Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS to Open Rock & Brews Paia on Maui

Today, Rock & Brews announced that KISS rock legends Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, co-founding partners in Rock & Brews family-friendly, rock-themed restaurants, plan to open a Rock & Brews restaurant in the beach-side, historic community of Paia on Maui in January. A two-day opening celebration is scheduled for January 25 and 26, with a special KISS Rock & Roll VIP Package available at The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui, the official resort sponsor of the event.

Rock & Brews Paia was designed by Maui architect Jim Niess of Maui Architectural Group, along with teacher, spiritual leader and artist Al Lagunero of Maui, serving as a consultant on Hawaiian culture and art. The ‘ohana restaurant will pay tribute to the familial warmth and character that is synonymous with Paia, while respecting the vibrant Rock & Brews brand look and feel. It will feature Rock & Brews’ popular casual American comfort food, as well as local favorites, and a full bar, including Paia’s largest selection of craft beers.

Guests will be able to enjoy al fresco or indoor dining in a family-friendly rock concert-like environment complete with concert lighting, multiple screens presenting concert videos, hand-painted murals of rock artists, album and tour art, as well as art by local artists and art that salutes Hawaiian history and culture. The restaurant is designed to welcome local families and visitors alike. Ample parking is available.

The grand opening of Rock & Brews Paia will pay tribute to both Wounded Warrior Project and the Paia Youth Center. A luncheon will be held on January 26 for wounded warriors, returning vets and active military, and an evening celebration will benefit the Paia Youth Center. Both events will be hosted by Simmons and Stanley.

The Fairmont Kea Lani, located in nearby Wailea, will be offering a KISS Rock & Roll VIP Package, available to guests attending the opening. The package includes a one-bedroom suite at The Fairmont Kea Lani, access to the Willow Stream Spa VIP grand opening party (with meet and greet and photo opportunities with Simmons and Stanley, as well as a black & white manicure station, a rock & roll red lipstick station, hot rock neck massages, rock & roll sushi rolls from the resort’s award-winning K? restaurant, and more), two tickets to the Rock & Brews opening celebration on Sunday, January 26 (including red carpet photo opportunities), and two Rock & Brews Paia t-shirts. It is valid January 24-27 (three nights) and priced at $349 per night, plus tax and resort fees. For more information or to make reservations, please visit
