ThunderStruck Valley to open June 13 in old Boomers location
WHAT: ThunderStruck Valley Grand Opening
WHEN: Friday, June 13
WHERE: 436 Main St., Grand Junction (old Boomers location)
Downtown Grand Junction just got a lil’ wilder. ThunderStruck Valley, a new bar and restaurant, will open in the old Boomers location on Friday, June 13.
“It’s going to be a country-rock bar,” said Mark Towner, the visionary behind ThunderStruck’s concept and part of a group of people working to make it happen.
“The downtown area needed a place to dance and listen to music, socialize and network.”
The two-story hotspot — located at 436 Main St. — will feature outdoor patio seating, a milder first-floor experience (with dining open late night) and a “Coyote Ugly” feel upstairs.
“We’re going to separate the wild from the mild,” Towner explained.
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
Customers will enjoy live music, dancing (including line dancing), plus food (brunch, lunch and dinner) as part of the ThunderStruck experience. An open bar will be served with brunch.
Dining hours are not yet confirmed, but downtown’s newest bar will run 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. on its opening day.
“We wanted to get it open as soon as possible due to Country Jam (set for June 19-22),” Towner said.
Stay tuned for a website and Facebook page; it’s in the works.
