The Linq's future pan-Asian restaurant tenant, F.A.M.E. Night Market and Ultra Lounge, will live up to its acronym of "Food. Art. Music. Entertainment." with the creation of a balcony built for Japanese drummers and a DJ sound-stage. Located at the midpoint between The Strip and The High Roller observation wheel, the two story restaurant will create a 10,000-square-feet concept hoping to emulate the feel of an Asian street market.
The front facade will match the brick-face street theme of The Linq and will add fire pillars and large F.A.M.E. marquee signs.
Inside, the first floor food stations will include Korean, Japanese, Chinese and Thai dishes. Choices include dim sum, Chinese stir-fry, barbecue, noodle soups and Southeast Asian stir-fry. A corner station is being created with a mock food truck frontage, complete with a truck's front grill and headlights. A large square bar sits in the center of the room.
The two-story structure opens up the second floor. The design includes a multitude of styles and finishes with a heavy emphasis on unusual lighting. Materials such brass, subway tiles, distressed metals and red brick fill the space and seating ranges from banquettes and lounge chairs to fast food style stools.
On the floor above, a corner balcony will be built with three stages built specifically for drummers to play overlooking The Linq promenade. Inside, a DJ performance stage will entertain the main lounge area. Other acts, including live graffiti demonstrations, are hinted by the company's promotional video.
A second bar is located upstairs and loungers also have the option to heading out onto a side patio also equipped with a small bar. The balcony will feature fake grass and plenty of planters.
The second floor kitchen will serve guests from a robata counter and a sushi bar area decorated with fabric wall coverings to continue the lounge feel.
F.A.M.E. is being created by HIG Management, the company behind recent Las Vegas food court additions China Max, Chicken Now and TJ's Taco Bar.
