Definitely not a place for the faint of heart, the Double Down may not be as "dive bar" as it looks but it does a very realistic imitation of one with lots of grafitti, punk/rock artwork, and a no-nonsense staff. There is one basic rule posted so everyone can see: "You puke, you clean it up."
Just off The Strip on Paradise Ave., not too far from the Hard Rock Hotel.
A strange combination of alt-trendy tourists, goth locals, and punk rockers that, surprisingly seem to get along just fine.
Cover charges vary depending on the events but they are never terribly high and the drink prices are affordable.
Check the website for the listing of bands and when they are playing. You may not have heard of any of them but a quick Google search will clue you as to the kind of music you can expect.
Because you adhere to their other motto: "Shut up and drink."
They feature great local and regional bands (skewing toward punk and ska).
The kind of place you should visit at least once in your life.
