Brewery and restaurant to open in southwest Las Vegas

Updated October 24, 2018 - 11:55 pm

Keri Kelli, who has two Aces & Ales locations, is getting into the brewing business. Kelli has announced plans for his first brewery at The Bend, the new retail center near the 215 Beltway and Durango Drive. Slated to open late next year, it’s expected to include a 275-seat bar and restaurant with two dog-friendly patios. Kelli says his beer will be “created and produced in ways that are as earth-friendly and sustainable as possible.” That includes recycling, composting and repurposing spent grain as animal feed for local farmers.

Celebrating with De Niro

Nobu Matsuhisa and business partner Robert De Niro were in town over the weekend to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace. The pair hosted a party Friday evening in the Nobu Villa atop the hotel tower, and on Saturday, the chef treated guests to a seven-course caviar dinner, debuting several caviar-themed dishes being added to the menu.

No-go for Vandal?

It looks like Chris Santos’ Vandal will not be coming to The Palms. The restaurant’s development was part of a partnership between Red Rock Resorts, which owns the Palms, and Tao Group that has been dissolved. For more details on the fallout, see John Katsilometes’ column.
