Located at 107 N. Fourth Street at the corner of Fremont, the burger fortress has taken over the 3,400-square-foot Las Vegas Harley-Davidson retail space. It’s also replaced the vintage Trader Bills sign with its brand’s regal font. According to the Review-Journal, renovations to the space were projected at $3 million.
The restaurant is slated to open sometime this month. Peeking through the windows earlier this week, the space seemed nearly complete, with crews still working in the kitchen.
This will be the second White Castle in Las Vegas. The first opened in January 2015 on the Strip at Casino Royale (the myth of a White Castle in the 80s was debunked by Vegas Seven columnist James P. Reza). The demand was so high during its grand opening that the restaurant had to close temporarily to restock its wet, gray steamed burgers.
In better burger news, Flippin’ Good, the Fremont East burger and shake joint which closed for renovations in August, is nearing completion of its remodel. It’s scheduled to reopen this month.
