Red Rock Resort to debut Restaurant Row

21 Aug, 2014

Station Casinos will spend more than $35 million on renovations to its Red Rock Resort flagship property, including the creation of a Restaurant Row and four new restaurants. 

Construction began last month at the resort, located 10 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip in Summerlin, and enhancements are expected to appeal to both tourists and locals.

"This is the crown jewel in our family, and it's really important that the guest feels that, no matter what space they're in," said Lori Nelson, vice president of corporate communications at Station Casinos. "It was time to invest in making sure this destination looks beautiful, provides a lot of entertainment offerings and gives our guests another reason to check us out."

The renovation process includes a variety of projects, most notably Restaurant Row.

Nelson described the resort's clientele as foodies and said "they're looking for what's new and what's exciting."

Mercadito Red Rock, which opened June 23, serves Mexican food featuring local and seasonal ingredients and a beverage menu with an extensive tequila list.

Hearthstone Kitchen & Cellar, managed by the Light Group, will have a small-plates menu with seasonal and sustainable ingredients. 

Additionally, a casual Italian restaurant will replace the existing Terra Rossa Italian restaurant.

Finally, a noodle bar, a smaller and more intimate venue than the other restaurants, will have a menu with noodle bowls, dim sum and specialty fried rice. 

All restaurants will be built along Red Rock Resort's Charleston Boulevard casino entrance with outdoor accessibility and patios. A pedestrian walkway will link these restaurants with two of the resort's existing restaurants, Lucille's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que and Yard House. Red Rock will also renovate its steakhouse, T-bones Chophouse. 

Also part of the renovation, 26 of the resort's suites will be upgraded, and the Spa at Red Rock will undergo a renovation. 

The new construction and developments at Red Rock will be staggered over the next several months and are expected to be completed and operational by the fourth quarter of 2014.

However, over the past year, other noticeable changes around the resort have been happening. Lucille's opened, the hotel lobby and Lucky Bar were renovated and the former Cherry nightclub was retrofitted into event space.
