Caravan Hospitality Group: Long-time vacant bar space redefined in time for March Madness

MILWAUKEE (Feb. 2, 2018) – Mike Eitel, Caravan Hospitality Group CEO, restaurant veteran and entrepreneur, announced today the opening of his newest establishment, SportClub at 750 N. Jefferson Street in Milwaukee. SportClub joins the growing entertainment group’s lineup that includes Nomad World Pub in Milwaukee and Madison as well as Panga Bar and Grill in Lake Country and coming later this spring, Nomad Nacional, a pop-up bar that will take over the former La Fuente Restaurant on 5th Street and will host Eitel’s last World Cup “Fanzone” for a month starting in mid-June.

SportClub will open at the end of February, in time for March Madness and will have a classic, 1950’s varsity feel with a few whimsical twists. Serving mostly handheld street food – from domestic favorites to an eclectic array of global items – SportClub will offer lunch, dinner, and weekend breakfast as well as “takeaway service” from order/pickup windows at a concession stand for lunch, happy hour, and late night carryout.

SportClub also takes its drink list quite seriously with 30 beers on tap, a lengthy list of champagnes, a mimosa menu, as well as craft cocktails – all inspired to help celebrate what Eitel calls “the sport of celebration.” SportClub will also feature a private space called The Boot Room, which can be reserved for groups of up to 30 people for private events or to watch their favorite teams on three screens with their own private bar. The entertainment venue will exceed 5,400 square feet plus a patio and sidewalk cafe, both of which will open later this year.

“SportClub is unlike any other sports bar I’ve ever been to,” Eitel says. “Regardless of your sport preference, or whether you even care for sports at all, there will be something for everyone at SportClub.” “The décor will honor those who support the teams and players – the fans, the cheerleaders, even the referees, and coaches. And, in celebration of the celebration of sport, the champagne will flow freely,” he adds.
