Full Review

This rocking bar in the Fremont East Entertainment District certainly comes with an impressive pedigree. Co-owned by “Big Daddy” Carlos Adley of the famed Velvet Margarita in Hollywood, DJ Lethal of Limp Bizkit and House of Pain, and DJ Scotty Boy of Las Vegas, the club is designed to look like (and act as) a “backstage” to the adjacent Fremont Country Club concert venue.

The place has a cool, “inside the music industry” vibe. The bar and stools are fashioned out of the kind of cases that roadies transport music equipment in, a huge library of vinyl records dominates the wall behind the DJ booth, and rock memorabilia is scattered around the room. Billiards, a small stage for frequent concerts from local and touring bands, and a private VIP room complete the package.

Prices are reasonable especially when compared to The Strip. A cover charge will only apply on special events/concerts and drinks won’t break your bank.

The crowd here will vary depending the event and the night but will often trend toward the tattoo and piercing set and their appreciators. There’s no reason for that to intimidate you but if it does, stay at your hotel lounge and have a mojito.

This is yet another great Downtown Las Vegas destination that should be on your list of bar hopping spots.
