Those in the “know” are aware that here in Las Vegas the strip and the Fremont Street experience are one in the same but two completely different monsters. Fremont Street offers different options than the strip but both have what tourists have come to love about Sin City; gambling, no open container laws, and of course some of the best bars/nightclubs in the country. The Las Vegas Strip focuses on multi-million dollar nightclubs but Fremont Street focuses on bars. When I say bars I don’t mean your hometowns local Irish pub or tavern, I’m talking about venues that specializes in something different that makes them unique compared to everyone else . Case in point lets get into this week’s venue spotlight, which is none other than the infamous “Beauty Bar”.
Located at 517 Fremont St, Las Vegas NV 89101 Beauty Bar is one of a kind. Founded in New York City in 2004, Beauty Bar Las Vegas is the original bar and music venue on Fremont Street. Owned by Darin Feinstein and History channels “Pawn Star” Corey Harrison, Beauty Bar brings a casual retro vibe to Downtown Las Vegas. Beauty Bar's two stages host live music from a variety of genres every night of the week. The Indoor Stage is used for intimate settings and holds approximately 125 people, while the Outdoor Stage host’s larger events up to 300 people. The outdoor area is one of the only outdoor concert venues in Downtown Las Vegas.
Now with a name like Beauty Bar you’d expect that they offer something totally different from every other bar they are surrounded by. Well, during the day, Beauty Bar offers manicures, pedicures, and specialty cocktail drinks for individuals, small groups, and private functions. Sticking to its name the bar itself has very cool retro vibe going on featuring 1950s-style salon décor complete with hair dryer seats straight out of the '50s. Other throwback touches include linoleum flooring, gold mirrors and a color palette that looks like it came straight out of Marcia Brady’s closet. Just about every night during the week/weekend the intimate 2,100-square-foot Beauty Bar is always entertaining. You'll find cheap beer nights, karaoke nights and live DJs just about every night.
One thing that defines a Las Vegas staple from the “other” is the background of how a place got its name and theme. Well as I said before Beauty Bar is a chain that was started back in my hometown of New York City. It was made famous by the “martinis and manicures” concept featured on Sex and the City. Taking notes from their mother venue in NYC Beauty Bar delivers the same experience. Be sure to add this to your lists of stops when visiting Fremont Street.
