Rock 'N' Roll Beach Club Replacement
I got this from WDW News Today:
It seems we finally have confirmation of the new table-service restaurant to replace the former Rock ‘N’ Roll Beach Club at Pleasure Island, according to the Orlando Sentinel:
E-Brands, the multi-concept Orlando based restaurant group, will launch its newest location and concept at Walt Disney World in 2009. The eatery will feature authentic Central and South American cuisine, specialty tequilas, premium wines and live music.
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to build upon our portfolio of 15 successful restaurants across the country — including such brands as Timpano and Samba Room — and our 25-year relationship with Walt Disney World Resort,” said Rashid Choufani, CEO/Owner of E-Brands Restaurants and operator of Epcot’s Morocco Pavilion. “We look forward to sharing our unique dining experience with Walt Disney World guests from around the globe.
No name has been announced for the new waterside eatery, but I love the diverse elements the company is promising and who can lose with waterside dining and premium tequila!
E-Brands Restaurants newest concept will come to life with a boldly colored hacienda-style interior featuring rustic beams that contrast against modern fixtures, stone floors and windows that open to create an open-air environment. The 5,000-square-foot, two-story facility will have a tequila bar and outdoor seating along Village Lake.

I wonder if it'll have a dance floor...
always plotting, planning, and looking forward to our next adventure...
That sounds like a really cool. I have two additional thoughts on this concept. 1) Sounds like they are trying to compete with Margaritaville 2) If they put a dance floor in it sounds like the might be competing against Bongo's and their Salsa dance floor.

Is it just me, or does nothing in that press release (other than the commentary by WDWNewsToday itself) say that it's going into the former Rock 'n Roll Beach Club?
