The Twin Peaks breastaurant chain, which hosts its largest nationwide location at Harmon Corner, is expanding to Henderson. The 7,544-square-foot space, including a patio, takes over the shuttered Blue Water Restaurant & Sports Bar. And will be bringing Lumberjills, über-chilled beer and a mountain lodge gimmick.
The existing landscape won't change, but the Twin Peaks faux-lodge look will leave its mark on the the building. The Strip location features a unique 39-foot rock climbing wall, but in Henderson the emphasis is on a return to running a large sports bar, serving comfort food in equally large portions.
The chain's motto "Eats. Drinks. Scenic Views," will be affixed to the side of the building. The views include the self-aware company's dressing of their female staffers, Lumberjills, in plaid uniforms, tied at the midriff for cleavage focusing effect. The interior design vistas includes woodsy "Hickory Peppercorn" flooring and plenty of oak and walnut finishes. A weighty antlered stag sculpture resides outside. But, invading the outdoors serenity, six 80-inch sports-showing HDTVs will be built into the patio.
Twin Peaks is also renowned for serving beer served at 29 degrees and naming brands the Dirty Blonde or Knotty Brunette. A large, digital display thermometer will keep track of the temperature behind the central, rectangular 30-seat bar. Seating in the two divided sections includes the main dining room with 100 seats and wall-hugging booths at the rear of the restaurant. The 127-square-foot patio has room for 52, and an outdoor area at the entrance includes long wooden, communal tables.
Within the next year, Twin Peaks plans to open this location and another undecided spot in Summerlin. The chain now operates more than 40 restaurants, with an emphasis on the Texan market.
