Currently undergoing a major revitalization, Las Vegas’s Historic Commercial Center District will soon be home to a one-of-a-kind steakhouse-meets-bar-meets-art-gallery concept. Opening at 953 E Sahara Ave A12, Arty’s Steakhouse will offer affordable steakhouse fare, a formidable liquor collection, draft beer, and a unique art-focused experience in a massive, atmospheric space.
“We’re focused not just on amazing affordable food, but also on local art and everything that’s happening down here in the Arts District,” owner Derek Stonebarger told What Now on Wednesday.
Stonebarger is the brain behind Rebar + Davy’s, whose approach to antiques has inspired Arty’s plans for local art. With great food from Chef Pedro (whose culinary chops are also forging the Arty’s Steakhouse menu), Rebar offers an eclectic antique-heavy atmosphere where nearly everything is for sale. Now, picture that, but with art—and a massive liquor collection, all in an expansive 10,000-square-foot-space seating up 295 guests. More wild still: most of those seats will be at one incredibly long bar.
The menu will feature dry-aged steaks, offering up filet mignon, porterhouse, t-bones, and other cuts. The selection of sides—including asparagus, mac & cheese, potatoes and more—are another thing that separates Arty’s from other steakhouses: they’re all vegetarian. Add to this more than half a dozen draft beer taps, plus a selection of desserts and dessert cocktails, and you’ve got something unforgettable taking shape.
“Rebar and Davys, and everything myself and Pedro are associated with, is about affordability,” said Stonebarger. “As times are changing, what makes Arty’s so unique is everybody can show up, hopefully without a reservation, get an amazing steak or food item, an amazing dessert, an amazing cocktail, and walk away with a piece of art.”
If you’re looking to check out what’s coming from Arty’s, be sure to stop by the Commercial Center District for a “Steak Peak” of the action on May 18th at 7 p.m. The team from Arty’s Steakhouse will be out front selling drinks and giving out samples of the upcoming restaurants’s Newport Meat porterhouse.
