Komedy Lounge will be launching new sports bar and cigar lounge concepts Sept. 1 while continuing to host comedy shows, owner Leonard Hayes confirmed Aug. 28. After the planned closure of the venue was announced in July, Hayes and his wife, Tracey, opted to keep Komedy Lounge open and expand its offerings.

Professional and college games will be played in the venue where patrons will be able to enjoy cigars and a comedy or music show. Komedy Lounge will also be launching a new chicken wing menu with deals like $1.50 wings and $3.50 drafts, Hayes said.
