Holland America rocks out with Rolling Stone on new venue

The Rolling Stone Rock Room, a new classic rock club developed in partnership with Rolling Stone magazine, will debut as part of the Music Walk on Holland America Line's Nieuw Statendam and Koningsdam in December.

In the Rolling Stone Rock Room, a live band will chronicle rock history, kicking out hits by rock stars.

Classic rock's appeal

'Classic rock appeals to people across generations because the music is universal, and Rolling Stone Rock Room will bring another incredible live music venue to our ships,' HAL president Orlando Ashford said. It joins Music Walk venues Lincoln Center Stage, Billboard Onboard and BB King's Blues Club. 

Rolling Stone Rock Room will feature a five-piece band playing a collection of hits inspired by the magazine's top song lists. A special drinks menu is being created for the bar.

A first for Rolling Stone

'We're looking forward to this unique brand experience and the first partnership of its kind for us, to bring the Rolling Stone brand to life in the ultimate live rock venue at sea,' said Meng Ru Kuok, CEO of Rolling Stone International.
