Four new tenants are headed to the eastern upper level of the Grand Canal Shoppes, creating a quirky corridor of cheap, or indulgent, dining and drinks.
Original Donut Bar, not to be confused with Santiago Campa’s award winning Donut Bar on Downtown's Sixth Street, is officially coming soon to the Strip, moving inside the former Canyon Beachwear retail store.
Featuring doughnuts for grown ups, the compact space will include a bar and a collection of liquor-infused doughnuts, creating an environment where every hour is happy hour, according to the restaurant. The project is yet to reveal a future menu, or possible serving times.
The bar faces The X Pot, a high-tech Asian fusion restaurant specializing in Sichuan hot pots, robot helpers, and an environment enhanced by 360-degree projections and interactive light shows. The luxury concept is expected to be ready soon.
Aiming to be complete by the end of March, X Pot neighbor Kamu Ultra Karaoke has installed 40 private singing suites and a quirky menu from L.A. chef Chris Oh, including a $100 cup o’ noodle served with sliced A5 wagyu sirloin and foie gras, plus caviar n’ chips prepared with Ossetra caviar and salmon ikura.
And counting down the days to a debut, The Alley is in the final stages of remodeling a corner retail space across from SushiSamba. The Taiwan-born and now global franchise boasts it will “take tea to a new level of sophistication.” Well known for its creative design and drink presentations, the menu of milk and bubble teas includes its own blend of sugar cane syrup and house-made pearl-shaped tapioca.
