PHOENIX — Country music star and Arizona native Dierks Bentley broke ground on a new Whiskey Row location in Gilbert on Tuesday.

“Folks that want to be around that country vibe, they have an outlet,” the singer said the the groundbreaking ceremony. “It honors who they are.”

The chain’s third location in the Valley will be located near Elliot and Gilbert roads in the heart of downtown Gilbert.

“We are creating a restaurant authentic to Gilbert that will add more energy in the already bustling downtown area and provide entertainment and food experiences targeted for East Valley residents,” David Sellers, president of LGE Design Build, the company building the location, said in a press release.

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

The outdoor portion will have patio games like ping pong and cornhole, also known as bags.

“This concept came to me and I was like, ‘Gosh this is great,'” Bentley said. “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.”

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

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