Multi-PLATINUM Entertainer and Arizona native Dierks Bentley alongside Riot Hospitality Group (RHG) will debut its newest Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row location next month in Gilbert, AZ. Located at Heritage Marketplace on the southeast corner of Gilbert Road and Vaughn Avenue, just south of the U.S. 60, the third establishment throughout Arizona brings live music and American gastropub cuisine with a modern twist to the booming downtown district.
“When we opened our first Whiskey Row three years ago, I never would have guessed we’d be three bars in, in three years,” said Bentley. “The Riot group and I have spent a lot of time making sure each Whiskey Row is our version of the perfect place to listen to music, watch a game or grab some great food and drinks. The vibe is really unique and special, and it’s awesome to see so many people enjoying themselves at Whiskey Row.”
“We are very excited to open our third Whiskey Row location and be among many of the Valley’s best restaurateurs in Gilbert’s walkable entertainment hub,” said Ryan Hibbert, the CEO of RHG. “Downtown Gilbert has become this go-to destination for shopping, dining and entertainment in the Valley and we are proud to be a part of it.”
The 8,700-square-foot restaurant will officially open its doors Monday, February 27, 2017. It will include a 4,600 square-foot outdoor patio with space for cornhole and ping-pong, a large dance floor and stage inside, and large windows facing out to downtown. Guests will enjoy live music on the weekends along with daily happy hour specials. The menu, which is 30 percent larger than the other Whiskey Row locations, boasts modern American fare made from scratch using premium and local ingredients. There will be over 50 beers on tap and TVs throughout the venue.
This Whiskey Row was designed to reflect the Town of Gilbert’s agricultural roots while instilling contemporary finishes to provide the restaurant with the ambiance of an agriculturally inspired warehouse.
“This Class-A restaurant was developed using best-in-class construction featuring reclaimed woods and steel, with an emphasis on high ceilings and natural light, giving the restaurant the feeling of an old barn or trading post,” says Hibbert. “The restaurant’s entrance and exterior windows face Gilbert Road, which really fosters connectivity to the lively, pedestrian-friendly downtown atmosphere, while also providing significant frontage for everyone that passes by.”
Since moving from Phoenix to Nashville, the GRAMMY nominee has established his own artistic trail in Country music. Instead of rehashing proven formulas, he’s doggedly reinvented his sound and subsequently developed an uncommon mix of commercial success and critical respect. Known for “traveling his own path…Country music’s most relatable star” (Esquire) recently released his eight studio album BLACK, which ranks as the best selling release of Bentley’s career, after debuting at the No. One position on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart and Top Country Albums chart. The critically-acclaimed album has already spawned two No. One hits, the PLATINUM certified chart-topping hit “Somewhere On A Beach” and GOLD “Different For Girls” featuring Elle King. Bentley has now amassed 15 No. one songs, 13 GRAMMY nominations and a recent CMA Award winner for Vocal Event of the Year. “The bluegrass picker, the love song singer and the stadium rocker all packaged together” (Associated Press) has been a Grand Ole Opry member for over a decade and will launch his 2017 WHAT THE HELL WORLD TOUR on Jan. 19 in Dayton, OH.
