Station Casinos plans to build Las Vegas’ newest restaurant row

Visitors to Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa, located in the northwest corner of Las Vegas near breathtaking Red Rock Canyon, can look forward to several new dining experiences and other enhancements later in 2014.

Station Casinos has announced a $35 million plan that involves renovations both inside and outside the resort. This includes the creation of a “restaurant row,” which will be situated along the property’s Charleston Boulevard-facing entrance.

Intended to add significant vitality to the property, four new eateries are slated – each of which will boast a patio for al fresco dining and water features.

One of city’s leading hospitality companies, The Light Group, known for operating numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs on the Las Vegas Strip, will helm a hip, farmer’s market-type place offering small plates, handcrafted beers and an extensive wine list. There will also be a contemporary Italian restaurant and a noodle bar concept. Plus, the Sandoval brothers of Chicago are bringing a branch of their award-winning Mercadito restaurants to Sin City…so ready your taste buds for amazing Mexican food and margaritas.

All of these new restaurants will be linked by a pedestrian walkway that will join up with two of the resort’s existing venues: Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que and Yard House.

In addition, a “connector” with additional parking and a drop-off area is going to be built between Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa and The Shops at Summerlin. The Shops at Summerlin is a $391 million urban center currently under construction at the south end of the resort on the other side of Summerlin Centre Drive. The 1.6 million-square-foot project, which will house 125 shops and restaurants in an open-air environment, is on tap to open in fall 2014.

Capping off Station Casinos’ investment announcement for the resort, T-Bones Chophouse, 26 high-end suites and the 25,000-square-foot Spa at Red Rock will all be getting major makeovers as well.

Given its absolutely stunning location, beautiful architecture and already impressive amenities, these new developments only mean Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa will continue to differentiate itself from other hotels and further surpass expectations for 2014 and beyond.


I’m a Las Vegas native. By profession, I write at Mostly about the city’s hotels, but on other topics – gaming and transportation – too. I really love staying at hotels. And the ones here are among the biggest and best in the world. Some key things I’ve learned: Resort fees are inescapable (frustrating but true), a friendly attitude at the front desk may score you a great view and over-the-top room amenities – bath butlers, Japanese tea service, menus with “intimate” items – do exist. What else should you know about me? Well, I’m comfortable at a blackjack table. And I like eating late-night pancakes in hotel coffee shops. A lot. Follow Renee on Google+.
