Sammy Hagar’s Atlantic City Bar & Grill Will Not Re-Open
If you were hoping to visit Sammy Hagar's Beach Bar & Grill in Atlantic City this summer, you're out of luck. The Red Rocker has revealed that the bar will not be re-opening after suffering extensive damage from Hurricane Sandy in October.
Hagar posted the following update to his web site on Friday (March 8):
Following months of ongoing discussions, Sammy Hagar has regretfully been unable to come to terms with Caesars Entertainment on the rebuilding of the Sammy Beach Bar & Grill at Bally's Atlantic City Hotel and Casino. Since opening in May 2010, the restaurant had been a popular boardwalk destination until it was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. While Hagar continues to explore a new partnership in the region, he and his Hagar Family Foundation will remain committed to the Atlantic City community through which he has supported local children’s charities for the last several years.
The energetic rocker won't have too much time to sit around and mourn the loss, though. He's hoping to release a new album in 2013, and has also hinted at a possible reunion with the surviving members of his early group Montrose.
