The changes keep coming to Tivoli Village, and already this summer, a new brewery plans to open, a coffee shop goes through renovation, and a two other restaurants look to fall to open.
Hop Nuts Brewing arrives in late August, wrapping up work on the patio this week. Once open, the 1,389-square-foot site that replaces the Chillspot by SasaSweets store on the western end of the outdoor retail and dining hub plans to offer a taproom serving only their brews, created downtown. The compact taproom’s lounge will be large enough to accommodate 27 customers inside, with 12 stools planned for the curved bar. An enclosed 447-square-foot outdoor patio will be roomy enough for an additional 18 customers.
Touted beers include The Harry Porter, Omniscient Imperial Stout, and The Golden Knight, a Belgian golden strong ale, as well as unique brews just for this location.
The non-smoking brewery also plans to have a daily happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m.
Mexican cuisine from El Dorado Cantina now looks to October for a second location in Las Vegas. The restaurant takes over the former Leticia’s space at the outdoor shopping mall. The Mexican restaurant has its original 24-hour location next to Sapphire Gentleman’s Club.
Leticia’s abruptly closed in October and has since opened locations at Santa Fe Station and Fiesta Henderson. That restaurant replaced Cantina Laredo after it departed the shopping center in 2017.
The owners of Kuyas, an oyster- and martini-focused restaurant from Hawaii, cut ties with chef Jimi Lasquete and swapped out the restaurant for the Asian-inspired seafood restaurant SeaBream with chef Jill Montinola from Miami’s Seaspice in the kitchen. It takes over the former Kabuki space that has been vacant since 2017 with a fall opening.
And local coffee staple Leoné Café closes for a renovation. Tivoli Village reports that Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Badass Coffee, and Art Coffee Bus will pour coffee every morning as well as on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings during August.
