The Las Vegas Arts District lies in sharp contrast with the glitz and flamboyance associated with the Las Vegas Boulevard. This relaxed ambiance makes the district a fascinating place to tour, discover gems, and explore the art scene in Las Vegas.
Every month, the 18b Arts district hosts the First Friday Art Walk on the first Friday of the month. This event has grown in popularity over the years and attracts tens of thousands of visitors. In addition to the walk, visitors get to make purchases from the shopping outlets, as well as enjoy live performances. There are many food and beverage outlets on-site too.
The popularity of the First Friday led to the creation of ‘Preview Thursdays.’ Just as the name suggests, this is an event held on the first Thursday of the month. It allows art lovers to explore The Las Vegas Arts District galleries without the swarming crowds that show up on the First Friday.
In addition to Preview Thursdays and First Friday, other hotspots within the district include Graffiti Art, The Lady Silvia, and Blackbird Studios, among others. The Arts Factory is one of the must-visit spots in the area, home to commercial art galleries, a yoga studio, a roller derby skate shop, and a salon.
Lovers of nightlife will enjoy the number of bars in the Arts District. The Artifice is perfect for those who love band music, while Velveteen Rabbit is the go-to place for craft beers. Other options include The Lady Silvia and Bar+Bistro.
