Macho’s Restaurant to open in Allentown

May 10, 2018 by  

A new sports bar and restaurant is scheduled to open in Allentown this month, taking the place of the recently closed Sugar Hill Jazz House.

The new owner Francisco Macho Velez is currently renovating the restaurant. He is planning a neighborhood sports bar where the whole family can come.

He wants it to be a fun and affordable restaurant to visit. He says they plan to have lunch specials for nearby workers, kids, and families.

The restaurant located on 39 S. Ninth Street will be open for customers for lunch and dinner. It will serve burgers, sandwiches, and steak entrees.

Velez wants to develop Spanish, Jamaican, and other ethnic entrees to add to the food menu. He is planning to have cheesesteak sandwiches, grilled chicken salad sandwiches, tacos, pulled pork, hot dogs, or fish as daily luncheon specials.

The restaurant will seat over 150 and have a digital jukebox, 15 20-inch TVs, and two pool tables.

The bar’s weekly happy hour will be 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm with food and drink specials and a special food buffet on Fridays.

Velez is installing new kitchen equipment, new furniture, sports memorabilia, and plans to have DJ entertainment on select nights.

Allentown has printing services the help with the design of flyers for restaurants, businesses, clubs, and retail stores for special events and promotions.
