Mohegan Sun’s ‘Comix’ expands to include ‘Roadhouse’ – a country bar and restaurant


For the first time, visitors to Mohegan Sun will be able to enjoy true “roadhouse” entertainment including live country music, mechanical bull riding, a Texas-style food menu, 30 craft beers on tap, a full bar and even line dancing. The changes come as part of a major expansion of Comix Mohegan Sun, which will be renamed Comix Roadhouse. The state-of-the art venue, which will officially open this winter, in Mohegan Sun’s Casino of the Earth, will present a mix of regional country bands, local performers and entertainment on the new Roadhouse stage. The club will continue to offer its popular stand-up comedy and alternative entertainment in the Comix Comedy Club section of the venue.

The menu will feature authentic Texas-style offerings such as smoked brisket, pulled pork and more with a focus on farm fresh ingredients delivered daily, along with Comix classics. Craft beers include local favorites Beer’d, Two Roads and Lawson’s as well as popular choices from across the country such as New Belgium, Stone & Elysian. Mixologists on the Comix team will be presenting special country-themed cocktail lists utilizing your favorite whiskeys and liquor along with many drink recipes new to the area.

“We are inspired by the continued strong popularity of country music and are really excited to be bring this to Mohegan Sun in a bar and restaurant concept,” said Michael Brauth, co-owner of Comix Roadhouse & Comedy Club in a press release provided by Mohegan Sun. “We know visitors will continue to love our lineup of top-rated comedians, and we look forward to now bringing them an authentic roadhouse experience with the best live country music around, a true mechanical bull ride experience, and even line dancing.  Add in our fantastic new menu, extensive craft beer offerings and our excellent cocktail program, and we truly have something for everyone.”

“Because Mohegan Sun is a major tour stop for the top Country music artists like Keith Urban, Darius Rucker, Kenny Chesney and so many others starting their careers in the Wolf Den, many then going on to play big arenas like ours, it’s such a perfect fit to welcome Comix Roadhouse, a new country attraction to our entertainment venues “, said Tom Cantone, Sr. Corp Vice President of Sports &  Entertainment of Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment in the press release.

Comix Roadhouse will be open 7 days a week for your entertainment & dining enjoyment.
