The super-pointy roof is evolving before visitors' eyes at New York-New York and below it, the first Las Vegas Shake Shack is racing to meet a still promised December debut.
The East Coast cult burger chain will be entering the local patty wars in a big way this winter, with a 9,135-square-foot, patio-intensive space, costing an estimated $3,871,258 to construct.
The complete gutting of former sports bar occupant The Sporting House appeared a challenge to meet the opening deadline, but much progress had been made in the last month. And with the dramatic progress comes the release of a new rendering from the resort displaying the interior design.
The look will feature "lumber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council" and tabletops built from "reclaimed bowling alley lanes." Energy-efficient equipment will ensure "all electric usage will be offset through renewable energy credits."
Taken at its word, the new rendering indicates "Ale" will be served on the menu. The "modern day 'roadside' burger stand" serves ShackMeister Ale, created exclusively by Brooklyn Brewery. House wines from Napa Valley’s Frog’s Leap winery should also be expected.
Also joining the main menu of burger and flat-top dogs will be a Vegas-only "selection of rich and creamy frozen custard concretes."
The location has begun the local hiring process.
