Oscar Goodman is looking for a few good — as he would put it — broads.
Las Vegas’ former showgirl-toting mayor is hiring half a dozen beautiful women for his new restaurant “Oscar’s,” set to open next month at the Plaza downtown. The steakhouse and speak-easy will carry the tagline: “Beef, Booze, Broads.”
Goodman, a notorious party man, will preside over auditions (dubbed a “broad-casting”) from noon to 3 p.m. Thursday and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday in the Plaza showroom. The mob lawyer-turned-politician-turned-entrepreneur wants to hire six women to entertain guests, drink with them and wow them with their knowledge of sports, business and Las Vegas.
A more refined way of describing the ladies? “Attractive concierges in evening attire,” according to the restaurant’s news release about the openings.
Oscar’s replaces Firefly in the Plaza’s iconic glass dome and will be two restaurants in one: a traditional steakhouse on one side and a more casual Italian eatery designed to resemble a Prohibition-era speak-easy on the other. It will be adorned with Goodman memorabilia, feature classic photographs of the city and serve Goodman’s signature gin martinis.
The Plaza also is hiring more traditional restaurant staff for the venue. Owners need more than two dozen people to work as food servers, bartenders, hostesses and bar porters. A job fair for those positions will be held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday through Friday on the third floor of the Las Vegas Club Hotel and Casino.
All candidates should complete online applications on the Plaza's website before attending. People who applied during the Plaza’s job fair this summer do not need to reapply.
