Will be coming back

Went there with a party of 10 and it was the first time we all agreed that it was a great bar. The Doorman was cordial, the Bartenders creative and talented and the Cocktail Waitresses sweet and attentive. The decor was perfect, dark with a hint of low lighting (giving it that candle light look), leather booth like couches that are very comfortable and the bar elegantly displaying all liquor offered.

I'm going back!

A good place to hide

Dark, comfortable and very very good drinks. Careful, it could turn you into an alcoholic.

Where the ""scene"" comes in a glass

The Association isn't a bar for those people - the ones who can't leave their residence without an entourage and/or can't seem to adequately cover their assets. The dark corners, muddy-colored leather couches and no-nonsense bartending ensure that this classy downtown watering hole keeps its clientele just as classy. Don't come here expecting to order a Diet Red Bull and vodka. The thoughtful drinks menu with stand-out selections like the French 75 and Pisco Sour, is there for a reason. Use it wisely, then sit back and relax with the chill Downtown crowd.

Cocktails for the discerning palate

I'm not a cocktailian, but I do like a good selection of beers whichThe Association has in spades.

It is a bit pricey, but it's one of those bars where you're like ""Woah, hey! Look at me! I'm fancy! I knew about this place! Check me out."" And you can walk by the door with your friends and point it out, and seem like you know a lot about this ""downtown renaissance"". And despite the plentiful reviews you can still mention it and be greeted with curiosity instead of the ""been there, done that"" look that so many other bars elicit.

It's a picture perfect place to toss back a drink or two, without feeling over dressed in your fashionista workday gear. So I likes.

Comfy Lounge

Nice lounge that transports you back to old school Vegas...pre-Wynn. A very dark and cool vibe. I grabbed a glass of red wine and sunk into one of their VERY long leather couches that line one wall. The only problem was that after a couple of mood-enhancing songs (some Sinatra, Nat King Cole, etc.) they started playing some hip-hop. Not appropriate, and I was too lazy to get up to complain. Luckily it switched back to the oldies. Despite the somewhat strange music selection, it was a good place to chat and unwind.
