Yesterday AMA Nevada found out about the new hot spot in downtown Reno, NV. This new place to be used to be a casino, which closed down over two years ago. The owners of the property didn’t want to add another casino in an already saturated market, so instead CommRow was born.

Larry DeVincenzi and Natasha Bourlin came to speak with the AMA students on how they gutted the idea of a casino and created a concept that has never been done before, anywhere! The idea was to change the perception of downtown Reno and make it fun again. 

CommRow has many things to offer, and more things coming in the near future. The project has literally been planned, designed, and opened within a years time frame. There are of course still things that are being learned in this new concept, but with a little help from the people around the Reno area, CommRow will climb to the top.

Within CommRow there are eleven eateries, these are noncommercial entities. The great thing about this place is there is something to eat for any appetite. A person can have Mexican, raw food, coffee, Mediterranean cuisine, sandwiches, ice cream, desserts, smoothies and of course alcohol.  There is also an all around wellness center on the second floor, which hosts a 164′ climbing wall, located on the outside of the building overlooking the well-known downtown arch.

This place is a great venue for children and adults. It is not open 24 hours, but the hours are very flexible. One thing to know is not everything is open when the doors are open, but there is still so much to be done even when one entity is closed. This place will continue to grow within the next few years, including the HangHotel, which will also be pet-friendly or as they put it “people-friendly,” plus there is a concert venue on the third floor that will host many names in the near future.  

I can’t wait to see what else this place has to offer! There is so much room for growth, fun and excitement! This will definitely be the talk of the town!
