A wide and very open empty lot in Centennial will become the third outpost for popular locals' destination Sagos Baja Tavern & Lounge. Well known for their happy hour deals and the looseness of their gaming, the original tavern opened in Spring Valley in 2006 and they later took over Kilroy's in Chinatown in 2015.
At the intersection of Oso Blanca and Farm Road, the built-from-scratch concept will fill 4,150 square feet in a yellow, red and stacked stone colored building and add 850 square feet of patio space surrounded by landscaping.
Inside, a dominant central bar sits close to plenty of curved booths. While current permits do not mention gaming, space has been earmarked for 15 machines at the bar. In Spring Valley, the Baja-themed sports lounge makes good use of their 170-inch and 204-inch projection TVs and offers a familiar bar menu of sliders, hot dogs, sandwiches and breakfast choices like the $14 "High Roller Steak and Eggs."
But even as they begin seeking city approvals comes word a rival will be situated less than half a mile away, at a new retail hub at the intersection of Oso Blanca and Decatur Boulevard. Planned to include two future restaurants, the 282,975-square-foot center will add a 24-hour, 5,300-square-foot PT's Tavern, offering a round-the-clock menu, gaming and plenty of sports on their TVs. A timetable for completion for both projects has yet to be announced.
