Blake Shelton and Grand Ole Opry parent company Ryman Hospitality Properties have announced April 14 as the grand opening date of Ole Red Orlando.
Marking the fourth location of Shelton’s popular bar, restaurant and entertainment venue chain, Ole Red Orlando at ICON Park on International Drive will bring “the best of Southern food, hospitality and live country music to the Number One travel destination in the United States.”
Featuring two levels of space with room for 500 patrons and costing a cool $15 million to build, the new property will boast three bars serving Orlando-only specialties, plus a full kitchen cooking up a Shelton-inspired menu of items like “Champagne of Fried Chicken.” Meanwhile, a state of the art performance space will draw up-and-coming talent all week long — often “hand-picked by Opry Entertainment Group’s programming team.”
Ole Red Orlando joins previously opened venues in Nashville; Gatlinburg, Tennessee; and Shelton’s hometown of Tishomingo, Oklahoma. Shelton recently released the romantic new single, “Nobody But You,” a duet with pop star and real-life girlfriend, Gwen Stefani.
