Ellis Island The Front Yard and Downtown White Castle Construction Updates

Monte Carlo - Park MGM - NoMad transition

New White Castle and Ellis Island’s The Front Yard construction progress

Downtown’s newest edition to its ever expanding food scene is inching closer to a grand opening later this month. Three million dollars’ worth of construction upgrades are nearly complete at the corner of 328 Fremont Street and 107 N. 4th Street, the future home of White Castle. The 6,500ft² footprint has been divided into two separate lots; the larger pad at 3,400ft² will be the aforementioned White Castle and the remaining 3,100ft² will be the newly configured Harley-Davidson retail shop.  This will be the second white castle location located in Las Vegas by development partners Troy Herbst and Rob Richardson. Fans of Las Vegas history will find this interesting; The Herbst-Richardson development company comes from Herbst, of the Terrible Herbst family [Herbst Gaming, Inc. now Affinity Gaming] and Rob Richardson, a former casino executive with ties to Circus Circus, Mandalay Bay, Monte Carlo, and Circus Circus.


Construction of Ellis Island’s new outdoor dining, entertainment, and drinking venue named The Front Yard is progressing at a feverish pace. The two story, $10-million dollar expansion will have space for some 300 low-rolling patrons. The venue is on pace to open in late 2017.

  1. I think the WC downtown is a good fit. I probably wont go there, as I come from a city where WC has been available all of my life. I would like to see an IN-N-OUT burger joint downtown.
