An "Old Vegas" themed tavern and restaurant is confirmed for the garage next to Atomic Liquors, but construction work won't begin for a couple more months.

Special use permits for the 3,237-square-foot Atomic Kitchen will be presented to the city next month and the project is scheduled to appear before the City Council for final approval in January.

Slotted inside the garage once used to film the backroom mobster scenes in Martin Scorsese's 1995 film Casino, "American style" cuisine is on the menu and the interior design will be "semi industrial yet refined."

The vintage theme stretches back to the building's 1940s origins and include the artwork on the walls, vintage videos played in the bathrooms and Sin City-inspired cocktails. Live entertainment will be scheduled twice a week.

Appearing before the City Council to fix zoning issues on this plot of land bought by the Downtown Project for $3.48 million, Councilman Bob Coffin warned of noise issues when events spill out onto their 475-square-foot fenced-in patio. Speaking for the kitchen, Todd Kessler noted noise was an issue they wished to contain, particularly as they will be their own nearest neighbors when the same development team moves ahead with construction on a five-story residential building right next door.
