Awash in Vibrant Colors, New Restaurant will be Corner Bar Management’s First Concept Centered on Elevated Cuisine
Peyote, located in downtown Las Vegas at Fergusons Downtown Motel, will celebrate its grand opening on Friday, Sept. 24, with live music and samplings throughout the day for guests. The vibrant new boutique restaurant and bar by Corner Bar Management Company will open for brunch at noon with a commemorative ribbon cutting. In addition to the grand opening ceremony, Peyote is now accepting reservations for its soft opening on Thursday, Sept. 23.
