Discover the Speakeasy Hidden Within Commonwealth in Las Vegas
While Commonwealth has become well-known for its rooftop bar and themed parties, many people are unaware of the secret speakeasy located within the walls (Pictured: Tam-Tam at The Laundry Room – Photo credit Chuck Sicuso)

The Laundry Room provides an intimate setting featuring a boozeologist and drink menu independent of the main bar with a great attention to detail on its craft cocktails.

Named “The Laundry Room” for its previous existence as the laundry facility for the El Cortez Hotel located directly across the street, the hidden speakeasy transports guests into a timeless era of drinking, merrymaking and revelry.

The Laundry Room is one of Downtown Las Vegas’ best kept secrets due to the very exclusive admission process. Visitors may only gain entry to the covert bar by texting a secret number and they will then receive instructions on how to make their way to the camouflaged entrance. Upon entering, guests are greeted by a host who informs the visitors of the intimate cocktail bars’ “house rules,” including no photography, no PDA and no talking on the phone. This discrete room encourages cocktail aficionados and Las Vegas locals and visitors, alike, to come together. The intimate space seats only 20 guests – inviting them to “please, speak easy” and create a creative social environment, sans smartphones.

The covert speakeasy recently launched a new menu with a variety of labor-intensive cocktails from its very own prohibition-style lead bartender, Anthony Partridge. The handcrafted concoctions include the Pom-Poms, a fruity blend of pineapple, lime and pomegranate juices, light rum and Anisette liqueur; the Hot Poker, a spicy mix of Orgeat syrup, lemon juice, mezcal and tequila, topped with habanero chili; and the floral Jacqueline Rose, made with apple brandy, rose syrup, lemon juice and Absinthe. All cocktails are priced at $16.

Reservations are required for The Laundry Room and may only be made via text message. Guests interested may find additional details at http://www.commonwealthlv.com/.
