Las Vegas is known for nightlife entertainment. The number of bars to go to in the vibrant city is simply abundant. For this reason, uniqueness has become a major factor in staying ahead of the competition among bars in Las Vegas. People who want to enter the bar industry are exploring ideas to make their business stand out from the rest.
For a bar in Downtown, uniqueness doesn’t seem to be a problem. Specifically located in 1225 S. Main Street, ReBAR is nothing short of unique and innovative. In the simplest way to describe it, it is a combination of a bar and an antique store!
“THE ONLY BAR WHERE EVERYTHING IS FOR SALE”
From the stool you’re sitting on to the glass you’re drinking from, every item in ReBAR is yours to keep or consume for a price! Proceeds from some of the food and drinks on its menu will go to certain charity institutions, which you will know more about as you read this article.
THE ROLE OF CANCER IN THE CREATION OF REBAR
ReBAR was the dream business of entrepreneur and TV producer Derek Stonebarger, one of the co-owners of the antique store and bar. After he was diagnosed with cancer, he decided to finally pursue it. He was in the middle of chemotherapy when the construction of ReBAR began. His cancer was in remission eventually.
You don’t have to have cancer to resonate with Stonebarger. Oftentimes, people delay doing the things they want because of doubts and fears. When the thing on the line is something they are passionate about, they obsess on making it perfect, delaying doing it in fear that it would end up a failure.
Personally, it seems to me that it was cancer that helped Stonebarger realize that life is indeed short. There’s no better way to live life than to seize every moment of every day. Additionally, nothing is ever certain nor perfect in this world. We just make choices and make life happen for us. Kudos to Stonebarger for choosing to make it happen!
PURCHASE FOR A GOOD CAUSE
ReBar offers draft beers, wines, and charitable cocktails. The price starts at $3, $4, and $4 respectively. The profits from the charitable cocktails will go to certain foundations. This includes Nevada Preservation Foundation, Las Vegas Arts District, The Huntridge Foundation, Local Animal Charities, Opportunity Village, and After-School All-Stars.
For the food, ReBAR offers vegan and all-beef bar food. Some of these are Vegan Kalbiesa, John Mull’s sausages, and hotdog. A portion of the sales of John Mull’s sausages served on Great Buns Pretzel Roll will go to the Three Square Food Bank, an organization that provides food assistance to Southern Nevadans.
ReBAR also holds amazing events such as open mic nights! And just to reiterate, the antique items in the bar such as beer steins, cuckoo clocks, and bike parts are all available for purchase!
