There are more than just three reasons to visit this bar. But the following three explain why this bar is on our Must-Visit list.
Atmosphere at Velveteen Rabbit
Many visitors have praised the atmosphere at the bar. The walls have dark wallpapers and there’s plenty of vintage furniture. The owners bought the furniture inspired by the Victorian era from Las Vegas natives. There are cozy sofas and chairs in every corner. You can find a relaxing nook just for yourself and your friends.
The music sets the atmosphere so that you don’t have to yell to get someone to hear you. We particularly enjoyed listening to The Cure, The Clash, and The Smiths. And that’s only before 9 PM. After that, a DJ takes over on weekends. They play a variety of modern music, which draws in the younger crowd. We felt like we belonged at Velveteen Rabbit Las Vegas.
Theatrical Shows at Velveteen Rabbit
If you are a theatre lover, you’ll be happy to hear that the bar organizes regular theatrical shows. The shows offer a different take on older plays. If you are interested in Shakespeare’s plays, this is the right spot for you.
Velveteen Rabbit Las Vegas organizes productions and combinations of various plays. One of them, for example, is Caesar and Cleopatra. This play is a mash-up of The Tragedy of Julius Caesar and Anthony and Cleopatra.
In January, we enjoyed the play Twelfth Night at Velveteen Rabbit. That was one of the most fascinating plays we have ever seen — mainly because the play’s location wasn’t the theatre stage but a local bar.
Service at Velveteen Rabbit
The first thing we noticed when we sat at the bar was that every staff member had a smile on their face! It was such a surprise to stumble upon people who enjoy their jobs. It seemed like they didn’t have a care in the world. What took us by surprise, additionally, was how professional they were while doing their jobs.
The girls and guys working there were very knowledgeable about the cocktail menu. The mixologists behind the bar seemed skilled and genuinely interested in making the cocktails perfect. We felt very accommodated and would come back to Velveteen Rabbit Las Vegas just for the friendly staff.
