KISS' Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley to Open Restaurant in Dallas Suburb

By Christian McPhate / Dallas Observer

The members of KISS have done just about all there is to do in rock 'n' roll. After selling millions of records thanks to hit songs like "Detroit Rock City," Rock 'N' Roll All Nite" and "I Was Made for Lovin' You" over the past 40 years, the band was finally inducted into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. So it's no surprise that they're looking for a new challenge at this stage in their careers.

Now KISS members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are doing just that as they plan to open a Rock & Brews restaurant in North Texas early next year. It's just one of nearly a dozen Rock & Brews located across the U.S.

“This is not a KISS restaurant,” Stanley says in a phone interview. “It doesn't need a KISS. It's a great eating and drinking establishment.”

Rock & Brews is a family friendly, rock-inspired restaurant that celebrates classic rock, good food and a family environment. It's dog friendly and offers a patio and a play area for children. It's a place where parents can spend quality time with each other or friends but not compromise their personal tastes by eating crappy mac-and-cheese, Stanley says.


Paul Stanley Says KISS Teaming Up with Scooby-Doo for New Animated Film "Seemed Very Natural"

A new feature animated film titled Scooby-Doo! and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery was released Friday on DVD and Blu-ray.  Some KISS fans may feel that pairing the famous rockers with the cartoon canine seems a bit odd, but band members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons beg to differ.

“KISS is iconic.  Scooby-Doo is iconic.  KISS is iconic in the same way that Batman or Superman are, so to take two worlds and combine ’em together allows both to be true to themselves,” Stanley tells ABC Radio.

The singer/guitarist adds, “I mean, we’re a rock band, but we’re way more than a rock band.  Rock bands are so pigeonholed and so afraid to walk outside of their comfort zone.  KISS isn’t like that, so for us this was something that seemed very natural.”



Last year, Paul Stanley had an amazing time with fans during his private Q&A event aboard KISS Kruise IV. This year, Paul has decided to up the ante for KISS Kruise V, and boy, has he ever!

Get up close and personal with Paul in this exclusive Paul Stanley Collectors' Club performance. This intimate event is limited to buyers of Paul Stanley's KISS Kruise V guitars and microphones and the buyer's ONE guest. (Parents with minor children are welcome to bring their children too.)
