Urban Neighborhood Dining

Downtown Las Vegas

Opening in 2014, Carson Kitchen was the creation of Las Vegas' hometown favorite chef Kerry Simon and chef/restaurateur Cory Harwell. The plan, to develop the first urban casual eatery inside the repurposed mid-century John E. Carson Hotel—a skeleton of Downtown Las Vegas' yesteryears and now home to an eclectic mix of tenants including a sushi bar, tattoo parlor, pilates studio, creative agencies, donut & coffee bar and Carson Kitchen's playful interpretations of American comfort food.

The renovated space provides multiple atmospheres to indulge, including a swanky bar, the open kitchen expo counter, a community table and the outdoor rooftop patio and bar (yes, that's two bars to choose from). Guests can also take in a cocktail and relax in the now preserved 1950's hotel courtyard, fully outfitted with a lava rock fire pit.

If you're looking for an alternative to The Strip's offerings and simply want to get back to basics, then the creative comfort of Carson Kitchen will bring you back to a time when your grandparents visited Las Vegas.
