Blake Shelton’s New Ole Red Orlando Planning Early Summer Opening After Delay

Blake Shelton’s new Ole Red restaurant/bar/venue in Orlando, Fla., is now hiring in preparation for “an early summer opening,” according to a press release.

Ole Red Orlando was scheduled to open on April 14. However, the COVID-19 pandemic put a damper on the plans for the grand opening.

Located at the ICON Park development, the planned $15-million Ole Red Orlando project will offer 17,000-square-feet over two levels and will seat approximately 500 guests. The venue will feature live music as well as indoor and outdoor private event areas and a view of The Wheel, one of the world’s largest observation wheels.

Blake is once again teaming with Ryman Hospitality Properties for the Orlando project. Blake and Ryman Hospitality have already opened Ole Red locations in Tishomingo, Okla. (September 2017), Nashville (May 2018) and Gatlinburg (March 2019).

“We’ve brought Ole Red to some of my favorite places, and I’m excited to have another spot for country music fans to have fun with their friends and family,” said Blake. “I think it’s impossible to visit Orlando and not have a good time, and that’s why I know Ole Red is going to fit right in.”

Ole Red Orlando is now hiring for select positions.
