Located just inside the entrance of the eastern side of the venerable Fremont Hotel & Casino, new addition The Filament Bar is now fully "illuminated" and serving cocktails, craft beers and also offering video gaming slotted into the dark wood counter top.
The clubby, warm design, open to the casino floor, features mounted TV screens and shiny kegs on the shelves behind the bar. On the menu, expect to find $5 Bud Light, $6 Guinness and "Crafty Handles" like Bad Beat Hefeweizen, New Belgium Fat Tire and Shiner Bock priced at $6.
Craft beers include the $6 Stiegl Grapefruit Radler, Rogue Dead Guy Ale and Ballast Point Sculpin IPA.
The Filament's electricity inspired themed cocktails are priced between $8 and $10 and include "The Electric Chair Martini," warning imbibers to "strap yourself in and sentence yourself to a delightful and charming euphoria. Don’t worry, you’ll live to tell about it." The "Filament Mule" is designed with a "modern downtown kiss" and the "Cucumber Coil Mojito" is "gleaming and glowing. Even Mr. Edison would re-charge and re-vitalize with this clean, crisp, and benevolent debauchery" and contains "Bacardi Light, simple syrup, mint leaves, and club soda."
Opening hours for The Filament are Sunday to Thursday from 2 p.m to 2 a.m and Friday and Saturday from noon to 3 a.m.
