Roc Resto-Lounge & Fashion is not a clothing boutique, café, bar, lounge, restaurant, or nightclub. It's actually all of these things -- and more -- at once.
The new multiconcept establishment opened Saturday in the Coral Square Mall in Coral Springs. The roaming 10,000-square-foot Roc complex offers five concepts in one: a full-service restaurant, fashion boutique, bar/outdoor lounge, nightclub, and café/community annex all under one roof.
Founder Gaston Garcia said he wanted Roc Resto-Lounge & Fashion to be a place where everyone could feel like a VIP, regardless of what they spend.
"When I came to the U.S. from Argentina 17 years ago, I started to live the American Dream, which continues today," said Garcia. "Everyone at Roc Resto-Lounge & Fashion is dedicated to helping amaze every guest with quality, value, and experience. It's a one-stop entertainment destination that represents my personal philosophy."
Roc offers lunch, dinner, and cocktails. Executive chef Andrew Marin, formerly of Roy's Hawaiian Fusion and the Nordstrom Bistro, has crafted a number of options that range from $8 tacos to $23 Asian-glazed short ribs.
First, Sip is the huge indoor/outdoor bar that spans the exposed patio lounge to the inside where you can enjoy specialty drinks, craft beers, wine, and a variety of specialty drinks, including the restaurant's signature Roc Candy or Roc-Hattan.
Or you can fuel up at Recharge, the café annex that offers quick-serve meals and snacks, frozen yogurt, bubble teas, healthful dishes, and unique caffeinated beverages.
At night, the establishment transforms into Groove, a nightclub featuring nightly themed events, live music, and performances that include aerialists, dancers, and fashion shows featuring styles by Strut, the in-house fashion boutique. The shows take place on the restaurant's built-in runway, while the clothing boutique offers affordably priced men's and women's apparel and accessories to browse while you eat and drink.
Roc Resto-Lounge is located at 9225 W. Atlantic Blvd., Coral Springs. Visit rocrestolounge.com, or call 954-755-8383.
