The Arts District is a fun neighborhood with loads of great spots for your next night out!
The Arts District is a vibrant cultural hub where you can find (you guessed it) a lot of art. However, this trendy neighborhood is home to more than just fantastic galleries. This area, also occasionally referred to as 18b, has some of the best vintage shops, record stores, and generally funky places in the city. It’s also a pretty great place to have a drink. You’ll find cool, indie and eclectic bars boasting top-notch drinks from craft beers to in-house specialty cocktails. A few years back, 2018, the Vegas Arts District debuted an improved Main Street with many remarkable improvements, revitalizing the area. The industrial feel and creative spirit in the Arts District are infectious. These spots are the perfect options for tourists who want to get a sense of the real Vegas and party like the young locals of the city.
