Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS are planning to open restaurant in Rancho Cucamonga
KISS front men Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, along with co-founding partners Michael Zislis and concert industry veterans Dave and Dell Furano, announced recently that their family-friendly, rock-inspired Rock & Brews restaurant brand will be expanding to Rancho Cucamonga in the fall of this year.
The restaurant will be the brand’s eighth in California and 17th overall.
Rock & Brews Rancho Cucamonga will be the brand’s first in San Bernardino County. Located across from the Victoria Gardens shopping center, the restaurant is developed in partnership with local franchise partner Jon Mesko, who also owns and operates Rock & Brews restaurants in Buena Park, Corona and Redondo Beach.
The 9,900 square foot location will feature a full bar and a wide selection of more than 100 craft and international beers in addition to the brand’s American comfort food.
Children and dogs are welcome: the restaurant features a play structure for kids and a dog-friendly patio with a fire pit area. Adults can enjoy games as well, including bean bag toss and life-sized Jenga.
More than 25 flat screens will play concert-style rock videos and live sporting events in the rock-inspired atmosphere, with concert lighting and rock artwork, including a Great Wall of Rock that pays tribute to music legends.
“We are excited to join the Rancho Cucamonga community,” said Mesko. “Our largest restaurant yet is sure to provide our guests with a memorable rock-inspired dining experience that keeps them coming back again and again.”
Grand opening activities hosted by Stanley and Simmons will take place in the fall and will benefit veterans and active military members.
Stanley and Simmons are founding members of KISS, a popular rock band which has sold more than 100 million records worldwide since forming in 1973. KISS has performed in the Inland Empire several times, including an appearance at the Epicenter concert at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana in 2010.
