Amarillo Buildings That Seem To Be Cursed – 715 S. Polk
When you think about Downtown Amarillo, you think of the great history of our great city. Many businesses have come and gone. But some buildings just seem cursed.
Polk Street is a great place to spend an evening. However, over the years, Polk Street has seen many businesses come and go. One of these buildings is at 715 S. Polk. It has been many things over the years, mainly bars, but it seems as soon as one moves in, it moves right out.
So what all has been in there? Let's take a look back at 715 S. Polk.
This building was originally built in 1915, it was known as The Hollywood.
In early 2000 this location used to be Brewster's Pub. I remember the year of the infamous halftime performance where the world saw Janet Jackson's bare breast on TV. I was out with the radio station on a live remote at Brewster's Pub. It was a fun time.
Burrberrys occupied this space from 2006 to 2010.
This bar was open at this location 2011-2016.
Tom and Jerry's Sports Grill and Bar
Tom and Jerry's opened in October of 2016.
XR was open in this location in August 2017 and looking at their Facebook Page the location was up for lease in August of 2019.
Chesney's Whiskey Saloon
Chesney's opened on May 1, 2021, and it is currently open as of this post. They offer food, fun, and live music.
This building has seen many, many, crazy things since it was built in 1915. Can you remember what all was in this building?
