Chef Wolfgang Puck’s collaboration with five members of the Vegas Golden Knights brings a renovated look to the former Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at Downtown Summerlin. The new Wolfgang Puck Players Locker took about two weeks to transform into the restaurant with a casual menu, room for 250 diners, and liquor lockers for fans to rent.
Vegas Golden Knights players Alex Tuch, William Karlsson, Deryk Engelland, Shea Theodore, and Reilly Smith have their own name checks on the menu, both with food and drink. For example, Smith’s Canadian heritage gets representation from poutine, while Karlsson’s love of vegan food shows up as a vegan burger. And Puck teases that fans never know whether the players will show up at the restaurant.
The liquor lockers provide the perfect excuse for Golden Knights players to hang out. The space showcases more than 100 custom glass lockers with their own floor-to-ceiling display. While the chef and players each have their own filled with their favorite high-end liquors, celebrities such as former NBA center Shaquille O’Neal, NHL great Wayne Gretzky, and Vegas Golden Knights owner Bill Foley each have their own custom lockers.
The space features a private dining with its own side patio for up to 65 people seated, another semi-private dining room with space for 24, a patio for 68, and another lounge patio with room for 35. One of those patios is dog friendly.
