As urban renewal continues Downtown, the one-block stretch of Fremont east of Las Vegas Boulevard (dubbed "Fremont East") remains the hottest of the hot spots, and Commonwealth arguably is the epicenter. Inside, wrought-iron railings, chandeliers, and a tin ceiling create a feeling of old-school opulence without being excessive. Drink options range from hand-crafted cocktails to microbrews; there's also good live music on most nights. For a change of scenery, venture upstairs
to the rooftop bar, or try to secure an invite to the private Laundry Room speakeasy.
