The Downtown Las Vegas Event Center, coupled with the Fremont Street Experience and Mob Museum, are the Top 3 downtown Las Vegas event venues that provide incredible entertainment destinations in the heart of the world’s most exciting city!
The new Downtown Las Vegas Events Center is quickly becoming the premier outdoor concert and sports venue in Las Vegas. This 85,000-square-foot outdoor venue has a maximum capacity of 15,000 guests. The urban venue sits in the heart of downtown, just across from The Downtown Las Vegas hotel/casino, Fremont Street Experience 3rd Street Stage, and corridor that segues to The Mob Museum.
The Downtown Las Vegas Events Center is Downtown’s largest outdoor playground; it includes a 20,000 square-foot air-conditioned pavilion that hosts must-attend music festivals with heavy-hitting rock shows and adrenaline-filled viewing parties! This venue coupled, with a section of the Fremont Street Experience, provides a unique festival-style entertainment experience that is authentic streetscape which can be found nowhere else on the planet!
World’s Largest Video Screen
The free Viva Vision light shows at Fremont Street Experience are a must-see. It is comprised of an overhead curved screen running nearly the length of Fremont Street which also serves as a canopy for the more than 17 million Las Vegas visitors a year who take in the Viva Vision light shows. The 3rd Street Stage is directly under the Viva Vison Light Show and can be contracted in addition to the main stage of the Downtown Las Vegas Event Center for your next corporate Las Vegas event program.
FAB FACT: Viva Vision light shows feature music from The Killers, Heart, Green Day, Imagine Dragons, The Who and Tiesto.
Guests will have the best of both worlds by enjoying live entertainment and a variety of light shows with dazzling, high-resolution imagery and state-of-the-art, 550,000-watt, concert-quality sound. The Viva Vision screen is made up of 12.5 million energy-efficient LED lamps which will amp the event as attendees jaunt down 3rd Street to The Mob Museum!
The Mob Museum
The Mob Museum offers a bold and authentic view of organized crime, from vintage Las Vegas to the back alleys of American cities and—increasingly—across the borders and networks of the entire world. Your event guests will explore the real stories and actual events of Mob history through interactive exhibits and one-of-a-kind Mob and law enforcement artifacts found inside this restored 1933 former courthouse and post office building, located just minutes from Fremont Street.
FAB FACT: Mobster Allen Dorfman (featured in a Mob Museum exhibit), Jimmy Hoffa’s righthand man, was a family friend of Destination Fabulous’ own SVP Trent Allen Parks. He routinely checked in on Mr. Parks’ welfare during his collegiate years at UNLV.
The Mob Museum, as a special event venue, accommodates 600 guests and can be parsed accordingly for networking by segmenting the Courtroom and Oscar B. Goodman Room by setup. Food & beverage stations can be strategically placed on all levels, including The Underground, which features a fully operational speakeasy and distillery, which cannot be missed for imbibing. Travel back in time to the Prohibition era, when thousands of speakeasies operating in hard-to-find places satisfied the nation’s thirst for forbidden spirits.
Informative and entertaining exhibits, videos, and artifacts tell the stories of the Roaring Twenties, which saw the rise of flappers, jazz and the Mob. The speakeasy exhibit is built around a well-stocked bar and a stage for entertainment, which will create a lively environment inspired by that bygone age.
Downtown is where it’s at! To quote Bruno Mars, “Uptown funk you up, uptown funk you up (say whaa?!) Uptown funk you up Aaaaaaow!” Make your next Las Vegas event smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy! ‘Cause uptown funk gon’ give it to you!
Don’t believe me just watch,
