The face of downtown Las Vegas will be forever changed in the next few weeks when the new Downtown Container Park makes its debut. What began as an empty plot of land has been transformed into a vibrant, walkable retail and entertainment district composed of recycled shipping containers, a train caboose, and Xtreme Cubes which will house cafes & bars, boutiques & galleries, and so much more.
This urban revitalization is the brainchild of the Downtown Project, “a group of passionate people committed to helping to transform Downtown Las Vegas into the most community-focused large city in the world.” This is just one of their many projects which is slowly changing the face of downtown Las Vegas, year by year.
The Downtown Container Park will be host to more than 40 tenants, including Big Ern’s BBQ, The Beatnik coffee shop, Pork & Beans, Pinches Tacos, Sasa Sweets dessert shop, Bin 702 wine bar, The Boozery, and museum stores for the Mob Museum and the Neon Museum. The space with the most flair, though, just might be Bolt Barbers, which will be housed in a vintage train caboose. There is also a children’s playground, outdoor theater, and large public art pieces (including a 40-foot preying mantis that shoots flames).
