The highly anticipated Big Rock Pub (BRP), located at Indian Springs Golf Club, is creating quite a buzz with their new concept in dining and entertainment and their incredible interior design. With rock and roll fundraisers for Desert Cancer Foundation, live music packing the dance floors weekly, a large outdoor patio with fire pit and outdoor pool tables overlooking the lush golf greens, this one of a kind, non-traditional “pub” is in full swing.
Tuesday, December 20, BRP is hosting a fundraiser for the Academy of Musical Performance (AMP), a music education program for kids created by a committee of volunteers involved with Coachella Valley Community Trust and seed funding from Goldenvoice. Five AMP bands will play from 6 – 8 p.m. This is a free event open to the public with a suggested donation of $20. For those donating, BRP will extend their happy hour specials that boast their most popular menu items at 50% off.
Wednesday, December 21, from 7 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. Big Rock Pub will be hosting the Greater Coachella Valley Chamber of Commerce’s, “All December Birthday Party.” This is a community wide birthday party for all December babies who tend to get overlooked due to the holidays. As they do every Wednesday night, the Smooth Brothers will be providing live music from 8 p.m. until 11 p.m., playing everything from BB King to Bruno Mars.
Friday and Saturday nights feature some of the valley’s favorite live bands from 9 p.m. to 12 a.m.
- Friday, December 16: The 212 Band
- Saturday, December 17: The Road Runners
- Friday, December 23: Lisa and the Gents
Monday night football is packing in the sports fans who enjoy the game on the pub’s 22 television screens. KCLB 93.7 broadcasts live, giving away a slew of free prizes every week. The weekly grand prize is a 32’’ television and a certificate for Spa Services at Miramonte Resort.
Big Rock Pub will be open on Christmas Eve from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. They will also be open Christmas Day from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. A breakfast buffet will be available for golfers and non-golfers alike from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. Reservations are always strongly recommended.
BRP will also feature special live music for their New Year’s Eve party that will be hosted in two seatings. The first seating is at 6 p.m. and the second seating at 9:30 p.m. Celebrations will sound off at 9 p.m. (EST) and 12 a.m. (PST).
