On the back end of this awkwardly bulky Fremont East building sits Backstage Bar & Billiards Lounge, a sister venue to Fremont Country Club which claims the side closest to Fremont and Sixth. Both venues have been a long time coming. Plans have been in the works since 2010.

After first hoping to make a joint Labor Day weekend debut, Backstage Bar & Billiards (Triple B for short) will finally hold its coming out party this Friday, November 16 while Fremont Country Club will now wait until early 2013 before welcoming its first guests.

Triple B is describing itself as "part upscale billiards lounge and part rock 'n' roll museum." The rock will be evident through the display of 30,000 pieces of vinyl, spanning eight decades. There will also be "a half-million dollars' worth of memorabilia" on view. And, let's not forget about the music itself. DJs will be able to spin their picks from that vinyl library and live acts will be brought in as well.

And, speaking of DJs, two are part owners -- DJ Lethal of Limp Bizkit and House of Pain fame and DJ Scotty Boy, a Vegas favorite who also performs nationally. Both will stop in from time to time for sets.

Triple B will crank up the sound and open its doors to the public starting at 10 p.m. this Friday night.

Update: Expect Fremont Country Club to open in January 2013. We just got an announcement for a show set to take place there for Tuesday, January 15. That's when the Down in the Weed and Speed West Coast Assault in the Year of X111 tour will take the stage. If you want to be there, $25 tickets can be bought at ticketfly.com.

11.14 Update: How we didn't see this one coming, we don't know. Triple B is delaying their opening to Wednesday, November 28.
