A massive new motorcycle-influenced cafe and bar has come roaring into the Arts District Downtown Las Vegas, two years after first being announced. Bike Shed Moto Co., based out of London, has opened its doors at 1580 S. Industrial Street, across from the Flying Embers Taproom and just down the street from Caboco, with plans to bring this section of Los Angeles all the deep leather, wood, and motorcycle talk it can handle.
Since 2011, the Bike Shed has been a place of Common Ground, where people from all walks of life come together to share their passion for two-wheels, whether they ride a motorcycle or not. For the People who love Motorcycles, and the People who love People who love Motorcycles. Motorcycle enthusiasts Leave their differences at the door to enjoy an inclusive, welcoming space, whoever you are and wherever you come from.
Consider Bike Shed to be a one-stop shop for a certain kind of moto-loving Angeleno — or anyone who just feels like a bite to eat and a comfy couch in the Arts District. Diners, fans, and anyone can come through basically any time from 9 a.m. to midnight (or later), seven days a week, to peruse the giant multi-hyphenate space; and more... The decor inside is a mix of vintage charm — brick, leather, exposed beams, poured cement — and modern touches. There is a wraparound bar, and seating for nearly 300 diners and drinkers at a clip. There are rare, vintage bikes hanging around, places to pick up a new set of riding gloves, and a shiny white-tiled barbershop to keep the cut looking fresh. Naturally, being a motorcycle owner is not required for admission or anything, but given the artwork on the walls and the conversations at most tables, having at least an appreciation for motorcycle culture might help.
If you are in the Arts District Downtown Las Vegas this is a great place, membership not required....BIKE SHED MOTO CO.
