Metallic gold paint on the walls and lobster rolls on the menu will replace classic arcade machines when Vegas Lounge & Bar debuts at 723 Broad Ripple Ave.

Described as a “high-end” nightclub by owner Tanya Davis, the Vegas Lounge & Bar is set to succeed One Up Arcade, which opened in November 2018 and closed permanently in July 2020.

Davis, a first-time restaurant or bar owner, said she wanted to bring a visual opulence associated with Las Vegas to Broad Ripple.

“It will be a sight to see,” she said. “When someone enters the living room, they will be overwhelmed. “

Davis said Vegas Lounge & Bar could welcome its first customers before the arrival of 2022.

“I would love to have a party for New Years Eve,” she said.

The nightclub, which is slated to host live music and spoken word performances, is designed to attract audiences interested in “going out, having fun and having fun,” Davis said.

Reflecting on his own visits to Las Vegas, Davis said the Vegas Lounge & Bar at Broad Ripple aspires to emulate Drai’s Beachclub and Nightclub which opened in 2012 as part of the former Bill’s Gamblin ‘Hall & Casino. Saloon. This month, Drai’s will host performances by rappers Nelly (December 11), 50 Cent (December 18) and Rick Ross (December 31) in Las Vegas.

The building where the Vegas Lounge & Bar will open near the intersection of College and Broad Ripple avenues is operated by Kosene and Kosene Inc.

Davis said she wasn’t necessarily looking to place Vegas Lounge & Bar on Broad Ripple, but the opportunity to purchase One Up Arcade’s full liquor license sealed the deal.

“When this happened on my desk, I thought, ‘Hey, I have to do this,’ said Davis, who predicts that a team of 10 employees will be working at the Vegas Lounge & Bar.

Chef Eric Harris is planning a menu that Davis says won’t include “typical burgers and cheeseburgers.”

“We’re going to do what’s nice and delicious,” Davis said of the food at Vegas Lounge & Bar.

Zouk Group Sports and Gaming Bar RedTail Adds Versatility to Resorts World Las Vegas Wed, 24 Nov 2021 10:00:50 +0000

Ayu Dayclub, Zouk Nightclub and Fuhu anchor the vibrant nightlife district of the Zouk Group on the southeast side of Resorts World. But if you do the night right, it should start at RedTail, Zouk’s pre-game playground designed to get the party going.

A “fully integrated social gaming bar,” RedTail spans just over 6,000 square feet, enticing patrons with a plethora of colorful entertainment and retro art options. Sports fans feel right at home with on-site sports betting and enough TVs to catch the action from any angle.

Beer Pong at RedTail

“[But] we wanted to be a more fun environment than a typical bookmaker, ”said Michael Waltman, Zouk Group Executive Director of Operations.

This is why arcade basketball, giant Jenga, life-size table tennis, beer pong and other games dominate the space. It’s an inclusive experience with a variety of activities, but maybe best of all is people-watching.

“People will come to enjoy RedTail without intending to go to Zouk [Nightclub]but watching all this activity for them is a great night, ”says Waltman.

The gourmet pub-based menu is also a draw, with a selection focused on wings and burgers curated by the company’s executive chef, Joseph Elevado, formerly of Andrea’s at Encore and Social House. It also includes vegan options as well as over 10 specialty cocktails and over 20 beers brewed by Zouk’s beverage team.

Waltman says college-aged adults appreciate RedTail as much as those in their 40s and 50s, and it’s no accident. Zouk’s other offerings nearby serve as a revolving door, bouncing guests from location to location, experience to experience. “It was part of the master plan,” he says.

The music lineup also runs through, he says, as the crowd-warming DJs for Zedd and Tiësto turn to RedTail “because they’re guys who get the piece. From night to night you might have a different audience, [and] for us it is very important that we do not just keep the same. The venue should be flexible, depending on who is in town.

Staying on top of trends, Waltman says visitors who returned to Las Vegas before the nightclubs fully reopened were looking to create their own experience within their group. That’s why RedTail offers three private karaoke rooms, where customers can sing their favorites from a selection of over 40,000 songs. The sliding air walls also allow opening into a large room that can accommodate up to 30 people.

At this rate, RedTail could become your meeting point in Vegas where you can start and end.

RED TAIL Monday and Thursday, 4 p.m. to midnight; Friday, noon-midnight; Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to midnight. Resorts World, 702-676-7000.
