Announcing plans last June for two local expansions, Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar has been slow to update the status of its move into Las Vegas, but newly filed paperwork indicates one location is back on track.

The casual-dining franchise created in Springfield, Missouri, more than a decade ago will become an anchor tenant on the Las Vegas Boulevard side of the Town Square retail center.

Moving into the next annex named The Landing, a short distance to the north of Fry’s Electronics and Total Wine & More, Big Whiskey's will join a Cafe Rio Mexican Grill, Sweet Poké’s sushi burritos, and from San Diego, The Broken Yolk Café. A handful of vacant spaces are also looking for more dining tenants.

Big Whiskey's large corner space has recently filed permits for the construction makeover, currently assigned an estimated budget of $850,000. Last year, franchise owner Calant Capital LLC had voiced hopes to ready by this summer, a now optimistic deadline. A second location promised for “western Henderson” has yet to be confirmed.

On the future menu, large portions of familiar sport bar favorites including New York strip steak, Bourbon-glazed salmon, and “Caribbean jerk chops,” served in an atmosphere suitable for “families with kids, groups of friends who come to watch a game, a business lunch or a couple out for the evening.”

Befitting its name, each bar also stocks more than 100 whiskeys, plus keep 20 beers on tap.
