RockHouse Live International, the exciting new hybrid live & virtual entertainment-themed restaurant and venue concept by veteran entertainment execs Zach Bair and Jock Weaver, announced today that the company is opening a new location in Oxford, MS, home of the University of Mississippi and the Ole Miss football team.
The new location, just a block from the town square, boasts an area of over 4,800 square feet and a large patio spanning the side of the building. The building is located at 308 S. Lamar, Oxford, MS, 38655, the former home of Soul Shine Pizza, which is being completely remodeled for RockHouse Live Oxford.
As with the RockHouse Live Clearwater Beach flagship location, which was launched a mere 60 days ago and is outperforming expectations, RockHouse Live Oxford will feature extensive indoor and outdoor seating, a large stage, custom lighting and sound, and will feature nightly entertainment and live music, including local, regional and national artists.
“Even though our primary focus for our expansion is waterfront/beachfront/tourist areas, Oxford is a natural spot for a RockHouse Live,” said Bair, who grew up in college towns. “It is an awesome town with a big university, full of fun-loving people who strongly support their teams and sports, and who love great music and entertainment. We will tackle both – RockHouse Live Oxford will be completely lit up with plenty of big-screen TVs, as well as with awesome bands and fun things to do like karaoke. It will be THE place to hang out in Oxford!”
Weaver said, “We are excited to have secured this iconic location, on South Lamar, right off the square, in Oxford Mississippi. We view Oxford as the ‘Capital of the Mid-South.’ The University of Mississippi is a magnet that attracts the brightest and best of college students, with an entrepreneurial environment incubates success, an artistic community that supports the best of music, literature, and art; and with a pro-business environment that is unparalleled. And of course, there is the attraction of Ole Miss athletics that experience the phenomenon of an annual pilgrimage of loyal fans celebrating this amazing college town. RockHouse Live will be the location where these scholars, entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, athletes, alumni, and local residents, congregate to Eat, Drink, and Rock!”
RockHouse Live Oxford is expected to be open by mid-August, well ahead of the first Ole Miss home game against Austin Peay State University, on September 11th.
As with all RockHouse Live locations, RockHouse Live Oxford will feature integrated technology from VNUE, Inc. (OTC: VNUE), of which Bair is CEO. VNUE has a 4.99% stake in RockHouse Live International.
Bair and Weaver continue to expect that the concept will grow rapidly and the pair has already identified more locations of interest.
