If you've been hoping for a pint pulled by Pawn Stars patriarch Rick Harrison, it's getting closer to showtime. Rick’s Rolling Smoke Tavern has installed 16 taps on the upper floor of the two-level, $2 million, 11,708-square-foot retail and dining Pawn Plaza and is now confident it will be open in two weeks.
A joint venture between the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop boss and locals Rollin Smoke Barbeque, the upstairs tavern planned to cover the walls with memorabilia, host exhibits from Rick's personal collection and serve cocktails named after the Pawn Stars staff.
Back in May, Harrison told Eater Vegas he had acquired a health card and TAM card "just so I can bartend and serve barbecue."
The Tavern includes a 288-square-foot patio, or "party deck" as it's been dubbed, offering views of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop across the parking lot.
The ground floor Rollin Smoke Barbeque is being designed with communal wooden picnic tables and waitresses wearing "Daisy Duke" inspired attire. The tavern announcement made no mention if the barbecue joint would debut on the same day.
