Rock Revival

The stage is set for a River Rock Revival. River Rock Brewery owner Tom Stanton says he's ready to revamp the restaurant and brewery in an effort to add more "pizzazz."

Stanton owns the restaurant with Bobby Whitfield and S. Porter Brownlee. Opening its doors in fall 1997, it was the River Market District's first eatery, prefiguring the openings of The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, 6 Bridges Bar & Grill, the Underground Pub, the Pour House Bar & Grill and Sonny Williams Steak Room.

The restaurant closed Jan. 9. Workers begin today doing construction work inside. Though the brewery will remain intact, Stanton says River Rock will add a secondary theme. The restaurant will re-open in 60 days, he says.

We can't wait to see the results.
