    From NBCUniversal themselves [Media Village]

    Compared to this and Toothsome, I would've perfered the latter, but I know there's an audience for this that will eat it up.

    As long as it has some unique brews for Hollywood, I'm good.

    Confirmed with Universal - NBC Sports Grill & Brew will replace Tony Roma's.

    Wait, so it's not replacing Howls? That's actually a shock.

    Interested to know now what's replacing Howl at The Moon, unless if it's going to be incorporated with Tony Romas for Grill Brew to retain a multi-level nature.

    Guess we can forever kiss Toothsome dreams goodbye?

    I think you on to something. I was told now that howling is gone the move was to remove TR with a multi level restaurant.

    I have no interest in sports bars, but I can admit there's likely an audience for it, and I'm sure it'll be popular. But not really anything I'm very interested in.

    Oddly, I think this gives us a bit more hope of Toothsome coming eventually... it's pretty clear they're trying to duplicate successful brands from Orlando that they own.

    I have no serious sources, but wasn't it discussed pretty openly that Hard Rock's lease was expiring at the end of the year?

    Considering the fact it's the center peice of Beijing's CityWalk i'm going to say no. I think they're waiting for a specific lease to go up.

    Shocked Toothsome is not coming yet. Of all the stuff to clone from East to West, I'd have thought Toothsome the most successful. But they want to promote the NBC brand I guess...

    "With a complement of over 100 HD TV screens"

    Oh no! More SCREEENZZZ coming! :freak: Kidding aside, I think they'd need to make this 2-story to accommodate that many TVs.

    Again, I'm guessing they're waiting for a specific location for Toothsome that would be a better fit.

    I mean, it hasn't been like Toothsome hasn't been rumored for USH's Citywalk for a while.

    I'd agree with @Rideguy70 and @k_peek_2000 that it's probably a manner of them merely just waiting for a certain location to give up leasing.

    It wouldn't surprise me if that's the case, as it should be relatively simple to gut both of them due to their location and footing.

    Personally, I'm curious if we'll see a massive inward-curved screen for our version of Grill Brew, as opposed to Orlando's outward curved LED.

    Two story makes sense based on the footprint of Orlando I’m just now sure how possible it is in Hollywood in that specific location. Makes a lot of sense however with both locations (Tony and howl) on the way out

    Hell, even then they'll probably have some extra to spare. Wouldn't be surprised if they put TVs in the bathroom, can't miss a moment of the action! :nana:
