18bin Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant & décor: 18bin in the heart of the Las Vegas Arts District offers a varied menu amidst a cool vibe befitting its location adjacent to The Arts Factory warehouse and gallery. The “bin” in the name alludes to the group’s 702bin in the Downtown Container Park, and the “18” references the historic 18b Arts District site spanning 18 blocks with dozens of art galleries and studios. An eclectic décor with artwork and murals by local artists, colored windows, mismatched vintage hanging lights, rustic wood tables and flooring, and plush brown leather booths is joined by a patio with trees, vines, flower beds, herbs, and an artistic functional wood-carved creation of a table and chairs.

Likes: Prices are reasonable considering the quality and generous portions, and are not elevated during the monthly First Friday event, which attracts a huge crowd.
Dislikes: Dessert options are limited, with only one available.

Food & Drinks: The menu changes with the seasons, and may include beet salad with grapefruit segments and charred grapefruit vinaigrette; carrot-parsnip hummus; clam bake with potatoes, kalamata olives, white wine and chorizo; jambalaya made with andouille sausage and herb-marinated chicken served with long grain rice and Southern spicy sauce chicken lollipops; and bacon-crusted monkey bread topped with pork belly-infused caramel. Complementing the food is an international beer selection, most of which are not found everywhere, such as Einstok White Ale and Andechs Doppelbock Dunkel; and a large spirits list with bourbon, whiskey, scotch, rye, mezcals and tequilas, gin, rum, vodka and liqueurs. Wine is also served. Daily happy hour is from 3 p.m.-6 p.m. with draft pints beginning at $3.25, house wine and well drinks for $5.50 and food like three roast beef sliders for $8. Note: Although the address is 107 E. Charleston Blvd., guests enter the restaurant from Boulder Avenue. Usually parking is not a problem as there is a lot near the entrance, but if you go during the aforementioned monthly First Friday, the street is blocked off so you’ll need to park a few blocks away (if you can find any parking).
