Red Star Rock Bar has added a big ol’ new music venue, restaurant and bar to it’s family with Red Star Live, at 9841 E. Adamo Dr., part of Brandon’s Harley-Davidson Dealership.

If that alone doesn’t sound like a place where Dalton from “Road House” would spend his nights kicking some ass, know there’s no noise ordinance in the new location, so things can get really loud. The venue has three stages, two bars, a giant outdoor patio and a full service restaurant serving lunch and dinner seven days a week. The menu features classic bar fare including burgers, wings, and oyster specials on Sundays.

Though only opened since February, Red Star Live has already welcomed local celebrities including Damon Fowler for the “Fowler and Friends'' series every Thursday in April. Fowler, whose recent album Alafia Moon hit no. 1 on the Billboard Blues Album charts, is joined by Dan Signor next Thursday, April 22.

And in case you are wondering, Seminole Heights’ Red Star Rock Bar is still open though the Ybor City location has been transformed to the bar White Lie (though still run by the same group).

Fowler and Friends: Damon Fowler w/Dan Signor. Thursday, April 22, 7 p.m. Red Star Live, Tampa.
