JVZ BONEZ AMERICANA BAR AND GRILL
THE PERFECT SPOT FOR SPORTS
With the NFL season heating up, the NHL and NBA coming into focus and an odd winter World Cup, sports fans have more event multi-tasking than ever.
JVZ BONEZ Americana Bar and Grill at Bridge Center in Bluffton has the ultimate solution for fanatics. They feature a wall with over 500 inches of ways to watch the big game.
“We can put eight different requested games on these bad boys, or we can combine them to show one big event,” said the BONEZ part of the equation, bar manager Anthony Barone. “It is a sports junkie’s paradise, because Johnny and me, we’re both sports addicts ourselves.”
Johnny is John Van Zuylen, the JVZ in the restaurant’s name.
“You’re going to get an epic viewing spot and a menu elevated with all kinds of personal touches. It’s not your typical bar food,” he said. “We wanted to create a haven and a sports lovers’ family here. The bigger the game, the more we shine.”
