LAS VEGAS (April 1, 2021) – Bāng Bar, Chef David Chang’s popular Momofuku to-go concept, has officially landed inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Making its West Coast debut at the resort, Bāng Bar joins a dynamic lineup of made-to-order fast-casual concepts from foodie capitals across the nation inside Block 16 Urban Food Hall. A nod to the traditional global street meat market, Bāng Bar introduces elevated, Asian-inspired cuisine to the bustling Las Vegas culinary scene.
“Bāng Bar might be the craziest restaurant we’ve ever come up with at Momofuku,” said David Chang. “But, at the heart of it is freshly griddled flatbread and spit-roasted meat. The flavors at Bāng Bar will be familiar if you’ve eaten at a Momofuku restaurant. At the end of the day, we’re trying to create a good value for our guests — simple and delicious food.”
“The debut of Bāng Bar marks the beginning of several first-to-market food and beverage concepts coming to the resort this year,” said Patrick Nichols, General Manager and Chief Strategy Officer at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. “Over the last decade, The Cosmopolitan has remained at the forefront of the local culinary scene. We are thrilled to partner with David Chang and his incredible team once again to bring yet another one of his famed culinary destinations to Las Vegas.”
The ethos of Bāng Bar was carefully curated to incite exploration to its guests, from the restaurant’s sleek exterior, to the menu’s innovative take on delicious street-food favorites. Nestled between District: Donuts. Sliders. Brew. and Hattie B’s, Bāng Bar’s blackened steel exterior features high-top seating designed to be sleek and inviting. Simple yet uber-delicious menu items, such as The U-Wrap, Fold-Up Wrap and Rice Bowl, feature the restaurant’s famed spit-roasted meats and bāng flatbread, designed to be enjoyed on-the-go. Quick and unique snack-sized bites are also available for purchase, like the Bourbon Every Burger Cookie, Bourbon Fettucine Cola and Jagabee Potato Sticks, alongside a refreshing selection of unique beverages including Blood Orange Negroni and Yuzu Lemonade.
