Cockroach Theatre began with a midnight performance of LINE by Israel Horovitz in December of 2002 (above). Friends for years, and having studied together in the theater department at University of Nevada Las Vegas we decided to produce the type of theatre we hadn't seen in Las Vegas. Directed by the late local critic Tony DelValle, Israel Horovits' LINE was an unexpected critical and popular success. Excitement carried us to another midnight production, Sam Shepard's Cowboy Mouth, as an outdoor immersive run in the back-lot of an antique store in what was [then] a quite seedy part of downtown Las Vegas. The ball had begun to roll. A nomadic bunch, we produced plays frenectially over the next six months, performing in any space we could find, saving money, and picking up new members along the way. Our first year as a theatre company culminated in establishing ourselves as a recognized 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, a growing list of site-specific productions, and a month-long run of a world preimiere at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival (2003). Upon arriving back to Vegas from the Fringe, a core group began seeking an identity. Cockroach continued its nomdic tendicies, including a series of environmental theatre productions ensued in found spaces across the Las Vegas Valley. Producing a critically acclaimed production of Albert Camus's Caligula in a small downtown performance space in the Arts Factory. This is where Cockroach found its aesthetic. Performing in found spaces, junkyards, parks, warehouses, showrooms, taught us to be resourceful and we to adapted the plays we wanted to produce into any space that would suit the story being told. Not unlike our namesake, COCKROACH became a metaphore synonymous with survival, resilience, and turning resource constraint into a opportunity to create exciting, visceral theatre. We decided that if Cockroach Theatre was going to find permanence, we needed a permanent, or at least consistent place to produce. Cockroach Theatre opened Creative Studios LV in a large, live/work warehouse and produced and developed numerous successful productions there, namely Will Eno's The Flu Season, and John Patrick Shanley's Danny and the Deep Blue Sea. Our vision from the beginning was to find a home downtown. By 2011, a local developer and longtime patron had begun work reinventing a dusty old warehouse in the Arts District into a beautiful creative complex of galleries and studios, what became ART SQUARE, and approached us about creating an intimate performance space within: ART SQUARE THEATRE (www.Artsquaretheartelv.com) Although we had limited resources, we were determined to find away to make it happen. Crowd-funding was just gaining steam; so we created an online campaign to help make our long-held dream a reality through the support of 167 incredible donors (listed on our 'supporters' page), and months of planning and hard work by dedicated volunteers, we opened Art Square Theatre; Cockroach Theatre's new home in the heart of downtown's 18b Arts District.
A new Thai restaurant inspired by traditional flavors of Thailand’s best food from around the country. Our chef and owner was born in Bangkok, but his father was from Trang ( southern Thailand close by Phuket ). He grew up with both Bangkok street food and Southern Thai style food at home. Every morning before school his grandmother would take him to the local food market to buy the freshest ingredients to cook at home. At the age of 5, His mother and the nanny taught him how to cook. He spent a lot of time every summer breaks from school in Roi Et ( northeastern Thailand ) where his grandmother lived, and was lucky enough to explore to the incredible great suburb lifestyle filled with wildlife animals for hunting, game, and most importantly, food cultures. He enjoyed a lot of homemade food around the area. By the time he was 11 years old, he had the opportunity to move again with his mother to Lampang ( northern Thailand next to Chiang Mai ) and once again was explored to a totally different lifestyle and uniqe food culture. He came to Las Vegas by the age of 17 in 1994 straight from Bangkok, Thailand. ( where you can find the best Thai food.) That is why D E THAI KITCHEN is influenced by the best Thai food from all around the country. We hope you enjoyed our story and let the journey continues.

