The duo behind Break Room 86, Black Rabbit Rose, No Vacancy, Good Times at Davey Wayne’s, and La Descarga marks the Houstons’ first Las Vegas venture and the largest nightclub within their portfolio.
On The Record sits off the casino floor, across from the entrance to the Park Theater. The space fills 11,000 square feet with a speakeasy atmosphere spread over three rooms indoors and outdoors.
Jonnie Houston tells The Hollywood Reporter that a record acts as the entrance to the nightclub, with a secret entrance and all.
Also still to come, another nightclub estimated at a substantial 54,546 square feet. That would make it bigger than the 38,000-square-foot Light at Mandalay Bay yet smaller than the 62,000-square-foot Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub at the Cosmopolitan.
In the meantime, chef Roy Choi and the Sydell Group, the partners with MGM Resorts behind NoMad and the Park MGM, departed the Line Hotel in Koreatown. There he ran Pot Lobby Bar, Pot Cafe, and Commissary.
Choi, of course, still plans to open a restaurant at the Park MGM this fall. An interview with Bloomberg dubbed the restaurant“Best Friend.” A space with that name is confirmed to be on the way to the Park MGM, but has yet to be announced by Choi. Back in January, the famed L.A.-based restaurateur promised the venture “will feel like Ktown when you walk in and I plan on filling the casino with stinky delicious smells and lots of double dipping. Ha.”
Also on the docket, Noodle, an Asian noodle restaurant, will launch later this year.
