Located at the intersection of Arizona Street and Nevada Way in Boulder City, the former home of Edie’s Flowers is currently being transformed into an exciting new restaurant. Hangar 502, a dual-concept restaurant featuring both a deli and an elevated bar and grill, will open in the space in Spring 2024.
Behind Hangar 502 are Las Vegas locals James and Becky Hughes, who are working to bring the building, which has been empty for a few years, back to life with a culinary concept delicious enough to make the trek out from Vegas for.
“Our goal is to get people to make the drive,” James Hughes told What Now on Tuesday. “We want to food to bring them out here and the service and the experience to bring them back.”
Hangar 502 will have two entrances. On one side will be a delicatessen with a seven-seat sandwich counter, serving up traditional soups, salads, sandwiches, and charcuterie trays with quality breads and ingredients. On the other, a bar and grill will serve beer, cocktails, and elevated bar food. The space’s décor will be inspired by Hughes’s background of military service, with seating for 90 people, including an indoor/outdoor bar.
“It’s going to be great place for meats and cheeses by the flight, and handcrafted sandwiches with great bread. And you can get a beer and catch a sports game, too,” said Hughes. “We’re looking to create an experience for everybody.”
