Paul Teutul Sr.’s Pinellas Park ‘American Chopper’ restaurant opens next week
After months of development, a restaurant and motorcycle museum owned by American Chopper star Paul Teutul Sr. will open next week in Pinellas Park.
The OCC Road House and Museum will be holding its Grand Opening Weekend June 25-27 at 10575 49th St N, next to Bert’s Barracuda Harley-Davidson, near the Clearwater and St. Petersburg borders. The first night will feature a paid concert by country star David Lee Murphy, and the following two days will be open to the public.
The $ 7 million, 9.5-acre resort is a joint venture between Teutul and Keith Overton, the long-time former president of TradeWinds Island Resort in St. Pete Beach. The American grill-style restaurant will have 11,000 square feet inside, with seating for 370 patrons, and a 25,000 square foot concert pavilion outside. Other features include pool tables, shuffleboard, darts, and a gift shop.
The museum will showcase pieces from Teutul’s motorcycle memorabilia collection, including his years on the hit reality show Discovery Channel American chopper, located in his family’s California motorcycle store, Orange County Choppers. It will also feature a “patch wall” showcasing Teutul’s collection of tens of thousands of military and first responder patches from around the world.
“I have kept every piece of memories for the past 20 years, the original sign when we first opened a motorcycle business, whatever you can think of,” Teutul told the Tampa Bay weather in December.
General admission tickets for the June 25 concert are $ 20. The next two days will include live music and tours of the museum and the Bert’s Barracuda Harley-Davidson.
