The Las Vegas Arts District, otherwise known as 18b, is truly a hidden gem of a neighborhood, tucked away between the ever-ostentatious Strip and lively historic downtown. 18b is a haven for artists working with a variety of media and loaded with galleries, antique and vintage shops with just about everything you can imagine, and a surprisingly great scene for brunch, breweries, and cocktail bars!
Inclusions: Local English-speaking guide
Exclusions: Food and drink, souvenirs, tips and gratuities for the guide
You’ll meet your local guide just outside the Arts Factory, a colorful multi-unit space filled with artists and designers and their incredible work. Here, you’ll get to explore the maze of art-decked hallways and rooms and may even get the opportunity to speak directly with the artists themselves! Hope you packed room in your suitcase: something is bound to catch your eye as the perfect gift or souvenir to remember your Vegas visit.
From here, your guide will introduce you to the neighborhood and how it became a destination for art of all disciplines, from theater performances to burlesque. Speaking of which, when available, you may want to add on admission to Burlesque Hall of Fame, the world’s only museum dedicated to the history, preservation, and future of the art of burlesque!
Just around the corner, we can stop to take in the beautiful Healing Garden, an important and touching memorial dedicated to those who lost their lives in the 2017 Route 91 Harvest Music Festival tragedy. The Garden shows a side of Las Vegas rarely seen on the Strip, and 18b as a strong community of caring individuals.
Along Main Street, we’ll dip into one of the cavernous antique malls where you can browse through the endless bounty of rare, vintage, and collectible goods – make more room in that suitcase. As we stroll, your guide will point out impossibly perfect large-scale murals and graffiti alike, both of which give so much unique character to the area.
To wrap up, you’ll get plenty of recommendations on where to dine any time of the day or drink at one of 18b’s best breweries or cocktail bars.
