  • Will Kansas City be cool enough for a Rolling Stone restaurant?

If you're planning to be in Los Angeles next Sunday -- November 21 -- you may want to stop and star-gawk at the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland. That's the night when a new restaurant-and-bar concept is officially unveiled as the venue for the after-party for the American Music Awards: the Rolling Stone Restaurant & Lounge. 

The venue marks the first time that Rolling Stone founder and publisher Jann Wenner has licensed the magazine's name to an American restaurant. The Los Angeles restaurant is planned to be the flagship of a chain of similar restaurant/bar operations.

Here's the description of the new nightspot provided by the restaurant's publicist:

The 10,500-square foot space is distinguished by a "vintage chic" design, a facile interplay between 19th-century bohemia and modern America bravura...a gleaming, two-story, half-cylinder of paned glass that rises from Highland Avenue, allowing natural light to flood through during daytime hours..."

Modern American bravura? Now it's just my imagination running away with me, but...I can just see a Rolling Stone Restaurant & Lounge right in the heart of the Power & Light District. Maybe near the new Whopper Bar?
