A True Speakeasy on Fremont - The Laundry Room

Spent last weekend in Vegas and while there, read about The Laundry Room. http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-laundry-room-las-vegas
It is located in the back of Commonwealth.
After scouring the internet, I found the "secret" text number and tried to make a reservation. They were booked, but I was persistent and told a bit of a sob story about trying to do something special for my girlfriend on her birthday weekend hoping they could squeeze me in. They did!
$15 cocktails, but they are no joke. Very spirit heavy, but they use great ingredients, and have some impressive house created drinks. It fits maybe 20-25 people max, and has a fantastic vibe with 50's tunes as light background music. The table popcorn was pretty amazing. I have read about their chocolate popcorn, but we ended up with caramel which I was not complaining about.
I have a picture of the "House Rules" on my instagram page (ryanroylance) if anyone wants to check them out.
If you want a unique Vegas experience, it is worth looking into.

cool! this sounds like Bourbon & Branch in San Francisco, which was awesome as well. I'll check it out for our may trip...

$15 "craft" cocktails makes this place like every other place in the Cosmopolitan, just more expensive. Not that to say that any one part of town has to be a certain way, but I fail to see how giving people the illusion of exclusivity and charging them MORE is any different from anything that the Strip has been doing for the last 8-10 years.
Also, New York in 2007 called, it wants its schtick back.

Of course it is a Schtick (popular in NY since the 20's). So is spending $100+ on a meal at any one of dozens of LV restaurants. You do it for the experience. If Subway, PBR, and Jack Daniels are your idea of a vacation, then I can see this not being appealing.
Just like the expensive dinner from time to time, totally worth the splurge.

I think a couple extra bucks per cocktail is a fair price to pay for the exclusion of douchebags, club kids and any other 20-grand-in-credit-card-debt wannabes.
