And there seems to be some truth to it: the website Koe Wetzel’s Riot Room is live with a list of jobs it’s hiring for that cover everything from bartenders to line cooks. No date is listed for the opening as of yet. Eater Dallas reached out to his reps for comment.
Wetzel just released a single last week with Kodak Black and Diplo called “Wasted.” Right on theme for a guy with a bar, eh?
While country musicians opening bars in Nashville has been so prolific that it’s almost expected now, with Garth Brooks and Eric Church plotting openings in the last year, Texas country stars, and certainly not those from the greater DFW area, have returned to grace our towns with any similar treatment. Perhaps Wetzel is starting a trend.
