Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes are opening a steakhouse together

Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes have announced they are entering the restaurant business together.

On Thursday 14 March, the back-to-back Super Bowl winners revealed they will be teaming up to open an upscale steakhouse in Kansas City, Missouri.

The football players are naming their restaurant 1587 Prime, in honour of both their jersey numbers. The restaurant is scheduled to open in the Loew’s Hotel Kansas City in early 2025. In order to build their restaurant, the pair will be teaming up with global hospitality group Noble 33.

The company’s other notable eateries include Toca Madera, Casa Madera, Sparrow Italia, and Meduza Mediterrania, with locations in Los Angeles, Scottsdale, Las Vegas, New York, Toronto, and London. Additional restaurants are slated to open in Miami and Houston in the coming months.

“Working with Patrick and Travis has been incredible. As longtime supporters of our other restaurants, we worked together to combine their favourite elements of those experiences into what we developed for 1587 Prime,” Tosh Berman, co-founder of Noble 33, told Good Morning America. “They are natural hosts and can’t wait to bring a unique modern American steakhouse experience to Kansas City.”

The group told the outlet that the current plan for the steakhouse will span nearly 10,000 square feet across two floors and will feature "hyper-subtle nods to Patrick and Travis’ on-field accomplishments.”

“Travis and I have become frequent visitors of Noble 33 restaurants in other cities so it only made sense to bring something special to our own community in Kansas City,” Mahomes said in a statement. “We’re excited to be a part of this journey with Noble 33 to create a one-of-a-kind dining experience, and what better place to start than our very own, Kansas City,” Kelce added.

The Independent has contacted Noble 33 for comment.

The news comes after Kelce visited his girlfriend, Taylor Swift, during her Eras Tour in both Australia and Singapore. On 23 February, Travis took a trip to visit his pop star girlfriend as she performed in Sydney for the Australian leg of her world tour. In a recent episode of his podcast New Heights, the 34-year-old NFL player told his co-host and older brother Jason Kelce all about his most recent adventure down under.

“Trav what the hell is your life right now?” Jason asked about his brother’s trip.

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end replied: “Lotta false media being tossed out there, but I’ll tell you what wasn’t false: when I landed in Australia and seeing all the cameras.”

The couple were spotted sightseeing at the Sydney Zoo, in footage obtained by Australia’s Channel 9 News, and could be seen holding hands as they were given a private tour of the park. Throughout their date, they hand-fed some of the kangaroos and met some koalas. They were reportedly joined by some of the singer’s backup dancers. Travis noted that throughout their entire zoo date, they were being followed by paparazzi in helicopters.

“There were full-on helicopters just flying around,” he revealed. “They helicoptered us. Well, not us, Taylor. This is all because Taylor is the biggest and the best thing possible.”
