The 18th Amendment sure is a big deal these days. Now comes word that Downtown Las Vegas nabs another Prohibition-era pub when Commonwealth opens at the corner of East Fremont and Sixth Street.

The two-story venue is described as “a mixture of snooty English country home, distressed Boston pub and an urban rooftop garden,” says partner Michael Parks.

Inside, the owners plan exposed original brick and wood beams with a long main bar and a vintage stuffed albino peacock reigning over the scene. Leather and wood seating will surround the lower level, while two stairwells lead up to the rooftop deck bedecked in carnival lights, a DJ booth and a second bar. The 6,000-square-foot bar plans to serve wine on tap and cocktails from tin camping cups.
