Big changes headed to The Linq join even more updates to The Linq Promenade, as the casino floor begins a series of phased updates ahead of the 2019 arrival of Kind Heaven, a $100 million, 100,000-square-foot addition to the floors above.
Replacing the recently departed Tag Sports Bar and Squeeze juice bar, the first phase will move The Linq’s race and sports book into this plywood filled area. Informally known on paperwork as “R&S,” a raised “upper deck” bar will face comfortable “man caves” designed for gambling and drinking guests who can opt to self-serve their own beers from a selection of 28 different drafts.
Next to the bar, the casual “Tailgate” dining concept will feature a former working food truck as its main attraction. Stripped of its engine and machinery, the stationary truck will provide meals to its main dining room and the new patio, located where Tag and Squeeze formerly shared outdoor seating.
A few steps to the west, a later phase will add the tentatively named, “The Bar at Linq.” Taking over the blank frontage of the resort, right on Las Vegas Boulevard, visitors will be able to enjoy shaded, outdoor patio seating facing Caesars Palace across the Strip.
And deeper into The Linq Promenade, work will begin shortly on creating the unannounced Chez Marcel Cafe, located opposite Sprinkles cupcakes. Little has been confirmed about the 5,962-square-foot restaurant, but with room enough for 137 inside and an estimated construction budget of $2,327,009, the operators have confidence in launching a project with no previous brand identity.
