Hulk Hogan is opening a new restaurant in Tampa.
Hulk Hogan has worn many hats over the years. Most recently, he dipped into the world of radical dining and his new business will be officially opening on New Year’s Eve.
Dubbed, ‘Hogan's Beach’ the 20,000 square foot restaurant is located at the Best Western Bay Harbor hotel in Tampa. The space can accommodate 360 people.
Hogan states “It's going to be Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville times 10; Hooters times 10. It's a logical extension of the Hogan brand, with my image and likeness.” Hogan plans to be an active presence at the enterprise, serving as a general manager.
The chefs will offer seafood and steaks. There will also be a tiki and sushi bar.
The restaurant also showcases indoor and outdoor dance floors and a mechanical shark ride.
Hogan opted to keep the menu simple rather than adding stereotypical wrestling names to dishes, but he still hopes to add that glamour element. He states “It's Bay Watch, Muscle Beach and Cheers all in one.”
This isn’t the first time Hogan has dabbled in the dining business as his first restaurant was called Pasta Mania which was located in the Mall of America.
