Need some help getting into the Halloween spirit? A new horror-themed cafe has opened its doors in downtown Las Vegas.
The eatery, named “Nightmare Cafe,”
Philip Martin with Nightmare Cafe says the spooky themed eatery serves up breakfast,brunch, lunch and dinner. In addition to “Southern Comfort” dishes like biscuits and gravy, fried chicken, fried okra and macaroni and cheese, they also serve burgers, chicken wings and chili. Martin says the menu also features vegan options as well. The eatery, which is open year around outside the Halloween season, also has a full bar with horror themed beverages like the “Invisible Man-hattan,” the “Psycho Sour,” the “Bloody Carrie,” “The Slasher” and the “Beetlejuice mourge-arita.”
And in case you want to bring and scare the kids, there are non-alcoholic offerings as well, including “Shirley’s Haunted Temple.”
Martin says Nightmare Cafe is open Sunday through Thursday from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m.
The veil of mystery has been lifted. An ambitious downtown expansion will stretch retailer Nightmare Toys into the space next door and bring a unique, horror-themed bar and restaurant to the southern edge of the Arts District.
The Nightmare Café will move into 1307 S. Commerce Street at the intersection with Colorado Avenue and replace a series of auto shop tenants. Paperwork originally filed with the city late last year included applications for permits to add new restrooms, a kitchen and bar, and also dropped hints that barbecue would feature on the menu.
The exterior has been updated with a plywood mural featuring portraits of Pennywise and Friday the 13th icon Jason Voorhees, created by Tony Castillo and Derek Douglas of The Wall Saints. The team was previously responsible for the indoor murals at close neighbors SerVehZah Craft Beer Bottle Shop & Taproom. Launched in summer 2020, Nightmare Toys quickly became a local hot spot for horror film celebrity appearances and signings, as well as a go to destination for fans tracking down collectibles, masks, and costumes.
