No word if you’ll need a secret word or phrase to gain entry to its private room, but Henderson’s first modern speakeasy has plans to debut an upscale 1920s experience at Lake Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve.
Newly filed paperwork reveals The Speakeasy will move into two-story, 6,440-square-foot space, formerly home to the Black Pepper Grill, Brooklyn’s, and previous tenant Proof Tavern, shuttered since earlier this year.
Overseen by Joseph Serrano, general manager of The Pub located a few steps away at Montelago Village, the new operators are also behind fellow Village restaurants Mimi & Coco’s and Luna Rossa.
The Speakeasy hopes to take over Proof’s legacy gaming license for 15 gaming machines and create an upstairs cigar lounge, with access to two outdoor patios and its own bar.
Promising a “classic food and beverage program,” future opening hours are planned for 11 a.m. to midnight daily, closing at 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
