Think of the Silver Stamp as stepping into a 1970s den replete with wood-paneled walls, low-slung ceilings, and vintage beer memorabilia lining the walls.
The new 2,400-square-foot beer bar in the Gateway District comes from Rose Signor, the former manager at Atomic Liquors, and Andrew Smith. Once the couple, who lived in Downtown Las Vegas for a combined 15 years, decided to build the bar together, they went on a backtracking trip through the United States and on to Bulgaria, Romania, Morocco, Greece, and Iceland to inspire the traditions they offer at the bar.
Signor is known for bringing a collection of sour beers to Downtown’s Atomic Liquors, and carries on that tradition at Silver Stamp. The 20 beers on tap include Andrew’s Hips Don’t Lie made exclusively for Silver Stamp by Juxta Nomad and Astronomy Aleworks and Funk Yeah Apricot from Beachwood Blendery, along with hard-to-find beers such as Dupont Avec Les Bon Voeux Saison from Belgium. Another 50 beers are available by the can or bottle.
Signor even brought in her collection of old beer cans to decorate the walls, while an old television set, brick walls, and Christmas lights decorate the space.
The bar features snacks such as Signor’s pickled eggs and hot dogs, but customers can bring in their own food.
The bar sits next to the new Atomic Tavern, a spin off of Atomic Liquors.
