Red Dwarf

Las Vegas
Dive Bar

Featured In

Red Dwarf follows the vision of Russell Gardner, a Vegas native who let his business organically take shape as a tiki bar based on the vibe, shape, and design of the space. There's a certain restraint that works to its advantage. No over-the-top kitsch, gaming, or smoking—although you're welcome to get in a few puffs on the outdoor patio. Much of Red Dwarf's character is based on a punk rock mentality, reflected in a wall of vintage concert posters and an elevated stage that hosts live music—everything from blues and ska to soul and garage rock—and doubles as a makeshift living room with a couch and mismatched chairs. A large wraparound bartop is full of angles to encourage conversation, and there's a lot to discuss with a collection of about a hundred rums and funky cocktails, including a few mashups on traditional tiki classics. The craft beer list rotates regularly. The one constant is the Dwarf Piss, a $4 house lager brewed in partnership with Astronomy Aleworks. It pairs well with the bar's excellent Detroit-style pizza, made with an airy, chewy dough that's pan-proofed and fermented in-house for up to 72 hours.
How to book: Just show up and sit down. You can always place a pizza delivery order online.
