After months in development, a restaurant and motorcycle museum co-owned by American Chopper star Paul Teutul Sr. will open next week in Pinellas Park.
OCC Road House and Museum will hold its grand opening weekend June 25-27 at 10575 49th St N, next to Bert’s Barracuda Harley-Davidson, near the borders of Clearwater and St. Petersburg. The first night will feature a ticketed concert by country star David Lee Murphy, and the second two days will be open to the public.
The $7 million, 9.5-acre compound is a joint venture between Teutul and Keith Overton, the longtime 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 customers, and a 25,000-square-foot concert pavilion outside. Other features include pool tables, shuffleboard, darts and a gift shop.
The museum will feature pieces from Teutul’s collection of motorcycle memorabilia, including from his years on the hit Discovery Channel reality show American Chopper, set at his family’s New York motorcycle shop Orange County Choppers. It’ll also feature a “patch wall” featuring Teutul’s collection of tens of thousands of military and first responder patches from around the world.
“I kept every piece of memorabilia over the last 20 years, the original sign when we first opened a motorcycle business, everything you could possibly think of,” Teutul told the Tampa Bay Times in December.
General admission tickets to the June 25 concert are $20. The next two days will feature live music and tours of the museum and Bert’s Barracuda Harley-Davidson.
