The Reef, a sports bar and grill that had operated for more than a decade on Warner just west of Arizona Avenue in Chandler, has moved to a new location about a quarter-mile away.

Its new home is a 5,120-square-foot building on the northeast corner of Arizona and Warner. The building most recently housed Mi Linda Mexican restaurant.

The Reef describes itself as ‘‘Arizona’s finest dive bar,’’ a tongue-in-cheek reference to owner Mark Vargovich’s passion for deep sea diving. In 2012, Vargovich bought what was then known as The Draft House and renamed it.

Its former home on Warner, which closed in April, will reopen later this summer as  (‘‘B Squared’’), a burgers-and-beer concept.
