A new restaurant and live entertainment venue is in the works from reality TV star Richard Rawlings, Gas Monkey Las Vegas.
Rawlings is star of “Fast N’ Loud” and “Garage Rehab” on the Discovery Channel.
Hot on the heels of announcing a new Gas Monkey location in Dallas, Texas, Rawlings now has his sights set on an even bigger prize, Las Vegas.
Gas Monkey Garage is Rawlings’ auto shop in Dallas. The company specializes in creating and remodeling custom cars.
Rawlings has tried a series of concepts in the restaurant and live entertainment realm.
There was a Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill (Rawlings is no longer affiliated following a nasty legal battle), and his Gas Monkey Live closed in May 2020. Richard Rawlings’ Garage closed in March 2019.
Specifics about a location for the new Gas Monkey Las Vegas aren’t available yet. Give us a minute.
Gas Monkey Dallas has a rooftop bar, an outdoor stage, food (barbeque and burgers) and drinks, of course. We’d expect similar offerings in Las Vegas.
Rawlings says he expects to open “25 or 40” of these concepts, and he aspires to be “the next House of Blues, Planet Hollywood or Hard Rock Cafe.”
Vegas is all about lofty dreams, and we’re always up for something new.
Expect more details soon, and best guess is Gas Monkey opens in Las Vegas in 2022.
