Rock-a-holics in Los Angeles have been jonesing hardcore in anticipation of Rolling Stone Magazine’s flagship restaurant and lounge, located in the heart of Hollywood at Hollywood & Highland. (For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Aztec-themed retail/culinary bohemoth, the complex houses another awards show you may have heard of, the Oscars.)
In what is sure to become a major nightlife destination for both music lovers and party goers, the Rolling Stone Restaurant and Lounge is the first time the seminal rock rag has ever licensed it’s moniker for an American eatery. While the hot spot won’t open its doors until later this winter, they did recently host the VIP after party for the American Music Awards. And as you know, as much as Angelenos enjoy ceremonies and the like, they absolutely love an afterparty.
Chic celebs gathered in throngs at the 10,500 square foot space, to see and be seen while getting a sneak peek at the RSLA luxe environs, which marries old world European elegance with Hollywood glamour. Rolling Stone founder and publisher Jann Wenner was in the house mixing it up with a who’s-who of Hollywood including Avril Lavigne, the Black Eyed Peas, Brandy Norwood, Brittney Snow, Christina Milian, Dave Navarro, Enrique Iglesias, Eric Benet, Jackson Browne,Jamie Foxx, JC Chasez, Jesse McCartney, Katy Perry, Karina Smirnoff, Kelly Osbourne Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Ke$ha, Kid Rock, Mark Salling, Matt Lanter, Matthew Morrison, Mena Suvari, and Russell Brand.
Said Warner in a recent press outreach, “The Rolling Stone restaurant and lounge captures the essence of the magazine and is the ideal extension of our brand. We are excited to open up the venue by hosting the AMA afterparty and sharing this new Hollywood destination with some of the top names in the music community.”
