On Friday, actor, producer and TV host Nick Cannon cut the ribbon of a new San Diego eatery, Wild’n Out Sports Bar.

The massive-sized sports bar, which is inspired by the long-running MTV/VH1 show Wild’n Out, features an indoor/outdoor experience with food, drinks and an arcade.

Cannon posted an almost two-minute video on his Instagram page that features footage of him cutting the red ribbon outside of the restaurant and giving viewers a glimpse of the inside.

“It’s a beautiful opportunity to be able to open this up and to have people come out from the community and show love and to have the people that I came up with support a brand that I created,” Cannon said in the video.

On grand opening day, visitors were welcome to stop by and “enjoy mouth-watering burgers, tasty cocktails, and good vibes.” There also were opportunities to win a gift card and meet a few of the famous Wild’n Out girls.

“It’s homegrown,” Cannon said. “[It’s great] to be able to be homegrown, to bring that same fun and energy that we bring on television each and every night to a place where they feel they can feel safe and come and have a good time.”

Season 17 of Wild’n Out, hosted by Nick Cannon, kicked off last week on VH1.
