About Patrick Clay's
Welcome to Patrick Clay's Icon Tavern, more than just a sports bar, but a legacy brought to life in the heart of Downtown Odessa. The tavern is named in honor of Patrick Clay Rodriguez, a brother, friend, and dreamer whose unwavering love for his city and passion for sports culminated in the conception of this remarkable place.
Our story is deeply rooted in the spirit of camaraderie and shared aspirations. Patrick and his brother, Shawn Rodriguez, invited their good friend Bradley Marquez, a former NFL receiver and Odessa High Bronchos star athlete, to join them in this venture in 2019. The dream was set in motion, but tragically, Patrick passed away in 2020 due to complications of COVID-19. However, his vision did not fade; instead, it drove Shawn and Marquez to bring his dream to fruition.
Patrick Clay's Icon Tavern is a testament to Patrick's dream and his enduring love for Odessa. It is where sports, community, and history merge, promising a unique and memorable experience to all its patrons. As a tribute to our homegrown origins and the area's rich sports tradition, the tavern showcases iconic moments in sports history and highlights the achievements of local athletes.
Step inside and find a dynamic venue catering to sports enthusiasts. Two entertainment floors include a stage for a DJ or stand-up comedian, a VIP section, and space to host local sporting events. From boxing to MMA, there's a sport for every fan, and of course, good drinks and fantastic food to enjoy while you watch.
In Patrick's memory, we've reserved a permanent seat for him, a poignant reminder of the dream that started it all. Through this gesture, his name continues to live on, and his spirit remains forever intertwined with the tavern's history and future.
