Fremont East Cleaned Up and Becoming More

If you haven’t noticed please come up from under the rock and get out more, downtown Las Vegas is beginning to become a hot spot for locals and tourists alike. Tony Hsieh, founder of Zappos, plans to redesign and draw more people into the area is working. He has invested a lot of his own money for the project and has focused on downtown. Although, he is not the only contributor he seems to be the most passionate one. He has been able to draw in business owners with original ideas to make Fremont East a new experience for all involved.

Lately, there is more then just the Fremont Street Experience to enjoy on Fremont street, it has become okay to spill out onto the East District nowadays as well. Several new bars have opened up and it is starting to resemble a downtown college town where you have weekend bar crawls which includes hopping to and from an array of bars with different vibes. Except this is Las Vegas, the great city of entertainment and with that comes the responsibility of having the most unique ideas.

What’s down there you ask? Well for starters, Insert Coins is a bar for gamers to get their drink on and still enjoy their video games, Griffin has a unique experience as if you are being lured into a lair of Dracula’s chambers and one of my personal favorites, Don’t tell Mama, a piano bar that employs talented singing bartenders and waitresses which also offers open mic night for patrons 6 days a week.

It doesn’t end there either, Commonwealth has just opened up and allows bar goers to access a fabulous patio up top to enjoy drinks, music and downtown scenery. They are so new that they haven’t even had their grand opening yet which actually happens to take place this Wednesday on the infamous date of 12/12/12. I’ve heard it will be a red carpet event that starts at 6pm, so if you are going to make an appearance be sure to be wearing your finest.

Most recently Backstage Bar and Billiards aka Triple B has become the perfect addition to the city.  Not only is it conveniently located downtown, it gives players a breath of fresh air from the local run down pool halls around the Valley. It is only equipped with 7 Diamond tables that are rented by the hour but pool isn’t the only entertainment in there. At the back end of the room a brand new stage equipped with a brand new system that awaits to rock your night away in the spacious environment.  Also, there are whispers they will be expanding for an even greater experience.

Last but not least rumor has it that right next door to the Triple B another place will be opening up within the next month. Who knew that 6th and Fremont would be so exciting?  One thing is for sure though, the constant change of scenery has given locals and tourists a chance to intermingle, see something new and enjoy this great city together. That my friends it what it is all about.

What are your thoughts about the new downtown scenery leave your comments below.
