Commerce Street will soon be home to Liquid Diet, a bar bringing a “post-civilizational” aesthetic to Las Vegas’s burgeoning Gateway District, along with signature drinks and “unexpected nostalgia-inducing treats.”
The focus of the bar’s post-civilizational feel isn’t on doom and gloom but on “the opportunity to come together and connect as a group, free from pre-established ideas about things like class, structure, and rules commonly associated with ‘civilization,’” owner Bret Pfister told What Now Las Vegas in an email conversation on Monday.
“My hope for this venue is a place where people can come to primarily have fun, connect with one another, and get a drink they wouldn’t typically think to order anywhere else.”
The bar will serve pre-batched cocktails using ingredients made in-house, including its juice and soda. “The menu will be tightly curated and will change very frequently,” Pfister said. “There will always be something new and unexpected.”
Located at 1415 S Commerce St, between W Imperial Ave and W Utah Ave, the bar will occupy a 13,44-square-foot building and will also feature a rear patio, according to recent coverage by Eater Las Vegas. The walk to the building through the parking lot will bring guests past new murals as they enter the restaurant space.
“I love Las Vegas and am a very proud resident of this area,” Pfister said. “The sense of community experienced walking around the Gateway District is palpable. I can not wait to be involved further with this neighborhood I love so much.”
Liquid Diet’s opening date has not yet been announced.
