There’s new life in the building on the corner of Fremont and Sixth. What most of us remember as the Beat is now a slick, state-of-the-art eatery with an impressive beverage program. The design at Eureka is up-to-the-minute modern and brings an entirely different vibe to the 5,000-square-foot space, including lots of dark wood with a showcase bar at the center of the action. Those who sidle up can imbibe on creative cocktails like the Holy Smokes, which features bourbon, maple, chocolate, cherry and a fair amount of hickory smoke. Looking for something a little more colorful? Check out the bright, purple Electric Butterfly, which combines immature brandy, rum, butterfly pea tea, lime, chareau aloe, orgeat and a buzz button.

The kitchen prides itself on its burgers, and the must-try might be the Fresno Fig Burger—a pork, rib and Angus beef patty topped with melted goat cheese, bacon, tomato, arugula, spicy porter mustard and fig marmalade. The sweetness is the star, but every element gets its chance to shine. Like its new home on Fremont East,

Eureka promises excitement to go with its tasty grub and beverages.

EUREKA 520 E. Fremont St., 702-570-3660. Monday-Wednesday, 11 a.m.-midnight; Thursday-Friday, 11 a.m.-1 a.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-1 a.m.; Sunday, 10 a.m.-midnight.
