“It’s always exciting to bring a new concept to life, but bringing Flanker to Las Vegas at this moment, as the city seizes the crown as America’s sports capital, and at this location – the gateway to Allegiant Stadium – is particularly satisfying,” says Carver Road Hospitality Chief Executive Officer Sean Christie. “We’re committed to evolving the idea of what a sports bar can offer, with our signature hospitality complementing a menu that goes above-and-beyond expectations. From our wide array of burgers to our boozy shake selections, Flanker puts a twist on the traditional with new recipe and flavor combinations that fans can’t find anywhere else.”

Enhanced American classics on the menu created by Chef Daniel Ontiveros, Carver Road Hospitality’s corporate executive chef, include: the Pretzel Dog sausage wrapped in puff pastry; the “FFC” Flanker Fried Chicken Bucket; Cod Father fish and chips; Tailgate Nachos; and Lobster Corn Dogs. Burger offerings include Flanker’s Truffle Burger; Thunderbird turkey burger; Flanker-1 Western brisket and short rib blend; the Wagyu Smash Burger; and a “Burger of the Month” offering. Flanker’s boozy shakes options include the Sea Salt Smores shake; Key Lime Pie; and The Elvis Presley with banana bourbon whiskey, caramelized banana, peanut butter ice cream, and crispy bacon. The specialty cocktail menu features a number of house mojito options, margaritas, Old Fashioneds, and more. Flanker’s selection of draft and bottled beer is among the largest on The Strip.

Flanker Kitchen + Sports Bar is located adjacent to Mandalay Bay’s casino near the walkway to Allegiant Stadium and the entrance to The Shoppes at Mandalay Place. The restaurant also features a walk-up takeout window for fans to grab on-the-go bites, including The Glizzy Dog prime beef hot dog; Flanker Fried Hot Chicken Sando; and a variety of drinks, snacks, and small bites for younger fans.

Conceived as a fan-focused experience, a ceiling lighting design – inspired by the F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix track at night – guides guests through the main dining room and towards its massive 30-foot long by nine-foot-tall LED viewing screen. Flanker boasts LED screens throughout its six distinct dining areas, including a bar and lounge, three private dining suites accommodating 20, 40 or 60 guests, a “secret” 20-seat karaoke and gameday viewing suite ideal for group dining and intimate events, and a 24-seat dining patio.

Flanker Kitchen + Sports Bar will be open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. For Carver Road Hospitality updates, visit
