Gonna be called Saloon 16.
And……No! ….It ain’t gonna be in “Omaha”!
It’ll be in Knoxville!
Shoulda called it Peyton Place!
In Tennessee and looking for a classy place to booze up while feeling like you’re in a country western movie??
Peyton Manning clearly knows the feeling … and is fixing the issue — by opening up a “high-end watering hole” in Knoxville in 2020!!!
The QB and Graduate Hotels announced Thursday they’re building a “western-inspired” bar and restaurant near University of Tennessee’s campus.
The name of the place? Saloon 16 … a homage to Manning’s nickname, “The Sheriff,” as well as the No. 16 jersey he wore when he was a star with the Volunteers.
It’s supposed to be an awesome spot — complete with dartboards, jukeboxes, a piano and an outdoor dining area.
Graduate Hotels says the place will open its doors in the spring of 2020.
