Harmon Corner found a replacement for the sports-lodge inspired Twin Peaks breastaurant, shuttered since June, filling a substantial 8,260 square feet with a very familiar local name.
Sugar Factory filed permits to demolish the two-story space, already equipped with a patio facing the Las Vegas Strip, right at the intersection with Harmon Avenue.
Sugar Factory joins other family favorite chains, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. and Rainforest Café on the third floor, filling an initial estimation of $225,000 to cover the interior demolition that hints at a pricey future makeover, still to be officially announced by the parent company.
Twin Peaks continues to operate daily on Eastern Avenue in Henderson, offering dine-in service, to-go orders, and delivery options for its casual American fare. Launched in 2013 on Las Vegas Boulevard, the restaurant included a 39-foot rock climbing wall, stuffed bears, elk, deer, and bison, 87 TV screens and cleavage-baring waitstaff.
Famed for its elaborate desserts, over-the-top cocktails and celebrity appearances, the Sugar Factory’s flagship local outpost fills 12,500 square feet at Fashion Show mall, opening in 2017 and operating a retail component alongside the chandeliered Sugar Factory American Brasserie and a working, 14-seat carousel positioned on the upper floor.
The global brand first arrived in Las Vegas at the Paris Las Vegas resort back in 2011, before exiting four years later. A Town Square outpost and the Sugar Factory Goblet Bar at Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile Shops have also permanently closed. A possible debut date for the latest expansion has not been revealed.
