Downtown Atlanta sports bar fails health inspection

An Atlanta sports bar failed a health inspection last week, earning the grade of 57/U.

The bar, The League Tavern, is downtown on the corner of West Peachtree Street Northwest and Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard.

On Thursday, an inspector with the Georgia Department of Public Health noted 13 violations, including seeing raw chicken stored on the floor of the walk-in cooler.

The inspector also observed hand-washing sinks used to store cloths and utensils, molded cheese, unclean dishes on the clean dish rack, several food items not holding proper temperatures, unlabeled spray bottles, a dishwasher in disrepair, hot water not provided at the employee hand wash sink and other violations. The inspector also noted that the food service permit was not displayed.

According to its Facebook page, The League Tavern has five different floors and more than 14,000 square feet. A separate bar in the building was inspected on the same day and passed, receiving a score of 88/B.

Before it became The League Tavern, the spot was a restaurant owned by Atlanta-based rapper T.I. called Scales 925.

The League Tavern received a 100/A on its previous health inspection on Dec. 1, 2016.

A message left by The AJC with the bar’s director of marketing on Tuesday was not immediately returned. A re-inspection date has not been set.
