Yard House Opens 2nd Las Vegas venue at new location inside Red Rock Casino
To celebrate the Grand Opening, Yard House hosted a private party at its second location at Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa on Friday night, June 4. Larger than its location at Town Square on the south end of the strip, the 13,515 square-foot restaurant and bar, which faces Charleston Avenue on the west side of town, features both indoor and outdoor patio seating that can accommodate 557 guests and a striking interior that showcases a contrasting mix of warm woods, stainless steel accents, a signature oval bar encircled by tap handles, original artwork commissioned by Orange County artist Jerome Gastaldi and a state-of-the-art sound and visual system.
The casual, inviting atmosphere is equally matched by the venue's offerings of awesome food from an extensive menu of savory American fusion fare, boasts the largest selection of beer (130 taps), and the most friendly, accommodating servers and staff you will ever want to meet.
At the invitation only event, guests were treated to complimentary servings from the diverse menu (including vegetarian friendly dishes) that won't burn a hole in your wallet. Samples of Yard House's mouth watering cuisine included such items as ginger crusted salmon with wasabi mashed potatoes topped with peanut sauce, julienne snow peas and carrots; seared ahi tuna; crab cakes topped with passion fruit sauce made of papaya, mango, cilantro and chutney; four cheese pizza, fire cracker (chicken) wings, grilled romaine salad and much more.
