In 1930, an Al Cahlan editorial declared, “No matter what is going on around the rest of the nation, there is no depression in Las Vegas.During the 1930s, Las Vegas and Boulder City began building notoriety for the daytime construction of the Hoover Dam, and for the original red-light district, Block 16. Block 16 was a site of free-flowing liquor, gambling, and legalized prostitution. Vegas's original red-light district offered Dam workers a place to blow off steam and built the foundation of what would become our international reputation as a place to party. Come cap off the first day of our Home + History Las Vegas 2023 with your own cocktails while experiencing what it was like for both Dam workers and locals during Depression era Las Vegas. Ticket price includes two cocktails.
