The restaurant made its Las Vegas debut in 2008 at Town Square Las Vegas.
“We have been looking to open another location in Las Vegas, and Red Rock was at the top of our list,” said Harald Herrmann, the restaurant chain’s chief executive officer. “The Las Vegas market has been extremely successful for us and having two restaurants on different sides of town will better serve the community.”
Yard House serves American fusion food and has 130 taps of beer.
The glass-enclosed keg room at the Red Rock restaurant, which houses as many as 600 kegs and some 1,000 gallons of beer at any given time, will be custom designed to allow restaurant guests to walk through the area. Yard House will also feature exterior patio seating adjacent to the existing water fountain pools located on the Charleston Boulevard side of Red Rock Resort.
Industry publications, including Nation’s Restaurant News and Cheers Magazine, have lauded Yard House as having the “Best Beer List.”
The closing of Salt Lick ends the Austin, Texas restaurant’s Las Vegas experiment. The location at Red Rock, which opened in April 2006, was the first Salt Lick away from Texas. Station Casinos opened a second Salt Lick inside the Santa Fe Station a few years ago, but the location was closed in favor of Stoney’s North 40 country western bar and dance hall.
