Bill Murray is opening a bar-restaurant based on cult classic Caddyshack, so he’s got that going for him, which is nice.
According to the Daily Herald, the legendary 66-year-old comedian intends to open the bar in Rosemont, Chicago along with his five brothers Andy, John, Brian, Joel, and Ed, collectively known as the Murray Group.
Rosemont Mayor Brad Stephens told the site the family has made a “verbal agreement” to rent an 11,000-square-foot facility in the town’s Crowne Plaza hotel. A written agreement is reportedly on the way.
Each brother will play a specific role in the business’ leadership, with Andy cooking, Ed handling finances, and Bill, Brian, Joel and John creating buzz as the actors in the family.
The Rosemont bar would be the crew’s second establishment, following the opening of Murray Bros. Caddyshack in St. Augustine, Florida, in 2001.
Murray played Carl Spackler in the 1980 hit after brother Brian wrote the script. The film was based on the brothers’ childhoods working as golf caddies.
If present plans go through, the restaurant will open in the summer of 2017.
