NBC Sports Grill & Brew is on the way to Universal Studios Hollywood! Opening in 2020, this restaurant will hope to capture the same magic as its’ Orlando sister location. This sports bar Originally opened at CityWalk Orlando back in 2015 and still operates today.

The park describes this new restaurant as “designed to reflect the excellence and excitement of NBC Sports’ award-winning coverage. This will have a fresh take on pub menus and a stellar selection of regional and exclusive draft brews. With a complement of over 100 HD TV screens, broadcasting favorite sporting events, live stream sports content and in-depth sports coverage, NBC Sports Grill & Brew will offer guests the MVP treatment with the best seats in the house.”

With Howl at the Moon also set to close this month at CityWalk Hollywood, you have to wonder if these announcements are related. This new restaurant is currently slated to take the location of Tony Roma’s but you have to take notice that Howl at the Moon is located immediately above Tony Roma’s.

NBC Sports Grill & Brew is a very large restaurant in Orlando. The Sports Bar features a large screen on the outside and plenty more tv’s on the inside. This is a big restaurant! With both Howl at the Moon and Tony Roma’s closing, you have to wonder if this new Sports Bar will be two stories tall and occupy the current space of both offerings.

We will reach out to Universal to see if we can receive confirmation that the Hollywood version of this restaurant will occupy the entire space. For now, just assume that this new offering will be in the spot currently occupied by Tony Roma’s!
