Sometimes It's the Food. Sometimes It's the Music.
Sometimes It's the Freedom to Choose.




Menu by Chef Scott Commings




LAS VEGAS, NV (Aug. 26, 2016) – As if playing the perfect hand, Freedom Beat is a different kind of restaurant that answers Downtown Las Vegas’ desire for an experience attracting a new generation of food and music lovers. With a playful passion for pleasure and creativity, this unique concept is the defining signature as Freedom Beat readies itself for a September opening at Downtown Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.




Freedom Beat is a restaurant and music venue carved out of American bedrock that grooves to the beat of its own drum. Inspired by deliciously diverse Americana food traditions, Freedom Beat satisfies our desire to capture the feelings (and tastes) of the road…whether from the perspective of a hungry traveler along Route 66 to the rock band roadie making his 10th 3000-mile journey on I-90 from Seattle to Boston. Freedom Beat is Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives meets American Pickers. Thankfully, the search for those local favorites will no longer require a long journey; instead, they will be served up with a twist 24/7 at Freedom Beat every day and night.






Conceptualized by 34th Floor Hospitality Group and designed by Bunnyfish Studio with a menu created by Chef Scott Commings (Hell’s Kitchen Season 12 Champion), Freedom Beat’s menu takes its diners on a culinary road trip – from Madison, Wisconsin to Austin, Texas to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado to America’s heartland. Featuring such soon-to-be Las Vegas favorites as Chicken Fried Bacon, Beer Can Chicken and Red, White & Blue Velvet Waffles, the restaurant also offers a cocktail and beer program featuring regional boilermakers, craft beers and signature drinks, that like the food, are inspired by regional favorites and recipes.
Freedom Beat also has a yin for its yang; live musical performances, bringing two halves of something great together. Created as both a dining destination and an intimate, state-of-the-art performance venue, Freedom Beat will seamlessly transform itself with the crash (or splash) of the first cymbal.  
Designed with tiered levels, each table and booth instantly transform into the best seats in the house, featuring sound, lighting and staging developed for the artist with the same precision and expertise as the kitchen was for the chef. Shining the spotlight on an eclectic line-up of performers secured by seasoned talent booker Judy Alberti, ranging from local talent to music inspired by beat poets to rising bands and superstar artists looking to mix-it-up after a large venue concert, Freedom Beat’s goal is to provide artists with the freedom to showcase hits and introduce new material; a no-holds-barred approach ensuring the stage at Freedom Beat will be the site of many “had to be there” moments; always with the goal to be the ultimate musicians joint.
With 160 seats and a generous bar, Freedom Beat will be open 24/7 and is located on the main casino floor of the Downtown Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. For more information, visit:
