Work on the new 60,000-square-foot "dining and entertainment destination" set to completely remodel the Harmon Avenue side of the Miracle Mile Shops will be anchored by a 16,928-square-foot Buffalo Wild Wings. The casual food franchise will take over the former Harmon Theater, once known for hosting the now disgraced gay nightclub Krave. For Buffalo it will mark their 10th Las Vegas destination and their closest location to the Strip.
The wing-meisters explain their company policy is built around a motto of "Wings. Beer. Sports," with more than 1,000 restaurants created since 1982. Their arrival will strangely compete with another unannounced wing-centric project just around the corner inside the Planet Hollywood Resort. They will be hosting the 7,027-square-foot Knockout Wings mystery concept, also first revealed by Eater Vegas.
Buffalo Wild Wings will reside within the existing Harmon Theater footprint and add a patio, allowing less than ideal obstructed views of the Strip to guests turned to their right.
Still unannounced are the other tenants along this stretch of the Harmon Avenue building. Next door to the wings, a 6,333-square-foot space is vacant, pitched as suitable for live music. A BB King Blues Club & Grill was once rumored for this area. Then the 10,477-square-foot Todai Seafood & Sushi Buffet is listed as available for a new tenant to take over and gut, even while Todai is still in business.
On the other side of the Harmon entrance, a 19,218-square foot space with a mezzanine is also free to lease, formerly home to the shuttered DB's Pong & Pool run by Blondies Sports Bar & Grill inside the mall.
Construction work on the huge "eat, drink and rewind" concept is expected to begin within the next two months.
