LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Over the past few years, a restaurant location in Lincoln has gone through several changes.

70th and A in Lincoln was first home to "Grandmother's" then "Tanner's Bar and Grill" and this summer, "Sparta Games" moved in. Now it looks like Sparta Games is already moving out.

According to the Sparta Bar and Grill- Lincoln Facebook page, they posted saying they are closing their doors Saturday because of a leasing dispute.

Sparta just opened in June. They add they aren't sure where they are moving, but they'll know in the next couple of months.

Back in May of this year, owner Aaron Bonar said Sparta Bar and Grill prides itself on being a gaming community that also serves food and drink.

Bonar has owned and operated Sparta Games in Omaha for the past two years, but said the expansion to Lincoln provides an opportunity take his business plan to “a whole new level.”
