Mayor Carolyn Goodman and Councilman Ricki Barlow celebrated the one-of-a-kind 12/12/12 with the grand opening of downtown’s newest addition, Commonwealth.

The evening started with a red ribbon cutting and a toast of Guinness beer with partners Ryan Doherty, Mike Parks and Kenna Warner where Mayor Goodman suggested beer mustaches. Following the ceremony, Mayor Goodman was given a personal tour by the owners including the eclectic art collection and the 2,000-square-foot rooftop where she and Councilman Barlow played a round of the Bimini Ring Game and got a first look at the DJ booth designed by Gabriel Culp. Mayor Goodman was so impressed with the 1952 air compressor tank that she unofficially named it, “Alfred.”

Mayor Goodman presented the owners with a City of Las Vegas Certificate of Recognition marking the grand opening of Commonwealth followed by her best wishes. The opening night continued with guests arriving to check out Fremont’s stylish addition and its signature cocktails including Great Odin’s Raven, a blend of Bacardi rum, Jim Beam bourbon, simple syrup and cream; and Sidecar, a classy mix of Hennessy VS Cognac, lemon and simple syrup.
