Southern California’s nearly 75-year-old diner eatery NORMS Restaurants in early summer 2024 will expand to Las Vegas, with a location at 4605 W Charleston Blvd, according to its website.
The space used to house an Applebee’s and sits adjacent Raising Cane’s, according to a ground lease listing through Newmark.
Vegas’s NORMS will be open 24/7 and will serve beer and wine, with a chance for liquor, the company’s new CEO Eric Wyatt earlier this year told FSR Magazine. There could also be gaming at the counter — think video poker or slots, according to the report.
“We’re just really looking to put NORMS Restaurants on steroids out there, in a positive way,” Wyatt told FSR, “because we believe that’s what will resonate with locals and tourists.”
NORMS is going all in on Vegas. Wyatt says there’s room for “at least four or five more locations when this one does well as we know it’s going to do.”
Like the SoCal locations that came before it, the first Vegas NORMS will undergo a makeover to give the shuttered Applebee’s space a Googie architecture-esque design.
Founded 1949, NORMS offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night dining. It has 22 locations in Los Angeles, Orange, and Riverside counties.
