PHOENIX — The wait is finally over, Gilbert: Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row will open this week to the tunes of a free concert.

AZBigMedia reports the location officially opened its doors Tuesday, but things will really get grooving on March 16 with the complimentary concert featuring Grammy award-winner Kelsea Ballerini. However, it appears as if tickets for the event are no longer available.

Bentley hasn’t said if he will take the stage.

“I really do love country music and there’s so many folks out there that do love country music but don’t have a place to go,” Bentley said of the new location when ground was broken last year.

The downtown Gilbert location has been in the works for about a year and was slated to open last month but that was pushed back.

The 8,000-square-foot restaurant features an indoor space for a dance floor and parties and an additional 10,000 square feet of space on the patio.

The outdoor portion has patio games such as pingpong and cornhole, also known as bags.

In addition to fun and music, Whiskey Row will offer American gastropub-type food.

The restaurant’s architect, Artie Vigil, said the restaurant was built with reclaimed wood, steel and high ceilings, which will give the feel of agricultural warehouses used in Gilbert.

Whiskey Row also has locations in Tempe and Scottsdale.
