Rowdy restaurant and bar Dick’s Last Resort is on track to become the largest ground-floor tenant at downtown's Neonopolis, expanding from its 13-year residency at the Excalibur on the Strip and bringing its “Sassy Staff,” live entertainment, and “margs & mules” to Fremont Street.
Replacing the shuttered Cannabition Museum, the 10,212-square-foot venue will add a 1,070-square-foot outdoor patio on the Neonopolis courtyard, across from the Toy Shack store, next door to Banger Brewing, and a short distance from its closest rival in size, the 6,400-square-foot Denny’s.
Famed for its raucous atmosphere, self-described as “wacky, sports bar meets dive bar twist,” the Dick’s Last Resort chain has grown to 11 national locations since 1985 and last year was bought by the largest strip club operator in the world, the Las Vegas-based Deja Vu Services Inc.
At Neonopolis, the outdoor patio will include room for 70, with 13 seats at a snaking bar that stretches inside and adds another 48 seats. Once customers navigate the hostess stand and merchandise area, 244 seats in the open plan dining room face a small stage and the nightly entertainment. At Excalibur, the Big Bang Dueling Pianos perform from 9 p.m., “til Late!” a loose schedule expected to continue downtown.
On the future menu, generous portions of pub grub, including the over-sized “Macho Nachos,” fried alligator bites, wings, brisket platters, the low country boil created with shrimp, mussels, snow crab and Andouille sausage, and continuing the obnoxious-comedy theme, a “Crybaby” vegan burger designed for “sensitive” and “tree-hugger” diners.
Currently making its way through the City of Las Vegas approval process, the restaurant is not expected to debut until early 2021.
