Mötley Crüe front man Vince Neil was meant to debut his namesake rock and roll bar in Pahrump this weekend, but the former Valley Bar is still being transformed into the 3,962-square-foot Vince Neil's Tatuado Wild Side Tavern.
Citing "weather-related issues" from recent storms, saloon boss Michael Tsunis assured the Pahrump Valley Times the venture will now debut on Friday, Dec. 3, the second postponement for opening night.
Tsunis is CEO of Neil's Tatuado Hospitality Management Group, which still promotes the company's shuttered Tatuado Cantina on its home page, one year after closing at the Westgate resort.
When the saloon finally debuts, 60 miles west of Las Vegas, plans call for Vince Neil memorabilia on the walls and a 250-gallon aquarium in the center of the bar occupied by a shark named "Mr. Neil." A giant mechanical snake will randomly blow smoke at guests, an attraction salvaged from Neil's shuttered Dr. Feelgood’s Rock Bar & Grill that operated in Miami Beach from 2008 to 2013.
Inside will offer pool tables, two dart machines, plus 15 beers on tap, but you'll need to head outside if you get hungry, where a 22-foot food truck will be permanently stationed serving street tacos and Vince Neil Bistro burgers.
Acts will perform on the small indoor stage, while better known names like Ratt, Slaughter and Vince Neil himself are penciled in for a forthcoming outdoor stage area.
