About my venture
TailGate Outdoor Sports Bar Started 2021
A few months into the COVID-19 pandemic, Jarrod Fox and Taylor Lintz decided they wanted to bring back the joy of entertainment their community was lacking. With inspiration from an outdoor movie theater, Jarrod figured if people can get together and socially distance themselves to watch a movie, he could find a way to do the same with a bar. His idea, TailGate Outdoor Sports Bar, grew larger as he approached a few venues with the concept. Taylor quit her full-time day job to take over operations and help invest in the bar, and the rest is history.
TailGate Outdoor Sports Bar was made with COVID-19 in mind to create a one-of-a-kind bar and entertainment experience. Each table fits up to 10 guests, has its own heater when needed, 65” TV, QR Code for contactless food and beverage orders, and hand sanitizing station. Parties sit 7-8 feet apart or have plexiglass to keep a safe distance while enjoying live music, sports, food, and drinks.
Jarrod and Taylor have created an emphasis on being inclusive: whether it be a drag show or football game, TailGate is dedicated to hosting many fun events for all to enjoy. As said best by Jarrod and Taylor, “Tailgate is an entertainment venue first and sports bar second”.
The two have been dating for about 2 years and have a brand new puppy named Koda, who you will see running around the bar. If you see her, please give her belly rubs, she loves them! And feel free to bring your dogs as well, the bar is called TailGate for a reason!
Countries of operation: United Kingdom, United States of America
