2014 WINNER: R-J BEST OF LAS VEGAS POLL
BACKSTAGE BAR & BILLIARDS … DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS’
PREMIER ROCK ‘N’ SOUL BAR … WITH BALLS!
Downtown Las Vegas’ premier rock ‘n’ roll bar continues to create a buzz throughout Las Vegas and the Fremont East District! Backstage Bar & Billiards, 601 Fremont St., is one of several unique entertainment experiences created by Hollywood/Las Vegas nightlife impresarios Ava and Big Daddy Carlos.
Co-owner DJ Lethal (Limp Bizkit, House of Pain) is a resident at Triple B along with other world-renowned DJs. The venue also is downtown’s top spot for live acts and comedy (see who’s coming to Triple B here). Triple B features nightly drink specials and midnight $1 beers Tuesday through Thursday. More info can be found on Triple B’s Facebook page.
“Triple B” is part upscale billiards lounge and part rock ‘n’ roll library and homage to live music subculture. Backstage Bar & Billiards’ name originates from literally being backstage to the adjoining Fremont Country Club, downtown’s premier music venue.
Triple B’s eclectic décor includes custom furniture by rock outfitter Anvil Cases, original print concert posters from some of the most famous concerts in the history of rock ‘n’ roll and the “turntable library” covering eight decades. DJ Lethal has collected and contributed a half-million dollars’ worth of memorabilia and legendary concerts are shown on a “Smorgasbord” of visual formats, showcased by an 8-foot-by-20-foot movie screen theater behind the bar.
“The state-of-the-art DJ stage features a bookcase backdrop housing 10,000 pieces of vinyl as a library for all DJs to use,” Ava Berman said. “We also have the only exclusive VIP room in the downtown entertainment district for our special guests to use for private parties and events.”
The Triple B gives everyone the chance to feel like a rock star without any red-rope pretentiousness. … SEE YA BACKSTAGE!!!
