Rolling Stone magazine to launch restaurant chain in L.A.

Los Angeles The nation’s most iconic music magazine, Rolling Stone, announced Friday it will open a large-scale restaurant and nightclub in Hollywood, Calif. The first Rolling Stone outpost is set to open next summer at the Hollywood & Highland Center.

The multi-level Rolling Stone space will encompass more than 10,000 sq. ft., and offer a restaurant, bar, lounge and upscale private-event space. Designed by Brodin Design, the venue  will feature  exposed black brick, tufted leather and vaulted ceilings throughout the location, as well as an antique iron staircase.

To help develop the new venture, Rolling Stone  has tapped Lucky Rug Group, which is developing multiple restaurant, nightlife and bar properties in the Los Angeles area and across the United States.

"We've been looking for the ideal opportunity to expand the brand for some time and we are thrilled to be working with Lucky Rug Group,” said Jann Wenner, the founder and publisher of Rolling Stone.

Commented Lucky Rug Group co-owner Joe Altounian: "The Rolling Stone brand transcends age, gender and musical preference and we are committed in making sure that everything that encompasses the Rolling Stone space at Hollywood and Highland Center will reflect that," added Altounian. "Our vision is to provide guests with unforgettable food and entertainment with the unmistakable Rolling Stone style as the backdrop."
