Terrible Herbst, a successful privately-held gas station company, is planning a move into the dining domain with a supper club across the street from Allegiant Stadium, according to recent coverage in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The Review-Journal cites paperwork submitted to Clark County by Terrible Herbst with construction plans for a 16,000 sq. ft. dining space. The proposed supper club will occupy a portion of the first floor of a four-story parking garage planned by Terrible Herbst, next to the company’s corporate offices, warehouse, and an outpost of its chain of convenience stores.
The plans depict a restaurant with a main dining area, bar, and two private dining rooms, along with a kitchen and offices. An outdoor dining area is also planned.
The location will dovetail nicely with plans approved earlier this year for the Las Vegas Stadium District. The Stadium District plans entail the transformation of the industrial area around Allegiant Stadium into a booming, transportation-accessible entertainment district.
It could be said, in fact, that Terrible Herbst’s submitted plans represent the first move toward making the planned district a reality. Further steps will bw required in the transformation into a bustling tourist area with fun happenings like food truck events and music festival.
According to coverage by KTNV Las Vegas, these changes include re-developing the 1.25 square-mile area’s grid pattern with smaller blocks and fewer dead ends. Ideas like pedestrian pathways, community gardens, pop-up outdoor dining locations, and art installations have been floated.
What Now Las Vegas was unable to reach a representative of Terrible Herbst for comment on the plans. Dates for completion of construction and the opening of the supper club are unknown.
