New Rock-Inspired Restaurant to Open in Lee Vista Promenade
MANHATTAN BEACH, CALIF. (January 30, 2017) — KISS front men Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons announced today that they will expand their family-friendly Rock & Brews restaurant and entertainment brand in the Orlando, Florida area, with plans to open a second location in Lee Vista in April. The first location opened in 2014 in Oviedo.
Working in partnership with their multi-unit franchise partners, Scott Paul and Kris Maronpot of R&B Florida, LLC, the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers recently began construction of the new Rock & Brews located in the Lee Vista Promenade shopping center on Semoran Blvd., just north of Orlando International Airport.
The restaurant will feature the brand’s signature quality American food with a fresh California twist and two full bars with one of the area’s largest selections of international and craft beers. The rock-inspired environment will include multiple flat screens sharing concert-style rock videos and sporting events; and, rock artwork, including a Great Wall of Rock featuring iconic rock and roll legends. Both indoor and al fresco dining will be available. And, with something for everyone, Rock & Brews will offer lively dog friendly patio areas with fire pits, couches, games such as a bean bag toss and giant Jenga, and live music on weekend nights.
“We are very excited to work with Paul and Gene to build another Rock & Brews in Florida,” said Scott Paul, R&B Florida franchise partner. “We are dedicated to providing a quality dining experience and a welcoming environment for families, with something exciting for rockers of all ages.”
Rock & Brews in Lee Vista Promenade will introduce more than 200 new full and part-time jobs for restaurant employees and dozens of construction jobs. This is the fourth Rock & Brews for Scott Paul and his partners, who are looking for additional locations in Florida.
A fundraising event hosted by Stanley and Simmons will take place this summer, benefiting local veterans and active military. For information about Rock & Brews, visit www.rockandbrews.com.
