Houston Crosta is wasting no time expanding his hot chicken sandwich concept and new details confirm his scheduled move to the Arts District will create a family-friendly tribute to local sports teams. Houston’s Hot Chicken takes over the prominent corner space at 1201 S. Main Street with a 2,464-square-foot sports bar that plans to display signed memorabilia from local athletes, plus decor celebrating Las Vegas sports teams including the Raiders, Aviators, Aces, Golden Knights, and Lights. Already equipped with a distinctive curved front entrance, one section of the restaurant will welcome families, while the adult lounge area features its own bar.

The sports bar sits between the Cream Me Ice Creamery on Main Street and Yu-Or-Mi Sushi Bar on California Avenue. Later this fall, local institution Freed’s Bakery is on track to debut a retail-only outlet next door.

While Houston’s hasn’t revealed a potential menu or possible opening date, its Green Valley Parkway outpost in Henderson focuses on sandwiches and tenders. Prepared with heat levels ranging from zero to “liftoff,” waivers must be signed by diners attempting to eat its food challenge-worthy chicken pieces spiced with 2 million Scoville Heat Units of fieriness.

Still in the works, an announced expansion to West Ann Road and into Fashion Show mall on the Strip. Crosta is also co-owner of southwest sandwich restaurant Egg Sammie, currently closed while it undergoes a remodel.
