Although their original Facebook post said they would not reopen, Christies owner Ashton Christie has kept faith in the beloved sports bar’s future
Just before Thanksgiving, Christies announced they would reopen early next year on Greenville Avenue.
“I have always ... thought [Greenville Avenue] would be a great second location for Christies,” Christie says. “Considering what happened to the original location, it was a no-brainer where we wanted to head to next. We are very excited to be a part of the neighborhood.”
Christies will open in the space previously occupied by Slater’s 50/50 in Lower Greenville, and it will be owned by Ashton Christie and Jordan Carson, the latter of whom worked at the original Christies under Christie as a manager.
“Me and Ashton both have always loved Greenville Ave., and Greenville Ave. has always been a huge part of the heart of Dallas,” Carson says. “After months of hoping for a new location, everything fell into place. There are so many great districts in Dallas. When we found this was available, it was the only place we could picture the new Christies.”

The new Christies will boast multiple levels, according to Carson, along with a rooftop and more television screens.
Christies will still remain centered on sports, and Carson assures us their famous wings are there to stay.
A grand opening for the new location date is expected to be announced soon.
“We were the Cheers of Uptown, and now we will be the Cheers of Greenville,” Carson says.
