I partnered with Atomic Liquor to create this commemorative pin!
Atomic is one of my favorite bars in downtown Las Vegas, rich with history and great memories.
Atomic was issued the first tavern license in Las Vegas, meaning they could operate a bar and also sell liquor to go. The bar was open 24 hours a day. Eventually, they expanded the bar to have a rooftop seating area, where customers could watch the atomic testing 65 miles away while drinking.
Famous people who have visited the bar include Bugsy Siegel, The Rat Pack, Hunter S. Thompson, Clint Eastwood, Robert De Niro and Barbra Streisand. In fact, a bar stool with a star on it sits at the end of the bar, the preferred seat of Barbra Streisand when she visited regularly.
Atomic Liquors has appeared in The Hangover, Casino, The Twilight Zone, and Anthony Bourdain filmed a segment of his show Parts Unknown at the bar in 2013.
