As part of its commitment to "All Thrill," San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino have partnered with legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS, famed restauranteur/hotelier Michael Zislis, and concert industry veterans Dave and Dell Furano to introduce a first-of-its-kind Rock & Brews restaurant at the casino.
Slated to open in October 2016, the 225 seat, 5,500 square foot Rock & Brews promises to immerse guests in a multi-sensory rock and roll dining and entertainment experience like none other. The atmosphere in the restaurant will literally change with every song as it chronicles nearly seven decades of rock history through rare and unseen photographs and video footage. More than 1,000 songs - from Elvis to Nirvana - will be presented with high definition, state-of-the-art Technomedia special effects, including LED light panels on the ceiling and the walls inside and outside of the restaurant.
San Manuel Band of Mission Indians Chairwoman Lynn Valbuena said, "The addition of Rock and Brews to San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino is yet another step in our journey to provide the very best food and entertainment venues in Southern California."
The San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino location is the first casino location for Rock & Brews, and the brand's ninth restaurant in California and 19(th) in the United States and Mexico.
"We are very excited that the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians has invited us to become a part of their thriving casino and its continued efforts to provide guests with quality dining and entertainment options," said Stanley and Simmons in a joint statement. "We are confident that guests from near and far will find this exciting, new, state-of-the-art Rock & Brews experience to be a delicious and enjoyable part of their casino visit."
The new Rock & Brews will feature affordable, quality American comfort foods prepared with superior, locally-sourced, fresh ingredients, including a broad selection of appetizers, salads, pizzas, burgers, entrees, and desserts prepared to the brand's precise quality standards. The full bar, which will serve both the restaurant and the adjacent casino, will highlight more than 35 craft and international beers, with an emphasis on local craft brewers.
"We are really bringing All Thrill to a whole new level!" stated San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino general manager, Loren Gill. "In the last 18 months we have renovated several areas of our facility and improved our service levels in our on-going pursuit to provide the very best casino entertainment in the region. The recent renovation of The Pines Modern Steakhouse, along with the addition of Rock & Brews makes San Manuel an even more exciting dining destination."
Rock & Brews will also feature live performances on an integrated stage, along with a full calendar of special events. Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase t-shirts and other great Rock & Brews merchandise.
Grand opening activities hosted by Stanley and Simmons will take place prior to the end of the year benefitting veterans and active military.
