Los Angeles-based LORE Group, short for Life of Reilly Hospitality Group, have long attempted to make an expansion jump to Las Vegas and may have finally married the right concept to the right space.

Rock & Reilly's Vegas is now hiring for the sixth incarnation of their "Irish rock pub," that also bills itself as an "upscale gastropub."

Rock & Reilly's is confirmed for the Metroflag company’s nine-parcel stretch of real estate on the eastside of the Strip, located between Smith & Wollensky and the shuttered Harley Davidson Cafe. While less certain, it is probable the pub will take over the recently shuttered, 9,000-square-foot home of Heart Attack Grill and the former base for the Pete Rose Bar & Grill at the Hawaiian Marketplace. Sitting below a Chili's Grill & Bar, the now vacant ground floor is undergoing an intense renovation and already includes a long patio facing the Strip.

Job interviews for the new venture are being held inside this restaurant space and prospective employees are encouraged to be "serious about teamwork, fun, and a sense of humor. While we sell food and drink, our mission is to deliver entertainment, fun and an immersive experience to our guests."

The Lore Group previously attempted to expand their Pearl's Sunset Strip cocktail lounge to the Linq Promenade back in 2015, before plans were dashed and the space was eventually given over to In-N-Out Burger.

Rock & Reilly’s operates in New York, Park City, UT, Downtown Los Angeles and the Sunset Strip and is soon to debut an outpost at the Los Angeles International Airport. On the menu, whiskey cocktails, beer and whiskey flights and dozens of stand-alone whiskey choices. Dining choices include Irish Nachos, Dublin Street Tacos, sliders, flatbread, burgers, wraps and sandwiches.

An opening date has yet to be announced, but the job listings promise "soon."
