Former Heroes and Legends will reopen, kind of under new management

A former owner of downtown Spokane sports bar Heroes and Legends is reopening a new bar in the same location, at 830 W. Riverside Ave.

The new business is called 24 Taps and will be a food-and-beverage sports bar, said owner and Spokane CPA Tom Griffiths.

Griffiths had partnered in Heroes and Legends with Spokane businessman Vern Hare. The business closed earlier this year.

Griffiths will be the sole owner of 24 Taps, he said, while the two men are co-owners of the building.

Griffiths said he will open 24 Taps no later than Aug. 23 — the national telecast of the football season opener for Eastern Washington University.

The bar’s food will be “stadium food,” he said, including burgers, sandwiches, nachos and light fare.

Beverage choices will include 13 craft beers made by local breweries, plus a steady supply of other regional beers.

For sports fans, 24 Taps will have 14 75-inch high-definition screens. The business will operate seven days a week.
