Hoops Sports Bar & Grill outta biz, but a big chain is rumored to be eyeing the downtown space

Hoops Sports Bar & Grill at 900 Biscayne Boulevard, a prime location right across from the AAA, has closed. Apparently the Canadian-based franchise quickly went from ‘eh’ to ‘meh’ and just couldn’t cut it. As for who will take over the sprawling, 7,000 square foot space is anyone’s guess, though we did hear some murmurs that a big chain along the lines of, say, an Applebee’s/Chili’s/Ruby Tuesday’s has their eyes on it.
