What Type of Bar and Restaurant Should Move Into Rock Bar & Grill Space?

Visions for Vacancies: Bar will close on Feb. 1 under agreement with City of Plymouth; What type of bar and restaurant would you like to see in its place?

The Rock Bar & Grill will close Feb. 1 as part of an agreement with the City of Plymouth after numerous liquor-related violations.

The business now is for sale, as owner Kevin Mantanago seeks a buyer for the building, along with a transfer of its coveted liquor license.

Needless to say, the new occupant of the former Rock Bar & Grill space will be another bar and restaurant. What characteristics would you like to see in a potential buyer? Any food menu items you're craving? Let us know in the comments!

I would love to see a good Mexican Resturant in its place.

How about a cozy little blues or jazz place?

How about a great sushi bar?

I'm with Dennis. I'd like to see some music venues in town! I think that would be a great draw for the city.

I'd love a blues or jazz place with occasional open jams.

The live music idea could work - there's not much of that downtown, and that would nurture a more subdued atmosphere.

A great music venue is much needed in Plymouth. I agree! Wine bar, great menu and awesome live music!

To everyone who likes a good music venue, and even open mic nights, check out the Roc Bar on AnnArbor rd. this Friday they are featuring Motor City Soul, they are really good. The crowd is great there. Try the Plymouth Roc out. They are implementing a new menu that was unveiled New Years Eve. They have Blues and Jazz venues monthly, along with drinks, and dinner. For those that like big band swing, twice a month they play for the dinner hours, they are fantastic. Catch them on facebook, or check out there website www.plymouthrocbar.com

The trouble with a having a true music venue downtown, is usually the establishment is just to small, or takes away to much table space. The place has to be pretty big to commit to a real venue. Space is money...

A piano bar could work. A guy playing a sax. Its a pretty small space for loud, live music.
John McKay (Editor) January 10, 2013 at 05:55 AM
As far as louder music goes, there's tenants upstairs, I've been told, which means that might not be the best venue for that. Quieter music such as a sax or piano or acoustic singer-songwriter-style might be ideal. On the topic of sushi, has anyone tried Panache 447's sushi menu? I know they also have some live music.
