Mark your calendar and get your ticket to the upcoming Tech Cocktail Celebrate event October 6-7 in Downtown Las Vegas. We don’t usually like to brag, but the list of speakers for the conference is amazing, and the startups battling it out are great. You won’t want to miss it!
There are many reasons to visit Downtown Las Vegas (DTLV), especially since it has become an unique vibrant live-work-play community. Catalyzed by the Downtown Project, led by Tony Hsieh, DTLV is a neighborhood buzzing with entrepreneurs and creatives. This will be where Celebrate will bring together entrepreneurs, investors and founders from all over.
But Tech Cocktail knows that conferences is not all about work, it is about meeting the right people and making those connections.
Here are a few places you must visit when you’re in DTLV for Tech Cocktail’s Celebrate.
1. Downtown Container Park
Downtown Container Park is a unique space, a sustainable assortment of small boutiques, galleries, bars, eateries and outdoor spaces as well as entertainment and education programming. Right off the southeast corner of Fremont and Seventh streets, Downtown Container Park spans approximately 19,000 square feet with a mix of 30 shipping containers and 41 multifunctional modular cubes forming its perimeter. 707 E. Fremont St.
DTLV’s co-working facility houses over 200 members and 40 startups across both locations, as well as the VegasTechFund and The Mill. 317 6th Street.
Personally, one of my favorite bars, this bar is Las Vegas old school. The drinks are delicious and affordable, and Anthony Bourdain loves this spot! Atomic, named for a time when customers watched atomic blasts from the roof, was originally built in 1945 and was called Virginia’s Cafe. A great place to discuss business over drinks and great music. 917 Fremont St.
4. The Ogden
Tech Cocktail’s home, the Ogden is actually a residential place, but it includes some great restaurants, such as Rachel’s Kitchen and Wild. Right next to the two restaurant is The Window, a multi-purpose space for you to get some work done while appreciating some art. Ogden is where Downtown Podcast takes place, a weekly video production filmed by friends, community members and visitors to share the stories, ideas and people that make the Downtown Las Vegas community so special. 150 Las Vegas Blvd N.
A fashion incubator, co-working studio and creative community established to support emerging fashion designers. The collaborative studio offers designers professional workspace, an inspiring community and business mentorship. They also have a mini store with unique pieces. 300 N Las Vegas Blvd #120.
6. The Beat
Great coffee and ambience. You can get a vinyl, handcrafted food, beer and wine. It’s a spot where the community gathers to listen to poetry and live music. 520 Fremont St.
Turntable Health is a member-based primary care and wellness ecosystem in Las Vegas. Doctors are available 24/7 by phone, email, or the option to video chat. Members get a health coach that works directly with doctors and nurses to help members reach their goals. 701 Bridger Ave, Suite 150.
GoldSpike is a great spot for co-working or grabbing a bite or drink anytime of day or night (open 24 hours). Make sure to check out the backyard for drink and chat under the stars. 217 N Las Vegas Blvd.
9. Local Motors
A free online and physical workspace to make your vehicle innovations into reality. The Local Motors micro-factory is a unique addition to DTLV. 515 E Stewart Ave.
