Urban Meyer is becoming a restaurant owner.
Corso Ventures, a Columbus-area restaurant group, announced Saturday morning that it has partnered with Meyer to open a new restaurant, Urban Meyer's Pint House, in the Bridge Park district in Dublin, Ohio.
The restaurant will be modeled off of the Short North Pint House, located in the Short North Arts District in downtown Columbus, but will be double the size and include "Urban's 7-0 room," a private event space commemorating Meyer's perfect record against Michigan, according to a press release. The new restaurant will also host events for the Urban & Shelley Meyer Fund for Cancer Research.
“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 the press release. “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.”
The restaurant will open in the space previously occupied by RAM Restaurant and Brewery at 6632 Longshore Street in Dublin, and is expected to open this fall following renovations to the location.
Meyer, who lives in Dublin, is finding several ways to keep himself busy after retiring as Ohio State's football coach following last season. Meyer is now the assistant athletic director of athletics initiatives and relations at Ohio State, will appear on Fox's Saturday morning college football pregame show this fall and now, he'll also be a restaurateur.
