Corner Bar Management (CBM), the innovative company behind Commonwealth, The Laundry Room, Park on Fremont and Joy of Hot Dog, has announced four new concepts coming to Fremont Street East Entertainment District. They include Lucky Day and DISCOPUSSY, set to open on Friday, July 3, in addition to We All Scream and Cheapshot opening later this year.
The four unconventional venues will join CBM’s existing restaurants and bars on East Fremont Street between Las Vegas Boulevard and Sixth Street, including Commonwealth, a 6,000-square-foot neighborhood bar with rooftop views and a hidden cocktail haven, The Laundry Room; Park on Fremont, a 5,000-square-foot bar and back garden patio filled with objects d’art; and Joy of Hot Dog, a neon-lit trailer serving unconventional hot dogs.
CBM was founded by Ryan Doherty, who brings compelling art, eye-catching design, edgy entertainment, progressive cocktails and innovative cuisine together through each of his bars and restaurants. “This is a remarkable opportunity to develop new concepts that fit together as part of a comprehensive entertainment and nightlife strategy to shape an entire city block,” said Doherty of his new downtown Las Vegas concepts. “Each will view art, architecture, cocktails and entertainment through a distinctive lens to complement the other for what will be an incredible night of bar hopping – or even our own block party.”
Lucky Day, set to open at 516 E. Fremont St. on July 3, will occupy 3,000 square feet stuffed to the brim with iconography, color and an explosion of lights, Lucky Day will offer an impressive collection of mezcals and tequilas. A living, breathing art installation on the ceiling will present a canopy of 15,000 colorful, programmable LED lights of all shapes and sizes that twinkle above guests. Eccentric pieces of art and eye-catching artifacts will be found in a shrine adorning an entire wall, a cacophony of pesos, knick-knacks, discarded fortunes, stained glass windows and tattered memories. Classic and bespoke cocktails will be complemented by house-made tortilla chips, salsa fresca and four signature guacamoles.
Also opening its doors on July 3 is DISCOPUSSY, located at 512 E. Fremont St. An old school, covert 6,500-square-foot space, DISCOPUSSY will be minimal in everything but sound, catering to audiophiles craving mainline house and techno through an immersive sound system. A one-of-a-kind, custom-built lighting structure reminiscent of a disco octopus serves as the centerpiece over the bar, where eight tentacles made of more than 10,000 laser-cut components illuminate through 5,000 light diodes. Created by Studio Annwn in collaboration with Future TBD, the octopus offers a colorful, visual light experience for patrons while they imbine and unwind.
A collision of candy-colored clubland set to open this fall, We All Scream will be a sensory overload of club, music, art and ice cream in a 10,000-square-foot space at 517 E. Fremont St. A veritable warren of wonderment, We All Scream is comprised of three separate spaces: an indoor bar will channel a 1950s ice cream parlor with brass fittings, dark woods and drugstore ephemera; a back-alley patio will offer dancing under strings of lights; and upstairs, a rooftop bar and dance floor will be surrounded by spectacular 360-degree views of all the glitter and grit of Downtown Las Vegas. The rooftop will be downtown’s first true nightclub with a vibrant dance floor, dynamic lighting and an immersive Void Acoustics sound system. Late at night the back alley patio will come alive with with an explosion of ever-evolving, large-scale art installations and music.
Cheapshot will be the smallest showroom and discotheque in Las Vegas with its opening this fall at 520 E. Fremont St. An intimate 3,000-square-foot palace of varieties littered with art and humor, Cheapshot will pay homage to camp and classic Las Vegas through a range of unconventional acts, from bawdy comedians to dancers performing lecherous choreography. Rich reds, gold accents, softly-lit classy booths and plush seating will surround the bar’s stage, replete with follow spot lighting and classic red velvet curtains.
