Boulder City Podcast

Nevada's most interesting small town


Podcast With Becky and James Hughes, Proprietors, Hanger 502

In this episode of the Boulder City Podcast, we are joined by Becky and James Hughes, the proprietors of Hanger 502, the new deli, bar and restaurant that will open this May in Boulder City. James Hughes spent 20 years in the U.S. Air Force, 10 of those years in Las Vegas. On weekends and holiday, James and his wife Becky would travel to Lake Mead to enjoy boating, stopping in Boulder City before and after each trip. One day in 2021, they spotted a “for sale” sign on the florist shop at the corner of Nevada Way and Arizona. Becky thought it was the perfect place to fulfill her lifelong dream of owning a deli, something that has been missing from the Boulder City scene. But once they gutted the property they realized it was a bigger space than was needed for a simple deli, and they added a bar and restaurant to that dream. Now as they approach the grand opening in the spring of the Air Force-themed Hanger 502, they sat down with Boulder City Podcast host Roger Gros in late February.
