Fremont East Taking Shape…

The Fremont East project taking place in the Downtown Entertainment District is finally beginning to take shape. Fremont Street from Las Vegas Boulevard to Eighth Street is being gentrified to compliment the Fremont Street Experience and to bring visitors and locals alike back to Downtown. This project is spearheaded by the City of Las Vegas Office of Business Development.

As it stands Fremont Street has been narrowed and the sidewalks widened making the area more pedestrian friendly. Five fabulous neon signs are being installed along the new landscaped meridian. As of date two of the signs have been installed. The designs of the signs are all Googie inspired and they have an uncanny resemblance to signs from the Neon Boneyard.

This project will only help Downtown and bring attention to the fabulous venues that are already there and being planned.

Beauty Bar - 517 Fremont St., between Las Vegas Boulevard and Sixth Street,
Brass - 425 Fremont St., upstairs from Hennessey’s Tavern
Canyon Club - 202 Fremont St. at entrance to Four Queens Hotel & Casino Celebrity - 201 N.Third St., across from the Lady Luck Hotel

Downtown Cocktail Room - 111 Las Vegas Blvd.
