Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill to Partner with Athletes on Ultimate Sports Restaurant

For the first time ever, one globally renowned chef will partner with five globally renowned—and active—professional athletes to introduce the ultimate sports restaurant.

Wolfgang Puck will team up with Alex Tuch, William Karlsson, Deryk Engelland, Reilly Smith and Shea Theodore to create Wolfgang Puck Players Locker. Expected to open by the end of January, Wolfgang Puck Players Locker will combine sensational culinary and sports experiences.

The goal of this All-Star lineup is to create an inclusive, family friendly community restaurant for all Vegas Golden Knights fans. As the new home of the Knights, Wolfgang Puck Players Locker will evolve from the existing Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill space at Downtown Summerlin, introducing a new menu including traditional sports fare and an innovative new beverage program. Las Vegas locals and tourists alike will have the rare opportunity to spot some of their favorite Knights while taking in some of the biggest and most anticipated sporting events and games on TV.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with members of the Vegas Golden Knights here in Las Vegas, the new hockey capital of the world,” said Wolfgang Puck. “We have created a unique and one-of-a-kind sports dining experience around great food and the best players in the NHL!”

“The opportunity to be a partner in the first-ever sports restaurant in Vegas is something I couldn’t pass up,” says Alex Tuch. “I am very excited to work side by side with one of the greatest chefs in the world, Wolfgang Puck.”

The current restaurant will be completely redesigned to celebrate the new concept, including a magnificent, floor-to-ceiling display of more than 100 custom glass lockers. Wolfgang Puck and each of the five players will receive a dedicated locker showcasing their favorite high-end spirits, with the additional lockers available for rent throughout the year.

The new space will also feature panoramic, flat-screen TVs thoughtfully integrated throughout the restaurant, an expansive bar area, a private dining room named “The Players Lounge” and two outdoor patios, one of which is pet-friendly.

Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill will remain open until mid-January, at which time it will undergo a brief, one-week remodel before re-opening its doors as the new Wolfgang Puck Players Locker. Additional details will be announced in the coming months.
