A new soccer bar is coming to the east side of Sioux Falls.
Xtra Time Sports Bar is expected to open in late May on East Arrowhead Parkway in a retail center near Shopko.
In addition to watching soccer on the bar’s three TVs, customers will be able to play snooker, carom billiards and darts, owner Kalyan Dahal said.
Dahal is closing Aashna Outfits & Accessories on April 10 to begin remodeling the space for the sports bar. He started the clothing store in 2015 and also owns the adjacent Aashna Asian Mart, which opened in July 2017.
Business at the grocery has been “pretty good, so that’s why I’m extending the store and adding a bar,” said Dahal, a Bhutanese refugee who moved to Sioux Falls in 2009.
He doesn’t intend to sell food at Xtra Time. “We’ll just have beer and wine.”
Dahal is in the process of getting an alcohol license and conditional use permit from the city.
Another business owned by refugees from Bhutan also is coming to Arrowhead Parkway. Himalayan Indian Cuisine is expected to open in April in a retail center that’s closer to Walmart.
Xtra Time Sports Bar is expected to open in late May on East Arrowhead Parkway in a retail center that’s anchored by Shopko.
