Fremont Street East

Zappos ruining Downtown Las Vegas

Fremont Street East
Do not drink in this area, just avoid it completely
Led by Zappos vision of improving Downtown Las Vegas, Fremont East has become an unfriendly area for tourist and innocent locals alike. Seems the Zappos group wants to get rid of the public drinking that has been a part of Las Vegas long before Zappos was a discount online shoe store. In the long run the plan will hurt Las Vegas Downtown Casinos and the Fremont Street Experience but the one Hotel Casino that will feel it deepest will be The El Cortez. It is not possible to go from the Fremont Street Experience to El Cortez without passing the sacred Zappos ground where You cannot bring Your alcoholic drink with You.
