Hoping to be up and running within four weeks, the long vacant and extremely visible Harley-Davidson Las Vegas Cafe on the Strip has new operators that conveniently work nearby.

A temporary exterior banner will very soon be replaced by permanent signage announcing the arrival of Tex Mex & Tequila, a bar and casual restaurant from the creators of the Red Palms Mediterranean restaurant and Smokey’s Bistro & Bar at the Hawaiian Marketplace. Both ventures sit less than a quarter of a mile from the Mexican dining concept.

Closed since October 2016, the Harley-Davidson-themed space included an indoor mezzanine, room enough inside for 265 diners, and a highly advantageous patio positioned right on a corner of Las Vegas Boulevard, unmissable to a steady stream of pedestrians using the escalators to cross Harmon Avenue.

Gindi Capital purchased the land beneath the cafe, the Hawaiian Marketplace, and Red Palms earlier this year, at a reported cost of $172 million for the 9.5-acre plot. The new owners announced the footprint will eventually connect with their adjacent Showcase Mall to help create “a new flagship retail, entertainment and dining experience.”

Tex Mex & Tequila has yet to announce a future menu or potential opening hours.
