It won't be long before Sammy Hagar has rock star company in Mexico. Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS -- who are partners in the Rock & Brews restaurant venture -- are opening a Rock & Brews location in San Jose del Cabo, just next door to Cabo San Lucas, home of Hagar's Cabo Wabo Cantina.
Rock & Brews combines casual dining and a craft beer selection with the experience of being backstage at a rock concert. The flagship venue opened last year in El Segundo, California, just south of Los Angeles International Airport, and after the Mexican location the company plans outposts in Southern California, LAX airport, Paia [pah-EE-ah], Hawaii and Kansas City. Highlights of the restaurants include "The Great Wall of Rock," where posters, album covers and other pieces of rock music-related art will be displayed. Rock & Brews also will feature flat-screen TVs and a high-fidelity sound system on which a variety of classic live performances will be played.
Gene Simmons has been a partner in the venture from the beginning, along with L.A. restaurateur Michael Zislis and veteran concert promoter Dave Furano. Paul Stanley is a recent addition to the business side and will join his bandmate in Mexico for the location's grand opening events on March 22nd and 23rd.
As you might imagine, there's ample opportunity for KISS fans to spend money at the events. The grand opening party will be held at the Hacienda Del Mar Golf & Spa Resort and fans can purchase a special VIP package that includes a two-night stay, breakfast buffet, two tickets to the Rock & Brew grand opening event, meet-and-greet and photo opportunities with Simmons and Stanley, and a Rock & Brews San Jose del Cabo t-shirt.
