The Linq is getting set to debut its lineup of 32 storefronts taking over the three-story complex opening in 2013. First up, Brooklyn Bowl, a concert, nightclub, bar, bowling alley and restaurant venue out of New York City that brings its first venue to the Western United States. The place takes up 25 percent of the $550 million, 300,000-square-foot space that includes the massive High Roller observation wheel.
Brooklyn Bowl plans to have a 2,000-seat performance hall capable of hosting crowds watching football on Sundays, a DJ or hip-hop karaoke and nightly concerts. The Bromberg Brother's Blue Ribbon provides the food.
Also, already announced beer joint Yard House opens its third Vegas location. The new digs plan to be the largest Yard House location and house a massive two-level outdoor patio and beer garden space next to the High Roller.
An Asian-themed restaurant called F.A.M.E., which stands for food, art, music and entertainment, will offer sushi, dim sum, noodle bowls and robata grill foods with lounge seating and street art from urban Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore and Seoul.
Other tenants include Sprinkles, the Los Angeles-based cupcake and ice cream shop, which will open the brand's first flagship property outside of Los Angeles. Even the cupcake ATM will be on hand.
Billy Richardson and his chef and partner Anthony Meidenbauer's Block 16 Hospitality expand their empire with Flour & Barley, a brick oven pizzeria.
Off the Strip Bistro, a bistro and bar from former N9NE Group partner Andrew Belmonti, plans to feature steaks, pastas, chicken and fish dishes along with traditional American comfort food.
The Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery, which originally launched in Vegas only to move its headquarters to Tempe, Ariz., returns with Mark DiMartino bringing a Celtic-themed sports pub.
