Local hangouts

The locals hangouts in Vegas are a lot different from the clubs on the strip that you see listed on Vegas nightlife web sites. Much more laid-back and low-key. Like the difference between Pop-Life and South Beach.

Jessie, our genius graphic designer, is our guy on the street in Vegas right now and he's sampling what they've got to offer. One of his latest local favorites is Griffin, a lounge downtown on Fremont Street. It's got an unpretentious vibe with huge fireplaces to go with the rustic leather decor and intimate brick-walled rooms. Random indie pop rock in two sound areas.

Right around the corner, Jessie and Francie and friends showed off Downtown, another small lounge with a totally different look and feel. The DJ was playing smooth Om-style deep house while we were there and I loved it.

Next on my list of Jessie suggestions is the Double Down Saloon. Haven't been yet but I'll be checking it out soon. Apparently I'm going to have to try some 'Ass Juice' soon whether I want to or not.

Re: Local hangouts

I'm going to try and keep this thread updated with different spots that aren't the strip.

To add, the Double Down Saloon is by the Hard Rock. This is the grimiest place to be in Las Vegas. Local Rock Bands with shitty sound systems play all night. Guys and girls share the same bathroom, the walls are full of band stickers and graffiti. Mohawks, Vintage dresses, converse sneakers, tattoos and 5 plus peircings just on your face is the norm. Its a good escape from the south beach crowd where everyone is dressed the same.

The one thing you must do is have their famous drinks. They have 2. One of them as Ryan mentioned is the Ass Juice. All the last bits of liquor from all the bottles are thrown together to make this evil drink. Sometimes it tastes like bubblegum and sometimes like cough syrup, one thing is for sure, it will slap you in the face for a cheap $3. The second is even more infamous, The Bacon Martini. Its basically a chunk of bacon wedged into a full vodka bottle, shaken and aged for 3 weeks. When they pour the drink theres bubbles of grease that consumes attention. It tastes like Beef Jerky Vodka.

This all might sound disgusting but you haven't experience the double down unless you hear a band there and drink these two beverages back to back.

Good luck.

Everything that Vegas has to offer, and Jessie orders a bacon martini.

Pod, I thought you said you couldn't post here?

Re: Local hangouts

I can post here. I just cannot see post icons like in the screenshot I showed you, i.e. I cannot select the "flame" or the "radioactive sign" like I can in the other forums, and that applies to my admin account too.

The minimum bet on a blackjack table is the same as the cost of a drink. Even if you suck, you still get drinks.
