Urban Meyer’s Pint House to Open at Bridge Park
Short North Pint House is “Dublin” its number of locations. Branded as Urban Meyer’s Pint House, the second location is headed for the former RAM Restaurant & Brewery space at Bridge Park. An opening is slated for fall of this year.
It’s the first duplicate concept from local restaurant group Corso Ventures, which also owns Forno Kitchen + Bar, Standard Hall, Food Hall, and Goody Boy Diner. Former The Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer has partnered with Corso Ventures owner Chris Corso on this project.
“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 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.”
TVs broadcasting Ohio sports, a wide variety of craft beer, and made-from-scratch menu items — all the Pint House staples will transfer to the Bridge Park location. Additional fare, featuring favorites from Corso Ventures’ other restaurants, will also make an appearance.
At 8,500 square feet, Urban Meyer’s Pint House is twice the size of the Short North Pint House. Inside, guests will find Urban’s 7-0 room, a private event space named for Meyer’s record against the University of Michigan. While showcasing the awards, trophies and memorabilia Meyer has accumulated throughout his career, the 7-0 room will also host events by the Urban and Shelley Meyer Foundation. The restaurant will also feature an indoor-outdoor patio overlooking Bridge Park Avenue.
“Corso Ventures has always been committed to creating fun and exciting experiences across Columbus,” said Corso in a press release. “The vibrancy being built in Bridge Park makes it an obvious choice and we are thrilled to be honoring the career of Coach Urban Meyer with a venue that we envision will be Dublin’s premier destination to celebrate game day or any other special occasion.”
Pint House joins a number of other local businesses that have established additional locations at Dublin’s Bridge Park development, including Cap City fine Diner, Fado Pub and Kitchen, Fukuryu Ramen, Zeroz, Condado, and eventually North Market.
With the closure of RAM’s Dublin location, the business is no longer in the Ohio market. Their Short North location closed last June and that spot will soon be filled by the creators of Cleveland’s Greenhouse Tavern.
