Guests got a sneak peek at Mike Miller’s Let It Fly Sports Bar, where guests will soon be able to eat, drink, and game.

Asked what he wanted the place to be, Miller, Memphis Tigers assistant college basketball coach and former Memphis Grizzlies player, says, “The city’s restaurant. The city’s bar.”


With the emphasis on? “Fun. Good food and fun.”



The media night party, which was held July 23rd at the restaurant at 9091 Poplar in Germantown, emphasized fun and food. Food included a whole hog and the trimmings by Melissa Cookston of Memphis Barbecue Company. Charvey Mac provided the entertainment.

Let It Fly president David Rodriguez says the new venue, which is slated to open August 26th, will serve “elevated food. High-end food and drink.”

Entertainment will include 29 TVs, which sounds staggering for a 4,500 square-foot space.

Let It Fly also will feature two full swing golf simulators, which were up and running at the party.

As for the food, executive chef Rickey Lesley says they will feature a slider bar where guests can create their own sliders, which will be made on site. “We will build it for you,” Lesley says.

These will include sliders made of brisket, chicken, and pulled pork. Let It Fly is partnering with Cookston.

The restaurant also will offer pizzas and 15 different varieties of hot wings.

One of the elevated ingredients used at the restaurant will be “seasoned lime sour cream and homemade salsa,” Lesley says.

Ken Ratliff is Let It Fly CFO and Shellie Kenton is general manager.
