Ben Allen's Backyard Grill & Pub Opening in Naples

Naples, FL - Local country singer Ben Allen, who gained popularity and nationwide recognition through last season's TV show "The Voice", is stepping into the hospitality industry with a new restaurant named after him.

The Ben Allen's Grill & Pub will be located on 12655 Tamiami Trail E in Naples.  It will replace the Brooks Burgers restaurant which was previously at this location. The pub will focus on live music events and provide comfort food consisting of  a mix of pizza, pasta and burgers. The grand opening is targeted for the last week of June (Exact date TBD) and will be highlighted by a performance from the Ben Allen Band. 

When asked why he decided to open a restaurant, Ben Allen states: "It just felt like the right time to take a leap of faith. I believe  this is the right path to take towards bigger and better things. I wanted to create not only a restaurant, but a venue where local musicians can find a home. It feels like going back to my roots. I stepped on a stage for the first time ever in a small venue like Ben Allen's Backyard. We will provide a stage where artists perform close to the audience, play shows, learn what people want to hear and learn how to entertain. I want Ben Allen's Backyard to be a place where people can go to experience the magic of that."

The ownership of Ben Allen's Backyard is shared with Todd Brooks, owner of the local burger establishment of Brooks Burgers. Due to this collaboration, guests will find a menu which includes the award winning burgers from Brooks Burgers. "I would describe Ben Allen's Backyard as a fun live entertainment spot. Guests can not only enjoy live music and good food, but also special events like trivia nights and open mic happenings.  Beyond that, viewing sporting events will be enabled on over 20 TV screens including a 10 feet x 6 feet screen in the backyard of the restaurant" says Todd Brooks.
