SHELTON, CT – Arooga’s Grille House & Sports Bar announced that they have re-opened their Shelton, CT franchise location on January 16th, 2022, with new ownership group McBride Holding Company, LLC, marking the group’s third location in the New England market, following Warwick, RI and Attleboro, MA, both of which opened in 2021.
Located at 387 Bridgeport Ave. in Shelton, CT, current and future fans can look forward to what makes Arooga’s the best sports bar in America with eighty-five wall-to-wall TVs allowing a view of every game from every seat, their made-to-order menu items from fresh, high-quality ingredients, including scratch-made appetizers such as their famous BIG Pretzel, Hand-Breaded Mozzarella Triangles and Pepper Jack Cubes, and of course their 5 time Buffalo Wing Festival award-winning wings, as well as hand-crafted cocktails made from real juices and premium spirits, and a beer list featuring 40 drafts including many local craft favorites. Arooga’s is certified by the Green Restaurant Association to reduce their environmental impact, and certified gluten free by Beyond Celiac, offering tons of gluten-free choices on their menu.
Arooga’s Rt. 8 Shelton will open to the public at 11:00 a.m. on January 16th, 2022, with a ribbon cutting ceremony. As an added incentive, the first one hundred fans to line up will be entered into a random drawing for prizes such as free appetizers, free entrees, free desserts, and free handhelds, and twenty lucky participants will win free wings for a year.
