Sand Dollar Lounge to Try Anew in Las Vegas

The famous Sand Dollar Blues Nightclub & Lounge at 3355 Spring Mountain Road in Las Vegas is older than Schep is a pup (and that’s a damn old pup), known for providing some of the best blues music on the planet- let alone Las Vegas. 

Not only that, but every biker that’s anyone has kicked up their boots and stayed awhile at the music venue. 

But, sadly, as with many Las Vegas businesses, it has succumbed to economic plights, closing last month.  

But don’t throw in the towel just yet.  

New owner Steve Champlin says the venue should be back up and swinging sometime over the next couple of weeks.  He says to expect pretty much the same “blues-oriented” Sand Dollar us locals have come to know and love, but with more rotating bands, more benefit events and, eventually, multiple acts slated each night. 

That’s good news for a blues population that has been faced with fewer and fewer Las Vegas venues. 

The dank lighting, aromatic carpet and even the cobwebs taking up corner residences will remain part of the unique ambiance.
