The Linq gets Bowling Restaurants and Bars

The Linq announced a list of tenants which will be occupying the property via the Caesars Pulse of Vegas blog.

The headliner appears to be Brooklyn Bowl, which is a combination bowling alley, nightclub and performance venue. At first glance I scoffed at the idea of a bowling alley on the Strip, but further investigation shows the original Brooklyn Bowl in New York to be a pretty cool looking place. Will it work in Las Vegas? Maybe.

The other Linq tenants will include:

Sprinkles - cupcakes and ice cream.
Koto - an "oddities" store.
Off the Strip Bistro - an Italian restaurant and bar (not surprisingly, they also have a location off the Strip).
Bella Scarpa - footwear boutique.
F.A.M.E. - stands for food, art, music and entertainment and will aim to recreate an "Asian Night Market" vibe.
Ruby Blue - jewelry and accessories.
Yard House - bar and grill, this will be the third Vegas location (Red Rock and Town Square).
Tilted Kilt - an upscale, Scottish version of Hooters.
Flour and Barley - wood fired pizza and craft beer.
Chayo Mexicano - huge restaurant with multiple bars.

None of these are entirely unexpected, but all of them appear to be pretty good selections for a development like The Linq. All of the dining options appear to have good bar components, and it appears many will include live music, which is a plus.

While some of these are chains, they are all fairly unique. I doubt we'll be seeing an Applebee's or Friday's as part of The Linq as some had feared.
