Itsy Bitsy: Ramen and Whisky, located at 150 N. Las Vegas Blvd. at the base of The Ogden, introduced the Downtown Las Vegas neighborhood to an intimate Japanese-style tavern and dining experience with its grand opening last night.

To kick off the night, Itsy Bitsy’s partners Ryan Doherty, owner of Corner Bar Management Group; and DJ Five, one of Las Vegas’ top DJs; toasted to the opening of the new restaurant and bar with a celebratory ribbon cutting ceremony. Hundreds of guests, including international house music DJ and producer, David Guetta, sampled a variety of Itsy Bitsy’s signature small plates prepared by Executive Chef Ricardo Romo, including veggie and pork pot stickers, beef and chicken robata skewers, Japanese street corn and mushroom spring rolls. Guests also sipped on handcrafted cocktails, beer and sake including the Sake-To-Me, the Asahi super dry and the Otokoyama “Namacho” sake.

Corner Bar Management Group was founded in December 2012 with the opening of Commonwealth, a pre-Prohibition cocktail style bar on 525 E. Fremont St. in Downtown Las Vegas. The bar was quickly recognized as one of “7 New Reasons to Hit Las Vegas” by the New York Post and its speak-easy, The Laundry Room, was recently named “Best Cocktail Bar of the Year” by Nightclub & Bar and among Playboy’s “Best Bars of 2014.” Shortly following the success of Commonwealth, Park on Fremont opened in March 2013 down the block at 506 E. Fremont St. A popular neighborhood bar and restaurant, Park on Fremont is widely known for its distinctive, whimsical design, handcrafted cocktails and laid back menu. Last fall, Corner Bar introduced two new concepts: Due & Proper and Whist, both located in The District at Green Valley Ranch. All of Corner Bar Management Group’s projects are art, mixology and design forward. Corner Bar Management Group is a partnership between Ryan Doherty and Justin Weniger, along with varying partnerships among the different venues.
