       Fremont East District

The city of Las Vegas has created a new entertainment district. Located in the heart of the downtown area, the Fremont East Entertainment District sits as an extension to the popular Fremont Street Experience, which is visited by about 21 million tourists each year.

The city of Las Vegas and Fremont East property owners have committed $5.75 million through a public-private partnership toward a major streetscape installation for the Fremont East Entertainment District. This expansive streetscape will include pedestrian-friendly street redesign, landscaping and retro neon signage. The city is capitalizing on popular nostalgia by reviving the old glamour of vintage Las Vegas.

This new district is designed to lure new entertainment businesses to the area such as the newly opened Griffin lounge.
Eventually, the three-block area will be a destination for the party crowd.

This installation was dedicated on August 24, 2007.
