Amare from Downtown

Kobe Bryant Amare Stoudamire Suns

Amare doesn't just dazzle and dunk out on the hardwood, he also is quite the businessman as well. Stoudemire's Downtown is the name of a casual sports fan's restaurant co-owned by the Suns' superstar. According to an NBA TV video, Stoudamire partnered up with a business mind, Bill Smith and opened the place up, complete with flat screen TV's, pool tables, fully stocked bar, chef specialtys and even a few DJ's who come in a few times a week.

"The Statini" is aptly named after Stoudamire, aka "STAT". Statini features Amare's signature cocktail and toast with the superstars. Celebrity guests who've stopped by the restaraunt have included Rick Reilly (Sports Ilustrated) and Donovan McNabb of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Former Suns shooting star, Dan Majerle had his own restaurant in Phoenix as well, Majerle's Sports Grill. This may be the sign that a Phoenix Suns player bas become a superstar in Arizona, with Amare becoming the latest restaurant mogul. See more info about Stoudemire's Downtown at the official website.
