The Arts Factory

Charleston at Main Street, Las Vegas

The epicenter of funky avant-garde local art in Las Vegas, it is an old warehouse that has become home to multiple small art studios and exhibits.  Go during a First Friday night event (first Friday of every month, evenings from about 7 pm) for an unforgettable experience with food, entertainment and lots of people on the street.  There’s a restaurant in the Arts Factory, BarBistro, which bills itself as “eclectic Asian fusion” and is open for lunch and dinner.
