Downtown Summerlin’s Only Neighborhood Bar Opens In April
Las Vegas, NV –The interior design overhaul and theme change is complete and Frankie’s Uptown opening is scheduled for April 1, 2019. As Downtown Summerlin’s first and only neighborhood bar, Owner Frankie Lee (know by many as Frankie Pepperoni) welcomes the community to see his latest venture that was designed and created by locals for locals.
“We want it to be home base for locals but since it’s literally a home run’s distance from the new Las Vegas Ball Park, it’s actually a home run for everyone,” Frankie states.
Frankie’s Uptown patrons will be treated to outstanding service, amazing food and a creative selection of signature cocktails as well as a robust list for the whiskey and bourbon lover, cold beer and a fabulous wine selection. The dining room features high ceilings accentuating stylish lighting designs, beautiful brick wall accents and comfortable, casual seating throughout.
The food menu at Frankie’s is a collaboration of family recipes ranging from NE Pennsylvania to Rhode Island featuring his signature item, The STRoLL. A Vegas born creation, the STRoLL is a hybrid of the Calzone and Stromboli. Guests may customize their STRoLL by ordering the “How You Doin STRoLL” or choose from house favorites like the Knight STRoLL, a blend of seasoned meats and cheeses served with marinara, or the Summerlin STRoLL with sautéed spinach and a blend of cheeses baked golden brown. On weekends you can go for a Morning STRoLL with pepperoni, scrambled eggs and cheese. Another Frankie’s original is Frankie’s Italian Sushi featuring shaved filet mignon (Carpaccio) rolled up with arugula, pesto sauce and sun-dried tomatoes and then served sliced like sushi. In addition, the Charcuterie selections will be off the charts.
Guests are invited to stay and play eight or nine ball on a Vegas Golden Knights themed pool table, compete in a friendly game of shuffle board or you can even play chess on an authentic Brunswick chess table. Frankie’s Uptown is where style meets comfort and guests will feel right at home.
As owner and long time Las Vegas entrepreneur, Frankie is a well known character with a big personality. His deep roots in the restaurant and pizza industry earned him the affectionate nickname “Frankie Pepperoni.” Involved with the day-to-day operations, Frankie’s personality will be on full display along with his beautiful wife Chris, who will welcome everyone as if they are coming into their own home.
