Bill Murray Plans To Open Sports Bar And Restaurant In Chicago

After releasing a clothing line, Bill Murray is planning to open a sports-themed bar in Chicago. This is The "Lost In Translation" actor's second restaurant with his family.

According to Chicago Eater, actor and comedian Bill Murray, along with his four brothers, plans to open a 1980's Caddyshack themed restaurant in suburban Rosemont. The Murray brothers reached an agreement that they are going to rent a space inside the Crowne Plaza for their Caddyshack sports bar and grill. This would be their second restaurant--the first one, located in a golf resort in Florida, opened 15 years ago.

This planned sports-themed bar is reminiscent of Murray's role as a greenskeeper Carl Spackler in the 1980 golf comedy movie "Caddyshack" according to Daily Herald. The film was about six brother's experiences as caddies in a golf club in Winnetka, which is also inspired by real life events.

Andy Murray, one of the brothers, is currently running the Caddyshack Florida branch and is looking for a new location for their second bar and grill. According to Mayor Brad Stephens, there were no other available slots in town, which is why the Crowne Plaza location was chosen. There is already a verbal agreement from the Murray brothers to lease out an 11,000-square-foot space inside Crowne Plaza across the street from Rosemont Theatre box office.

With the restaurant's tagline "Eat, drink and be Murray", diners can only expect good things. If the second bar stays true to their Florida branch menu, pub goers can expect to see chicken tenders, pork sliders, and wraps in the Chicago Caddyshack menu. But staying true to the Chicago scenery, there will also be a Chicago-style hot dog up for grabs. There will be numerous Midwestern items such as Sheboygan brats and they might bring in the dolphin sandwich.

There is still no news regarding the opening timeline as of yet. However, the Murrays are required to submit blueprints for the new Caddyshack bar and grill to the local officials. And with Caddyshack Florida branch's success, it is not hard to imagine the Chicago hub turn into a successful venture of the Murray brothers.
