LAS VEGAS - Secret password! Sliding doors! Pancakes & Dopamine!
A New Speakeasy On The Strip
Not talking about a James Bond movie, but the Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den at the Resorts World Vegas Hotel.
Kitty Kitty is one of the shiniest new venues on the Strip and has a grungy secret. Beyond the glitz and glamour of Resorts World is a darkly lit, devilishly fun Las Vegas speakeasy that’s hard to find but easy on the eyes.
If you're not familiar, speakeasy bars came into prominence in the United States during the Prohibition era (1920–1933). That's when the sale, manufacture, and transportation of alcoholic beverages was illegal throughout the States.
Where Can I Find The "Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den"
So, when you go, and you're walking through the Famous Foods Street Eats corridor, you'll be looking for a little store called Ms. Meow’s Mamak Stall. It sells a small selection of Asian newspapers and snacks. At the back of the shop is a blue shelf that, when pushed, gives way to Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den.
Before the hostess pushes on the hidden wall, you'll need a secret password. You get to pick your own, and mine was Auric Goldfinger, and hell yea, I'm a YUGE James Bond fanboy.
Walked up to the fabulous hostess and whispered my secret code name. She smiled, walked me to the wall, gave it a gentle push, and VOILA, I'm inside the Kitty Kitty.
Actually, you DON'T need a secret password, but I can DREAM can't I.
My Experience At the Bar
We went on a Wednesday night, and it was not crowded, but you could wait as long as an hour on the weekends.
Inside Kitty Kitty is very intimate, with a long bar, and maybe five tables. There's one mixologist, they used to be called bartenders, and one waitress. They give you a little coaster with QR square to scan for the menu. Two problems. The place is very dark and I had trouble seeing and also didn't have the QR app.
Pancakes & Dopamine Or A One Night Stand?
Asked the mix man to brew me up a little something somethin' and he suggested the Pancakes & Dopamine or, the One Night Stand. We all know pancakes, and for those that don't know Dopamine, it's, simply put, a chemical released in the brain that makes you feel good.
