Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge is getting an NFL Draft makeover.
The vibrant purple wall on the west side of the famed honky-tonk, which faces 5th Avenue, has been transformed with new art this week. Lower Broad is, after all, the epicenter of quickly-approaching “Draftville.”
Don’t worry, the lilac hue is remaining, but a street artist added portraits of NFL Draft prospects.
Muralist Bryan Deese started with a stylized mural of Kyler Murray on sunny Tuesday afternoon, and space for another mural had already been blocked off.
Two more portraits have been added to the wall of Honky Tonk Central across the street, for a total of four of the murals in the area.
