Kiss stars Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are expanding their bar venture by opening a new Rock & Brews restaurant in Torrance, California next month (May13).

The first Rock & Brews restaurant opened in El Segundo, California a year ago (04Apr12), and now plans are in place for another venue by the side of the fabled Pacific Coast Highway.

Partner Stanley says, "We continue to expand Rock & Brews worldwide with a commitment to building a family-friendly atmosphere that serves exceptional food along with a broad selection of craft beers."

There are plans for another four Rock & Brews restaurants in development, including one in Hawaii and another housed at the Lax airport in Los Angeles - both will open later this year (13). The first international joint opened in Los Cabos, Mexico last month (Mar13).

Stanley and Simmons will open their latest bar/restaurant on 8 May (13).
