Kid Rock's brand is expanding from music to politics to the restaurant industry.

The artist who once brought us "Bawitdaba" and is currently a could-be Senatorial candidate -- one who's apparently gaining GOP support -- will not only be opening the new Little Caesars Arena in Detroit this September with a string of six concerts, he'll also be debuting his Made in Detroit restaurant at the venue.

He's bringing a 5,800-square-foot, 230-seat eating establishment to downtown Detroit that will have a lunch and dinner menu offering "classic Detroit and Southern-influenced dishes, along with traditional comfort foods and bar fare," including local beers and craft cocktails. Kid Rock memorabilia may adorn the walls, but local artists will get to use the restaurant's live-music stage to perform, according to an announcement made Tuesday (Aug. 29).

Made in Detroit is scheduled to be open year-round, whether or not events are happening at the arena.

The Detroit Free Press reports the venue will also have food, coffee and cocktail offerings at its District Market.

Kid Rock's first show at the Little Caesars Arena is set for Sept. 12.
