KISS founders to open Rock & Brews in Oklahoma City

Fans of the rock band KISS will have a place to gather and "Shout It Out Loud" when Rock & Brews opens near Quail Springs Mall this fall.

"When you wrap your lips around one our Godzilla-sized burgers, and that's not easy to do, or one of our gluten-free pizzas or regular pizza, you're going to have a hard time going anywhere else," Simmons said.

Simmons is particularly fond of laying one of the concept's signature beignets across his notoriously long tongue.

"It's a crispy little pastry about the size of a snowball, covered in powdered sugar and drizzled with raspberry sauce, and when you bite into it and your mouth is filled with chocolate sauce, it’s a good as sex," Simmons said.

But Simmons said the experience is about more than food.

"You don't have to go to a restaurant to eat; you can eat at home," he said. "You want the whole experience. We're all social, all of us. You want to meet with friends or go on a date. It's about the vibe. When you’re walking into Rock & Brews you see classic rock, photos, videos, music playing. Music is all over the place. The stuff that you love — no Flock of Seagulls, no Men in Hats. I don't say that disparagingly. I say it as a statement of fact: You won't hear those bands at Rock & Brews." Simmons said you will hear Rush, AC/DC, Bon Jovi and "maybe a little KISS."

He made it clear you never know what you might see.
