Las Vegas aka Sin City aka “insert one of the other fifty phrases that has become synonymous with Vegas”. A city that has been built on bright lights, gambling, nightlife, hopes & dreams, and drained bank accounts. It only seems proper that this venue spotlight is focused on a venue that has many of the great aspects to which this city was built on. For all of my locals, there’s a good chance you are very familiar with this bar, for everyone else let me introduce a gem in the heart of downtown Las Vegas.
Inspire is a multi-venue complex situated in the center of downtown Las Vegas at Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street. The keywords in the previous sentence that you need to be aware of so you can adequately understand Inspires awesomeness are “multi-venue complex”. Inspire is a bar, a lounge, and a theater all wrapped up into one massive location. With the emphasis on nightlife, dynamic programming, entertainment, and unique guest experiences, Inspire has much to offer including; convention/conference space, outdoor patio areas, a 150-seat theater, and multiple cocktail bars.
Let’s start off with the heart of Inspires multi-venue complex, which is their theater.
Equipped with 150 seats, state of the art sound and lighting systems, the Inspire Theater is first class all the way. Intimate yet surprisingly expansive it is designed to accommodate a wide variety of dynamic, idea-driven speaking and performance events, music concerts, and small productions and screenings. Their theater is also perfect for private parties, along with, convention or corporate events.
Inspire, as previously said, has multiple bars. The venue boats 3 floors with a dedicated bar on each level. The first floor holds their wayfarer bar, which pays homage to American cocktail culture’s midcentury heyday. The wayfarer bar is a cozy, upscale homage to that era’s sumptuous, bourbon and scotch-fueled social spaces. It is described as a seamless mix of retro, Mad Men-inspired design and modern technology, convenience and service make it an ideal setting for intimate, sophisticated gatherings.
Although an intimate vibe it can accommodate parties of 2 as comfortably as groups of 20 or more.
Next up is their second floor lounge, which encompasses a wrap-around outdoor balcony with bistro style seating; multiple lounge spaces, meeting areas, and semi-secluded nooks ideal for date night. The lounge boasts its own private toilet and green room facilities, along with a fully networked HDMI-enabled conference room, and exclusive mezzanine and VIP skybox seating overlooking the Inspire Theater. Whether you’re a local looking for somewhere to have a few drinks and good conversations with some out of town friends or family, or you’re a group of tourists looking for a place to get a drink without being in the casino; Inspires second floor lounge is a spot you won’t regret.
Now for the pièce de résistance of Inspire, behold their rooftop. As previously stated Inspire holds an emphasis on nightlife and their rooftop is the main attraction. The rooftop delivers more than just killer views. This one-of-a-kind bar serves up cocktails and draught beers in a fun, communal atmosphere three stories above Fremont Street. With state of the art sound & lighting you can see & hear the party going on 3 blocks away. With DJ’s playing a mix of classic and new releases it is a sure fire promise you’ll be dancing amongst people of all walks of life late into the night.
The end of the story is. Go check out Inspire…now…tonight…tomorrow…JUST GO! I’m sure you will be adding it to the staple of bars you need/will check out here in Vegas.
