Johnny Manziel opening up bar near Texas A&M’s campus: ‘Coming soon’

College Station is going to have a bit more Johnny Manziel in the neighborhood again.

But the quarterback’s not coming back for football.

In a post on his Instagram story on Wednesday, the former Aggies quarterback announced he’s opening up a bar in the Northgate district, which is a mere minutes’ walk away from the Texas A&M campus.

“Always wanted my own shot bar on Northgate,” his post read. “Coming soon,” he added at the bottom.

The bar, which will be called “Johnny Manziel’s Money Bar,” is set to open in Fall 2023, according to the bar’s Instagram page.

No menu or extensive details are listed yet, but the website says the bar will be open until 2 a.m. and the Instagram page calls the location as “College Station’s favorite party bar.”

Manziel threw for 7,820 yards and 63 touchdowns over his two years at College Station, which led to a Heisman trophy, a No. 22 overall draft selection in 2014 and the phenomenon of “Johnny Football” taking over the country.

The once-hyped prospect flamed out of the NFL, though, as problems related to alcohol, speeding and an alleged assault contributed to the end of his professional football career after just eight starts with the Browns.

Manziel’s downfall is set to be featured in an upcoming Netflix documentary titled “Untold,” which will peel back the curtain on the quarterback’s troubled NFL career.

“I thought I played better the harder I partied,” Manziel said in the trailer. “19-year-old kid, having 100 grand stuffed under your bed, it was awesome.”
