Rapidly expanding, Southern California-based chain Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar is coming to Downtown Summerlin and dropping a mountain lodge into the soon to debut 106-acre, 1.6 million-square-foot indoor-outdoor mall.
The 10,696-square-foot, upscale casual Lazy Dog concept will occupy space A2, a very prominent location and probably the first restaurant guests will notice when approaching from the Red Rock Resort. An estimated $1.2 million has been assigned to construction on the already standing shell structure. A mezzanine floor and shaded dining patio is in the works. Plus, lots of wood, paw print design touches and a very customer focused environment.

Family-run and family friendly, Lazy Dog is noted for their brunches and a rustic decor as a running theme inspired by an imagined lodge in the Rocky Mountains. Fireplaces and log chandeliers are a common motif in their more than a dozen-plus previous locales. Expect a center bar with plentiful TVs and a menu including their signature "Hair Of The Dog Bloody Marys" and Mai Tais. The chain is also no stranger to the Vegas tradition of generous happy hours.
The broad menu includes items such as "spicy Moroccan chicken and cous cous," wok-fired Asian-influenced plates, their Baja California Burger and the "Black and Bleu Pizza." Plus, their buttermilk bone cakes, pancakes served in the shape of a doggy treat. The kids menu includes separately designed choices for children 8 or 12 years and under.
A very pet-friendly business, previous locations have made their patios open to owners and their dogs. Lazy Dog was created by Chris Simms, whose father and grandfather founded the Mimi's Cafe chain that operates two locations in Las Vegas.
Downtown Summerlin will officially debut Oct. 9.
