Dierks Bentley to Open Whiskey Row Restaurant in Las Vegas
The eatery, which will open in July of 2016 on the Las Vegas Strip, is part of a new, bustling retail and dining district, the Park, that will span eight acres. Bentley's Whiskey Row, which serves "American Gastropub Fare-type cuisine with a modern twist," includes items such as Grilled Whiskey Wings, a Whiskey Burger and Alabama BBQ Grilled Chicken, along with a wide variety of whiskey and other alcoholic beverages, on its menu.
Bentley's other Whiskey Row locations are in Illinois, in Chicago, and his home state of Arizona, in both Tempe and Scottsdale.
“Opening a bar in my hometown is something I’ve always wanted to do,” explains Bentley (quote via Music News Nashville). “These guys have spent a lot of time and put a lot of thought into really cool details that will make it the perfect place to watch a game or listen to music or just get a few drinks with friends."
Bentley is currently crossing the country on his 2015 Sounds of Summer Tour, which he says, appropriately enough related to this new restaurant news, began in his kitchen.
“It really starts with me and Dan, my fiddle player. He and I sit down in my kitchen, [with] a couple guitars [and] last year’s setlist, and just start breaking it down," Bentley says. “We really try to make it about the music first and foremost. We need to do something that makes it exciting for us to play some of these songs every year."
A list of all of Bentley's upcoming shows is available on his website.
