Admitting "today is the first day I have ever been to Pahrump," last week Vince Neil traveled 60 miles west of Las Vegas to preview his new Vince Neil's Tatuado Wild Side Tavern. Despite never seeing the location, neighborhood or physical interior, the Mötley Crüe front man's new bar is now open and features the rocker's image and memorabilia everywhere you turn. Via email, Neil gave his thumbs up to each design element proposed by operator Michael Tsunis.
A younger, smaller version of Vince Neil's Tatuado Eat Drink Party at Circus Circus, the tavern eventually plans to host Neil and touring bands once an outdoor stage has been built. Also pending, Mick Akers of the Pahrump Valley Times reports a huge auditorium will eventually feature a shark named "Mr. Neil."
While the tavern finds its feet and confirmed hours, a 3 to 6 p.m. happy hour has been launched with $2.50 drafts and $3.50 craft beers. Outside and also acting as signage, a food truck is stationed offering a medley of street eats including deep fried meatballs and Vince-approved bacon avocado burgers.