Dray, one of the pioneers of the Las Vegas art scene as both artist and gallery owner, is bringing it back home in more ways than one. After several years away from Las Vegas exploring the “investigative field of experience,” Dray has returned to the heart of 18B with Dray Studio & Gallery, a second-floor space in the Arts Factory Dray is an internationally recognized and published painter best known for his large scale murals, musical themed abstract canvases and colorful portraits of beautiful women. His work has been exhibited at the Majorie Barrick Museum at UNLV and is in the permanent collection of the Hispanic Museum of Nevada. He was one of the first local artists to live and work in the downtown Las Vegas arts district. Highly regarded by veterans of the Vegas visual arts scene for his efforts in helping cultivate the cultural zone that now plays host to monthly First Friday festivals. He has served on the First Friday Advisory Committee, a 15 member board that plans and impliments First Friday, downtown’s monthly event that draws as many as 10,000 visitors at a time to the Arts District. His approach as an artist is fused with an abiding interest in community and inspiring the youth. Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA in 1966, Dray is primarily a self-taught painter. His work is influenced by abstract expressionism and street art. Dray began to focus even more on just visual arts when he moved from Los Angeles to Las Vegas at the turn of the century. This move marked his decision to devote all of his time to developing his artistic vision as a painter. His subsequent travels to Sri Lanka, Singapore, Atlanta and three years in San Francisco ¬allowed him to gain insight that influenced the direction of his career and honed his artistic vision, which he brought back to Las Vegas recently along with a rejuvenated spirit and gallery.
Eclipse Theaters Luxury Cinema Experience The Eclipse concept of luxury is to emphasize the sensory experience for the customers, surrounding the film exhibition with additional services intended to ‘delight’ and astonish guests. Brief description of the Eclipse experience: Because all of our guests are important to us, there is only one price level for customers: Prime, where guests can experience in-theater food and beverage service throughout the film. The VIP Prime seats are equipped with a convenient call button to request your server anytime. In the Prime area, the seating is designed with wide aisles and stadium risers to prevent anyone walking in front of you during the movie. With an elaborate restaurant style menu, the food items are specifically designed for “dining in the dark.” The menu features primarily finger foods like soft warm pretzels, wagyu beef sliders, chicken lollipops, and buffalo chicken flatbread. The drink menu offers an extensive selection of wine, beer, and craft cocktails. The lobby looks like a modern hotel than a traditional movie theater. The ultra-lounge and bar looks like an exclusive, elegant, and well-furnished venue suitable for date night, after work mixer, or cocktail party. Above the bar, several flat screen tv screens show sporting events. Around the lounge area are comforters, stools, tables, and chairs all arranged to encourage a vibrant atmosphere. Ticket purchases are facilitated by a either our user friendly website, fully automated touch screen system, which allows guests to choose specific seat location in their theatre, or through a ‘concierge desk’ staffed by knowledgeable service clerks. Another distinguishing feature is the movie theaters themselves, eight of which are available, and which are highlighted by striking leather chaise-style lounge reclining seats, which have full electronic control and provide a large footprint per patron. Each seat has a side table with a call button and a moveable glass tray to allow food and drinks to be safely served. The fourth feature of the Eclipse movie theatre service is that of in-theatre dining service. Movie watchers place their food and drinks order during the previews prior to the main movie show and receive their food and drinks to consume during the show. Alcoholic drinks are available as part of the broader menu offering. Therefore, at the heart of the Eclipse guest experience is a strong alignment of service and convenience with a heavy emphasis on the physical infrastructure: luxury seats and décor (even well-furnished bathrooms to convey a luxurious feel). Unique offerings such as VIP box suites, the comfortable seats and the quality of sounds and images, all work to make guests realize the transcendent nature of the Eclipse experience.

The Harry Mohney Erotic Museum, also known as the Erotic Heritage Museum, (EHM) was originally created between a partnership of a Preacher and a Pornographer. Rev. Ted McIlvenna and Harry Mohney agreed to work together to create the Las Vegas Erotic Heritage Museum and maintain a mission of preservation for erotic artifacts, fine art, and film. The EHM houses more than 24,000 square feet of permanent and featured exhibits designed to preserve wonders of the erotic imagination as depicted through the artistic expression of acts of sex and love. It is dedicated to the belief that sexual pleasure and fun are natural aspects of the human experience, that such pleasure must be made available to all, and that our individual sexuality belongs to each of us. The Museum is dedicated to the preservation of great erotic heritage that is typically undervalued, yet is of tremendous importance. Our sole purpose is to perform educational, scientific, and literary functions relating to sexual, emotional, mental, and physical health. We have a calendar full of educational workshops and lectures throughout the year. The Museum is also available for special events, and is home to the world's only Eros Chapel Theatre.

I am a fine art photographer that has recently relocated to Las Vegas.

I already have a number of (what I consider iconic) photographs of downtown and the surrounding area. And I am actively promoting the arts and the arts district here both on social media and by being out in the community and engaging. https://johnvail.net/journal

Joseph Watson Joseph Watson is a graduate of the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. He has established himself as a strong and reliable force in the Las Vegas Arts Community and is quickly making his presence known more broadly. He has artwork is available at Michael’s Arts & Crafts and Hobby Lobby. The Pacific Tile Art Studio also sells Joseph’s arts and murals. The Joseph Watson Collection of art consists of two styles of fine art. The first is the sophisticated décor style. This is his commercially accepted art. It involved subject matter such as ocean life to delicious seafood dishes to African influenced imagery. The surface is swirled with gesso, and then painted with acrylics. The result is a rich balanced piece that would be welcome in any well-designed interior. The second style is more “street.” This style targets the younger market and creates imagery ranging from busy, urban flea market scenes to uncomfortable bus rides. This method is usually a mix between tight pencil sketching combined with the latest digital painting techniques to create some of the most striking scenes. Joseph is usually spotted at the Arts Factory or walking around the massive First Friday event in the Arts District. Hours of operation Wed-Th 12:00pm-4:00pm Saturday 12:00-6:00pm
