A long line of KISS fans wrapped around Rock & Brews, waiting to meet Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. The two celebrities were hanging out on Tuesday in The Colony for a meet and greet and charity event for the grand opening of their suburban Dallas restaurant.
Rock & Brews is a music-themed restaurant located very close to Nebraska Furniture Mart in The Colony. The Grandscape development is a $1.5 billion project spanning more than 400 acres.
Rock & Brews' star power is Simmons and Stanley, who proudly say the restaurant has a fun vibe and good food. "There are 10 items for under $10, available in 10 minutes," Simmons said in a March interview with The Dallas Morning News. "The reason all of our Rock & Brews are always packed is because people love them."
The musicians and their partners picked The Colony as the location for the first free-standing Rock & Brews in Texas.
The restaurant has a patio with bar games such as shuffle board and a cavernous interior with murals of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Janis Joplin and Willie Nelson, among others.
At a private event on Tuesday, May 10, Simmons and Stanley greeted veterans and raised money for Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas.
"I've been rocking to them since I was 6 years old," says Ari Lopez, one of the attendees.
Rock & Brews is located at 5351 Nebraska Furniture Mart Drive in The Colony. Details here.
