The former Howell Building in downtown Cleveland will soon be the new home of Wild Eagle Saloon.
The Wild Eagle Saloon is described as having a modern twist to the traditional saloon, and patrons can expect an American menu with Southern roots, self-serve draft beer, gaming, televisions and live entertainment.
This ain't your regular bar or restaurant, though. The following details on Wild Eagle's plans make that clear:
The self-serve beer walls, dubbed "Inebriation Stations," are designed for guests to have control over their saloon experience. They can also immediately order food at the bar and choose their own seating table. It will also house indoor bocce ball courts, pool tables and vintage arcade games, along with the Rumble Room with a punching bag, arm wrestling machine, darts and its own Inebriation Station. So guests are, ostensibly, encouraged to get inebriated, play games, and if they lose, go take out their anger on a punching bag. In a public place.
"Clevelanders don't have to choose between a quality food and beverage experience, or a quality social experience anymore. By combining both of these experiences, we've created two floors of playful environments with ample nooks and crannies for mischief," said Keith Halfmann, Principal & COO of Geis Hospitality Group in a release. "We are really pushing the envelope with this concept. It won't be a place for our guests to take their grandmothers."
The Wild Eagle Saloon will be open during lunch, happy hour, dinner and late night. Plans are for a spring opening.
