BAKERSFIELD, Calif., Jan. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Perfection takes time and Bakersfield, California will become even more attractive and a lot more fun when the Firehouse Rosedale Station hosts its grand opening celebration of the newest Firehouse restaurant on Monday, January 23, 2017. The celebration of the restaurants' brand new location and modern design will kick off with tons of fun grand opening festivities.
On grand opening day, Monday, January 23, 2017, the residents of Kern County are invited to be among the first to experience the newly constructed Firehouse prototype. The building boasts contemporary and modern flair, while still serving up what has been known for over the past eight years, its fresh wings, steak, ribs and tri-tip. All Firehouse locations have started using a new slow cooking broasting halo-heat system for the excellent roast beef, tri-tip and ribs thus allowing the guest to experience a great product.
The new Firehouse Rosedale Station is located at 2905 Calloway Drive in Northwest Bakersfield. The grand opening will take place at 11 a.m. January 23, 2017.
The celebration is a chance for Firehouse President Russ Johnson, to unveil the completely new, modern look for this location. This prototype delivers a fresh, contemporary and comfortable dining experience. The Northwest design follows the model set forth for all future new build Firehouse locations, and it will influence enhancements and renovations to existing locations.
"It is very exciting to add our new location in Bakersfield where we can showcase the new design. We hope to continue to be a thriving part of the local area and offer a dining destination known for its great food, outstanding service, and entertainment venue. Like the Southwest Bakersfield location, Rosedale station features a full-service technology advanced Qubica Bowling experience. The Alley at Firehouse will feature our full food and bar menu all while bowling and enjoying the music and light extravaganza. Firehouse is exceptionally proud to reveal this new design concept, reinvigorating the look and feel of Firehouse without losing the essence of our iconic Bakersfield brand that Kern County has loved since 2009," said Firehouse Director of Operations, Kevin Dombchik.
The new Bakersfield design continues to build on Firehouse's eight years of success with an eye on the future. "At our core, Firehouse is a place where people relax, enjoy great food, watch their favorite sports teams and get to have fun in an entertainment venue and are liberated from the ordinary. The new design exemplifies what the future of Firehouse looks like, and we're excited about that future," added Dombchik.
Firehouse in The Northwest part of Bakersfield California, provides a completely new guest experience. From the moment they walk through the doors, guests relish a cleaner and brighter feel, with expansive windows and more open space to encourage social interaction and beckon people to come in and join in the fun! The building itself touches on the modern, with a rustic undertone in order to maintain aspects of the Firehouse heritage. The design features clean lines and sleek finishes on the interior and exterior of the building, but there's still a nod to the past with the use of brick throughout the space. One element guests will be sure to notice is the "bar centric" design of the vast bar and upstairs whisky bar, which highlights a full range of over-the-top whisky and tequila choices, over 26 draft domestic, import and local craft beers and various wine offerings for guests. Sports fans will especially enjoy the massive state-of-the-art audio visual elements like an interactive TV, giant high-definition flat panel TV's, and a projection screen that creates life-size images of your favorite sports heroes. Guests will feel like they are sitting right on the sideline of their favorite games. Paying nod to where it all started the Corner Pocket, which has been a Bakersfield Icon known for great food, full bar and excellent pool tables the Rosedale Station location, will feature 17 pool diamond pool tables.
Comfort was also a key consideration in the new design. Guests can choose to sit at the high-back seating tables, high-back seating booths offer comfortable areas for late-night visitors and sports watchers, while the expansive outside seating area offers plenty of space to kick back and enjoy spending quality time with friends while soaking up the southern California sun on the patio, you won't miss one minute of your favorite game as the phenomenal audio-visual package has you covered outside as well with multiple HDTV's. The new design could not be complete without celebrating Firehouse's eight years of history by featuring a "Heritage Walls," which highlights the iconic Kern County Fire antiques and several milestones over the past decades' history in Bakersfield truly a great experience.
We first came to the city of Bakersfield over 30 years ago when we opened our first business, where it all started the Corner Pocket pool hall and then the first Firehouse on White Lane opened in 2009. "The city of Bakersfield is very important to us. We are excited that Rosedale Station will continue to help support, grow and develop the community," said Dombchik.
Firehouse restaurant employs over 100 local residents currently and Rosedale Station will add over another 100 that make up the staff of cooks, bowling attendants, servers and managers. "We are certainly grateful for the city's continued acceptance," said Dombchik. "The welcoming spirit of the community and the desire to give back is what drove us to keep true to our roots and invest in new location in the Northwest. We realize that the employment opportunities as well as the tax revenue generated at the new location can be a significant contribution to the city and we are dedicated to investing towards the development of the new building."
"Guests come to Firehouse to escape the ordinary and we have been focused on creating an even more inviting, laid-back environment for them to do so," said Kevin Dombchik, Director of Operations for the West Coast Brand. "We are confident that the noticeable changes, significant amount of time and capital into this location we've made will impact every one of our guest, boosting the awesome dining, bowling and sports viewing experience they've come to expect from us.
