Pre-Prohibition era bar opens in downtown Las Vegas

By JoAnna Haugen
The newest addition to downtown Las Vegas is Commonwealth, a 6,000-square-foot cocktail bar inspired by pre-Prohibition era design and drinks. Celebrating a grand opening on Dec. 12, the lounge will feature a rooftop bar for live music and a backroom speakeasy.

Commonwealth’s cocktails will emphasize fresh ingredients, spices and flavors. New drinks will be introduced seasonally, and several signature cocktails will remain on the bar menu year round. Highlights of the cocktail menu include the Son of Man, which includes Hangar One Spiced Pear vodka, Berentzen Apple liqueur, lemon, lime and simple syrup and garnished with a lime-soaked apple slice (featured on the “Common” section of the drink menu), and the Sidecar, made with Hennessy VS cognac, lemon and simple syrup (featured on the “Wealth” section of the drink menu).

The bar will be open Tuesdays through Fridays from 5 p.m. to close and noon to close on Saturdays.
