Chinatown Report: This Week in Chinatown
Las Vegas Chinatown news and analysis by Chinatownvegas.com. Food. Restaurants. Tips. Things to do. Events. What’s in? What’s out? RUMORS + much more
After months of complaining about the cold weather as well as the construction, it seems like both are about over. Yayyy. Bring on the warmth and sunshine.
The construction at the new Koreatown Village is in full force and we were told by its owner, restauranteur Freddy Hwang that the tentative opening will be this June. The strip mall is unlike any other and very detailed. Anchors of the mall will be the first Open Bank (Korean-owned) in Nevada, Master Kim’s Korean Barbecue, and Industry 13. We expect this to be a super popular hangout for both locals and tourists alike. Read more under Koreatown Village.
Letters of the Week:
We receive several inquiries about Las Vegas Chinatown.
We will feature some here in our weekly report.
Jacky Wang asks:
Are there any Churches (Christian) that do mass in both English and Mandarin?”
Hi, Jacky, there are several. Two are the River of Life Christian Church in the back of the Mountain Point Business Park West ( Behind Hobak/Gabi) on Spring Mountain Rd and the other is the Grace Chinese Baptist Church located next to the Sa-Yo Plaza on Spring Mountain Rd. They also offer translations of the mass through headphones.
Let’s have a look and see what is new in Chinatown
We are starting from the east and heading west on Spring Mountain Rd.
What’s Up at The Center at Spring Mountain?
00 Pie and Pub inches closer to its opening
The new sign has been placed for the new pizza place by the Lev Group. 00 (double zero or doppio zero) named after the flour used by most pizza chefs are almost ready. 00 Pie and Pub promises to serve craft pizzas in a fun, pub-like atmosphere
Grand Cru by Partage immersive food and wine experience
The front lounge will serve as a waiting area for both Partage restaurant as well as the food and wine experience room behind it.
Behind the Grand Cru Lounge, is the immersive food and wine experience room with various wall projections that will transport you to France. This new space is another major asset to Chinatown and another reason why there is no Chinatown anywhere like it.

New Items at Fukuya: Flavored Vinegar Drinks
We love Fukuya and now have yet another reason to shop there- Japanese-flavored vinegar drinks. They come in blueberry, apple, honey black vinegar, and plum and you can drink them straight from the bottle. Vinegar drinks are very healthy and improve circulation and fatigue.
Open 7 days 10 am-7 pm

Pacific Asian Plaza
India House Bar and Grill will soft open this weekend
The name may confuse some with the word “Pinoy, ” which relates to the Philippines or Filipinos, but it is not. The word Pinoy describes the style of place it is with a restaurant and bar with live music and karaoke.
India House will have live music on weekends and karaoke every night of the week. During the day, the 125+ seat restaurant will offer a buffet and ala carte dining but at night it will be only ala carte. There is also a full bar with large TV screens. In the next few months, India House will have outdoor dining on the patio, located on the top floor of the Pacific Asian Plaza with views of Chinatown and strip hotels.

Industry 13 is an upscale modern Asian karaoke bar unlike any other in our city. There are a total of 14 private rooms. Each room is unique with different metal trim and decor. Industry 13 will have a modern karaoke system in each room that will contain Chinese, and Korean and the ability to play songs from YouTube. They will have a full-service bar along with a fully operating kitchen to provide high-quality food. The interior is set to be a modern-style industrial warehouse along with state-of-the-art video/audio systems in the bar area there is a very high brick back bar and is NY Soho/industrial chic. Some of the larger rooms will contain a small lit-up stage for patrons to enjoy and sing on, each room will be designed differently and will have its own unique look and feel.
