Rock & Brews Opens at Potawatomi Casino Hotel in Milwaukee

The Forrest County Potawatomi Community has partnered with Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS and their rock-inspired restaurant group, Rock & Brews, to bring their nationally recognized restaurant concept and live music to the state of Wisconsin.

The first Rock & Brews Restaurant in Wisconsin opened on August 1 at the Potawatomi Casino Hotel in Milwaukee. The 250-seat restaurant was an integral aspect of the property’s extensive $190 million renovation. Following the opening, the celebrations traveled to Carter, where the Potawatomi Casino Hotel Carter and Rock & Brews hosted an outdoor concert series and pop-up beer garden featuring artists such as Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts and Jefferson Starship.

On September 1, the Forrest County Potawatomi and Rock & Brews teams will further their partnership with a full day of programming that will have Wisconsinites feeling the ‘rock and roll all night,’ beginning with the groundbreaking for their restaurant within Potawatomi Casino Hotel Carter. At 11:30 a.m. Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons will participate in the inaugural demolition of the 5,280 square foot restaurant. Later that evening, the duo will join their bandmates to perform at Crandon International Raceway as part of KISS’ End of the Road Tour.

“We are ecstatic to bring these rock ‘n’ roll legends, and their outstanding dining concept, to Wisconsin,” says Dominic Ortiz, CEO of Potawatomi Casinos and Hotels. “Their presence at our casino in Milwaukee has been electrifying and we know they will bring the same energy to Carter.”

Potawatomi Casino Hotel Carter features 400+ slot and video machines, high stakes bingo, two restaurants, conference space and live entertainment. The property boasts 98 guest rooms, RV parking spaces, and an indoor pool, sauna and whirlpool. The Rock & Brews restaurant will feature a live band stage with 15 TVs, including the largest LED screen in northern Wisconsin. A stunning, double-sided bar will face the casino floor and the restaurant. Sports betting will also be available within the restaurant.

“We are proud to continue our partnership with the Forrest County Potawatomi Community with a second Rock & Brews location in Wisconsin,” says Adam Goldberg, CEO & Partner of Rock & Brews. “We enjoyed getting to know the Carter community through the summer concert events and can’t wait to welcome them into our restaurant early next year for the full Rock & Brews experience.”
