Last week, a petition popped up claiming that Chumley’s would “reopen shortly” and “no longer operate as a speakeasy, but more closely to a sports bar.” Well, Chumley’s operator Jim Miller wrote an e-mail to DNA Info calling the whole thing nonsense: “We at Chumley’s have absolutely no intention of trying to become a sports bar or anything of the like,” he wrote, adding that he didn’t know “how such a rumor got started.” Given Chumley’s history, we’d be surprised if it turned into much of anything anytime in the near future, but we shall remain hopeful.
