If you're the curious traveler who wants to explore beyond the predictably flashy Strip, the Fremont East District is the sport for you. Between Las Vegas Boulevard and Sixth Street, this real-life old-town neighborhood boasts hip bars, bistros, boutiques, and even art studios. Two new establishments epitomize the redevelopment of this once-derelict district: Park on Fremont's ground-level outdoor garden patio attracts a colorful, congenial young crowd with comfort food and specialty Bloody Marys. Prohibition-themed Commonwealth challenges drinkers' expectations with cocktails spiked with a dash of eccentricity. Commonwealth's rooftop bar offers both a view of LED-lit downtown and the neon signs lining East Fremont Street.
