Commonwealth, located in the revitalized Fremont East District of Downtown Las Vegas, will host “Monsters Ball,” a Halloween-themed bash on Friday, Oct. 31, starting at 7 p.m.
This festive celebration will feature specialty themed cocktails such as The Ghoul Digger, a concoction of bourbon whiskey, honey, fresh lemon and candy corn; A Witches Brew created with Guinness beer and apple cider; the Poison Apple, crafted with spiced pear vodka, green apple liqueur, fresh lemon and lime; and the Vamp Tramp, a sexy potion created using cherry noir Grey Goose vodka, raspberry liqueur and cranberry juice.
World renowned burlesque performer Ms. Redd will headline a sequence of sexy burlesque performances starting at 10 p.m. Guests may also enjoy shows from local burlesque master Aya Fontaine and the stunning Zosa Pistola.
Halloween enthusiasts are encouraged to dress to impress at the chance of winning $1,000 for the best overall costume, $500 for the sexiest costume and $500 for the scariest costume. Live DJ sets with sounds by Impact and Cuzzy on the rooftop and DJ Turbulence on the main floor will have goblins and ghosts dancing all night long.
Recently named “Best Las Vegas Cocktail Bar of the Year” in the 2014 Nightlife & Bar Awards and one of the “7 New Reasons to Hit Las Vegas,” by the New York Post, Commonwealth brings a stylish new social scene to the burgeoning bar district in Downtown Las Vegas. The swanky 6,000-square-foot cocktail bar is a collision of art and architectural influences inspired by pre-Prohibition era design and libations. Crystal chandeliers bring a touch of elegance to the overall design, which evokes a worn, industrial ambiance. The cocktail menu combines classic and progressive methods and ingredients to offer drinks like, “Men in Tights” and “Little Hot Mess,” that make an indelible impression. Commonwealth is complete with its very own backroom speakeasy, The Laundry Room, which was recently included in Playboy’s “Best Bars 2014” list in addition to being named ‘Best Cocktail Bar of the Year’ by Nightclub & Bar Media Group. This discrete room provides an intimate setting featuring a boozeologist and drink menu independent of the main bar with a very exclusive admission process providing a focus on the guests and a great attention to detail on their cocktails. A rooftop bar offers an experiential setting with an urban brick feel and 360 degree views of downtown.
Located at 525 E. Fremont St., Commonwealth is open Wednesday through Friday from 6 p.m. to close and 7 p.m. to close on Saturday and Sunday. More information is available at www.CommonwealthLV.com.
