The Arts District may be about to say hello to a new Japanese-style cocktail bar concept. Plans for cocktail-and-beer concept Bar Ginza are set to go before the Las Vegas Planning Commission next week. The bar would open at 1301 S Main St.
What Now Las Vegas confirmed the news with owner David Riccardi on Thursday morning. Riccardi declined to comment in detail on the project at this time, saying only that the bar would seat about forty people and that a business partner attached to the project formerly ran the Nobu at what was then the Hard Rock Hotel.
Paperwork submitted to the Planning Commission shows that Bar Ginzu plans to operate seven days a week, from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. It is expected to employ about 10 people.
Further details about the menu and branding are unavailable at this time. The name (we assume) refers to Ginza, a district in Tokyo famous for high class shopping and cocktail bars.
The location on Main St is located near several other dining and drinking locations, including Misterio Mezcal Bar, Golden Fog Coffee, and HUDL Brewing Company. Stay tuned for more news as the story of this local brand develops.
