UnCommons Introduces Mercadito, a Neighborhood Bodega with Authentic Cuban Sandwiches, Coffee and Grocery Essentials

UnCommons, a $400 million, 40-acre mixed-use community by Matter Real Estate Group, announces Mercadito as its newest tenant. A bodega serving a range of authentic Cuban sandwiches, coffee and grocery essentials, Mercadito will join the much-anticipated development when it opens this summer in southwest Las Vegas.

The 1,000-square-foot market will serve as a gathering place for the community, offering everything from the day’s newspapers and magazines to groceries. The bodega will serve Cuban staples such as cold and hot-pressed sandwiches, empanadas and pastries crafted by Chef Dennis Martinez Miranda, a Las Vegas resident who was born and raised in Cuba.

“We can’t wait to bring our bodega to the southwest Las Vegas community at UnCommons,” said Martinez Miranda. “You can find bodegas in many cities like Havana, Miami, New York and Los Angeles that serve as the community cornerstones. At Mercadito, we hope to be just that, a place where people can stop in for things like laundry detergent or medicine, enjoy an incredible sandwich and feel the pulse of the community.”

Mercadito’s sandwiches, empanadas and pastelitos are inspired by those that can be found at traditional Cuban markets in South Florida. Made fresh daily, signature items will include Cuban sandwiches, guava and cheese pastries and cheese rolls. Mercadito will also feature a walk-up window that serves traditional Cuban coffees and drinks while offering outdoor spaces to connect with friends and colleagues.

“We’re excited to welcome Mercadito, which will bring Cuban flair and cuisine to the people who live, work and visit UnCommons,” said Matter Real Estate Group Partner Jim Stuart. “Mercadito adds an exciting layer to our diverse mix of food and beverage offerings and will enhance UnCommons as a truly connected neighborhood.”

Mercadito will join UnCommons’ thoughtful lineup of food and beverage options including Las Vegas’ first neighborhood food hall, Teaspoon, Urth Caffé and MINA Group’s first off-Strip, fast-casual restaurant, plus many more to be announced soon.

UnCommons will reimagine the workplace experience with market-leading design and technology, floor-to-ceiling windows that welcome daylight and views of the natural Las Vegas surroundings, breakout spaces for individual work or small group collaboration, a conference center that can be used to host small meetings and workshops and more. Bringing together multiple fitness studios, open-air common areas, contemporary residential units and a mélange of food and beverage options, the campus will set the foundation for a thriving, inspiring workplace. Future phases will bring UnCommons to more than 500,000 square feet of modern office space, all built with distinctive architectural features and the latest in safety innovations.
