PBR Cowboy Bar + Smokehouse to Open First Ohio Location

A PBR Cowboy Bar + Smokehouse will open in early 2024 at Easton Town Center in Columbus, Ohio.

The Columbus venue was announced by Professional Bull Riders (PBR) and Live! Hospitality & Entertainment. It will be the 15th location for the lifestyle extension brand after the company opened three PBR Cowboy Bars openings last year. “To be able to open our 15th location, and first in Ohio, is incredibly exciting for us and for our fans,” said PBR CEO and Commissioner Sean Gleason.

The 8,400-square-foot restaurant and bar will offer a Western chic environment with a state-of-the-art media wall for major sporting events including PBR events. It will also feature a stage for live music, line dancing, and the only league-endorsed mechanical bull.

“PBR Cowboy Bar + Smokehouse is bringing a new and exciting combination of incredible food, first-class hospitality and an authentic country western experience to the Columbus market,” said Scott Steenrod, Chief Operating Officer of Live! Hospitality & Entertainment.

Connect Industrial Midwest 2024 will take place on March 5, 2024, at Joe’s Live in Rosemont, Illinois. Click here for more information and to register.
