Alice Cooper's Downtown Watering Hole Named a Top-10 Celeb Eatery By Tripadvisor

Shock-rocker Alice Cooper's downtown bar and grill, Cooperstown, has been named one of the nation's top 10 celeb-owned eateries by TripAdviser.

Cooper joins athletes (Michael Jordan), actors (Robert DeNiro) and fellow musicians (Justin Timberlake and Gladys Knight) on the list, which was compiled based on the travel site's user reviews.

Here's what the site had to say about the place:

Famously theatrical rocker Alice Cooper translated his over-the-top personality into a Phoenix sports bar and grill.

Dubbed, "Where Jocks and Rock Meet," Cooper's place shows off servers with "Alice Eyes" face paint and entrees named after famous athletes and celebrities, such as Tedy Bruschi, Kid Rock and even Vanna White.

Personally, I would argue Cooperstown isn't even the top musician-endorsed restaurant in town -- I've always been partial to Carlos Santana's Maria Maria at Tempe Market Place -- but I have to concede it's better than, say, a Planet Hollywood.
