Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop may have originated in Delaware, but it was in Las Vegas where the family-owned sandwich shop began its journey to nationally recognized and beloved franchise brand. That’s why we couldn’t be more pleased to see Capriotti’s at the heart of J Dapper’s freshly renovated Huntridge Center in Downtown Las Vegas. In a beautiful standalone building designed by local Las Vegas architectural firm Bunnyfish, Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, and neighboring Roberto’s Taco Shop, provides nourishment to visitors of the cleaned up and redesigned shopping plaza.
Recently, Dapper also purchased the storied but long-vacant Huntridge Theater down the block from the center with plans to turn it into a thriving music and performing arts venue, and Capriotti’s will be well-positioned to feed hungry concert-goers and patrons of the arts.
Designed with Neighborhood Identity in Mind
With many restrictions still in place due to the pandemic, the Huntridge Center Capriotti’s location has adapted, offering curbside pickup and delivery through third-party services. However, when guests are welcomed back to dine in, they are in for a treat.
The building now home to Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop was designed with a decidedly mid-century feel to complement the rest of the plaza’s upgrades, which include an overhauled Circle K gas station that has become a popular Instagram photo op. Inside the sandwich shop, Capriotti’s pays homage to the Atomic Age with decorative touches such as modern sputnik chandeliers and a jax starburst pattern on the divider walls.

J Dapper and the Revived Huntridge Center
When local Las Vegas developer J Dapper purchased the Huntridge Center in 2016, it was in need of some TLC. Tenants included a Savers, a pharmacy, a barbershop, a classic dive bar, and the aforementioned Circle K gas station, but there was plenty of underutilized or abandoned space, which made it ideal for squatters. Under Dapper’s revitalization plan, a vacant and dilapidated restaurant building was torn down to make room for the new Capriotti’s location, the parking lot was reconfigured and better lit, and the exterior of the plaza received a facelift. Other new tenants were added, and the Huntridge Center became a destination Downtown Las Vegas could embrace.
