Simple & classic
Modeled after the iconic, round-the-clock American eatery of the 1940s, Winnie & Ethel’s Downtown Diner draws upon the rich history and legacy of Las Vegas’ Huntridge Theater and neighborhood.
Chef Aaron Lee and CEO Mallory Gott named the restaurant after his grandma Winnie and her great-grandma Ethel whose warm, loving kitchens were always open.
We’re here to deliver delicious food in an astonishing space, creating a welcoming place where our downtown Las Vegas family can gather, break bread, and forge bonds that build community—any time of the day or night*.
*Round the clock diner service beginning in late 2023/early 2024.

Winnie & Ethel’s Downtown Diner – one of only six finalists chosen from nearly 90 submissions to compete in Dapper Companies’ The Great Las Vegas Coffee Shop Giveaway – has officially been announced the winner of the Huntridge Shopping Center location and $950,000 contest award package. On Thursday, May 19, Dapper Companies held a press conference at Vegas Test Kitchen, where media and the community gathered to hear which concept won the contest.
“We are overjoyed with the outcome,” said Mallory Gott, half of the Winnie & Ethel’s duo and owner of G+A| An Experiential Design Firm. “We woke up, and our lives were changed,” continued chef Aaron Lee. “It took a lot of hard work, but we are so grateful to be here and to start working on the next steps.”
