Downtown Las Vegas

Do you remember the year 1905?? ……. Neither do we, but what a historical year that was. Las Vegas was founded and Fremont Street was established, later becoming the first paved street in Las Vegas in 1925. While many are familiar with Las Vegas Boulevard (“The Strip”), Fremont Street and Downtown Vegas have been around just as long with just as much history behind it. The first casino to become licensed with a gambling license was the Northern Club in 1931 and that led the way for Las Vegas to become the gaming capital of the world.

Much has changed over the years in Las Vegas and Fremont Street has been through its own ups and downs. In 2006, the city revealed plans to re-develop Fremont Street East in an attempt to revitalize the downtown area. While Fremont Street East may not contain the flashy Las Vegas nightlife you can find on the Strip, it has become a favorite for locals with several popular bars and live music offered regularly.

Fremont East District/Downtown3rd:


Park on FremontOne of the only “beer gardens” downtown, Park has a creative selection of beers, shots, and bloody marys.  A different vibe, each wall is uniquely designed with artwork and trinkets, don’t forget to check out the see-saw in the back!

The Griffin – Its great ambiance, low lighting and comfy booths give this place an old Vegas feel without having to try too hard.

Hogs & Heifers Saloon – With music blaring, scantily clad bartenders, dancing on the bar, and cheap drinks flowing, this joint practically defines “dive bar”.

Commonwealth – A Boston style bar with three bars—a main long bar on the main level; a rooftop garden bar; and a Prohibition-era speakeasy style private room, accessible only to guests with a reservation. ***The Laundry Room at Commonwealth is a hidden gem that usually requires reservations.***

Mob Bar Located across from the Mob Museum and inside the Downtown Grand, Mob Bar is one of Downtown’s most sophisticated bars and will remind visitors of America’s romantic era – the roaring twenties.

Pizza Rock Created by world-renowned pizza legend Tony Gemignani, Pizza Rock has a huge variety of pizzas (and pizza ovens). A great selection of craft beers and a cool atmosphere make this a spot to check out.

Additional Stops to Make: Beauty Bar, Downtown Cocktail Room, Vanguard Lounge, Le Thai, Backstage Bar & Billiards

Other Downtown Options:Container_Park_01

Container Park Downtown’s newest adventure features large shipping containers arranged and stacked to create an outdoor entertainment park with an ever-changing assortment of retail, restaurants, bars and entertainment. Oh… and a giant grasshopper that shoots flames. No big deal.

Atomic Liquor – A legendary Las Vegas bar featuring the oldest liquor license in the city. Recently remodeled, they were recently visited by Travel Channel star Anthony Bourdain who gave it his seal of approval.

Advice from the locals – Get any drink you want in a local favorite – Football cups! The Sexy Sax Man is a staple on Fremont but the real fun is the hours of people watching, Mardi-gras bead finding, drinking debauchery. The casinos also have lower minimums, a good place to find $5-$10 black jack and craps.

As you can see there are plenty of options downtown and there are many more bars and restaurants in the works. Fremont is in the end stages of a multi-million dollar renovation, its worth a few hours of your time. So on that night you are not sure what to do or when you are not up for the big nightclubs and getting all dressed up, make a trip down to Fremont Street and check out what Downtown Vegas has to offer!
