Take 1 Nightclub
East Fremont Entertainment District plans for more clubs and restaurants. Take 1, one of the first nightspots in the area, caters to a variety of patrons. Every first and third Saturdays, comedian J. Reid hosts A.M.P., which stands for art music poetry. The ongoing special event features a collective group of performance poets, as well as musical artists including a band to entertain guests at the special event. On Sundays, there is an afternoon jazz brunch with Larry Wilde and the Gents of Swing that attracts an eclectic set of people.
Take 1, owned by Ben Ardito, a former concert promoter who also managed clubs in Florida, and has as strong belief that dinner shows can still be an attraction for the Las Vegas downtown area. Currently, blues favorite Bobby Jonz from Chicago is showcasing at the dinner shows on Fridays.
