Amid the perpetually fluid dining scene at Lake Las Vegas, Irish pub The Auld Dubliner appeared to be immune from all the upheavals since arriving in 2007. That was until this summer, when the California-based concept shuttered its 2,181-square-foot Montelago Village watering hole.
Alessandro Polastri, who debuted the French-inspired Mimi & Coco Bistro at the Village back in February, already has plans for the space and intends to re-open under the new name of The Pub.
The Auld Dubliner was an expansion of an original bar in Long Beach, California. Owner David Copley at one time operated a mini-empire of five Irish pubs, before also shuttering locations in Mammoth Lakes, California, and Tucson, Arizona.
Next up for Montelago Village, Vino Del Lago, a 1,122-square-foot, wine, tapas and “jazz lounge,” planned to include a bar area, main dining room and 82 square feet of wine storage.
Estimated opening dates for the lounge or the new pub have yet to be revealed.
