Want a cozy place to watch the Beavers take on the Ducks this month?

“We opened our sports bar at the north side of our restaurant last February,” said Daniel Velasco, owner of Ixtapa Mexican Restaurant in Stayton. “We wanted to add something new to the restaurant.”

That “something new” just might be a place for a ocal fans to view Oregon State vs. University of Oregon in the Civil War clash on Nov. 23.

The Ixtapa sports bar has a big-screen TV and several Oregon Video Lottery machines. Customers can order off the restaurant’s menu, which offers all the Mexican classics, or just enjoy a beverage.

“We don’t have a big space in the bar, but we plan to expand in the future,” Velasco said.

“We’re waiting to finish the other room. In the future, we’ll have events, musicians and other activities.”

Velasco said the response to the addition has been good.

“We’ve been really busy,” he said. “Some of the new customers like to eat in the bar.”

The sports bar is open and the TV tuned into a game 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
