We're Up All Night to Get Lucky (Foo's)

Take a look inside the four rooms at the new American izakaya Lucky Foo's.

Southeast Las Vegas, you now have an American izakaya to call your very own. Lucky Foo’s Restaurant & Bar spans 5,000 total square feet with four different dining areas with seating for up to 180 guests. Each time you go, you can experience something new, all bathed in a design meant to inspire luck and fortune.

The restaurant refers to each room as a "microenvironment" with a different lucky character as the centerpiece. On the patio, find the "Buddha" with room for 36 guests. The seating here surrounds a custom crafted fountain of Budai, otherwise known as The Laughing Buddha. A Kimmi Bar, when photographed not complete, plans to feature a Kimmi doll collection. Foo Square is the main room with its tatami mats. The main dining room, known as Belly of the Dragon, has dark wood tones and a massive mural by local artist Sean Clauretie.

Throughout, find reclaimed and salvaged materials from Hamada, the former restaurant on East Flamingo Road. The tatami mats, hand-painted Taiko Asian drums, roof tiles, and icons from various Asian cultures were all salvaged from the restaurant.
