How Vegas’ New Gay Lounge The Garden Opened During a Health Crisis

Opening an LGBTQ+ business is never easy — especially in the middle of a health crisis.However, Eduardo Cordova (pictured) managed to do just that. His new gay “ultralounge” and restaurant, The Garden Las Vegas, opened in the Arts District this month amid a slew of red tape and restrictions.
While the establishment still launched, plans had to be amended to accomodate ever-changing health codes. For example, finishing the kitchen had to be prioritized as Nevada rules regarding restaurants and bars differed. Brunch is coming soon.
Below, Cordova, a longtime veteran of LGBTQ+ events and nightlife, discusses the challenges of opening The Garden and some of its distinguishing features in the Vegas scene. He also shared with The Advocate photos of The Garden, a mid-century-style gem with a garden patio, fountains, chandeliers, and a fireplace that also doubles as a DJ booth. Learn more on The Garden’s Facebook page.
Note: Masks are now required in Vegas, a rule that was imposed after these photos were taken.
