Since 2017, Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar had plans to bring at least two locations to Las Vegas. The casual American restaurant with roots in Springfield, Missouri, plans to open its first Las Vegas location in the former Pot Liquor space at Town Square in February.
The heart of the restaurant, a very large bar, features more than 150 whiskeys on the shelves and 19 beers on tap. At the front, accordion windows overlook the valet circle at the front, while treated whiskey barrels line the space. Drinks named for the Vegas Golden Knights, UNLV Runnin’ Rebels, and future Las Vegas Raiders make the menu, and the possibility of whiskey on tap could bring the cocktail program to the next level.
In the rear of the restaurant, Big Whiskey’s retains Pot Liquor American flag on the wall and incorporates it into a private dining room.
Dubbed “not a sports bar but celebrating sports,” Big Whiskey’s will be family friendly with seven dishes for the kids and a jukebox for music on the fly.
Big Whiskey’s also features a menu of barbecue made in house, as well as pretzel bites and white queso dip, Buffalo wings, salads, wraps, soups, and heartier choices such as New York strip steaks, Bourbon glazed salmon and Caribbean jerk chops.
