(KHNL) - Rock legend and Maui resident Sammy Hagar is planning a new island style cafe at Kahului Airport.

Hagar will partner with HMSHost Corporation to open Sammy's Beach Bar & Grill.  The restaurant decor will feature signed memorabilia from Hagar's own personal collection and a full bar serving fresh fruit cocktails amidst Hagar, Van Halen and other rock and surf inspired music.

All proceeds from Hagar's restaurant chain will be donated to local Hawaii charities via the Red Rocket Foundation, an organization Hagar and his wife Kari are establishing to help support children's organizations.

The restaurant is scheduled to open in early 2008.
