"Daddy O" Does It Again: Successful Entrepreneur Opens One-of-a-Kind Addition to Harlem's Refined Social Scene, Despite Economic Downturn

HARLEM, NY--(Marketwire - November 18, 2008) - Owner O'Dell "Daddy O" Holland is preparing for the V.I.P. Grand Opening of his newest venture, OH Restaurant, Lounge and Private Club, on November 20th from 7-10pm. In association with local businesses, OH will welcome an exclusive group of VIP's, business owners, executives, professionals and select media to its newly renovated four story brownstone location at 458 West 145th Street in the legendary Sugar Hill section of Harlem. Guests will enjoy bite-sized menu options, a champagne toast and the unveiling of OH's Club House, Harlem's new, highly anticipated member's only club. OH's Restaurant, Lounge and Private Club will not only be a hotspot for dining, lounging and entertainment in Harlem, but it will also be a place where businesses, owners and professionals can host and attend events that promote urban commerce and progression. During an economic downturn when many businesses are failing, OH will focus on building strategic alliances with other establishments to expand market penetration and allow cross promotion.

Head Chef, Emilio Drake, defines OH's cuisine as "comfort food with a twist." A variety of savory fare made with high-quality ingredients such as shrimp sautéed with champagne, shallots, and fresh herbs, southern fried chicken marinated in buttermilk and macaroni and cheese made with mozzarella, parmesan and asiago, will uniquely distinguish OH's menu from other Harlem restaurants. Preferred customers will be offered membership to OH's Clubhouse, where they can enjoy a private bar and wait staff, high-tech entertainment and video equipment, a cigar terrace, exclusive member's only events, offers and more.

About O'Dell "Daddy O" Holland: O'Dell Holland started the night life on the Lower East Side and in Central Harlem, displaying a track for entrepreneurial ingenuity in places where others thought impossible. Ten years ago he opened the renowned Sugar Shack, an upscale bar, restaurant and lounge in West Harlem. "That was before the Harlem Renaissance and folks thought I was insane". Now, at a time when many are fearful, O'Dell Holland is preparing for greatness.

A Media Hour will be held from 5:30-6:30pm November 20th. We invite the media to come enjoy complimentary dishes, signature drinks and get an exclusive first look at OH.
