When David Siegel took over the former Las Vegas Hilton and LVH resort in July, he promised his tenant Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil’s Tatuado Restaurant & Cantina would co-exist with a forthcoming new Mexican dining option. It appears those plans didn't work out.
Very quietly, Neil’s Tatuado Restaurant has shuttered and all mentions of the restaurant were removed from the Westgate Las Vegas website. The rocker himself has made no formal statement about the closing, but his social media encourages fans to head to his other in-town dining spot, Vince Neil's Tatuado Eat Drink Party at Circus Circus.
A Las Vegas local, Neil debuted his cantina in June 2010 under the original name Tres Rios, changing the name for synergy with his own Tatuado brand of vodka. Promoted dishes included "Vince's Dragstrip Superstar Taquitos, Smoking In The Boy's Room Fish Tacos and Red Hot Oyster Shooters." The room was decorated with Crüe memorabilia, Neil's own tour wardrobe and multiple TVs featured the band's music videos.
Mötley Crüe are currently prepping for the final months of the "Final Tour," which will run through 2015. A timetable for the new Mexican restaurant at the Westgate has not been released.
