Individuality has been a driving force in the recent Downtown Las Vegas dining renaissance. No new restaurant in the hip heart of the city is like any other, creating an exciting culinary culture around Fremont East and the Arts District.

But Therapy is taking it a step further. The Fremont Street restaurant and bar has unveiled its own signature whiskey and beer offerings, created through collaboration with other local businesses.

Crafted at Nevada H&C Distilling Company, Therapy Whiskey is smooth with sweet notes of caramel, rye, dried fruit and oak. Buy it by the bottle—exclusive at the restaurant—or give it a spin in cocktail form with the St. Therapy, made with St. Germain, Grand Marnier, grapefruit and mango.

The Downtown hot spot also teams with Able Baker Brewing on Therapy Duck Beer, a strong IPA that clocks in at 7.3 percent ABV. “This will be the first Able Baker Brewing beer created specifically for another bar or restaurant, and we’re thrilled to be doing it for a fantastic venue on Fremont East,” brewer James Manos says.

Both beverages are natural fits for the gastropub-style restaurant’s lunch and dinner menus. Pair the Duck Beer with the Therapy BLT on a toasted croissant, or let the St. Therapy cocktail lead into the crispy Korean barbecue pork belly with grilled peaches and roasted eggplant. Downtown’s got some real flavor.

Therapy at 518 E. Fremont St., 702-912-1622; Sunday-Thursday 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m., Friday & Saturday 11:30 a.m.-midnight.
