One last jab: Urban Meyer opening Columbus-area restaurant, complete with '7-0 Room'
Urban Meyer is reportedly trying his hand in the restaurant business.
On Saturday morning, Columbus-area restaurant group Corso Ventures announced that it has partnered with Meyer to open a new restaurant in Dublin, Ohio. The new establishment will be named Urban Meyer’s Pint House.
Meyer’s restaurant will be a destination for Ohio State fans, especially considering that the former Buckeyes head coach has taken one last jab at Michigan with the creation of the establishment. According to Eleven Warriors, the restaurant will feature Urban’s “7-0 Room,” a private event space commemorating Meyer’s perfect record against the Wolverines.
The restaurant is expected to open this fall, though a grand opening date was not announced.
“When Corso Ventures approached me with this unique opportunity to partner with their elite restaurant and hospitality team on a Pint House in Bridge Park, it was a no-brainer,” Meyer said in a statement. “Not only does Urban Meyer’s Pint House allow me to stay attached to the central Ohio community, but it will also make the perfect space to host events supporting our foundation.”
Meyer plans to host events for the Urban & Shelley Meyer Fund for Cancer Research at the new restaurant, as well.
