Downtown Bar Set For Another Blast

(Las Vegas, NV) — A longtime downtown Vegas business is getting a new lease on life. Atomic Liquors closed its doors last year.

The Fremont Street venue, which has the city’s oldest liquor license, also has new owners. They plan to restore the bar in time for a December opening. It first opened in 1945 as a café, but the rooftop soon became a place for people to drink and watch atomic testing in Southern Nevada.

That earned the business a new name in 1952. It soon became a popular watering hole for residents and famous customers such as Bugsy Siegel, Clint Eastwood and members of the Rat Pack.

The new owners plan to make Atomic Liquors a destination for live music and independent films.
