pub. A few changes will be made but most of the faces will stay the same. Herb is the new owner and we hope you will give him a Francesca's style friendly welcome and show him all the love and support you have shown us over the years.
We have had such a great time with all of you, so many memories!! Thank you...
We actually have a whole lot more to say... but where do we start? If only these walls could talk (or maybe it's better they can't).

O'Malleys had its official ribbon-cutting ceremony with the city on May 27 and has been serving up the same Irish pub grub and craft beers along with karaoke, flip cup and beer pong tournaments and live music.
