Tom's Watch Bar Coming To International Drive Later This Year

Updated: Mar 13, 2022

Tom’s Watch Bar, a high-end sports bar concept from Smashburger founder Tom Ryan, is the first occupant of the top-floor space at the Hollywood Plaza entertainment complex and garage on International Drive.

The new sports bar, which already has locations in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Washington D.C. and Denver, could be open as soon as late 2022.

The space includes a rooftop patio area, ample parking and unobstructed visibility from Interstate 4.

The soon-to-open Orlando site is going to be unique. Owner Tom Ryan commented “It’s 10 stories above International Drive, so it’s got great views of Disney, great views of Universal at night. We love outdoor seating and bars, so we’re going to light up the top of that structure and make it a beacon for everybody.”

The new Tom's Watch Bar will feature Top Golf simulators and several other entertainment features, and its calendar, once open, will feature a variety of watch parties and events.

The menu in the new sports bar will include traditional sports bar staples such as burgers and wings but also sushi-grade tuna towers and poke bowls.

Ryan said “We do consider ourselves an entertainment-based concept versus just a bar and restaurant that shows sport.”

This sounds life a great addition to International Drive, and we cannot wait to try it once it opens!
