Velveteen Rabbit

Downtown Las Vegas has a new bar for patrons who like their craft cocktails with a shot of whimsy. Sisters Pamela and Christina Dylag created Velveteen Rabbit, a little-known gem of a parlor in the arts district. The Victorian-style space features conversation-starting nooks adorned with mismatched period furniture in purple and yellow hues. Other touches include fresh flowers, a stenciled rabbit atop a whiskey sour, and draught handles fashioned from mannequin hands with everything from $3 Schlitz to $20 local brews on tap.

1218 S. Main St.
