Try bottomless brunch and new bar, Corduroy, in downtown Las Vegas

Updated August 3, 2017 - 7:13 pm

Retro feel to new Fremont Street bar Corduroy

Downtown Project will open the doors to its newest watering hole, Corduroy, at 4 p.m. Saturday. The vibe is a nod to great dive bars, while the music will be heavy on rock, with Downtown Project’s director of marketing Bill Kennedy promising “no EDM, no modern rap.” A trippy bubble wall stands behind the bar, where Moscow Mules featuring house-made ginger beer are on tap, and there will always be three beers offered at $3 apiece. Cool touches include a DJ booth decorated with refurbished classic audio equipment, restrooms decorated with ‘80s hair-metal magazine art, a photo booth room and a tiny smoking “lounge,” complete with vintage cigarette machine. Corduroy is at 515 East Fremont St.

Go ahead and sing; you probably know the words

Don’t think you’re a Burt Bacharach fan? Maybe not, but chances are you know a lot of his songs — probably well enough to sing along. We’re talking “The Look of Love,” “I Say A Little Prayer,” “Alfie,” “Any Day Now,” “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head,” “Do You Know the Way To San Jose,” “What The World Needs Now Is Love” and a host of others that became major hits for other artists and are probably ingrained somewhere in your psyche. See how many you remember during An Evening with Burt Bacharach at 7:30 p.m. Friday at The Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall. Tickets start at $29.
