Dierks Bentley Opening Third Whiskey Row Bar in Arizona
Dierks Bentley is bringing his particular brand of party to Gilbert, Ariz., with a third location for his bar, Whiskey Row.
The country-inspired venue takes on Bentley’s love of kicking back and enjoying life, featuring live music, American pub fare and, of course, great drinks. With the new location opening Feb. 27, the artist says he’s proud of how his vision has come to life in the franchise so far.
“When we opened our first Whiskey Row three years ago, I never would have guessed we’d be three bars in, in three years,” Bentley says in a press release. “The Riot Group and I have spent a lot of time making sure each Whiskey Row is our version of the perfect place to listen to music, watch a game or grab some great food and drinks. The vibe is really unique and special, and it's awesome to see so many people enjoying themselves at Whiskey Row.”

The new venue will be even larger than the other two, featuring a 30 percent bigger menu and a 4,600-square-foot patio, including space to play cornhole and ping-pong. Inside the venue, guests can enjoy a large dance floor and the live music stage with a view of downtown.
Bentley’s most recent album, Black, released in May 2016, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and earned him two No. 1 singles with “Somewhere on a Beach” and “Different for Girls,” featuring pop star Elle King. He won a CMA Award for Vocal Event of the Year for “Different for Girls,” which he and King also performed at the event. Bentley is featured on Cole Swindell’s latest single, “Flatliner,” which Swindell says he actually wrote for Bentley to sing.
“I wrote it for him, sent it to him and never heard from him,” Swindell explains. “I don’t know if he heard it or didn’t like it, but a year or so ago, I was texting with him and sent it to him, and he loved it. We talked about it for a while, and sure enough, we got to do it, and it’s gonna be awesome. I’m just very excited to be singing with Dierks.”
Bentley launches his What the Hell World Tour Jan. 19.
