Gene Simmons, lead singer and restauranteur
Rock and roll will never die, it'll just open a theme restaurant.
While celebrity restaurants are nothing new in L.A. and theme restaurants are even more of a presence, most people don't think to make the celebrity the theme.
But most people (obviously) aren't Gene Simmons.
The rock legend is putting his personal vision behind “Rock and Brews," a patio restaurant he hopes will make you feel like you’re backstage at a concert.
“Rock and Brews” will feature “Opening Act” appetizers, “VIP” salads, “Headliner” sandwiches, “Front Row” pizza and “Encore” desserts — all of it served up in a space chock-full of big screen monitors blaring concert footage.
Rock and Brews also boasts dog-friendly eminities, and a children's play area. (Face-painting, perhaps?)
If this catches on in El Segundo, Simmons plans to roll out more restaurants nationwide.
