The name game is ending for a popular Avondale Estates watering hole.
Denise Gerard confirmd Monday that she has settled on Brewhouse Cafe Avondale as the name for the bar on East College Avenue.
In the last three and a half months, it's been called the .
The Brewhouse Cafe Avondale will be a non-smoking, family sports bar, she said in an email.
"We are just working on our new signs hope to have them up by next week," she said.
How did one bar end up with four names in less than four months?
The James Joyce opened in 2002 and developed a loyal following. It had an Irish theme, with dark wood booths and framed posters celebrating Irish sports and culture hanging from the walls.
and reopened a few days later as modeled after and run by the Hail Mary sports bar in Grayson. The dark wood booths remained, but multiple television were now attached to the walls.
Gerard said she expected the Hail Mary folks to keep running the bar, but they pulled out in December. Gerard started took over the pub again, needed a new name quick and went with the Avondale Arms.
But she knew that wouldn't last, and she was leaning toward a name similar to that of her other bar, the Brewhouse Cafe in Little Five Points.
