That long vacant space at The Linq between Sprinkles and Flour & Barley has finally found a tenant.
Pearl's Sunset Strip, also known as Pearl's Liquor Bar, is bringing their 1920s vintage Hollywood-themed cocktail lounge and "New American" small plate restaurant to this 6,542-square-foot corner space underneath Brooklyn Bowl.
Owned by the LORE Group, Pearl's Liquor Bar opened in August 2013, in between the legendary Whisky a Go Go venue and LORE'S own Rock & Reilly's Irish Pub. LORE recently co-partnered with chef Akira Back to create L.A.'s Yellowtail Sunset.
The company created a Nevada business license for Pearl's Vegas LLC a mere seven months after their Sunset Strip debut. LORE have long been rumored to be slotting Las Vegas into their expansion plans.
The $2.5 million earmarked for construction will build a space overseen by the Marshall Group, who worked on Yard House further down The Linq, and designed by Celano Design Inc, with Klai Juba Wald as the architect of record. Celano's recent local work can be found at Buddy V's Ristorante at the Venetian and Mercadito at Red Rock Resort. Neither Pearl's Sunset Strip, nor an estimated completion date have been publicly announced.
In Los Angeles, the Liquor Bar's slight speak-easy vibe is built around a fictitious back-story of a perfume and jewelry shop owner named Pearl who clandestinely serves bootleg booze concealed in perfume bottles.
Also serving brunch, Pearl's dinner menu ranges from small dishes like oysters, crab cake, and flat-breads to heartier plates like chicken meatballs and lamb shoulder. Branded vintage styled cocktails feature names like the Ginger Rogers, Sunset Sangria and the perfect for Las Vegas, Mickey Cohen.
