LANSING, Mich. (March 18, 2014) – Lansing Mall today announced Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill (“Toby Keith’s”) has signed a lease to open its first location in the Greater Lansing area at the property. Toby Keith’s will move into an approximately 18,000 square foot, newly constructed location near Regal Cinemas.

Construction has begun and the mall anticipates the restaurant will open in the fall.

Named for county singer Toby Keith’s 2003 hit single, “I Love This Bar,” the venue combines traditional Southern, home‐cooked fare with a unique country music atmosphere that will feature live music from the area’s most talented up‐and‐coming artists. The restaurant features an 85 foot full‐service bar in the shape of a guitar, a stage for live entertainment, a dance floor, a glass‐enclosed VIP room, and two indoor ‘barns’ available for private parties such as birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties and corporate events. Among the restaurant’s notable menu items are pulled‐pork sandwiches, fried bologna sandwiches, meatloaf and Southern fried Twinkies.

“We are thrilled for Lansing Mall to become Toby Keith’s new home, the first in the Lansing market,” said Missy Heanue, Vice President of Marketing for Rouse Properties, which owns Lansing Mall. “This is a unique destination tenant that enhances both our dining and entertainment offering, and we believe it will serve as a major attraction within the Greater Lansing area. Toby Keith’s offers an energetic and entertaining blend of music and food that’s truly an experience and makes for a great lunch or night out. We look forward to officially welcoming Toby Keith’s later this year and the lasting impact its presence will have on the mall and the community.”

Toby Keith’s is the latest high‐profile addition to Lansing Mall’s attractive lineup of dining options. Longhorn Steakhouse opened at the end of February and Nestlé Toll House Café is expected to open later this year. The mall also recently announced Regal Cinemas is opening a state of the art 12‐screen cineplex, featuring stadium seating and the latest technology and amenities that enhance today’s movie‐going experience.
