Caesars Entertainment has revealed a list of new tenants slated to open within its $550-million Linq development.

Some of the retailers will make their Las Vegas debut under the Linq umbrella. Those include the Polaroid Fotobar store and museum, Chilli Beans Sunglasses, Vanity Style Lounge and Goorin Bros hat shop.

There will also be place for high-end footwear: 12 A.M. Run, a joint backed by rap giant Nas. For foodies, there will be The Stomping Grape, a restaurant featuring a casual approach to lighter and healthier comfort foods and drinks.

The new tenants join a growing roster of previously announced brands including Brooklyn Bowl, O’Sheas and Sprinkles Cupcakes.

"We are proud of the dynamic collection of retailers, restaurateurs and entertainment venues we've assembled as part of The Linq," said Jon Gray, the development's vice president and general manager, in a statement. "Each tenant is carefully selected to ensure that the brand offering and its placement within the development help us achieve just the right mix of fun and discovery to create a truly one-of-a-kind experience on the 50-yard line of the world famous Las Vegas Strip."

Opening later this year, the Linq features the High Roller, a 550-foot observation wheel.
