Sisters Pamela and Christina Dylag are making a trip to Vegas's downtown arts district even more of a necessity with their introduction of Velveteen Rabbit, a dark, whimsical bar & lounge decorated with unique Victorian-styled furniture (from Vegas!), and serving up serious cocktails and nice craft beers. Hey ladies. There are no TVs, and a variety of small nooks are meant to ignite conversation. The walls don't hurt either. Oh look, another nook. The beer list is ever-changing and meant to be "adventurous", with drafts like German Chocolate Cake Milk Stout, and bottles like
Rick James's Green Flash's Le Freak. See, beer is truly poured by the hands of angels. Or something... They don't go short on ingredients in those cocktails. The stenciled rabbit is reason enough to call this an "Improved Whiskey Sour". Shaking a combination of Bols Genever, crema de mezcal, fig shrub, and peppercorn bacon bitters... ... followed by lighting a lemon peel on fire... ... gets you a "Burning Bush". After a few of 'em, you'll be as zen as the Velveteen himself.
