A new museum dedicated to punk rock is opening next to a strip club in Las Vegas — and it’s going to be home to a new, divey bar. The Punk Rock Museum, dedicated to the history, culture, and absurdity of the genre, is opening at 1422 Western Avenue on January 13 of next year. The 12,000-square-foot museum is under construction and will soon house artifacts and memorabilia from across the world’s punk scenes well as a bar, tattoo parlor, chapel for both weddings and wakes, a punk merch shop, performance space, and more.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that P Moss, the founder of the landmark dive bars Double Down Saloon and Frankie’s Tiki Room, will co-manage the new Triple Down bar within the museum. The Double Down stands out among Las Vegas dives for its live music, helpful signs such as, “you puke, you clean,” and libations that include the Ass Juice shot — rumored to be the collective bartop spillage of previously poured drinks.
Seven presale ticket bundles are available now. The lowest-tier $100 bundle includes museum tickets, an ill-fitting t-shirt, and warm beer at the bar. The premium bundle gets you a plaque above a restroom urinal or on a stall door, a Punk Rock Museum staff jacket, tickets to the opening night party, a tattoo, and the honor of having a drink at the bar named for you.
