In a city that revels in replication, it’s rare to happen upon a place that can truly be labeled unique. Enter The Cellar Lounge—and do so by first walking down a flight of stairs. That’s right: The place, whose roots date to the ’70s, is an actual cellar, a down-and-dirty underground bar whose clientele can best be described as diverse. Home of Grammy nominated blues guitarist, Billy Ray Charles & his all star “ Boys in the Parking Lot band”, ( Thurs.-Sat. and Mon.),The Cellar lounge has been Las Vegas’ “Diamond in the Rough” underground live music venue and gaming lounge for over 20 years. To add to the mystique and variety The Cellar presents a locals favorite reggae night on Tuesdays, and an acoustic showcase Wednesdays. And if you would like to try the stage at a Vegas legend, come Sundays for Open Mic Night from 8 to 12.
Quite possibly the coolest bar you never knew was there, The Cellar Lounge is hidden within the Gallery of History building, at Sahara Ave and Valley View Blvd. making it tough to find—which in itself is unique. Facebook.com/thecellarlounge.
