East-side soccer bar opens

June 15, 2018

A new soccer bar has opened in time for the sport’s biggest event of the year, the World Cup.

Xtra Time Sports Bar features four TVs to view the action. It’s on Arrowhead Parkway east of Sycamore Avenue in a retail center near Shopko.

“The main focus is for the World Cup, and after that it’ll probably focus on European games like the Premier League,” owner Kalyan Dahal said. The bar also will follow Major Soccer League’s U.S. and Canadian teams.

Dahal, a Bhutanese refugee who moved to Sioux Falls in 2009, closed Aashna Outfits and Accessories to turn it into the sports bar. He also owns the adjacent Aashna Asian Mart.

The bar serves domestic and imported beers by the bottle, including the Indian beers Taj Mahal and Flying Horse.

Xtra Time doesn’t serve food, but “if customers want to order in (from a restaurant) they sure can,” Dahal said.

He’s waiting for the snooker table to be delivered, but the carom billiards table is ready for play.

Hours are noon to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to midnight Friday through Sunday.
