Rock n Dine

(Press Release) For years, the music industry has entertained us in clubs and restaurants, stadiums and karaoke bars. Los Angeles is a Mecca for talented musicians who will probably never break into the industry but will always have a passion for playing. They'll never know the feeling of performing for thousands but now they have a place to show us what they're made of.

The Makeshift Lounge with its many music industry investors will ensure that the place is always full of promising newcomers. But remember, we're still in L.A., so don't be surprised when your favorite Rock Stars pop in for an intimate acoustic performance.

Scheduled for construction in the heart of Hollywood, The Makeshift Lounge will be only a short walk for the many musicians of the area. But then there's the food -- yet another reason for people from all over L.A. to visit. The managing partners of The Makeshift Lounge have worked for many years in some of the best restaurants throughout the city.

From 5-star dinning rooms to popular nightclubs, this group has and will continue to focus on food quality and innovation, a high level of customer service and most of all, fun. The Makeshift Lounge will be open for lunch and dinner 7 days per week until 2am. They could close it up earlier but no one wants to be the one to tell the band that they have to go home. It's a win-win situation for all involved.

They will be spending a great deal of focus on the interior. It is not to be designed like the "standard" music hall. A key element to the atmosphere will be how it is warm and inviting for all. The designer has had much success with some of the most highly regarded establishments in Los Angeles and he has been selected for his ability to incorporate the concept with the space.

See you there!
