Inspired by the children's novel of the same name, the eclectic décor at Velveteen Rabbit in Las Vegas features a neon rabbit, upholstered love seats, hanging industrial-style light bulbs, textured wallpaper and a long wood bar. Artisanal spirits are used to craft signature cocktails, which have included the Sacred Pine, combining mezcal, Zirbenz (pine liqueur from the Alps), pear honey, meringue and nutmeg. No dishes are served here, but food trucks occasionally park outside.
