When we think of Sunset Park, we think of high altitudes, tacos, and superlative banh mi. But we are not the owners of a Las Vegas gentlemen’s club called Crazy Horse Too.
According to Crain’s, Vincent Faraci, proprietor of the aforementioned club and other Las Vegas entertainment concerns, is planning to bring the “Las Vegas dining experience” to the neighborhood with Jaguars, a 20,000-square-foot establishment with a 4,000-square-foot outdoor area. Located at 225 47th Street, it will serve Italian food daily from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. Also, it will have a jungle theme.
Faraci told Crain’s that Jaguars will be a “restaurant inside of a nightclub,” which sounds like a more honest description for half of the restaurants applying for liquor licenses in Lower Manhattan. He also noted that “in some of the best restaurants in Vegas there’s loud music,” though declined to say whether those restaurants are also furnished with stripper poles.
