Corner Bar Management from Ryan Doherty isn’t done with Fremont East quite yet. In early July, the owner of Park on Fremont and Commonwealth opened Lucky Day Tequila & Mezcal House and Discopussy, both of which closed along with Commonwealth on July 10 after Gov. Sisolak ordered all bars to reclose to prevent the spread of COVID-19. But later this year, he plans to open We All Scream and Cheapshot on the stretch of Fremont East.
We All Scream combines a nightclub, music, art, and ice cream in a 10,000-square-foot space at 517 Fremont St., formerly Beauty Bar. Inside, three different spaces that include an indoor bar that replicates a 1950s ice cream parlor with brass fittings, dark woods, and drugstore ephemera; a back alley patio with dancing under strings of lights; and upstairs, a rooftop bar and dance floor with 360-degree views of Downtown Las Vegas. That back alley patio combines large-scale art installations and music.
Cheapshot takes over 520 Fremont St. with a 3,000-square-foot venue, dubbed the smallest showroom and discotheque in Las Vegas. Think of Cheapshot as an homage to camp and classic Las Vegas featuring unconventional acts including comedians and dancers. The venue comes wrapped in reds, gold accents, and softly lit booths surrounding the bar’s stage outfitted with red velvet curtains.
Corner Bar also has Joy of Hot Dog, a neon-lit trailer serving unconventional hot dogs, generally parked near Park on Fremont.
Beauty Bar’s contentious downtown residency finally came to end last year with the loss of its liquor license and receipt of an eviction notice.
Lucky Day plans to reopen on July 17 with reservations only and tortilla chips, salsa fresca, and guacamole flights.
