Just a few weeks after news that the long-empty former dance wear shop will become another Fremont Street bar soon comes another positive development for Fremont East. Tony Hsieh, the mastermind behind Zappos and fellow fan of Downtown Las Vegas, has acquired the Fremont East building that houses The Griffin and Downtown Cocktail Room. While no changes are planned for those beloved establishments (whew!), this should bring an end to the blight that is the former 7-Eleven space next to DCR.
Tony Hsieh is making things happen downtown. In addition to moving the Zappos headquarters, his Downtown Project is investing in startup business in the area. We can’t wait to see what goodness he has planned for his newly acquired storefront space.
