So tonight we're hitting up a few bars on Charleston just a few blocks west of the strip.
We're gonna start with dinner and drinks at the Artisan around 10pm. The Artisan is probably one of the coolest and best kept hotels in Las Vegas. In their words, "It’s 1914, the Parisian Left Bank, an elegant and mysterious world of art, absinthe, and decadent indulgence."
Inside the Artisan you'll find Mood Restaurant where we're going to grab some food after working a long day, where we can chill and catch up over a drink. Yvonne and I work pretty late at the tattoo shop so it's cool to find somewhere that serves food late at night. Mood serves food from it's menu until 11pm, and then it looks like they serve from their late night menu all night, and 50% off drinks and appetizers from 6am-8am during Happy Hour!
After dinner we'll probably mozy on over to the lounge and have a few drinks. Tonight it looks like they have a Yelp Drinks! Las Vegas special and they have 50% off featured beverages - score!
...and in their own words...
Timeless, hip and welcoming…OPEN 24-7!
The spirited and alluring ARTISAN LOUNGE is timeless, hip and always welcoming. This old-school club-room style bar, lounge and patio has long been a party spot for Hollywood hipsters and in–the-know Vegas locals. Enjoy handcrafted cocktails, fine beer and wine and a lively bar scene, or sneak off to a dark corner booth for a discreet rendezvous. ARTISAN LOUNGE features a humidor stocked with fine cigars, happy hour specials, and ARTISAN AFTERHOURS with DJs spinning Friday and Saturday nights from 10pm to dawn.
Our second stop for the night is going to be Frankies Tiki Room. Frankies, in their own words, is a "Unique combination of south-seas exotica, modern primitivism, with just a hint of Las Vegas kitsch."
If you wear a Hawaiian shirt on fridays, you get your first drink half off!
Frankies was designed and filled to the brim with well-known artists along with tiki/wood carvers from around the world including Bamboo Ben, Shag and Tom "Big Toe Laura" who's original painting you can find on the wall.
Frankies also serves amazing (and lethally strong) exotic drinks in Tiki mugs, which you can buy. There's a ton of different designs and they're all awesome.
After Frankies we're gonna make our last stop of the night Dinos. Dinos prides itself on being "the last neighborhood bar in Vegas."
Dinos is known for it's friendly neighborhood atmosphere, cheap drinks, diverse crowd, and awesome karaoke on Thurs, Fri, and Sat. nights.
So, if you're feeling like a night on the town, meet up with us at the Artisan around 10pm! And, as always, if you can't make it out, check our blog tomorrow for updates!
