JOHNSON CITY, N.Y. — Mooney’s Sports Bar and Grill formally opened its 10th location in the village of Johnson City in the town of Union, on Dec. 4.

Brian Harris, co-owner of Mooney’s, was set to host a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony that day at the newly renovated site of the former Ground Round, at 214 Reynolds Road, according to a Town of Union news release. Town officials were scheduled to present Mooney’s with a certificate of business appreciation.

Mooney’s Sports Bar and Grill, a family- friendly combination of an Irish pub and sports bar and grill serving the Southern Tier and Western New York, was founded in 2010.
