LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A neighbor to the Arts District, the Gateway District has its own unique charm. There are restaurants, comedy clubs, vintage antique shops and more in the area squared off by Sahara Avenue, Industrial Road, Las Vegas Boulevard, and Imperial Avenue.

This is all in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas.

Now adding to its grid are three new businesses. Tap N Ash Social Club is ready to welcome guests to their high-end cigar lounge no matter if you’re a beginner or a seasoned smoker.

"We’re bringing a new element to the Gateway District and the Downtown Arts District area," said owner Melvin Runles. "The staff is ready. We want to teach folks about cigars."

Also coming to the area is Naakiti Floral Design, excited to be near it's big clients in hospitality and customers that are looking for a simple floral arrangement.

"They get to come in, pick their flowers, and then we design right there in front of them. It’s nice to have a conversation where I can ask personal questions," said Randi Garrett, Naakiti Floral Design owner. "Then, when you’re presenting the arrangement to them, you feel like you were involved with it. Add a little bit more love to it."

Architectural design company SPARC Design Group is taking advantage of the area's growth by setting up shop near the ever-growing list of projects.

Founder of SPARC Design Group, Michael Pancirov, said, "We found a partner here with Randi and Melvin and thought this would be a great opportunity. We’ve been helping them with their architectural needs, and we’ve already seen a fair demand for more work out here as well."

These new businesses are near the corner of Commerce Street and Wyoming Avenue.
