Rascal Flatts have become the latest musicians to enter the restaurant business. A business venture that has been a long time in the making.
Gary, Jay and Joe Don have set their sights on opening a new eatery in a waterfront redevelopment in Cleveland, Ohio, which is currently under construction.
The venue, which has yet to be named, is described as an “eclectic space” mixing “country themes with rustic and industrial stylings”, while the restaurant will feature a large patio area and indoor performance space, reports.
“A restaurant supported by a national name like Rascal Flatts is the perfect addition to the Flats East Bank,” explained developer Scott Wolstein. “From the beginning, we set out to build an urban waterfront destination, and we’re excited to be able to offer this type of concept in conjunction with our existing restaurants and entertainment venues.”
The venue is expected to be open for business this fall.
Rascal Flatts have strong ties to Ohio – Gary LeVox and Jay DeMarcus were born in Columbus, while LeVox also graduated from Ohio State University.
The group will hit the road this summer for their 2016 Rhythm & Roots Tour. The tour kicks off June 17 and runs through Sept. 17 withKelsea Ballerini and Chris Lane opening.
