US – Potawatomi Hotel & Casino starts build on Rock & BrewsBy Phil - 13 May 2022
Potawatomi Hotel & Casino leaders alongside legendary musicians Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS broke ground on the new Rock & Brews; the newest location of the music icons’ restaurant and part of a new look for Potawatomi.
“It’s a thrill to partner with these music legends by bringing a fantastic dining experience and truly unique new venue to our guests at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino and the people of Milwaukee,” Potawatomi Hotel & Casino CEO and General Manager Dominic Ortiz said.
The restaurant, which will be located just past the skywalk entrance on the third floor, will feature seating for more than 200 guests. It will also have a double-sided bar with gaming machines and a stage for live music. There will also be a private dining room for parties and events.
“The culture in Milwaukee is a perfect fit for a new Rock & Brews Restaurant,” said Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons in a joint statement. “We are excited that the groundbreaking ceremony falls on the date of our End of the Road Tour concert in Milwaukee. We didn’t want to miss this.”
As the name suggests, “Rock & Brews” is a restaurant that “provides a superior dining experience with a Rock ‘n’ Roll twist.” Guests can enjoy great music while they dine; and there will be screens throughout the restaurant playing rock concerts in addition to amazing art and décor from some of music’s biggest names.
The menu is described as “American classics with a twist,” and includes burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, and more. As for the brews? There will be 52 beers on tap featuring some of Brew City’s finest.
“Rock & Brews” is expected to be open by September of this year. It’s part of a $100m renovation project announced this week that will revolutionize the casino’s third floor and usher in the next era of entertainment to Milwaukee. The project includes more than 120,000 square feet of space for new gaming, food, and entertainment experiences.
