LAS VEGAS, NV — Fifth Street Gaming, led by CEO Seth Schorr and his partner, Jeffrey Fine, announced today the opening of MOB BAR at 201 North 3rd Street, Las Vegas, 89101. The December 5th opening is historically significant as the 78th anniversary of Repeal Day, the day the 18th Amendment was repealed, ending Prohibition and giving Americans the constitutional right to celebratory drink.
According to Schorr, whose company is also overseeing the redevelopment and management of Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino (formerly Lady Luck Casino Hotel), MOB BAR signals the official rebirth of Downtown3rd (the area surrounding Downtown Grand, Mob Museum and the future Zappos HQ) as the first newly completed venue. “The opening of MOB BAR, along with the redevelopment of Lady Luck and the impending opening of The Mob Museum, are transforming this area of downtown,” said Schorr. “This is an exciting time to be part of the downtown renaissance, and we are proud to play a major role in enhancing Downtown3rd as a major hub of entertainment and hospitality for both locals and tourists.”
MOB BAR replaced the Sidebar space next to Triple George, the highly popular downtown power lunch spot also managed by Fifth Street Gaming. MOB BAR’s renovation included a complete re-design both inside and out – all with a 1920’s Supper Club theme. MOB BAR employees are dressed in period style, and even the glassware is reminiscent of the era. Even the menus were created using handmade paper on a hand press which is consistent with the method of the 1920’s.
MOB BAR’s mixologist created an authentic drink menu “The Hard Stuff,” featuring such cleverly named drinks as “Made” Mojito, Shakedown, The Usual, Brass, Wise Guy and Tommy Gun. Good Eats include value-priced and substantial appetizers such as Spaghetti & Meatball Bites ($5), Chicken Parmesan Sliders ($6), Clams Casino ($7), Shrimp Spiedini ($9) and Caprese Salad ($6). In addition, guests are able to order food from the regular Triple George menu next door.
“Prohibition was a significant day in Mob history, so it’s a great day to re-open and celebrate our new identity.”
MOB BAR is open Monday through Saturday from 4pm – Midnight. For more information, visit www.mobbarlv.com .
