The LINQ and its upcoming High Roller observation wheel are undoubtedly Vegas’ latest game changers, upping the ante for Strip-central dining, entertainment and shopping. In advance of its spring launch, the High Roller’s light shows officially kick off tomorrow just as several more anticipated venues open.

Adding another wow factor, the first lighting is another key milestone in the wheel’s construction, and its dynamic light shows will color the iconic city skyline night after night. The new photo ops will be icing on the cake for this phase of new openings, ready to entice customers in with a convenient new valet, beer, chocolate and shiny, pretty things.

Yard House: who doesn’t love this beer hot spot? The dishes are always good (and has a surprisingly refreshing variety a notch above bar food) and the many different brews are always ice cold. Not only does Yard House’s patio overlook the glittering High Roller, its location across from Brooklyn Bowl make this a favorite already.

Bella Scarpa: From stilettos to wedges, trendy women’s footwear is the star here. Bella Scarpa features styles inspired by the latest runway looks, but at a more affordable price, plus handbags and jewelry essential for completing flashy looks.

Ghirardelli: Because chocolate and ice cream are basic necessities of American life, this is one we’re really excited about. Famed gourmet chocolate brand Ghirardelli hits the sweet spot jackpot with a huge menu of sundaes, shakes and floats (plus candy to go!). The cooling frozen treats will be especially handy after a summer ride on the High Roller. Extra whipped cream please!

Ruby Blue: A girlie girl’s dream, Ruby Blue stocks accessories, jewelry and novelty items that range from innocently playful to completely blinged out. At this ultra-feminine boutique, pick up clothing and bachelorette gifts or accessorize for a night out.

Chilli Beans: “Eye-ing” the latest sunglasses trends is easy here. Brazilian-based eyewear company Chilli Beans features an array of shades that range from sleek and classic to eccentric. The best part? Shoppers are encouraged to try on every pair. Can we say “selfie”?

As these join existing tenants such as Purple Zebra daiquiri bar and Chayo Mexican Restaurant + Tequila Bar, the prime blend of retail and dining is just a hint of what’s to come. Several more are set to unroll during the phased launches, so look for Sprinkles Cupcakes, Goorin Brothers and BLVD Cocktail Co. to open their doors soon. Brooklyn Bowl kicks off March 8 and already has an incredible lineup of concerts booked through the summer. The Academy of Country Music’s 2nd Annual Party For A Cause Festival welcomes superstars Keith Urban and Rascal Flatts at The LINQ for the two-day fundraiser. Held April 4-5, the event features several stages, food trucks, non-stop live music from a roster of country headliners.

Though The LINQ is situated in between the connecting Flamingo and Quad hotels, a dedicated LINQ district valet and parking area are both officially open, making it easy for shoppers and diners eager to explore the space.

  1. Very nice to hear that you make a good progress. I am am really looking forward to be the first who takes the very best pictures of Las Vegas at night right out of the High Roller… Do you already know the opening times of the High Roller and the LINQ?

    Hello there. The wheel’s opening day and hours of operation have not been announced yet, but they will be any minute! The LINQ district is now open, with each venue having its own hours of operation.
