The Beginning was established in 1982.

The name was derived from the Chicago song, “Only the Beginning”, which for me, was exactly what this was, a beginning to a long adventure.

We have been a mainstay in the live music industry since the beginning (no pun intended). I have had live acts ranging from Buddy Rich to Marshall Tucker, and of course, the local favorites. We’re the initial home of outdoor volleyball and it’s been going strong, our 26th season just completed. Along with our new volleyball courts, we have an outdoor cabana bar, and horseshoe pits. Plans are in the works for some additions to our outdoor facilities.

We offer a full menu in a sports tavern environment with ten televisions including a large screen and the NFL and MLB Packages. It is a casual atmosphere, where you can relax, kick back, watch Sports Center, check out your fantasy football team, hang out with friends while playing darts, shuffle board, or use our pool table. And of course, it’s always fun to jump on the newest video game.

The full menu includes my famous Chicken Wings, the special wing sauce is my original recipe, and is known to many as the best in Syracuse.

I have sponsored sports from race cars to softball, hockey, flag football, darts, bowling, soccer to volleyball. It’s fun to have the teams come in with their winning spirits…after a good game.

With a large bottle and draft beer selection, you can come in knowing we’ll be carrying your favorite beer, or have the newest microbrew. Along with a full beer menu, we offer a nice wine & spirit selection, either way your going to be in store for a fun-filled visit.

I appreciate you visiting our website, and feel free to come see us any time, we are located in East Syracuse on 290, one mile past Wal-mart on the left.

Sincerely,

Michael J. Krajacic
