Kiss front men Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley will bring their rock-inspired restaurant, Rock & Brews, to Lee Vista in April, according to a news release.

Rock & Brews will open in the Lee Vista Promenade shopping center, which is just north of the Orlando International Airport at 6699 S. Semoran Blvd. in Orlando.

This will be the second location for Rock & Brews, which opened a spot in Oviedo in 2014.

Besides serving American comfort food, the Lee Vista location will stock two full bars with international and craft beers.

The rock-inspired environment will include multiple flat screens showing rock videos and sports. Rock artwork, including a Great Wall of Rock featuring iconic rock and roll legends, will be on display as well.

A dog-friendly patio will offer fire pits, couches, games such as giant Jenga and live music on the weekends.

The chain, which launched in 2012, has about 15 restaurants worldwide. When Simmons and Stanley visited shortly after the Oviedo restaurant’s opening,  the classic rock duo mentioned plans to open about five more Rock and Brews locations in Central Florida, plotting another south of Disney World.
