Alex Tuch, William Karlsson, Deryk Engelland, Reilly Smith and Shea Theodore are teaming up with celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck to create a sports bar called “Wolfgang Puck Players Locker.”
The opportunity to be a partner in the first-ever sports restaurant in Vegas is something I couldn’t pass up. I am very excited to work side by side with one of the greatest chefs in the world, Wolfgang Puck. -Alex Tuch
The restaurant is taking over the old “Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill” in Downtown Summerlin in between California Pizza Kitchen and Shake Shack. There will be a brand new menu including “traditional sports fare”as well as an “innovative new beverage program” which will surely include both Engelland and Ryan Reaves’ beers.
We are thrilled to be partnering with members of the Vegas Golden Knights here in Las Vegas, the new hockey capital of the world. We have created a unique and one-of-a-kind sports dining experience around great food and the best players in the NHL! -Wolfgang Puck
The restaurant is being re-designed around a “floor-to-ceiling display of more than 100 custom glass lockers.” Each of the five Golden Knights will have their own dedicated locker.
There will also be two outdoor patios, one dog-friendly, as well as an expansive bar area, and a private dining room named “The Players Lounge” which is expected to host the five VGK owners consistently.
Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill will remain open until mid-January, at which time it will undergo a brief, one-week remodel before re-opening its doors as the new Wolfgang Puck Players Locker. Additional details will be announced in the coming months. -Press Release
Ken, I had high hopes for this place, now I’m VERY concerned. As a VGK super fan and avid sports viewer, all I want to know is how many TVs, how big are the TVs, visibility of TVs, who decides what game will have the volume on, will someone please teach EVERYONE who works there how to change the channel and find a game that a customer requests. None of that other stuff means ANYTHING. Glass lockers? Who cares? With only one week to remodel, there is no way they can create a proper sports viewing venue. I hope I’m wrong.
Some people have nothing to say unless it’s negative.
You’re taking this waay too seriously, dude.
I’m in, I live close by, watch the Knights, have a good brew, what else you need in life !! Go Knights !!
What? No Oxford comma? APA 6!
This is the best news I’ve heard in years. What could be better than our amazing team the golden knights partnering with one of the best chefs in the world
In downtown Summerlin no less creating a sense of
Community. We’re so excited and we can’t wait!!!
