I mean, there was really no other option, right?
Koe Wetzel has been working on a new venture for a few months now, a bar and restaurant called Koe Wetzel’s Riot Room, in Fort Worth, Texas.
We broke the story back in January that the Texas rock star was working on it, and it looks like things have progressed along pretty quickly, as they’ve been sharing tons of sneak peaks on social media of what’s to come.
There wasn’t much other information out for a while, though, aside from a very simple website in progress, which is still pretty basic, but does feature the logo on the home page.
This past week, his team has been posting on Instagram and TikTok quite a bit, showing Koe with the bottle girls at the space filming some very Koe content:
And here’s a look at the outside:
And while there’s been no official confirmation yet, I have a sneaking suspicion it’s set to open on February 28th, which is next Tuesday.
Partially, it’s because it would only be right for that to be opening day, considering that’s basically a national holiday for Koe Wetzel fans, as it’s the name of his fan-favorite song “February 28, 2016.”
The “Taco Bell song,” as some fans lovingly refer to it, was included on Koe’s 2016 Noise Complaint record, and commemorates the day he was famously arrested seven years ago now.
But the other reason I think it could be opening next week is because one of the bottle girls, Liv, shared a behind-the-scenes look at their shoot the other day on Instagram, along with the caption:
“In 7, We Riot #koewetzel #koe #koewetzelsriotroom #fyp #trending.”
And at the time this was posted, that was exactly a week from February 28th:
From all the content I’ve seen so far, there’s no doubt in my mind that the bar will live up to its name, and will surely be a party destination for fans visiting Fort Worth.
The space is located at 1100 Foch Street, in what was previously a restaurant called The Dogwood, and investors previously noted that they were planning to have it ready sometime in February.
And even if it doesn’t open on the 28th (which it really should), it’s gotta be sometime in the very near future.
Koe is also gearing up to hit the road for his Road To Hell Paso tour, which kicks off next week in Tallahassee, Florida.
