FLAMINGO LAS VEGAS ANNOUNCES PLANS TO OPEN THE FIRST WEST COAST CARLOS’N CHARLIE’S

FLAMINGO LAS VEGAS ANNOUNCES PLANS TO OPEN THE FIRST WEST COAST CARLOS’N CHARLIE’S

Popular Mexican Cantina Set to Open This April  

Flamingo Las Vegas is pleased to announce plans to open the first West Coast location of the high-energy Mexican eatery Carlos’n Charlie’s. The restaurant and bar will make its debut this April.

Located adjacent to the Race & Sports Book, Carlos’n Charlie’s will span more than 13,000 square feet serving lunch and dinner nightly. The dining room will boast seating for 150, and a unique outdoor terrace will overlook the lush Flamingo pool and gardens complete with oversized umbrellas and cooling misters, accommodating an additional 150. The large bar will seat up to 40 guests bringing the venue’s full seating capacity to 340, with additional space for gathering and dancing.

“This lively and upbeat restaurant and bar will offer Flamingo guests a new attractive dining option,” said Rick Mazer, president of the Flamingo. “Carlos’n Charlie’s has set the standard for fun and excitement and it will be the perfect addition to the Flamingo experience.”

Carlos’n Charlie’s opened its first location in Acapulco, Mexico in 1970, immediately attracting tourists and locals alike with its great food, loud music and party-like atmosphere. The concept quickly caught on, and there are currently 11 Carlos’n Charlie’s locations throughout Mexico. The fun, laid-back restaurant concept was created by Grupo Anderson, the team behind Mexico’s tourist hot spot, Señor Frog’s. In 1994, Carlos’n Charlie’s made its U.S. debut and is now making its way to the West, to the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.

“Las Vegas is one of the most iconic tourist destinations in the world and it is a great honor to call Flamingo our new home. Our dedicated team has the experience of managing more than 40 restaurants worldwide over the past 41 years and will continue with the same simplicity and humility. On any given night guests will see the owners wearing a “mandil” (apron), attending to their customers and proving an unforgettable experience. More than a Mexican restaurant, we are Mexicans in a restaurant where good food and “fiesta” are guaranteed for everybody,” said Genaro Dispa, general manager for Carlos’n Charlie’s.

The food menu will offer a wide variety of authentic Mexican favorites such as tacos, burritos, chimichangas, enchiladas, fajitas and other traditional Mexican fare. Guests can also create their own tableside guacamole with Carlos’n Charlie’s interactive guacamole cart, for the perfect unique blend. A selection of American favorites such as Chipotle BBQ ribs, burgers and spicy chicken wings will also be offered.

The restaurant will offer a casual setting where guests are free to unwind and encouraged to dance to the tunes of the ’70s, ’80s and current hits of today. Partygoers will enjoy an extensive bar menu featuring margaritas, sangria and a lengthy selection of signature cocktails including the Paloma, a tequila-based libation with grapefruit soda topped off with a salt-rimmed glass.
