GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Thunderstruck Valley is transforming the old "Boomers" building, years after the prime Main Street space as been vacant.

"We're going to rock this country town," said Kim Casebolt, Thunderstruck Valley manager.

The new bar and restaurant will add to the diversity of downtown's nightlife as a country rock bar.

The 10,000 square foot space will be a split level venue with quieter seating downstairs and dancing upstairs.

"The vip area down below can be quiet and you can eat, drink and visit and upstairs just get crazy wild," Casebolt said. "We'll have all kinds of dancing. We can have country dancing, Latin dancing."

The Grand Junction City Council approved Thunderstruck Valley's plans to expand its liquor license to its outdoor dining area.

A soft opening is schedule for next weekend starting June 13 with a bigger grand opening to take place in a couple weeks.

"As everyone knows, when you come downtown you are just walking around hungry late at night, you're just wanting to laugh, you're just wanting to see a different show," Casebolt said. "We're going to bring a little city into this country."
