Meet Filament, the new Fremont Street bar you’ve probably missed

Filament recently opened inside the Fremont Hotel & Casino.

I know it’s hard to believe, since you’re all over everything that happens Downtown, but a new bar opened on Fremont Street and you missed it ... probably because it’s not on Fremont East. It’s called Filament, and it’s inside the Fremont Hotel & Casino. You know, that big red place on the corner of Fremont and Third?

Anyway, it’s got everything you’d expect from a Fremont Street Experience bar ($5 Bud Light or Coors Light drafts, $3 Heinekens, super-sweet frozen daiquiri insanity) and a few surprises, too. It’s a legitimately handsome bar, brand new but with a rustic feel, and there are crafts on tap like New Belgium, Stone and Henderson-based Bad Beat. The house mule ($8) is a simple, satisfying concoction of Tito’s, lime and ginger beer. And unlike some other Fremont Street bars you might be more familiar with, there’s a casino for players, and really no nonsense whatsoever. Seems like a bright idea.

Filament Fremont Casino, 702-385-3232. Sunday-Thursday, 2 p.m.-2 a.m.; Friday & Saturday, 2 p.m.-4 a.m.
