Adults-Only Gay Hotel Opening in Las Vegas

Bent Inn, Las Vegas, a 33-room boutique hotel, is now taking reservations. Slated to open mid-October, the creatively twisted — and definitely different — Bent Inn is the first adults-only gay/locally owned and operated boutique hotel and gastropub in resurgent downtown Las Vegas.

Located East off the beaten Strip, and steps from the Fremont Street Experience, Bent Inn is the ideal destination for the queer community and their allies who want to get into the local adult LGBTQ+ scene or immerse themselves in a visually audacious environment.

Bent Inn was developed by parent company, Escape Resorts, Inc., which is owned and operated by longtime hoteliers Mark Hunter and Greg Kafka. The partners, who are also married, previously owned and operated two well-known gay men's resorts, Escape Resort and Desert Paradise, in Palm Springs, CA.

“Everyone needs a place where they are free to be themselves. And that’s Bent Inn,” says Kafka, who serves as Bent Inn’s chief experience officer. “Although "straight friendly," our goal is to set the travel standard for what we call the Bent Community (the not-so-straight, nerdy cool, khakis-by-day -leather-by-night, pink hair, crew cut, black nail polish, no nail polish, nose ring, hairy, smooth, fem, masc, butch, he, she, they, them, Jack and Coke, dirty martini, daiquiri, top, btm, vers, side, switch). It’s for those of us who make life interesting.”

“We are hiring exceptional staff who will help Bent Inn become a playfully welcoming place for adults where unforgettable experiences and connections are formed.” notes Mark Hunter, chief escape officer. “Community is very important to us, and we have been fortunate to be able to cultivate that at our previous resorts.”

The Bent Inn gastropub, with seating for 50 inside and seasonal outdoor dining, will offer a Bent perspective to traditional gastropub fare, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner with an expanded shareables menu. A poolside food truck serves as an eclectic backdrop with mouth-watering temptations for snacks with a bent flair.

The hotel was originally developed as a small hotel in 1965 called the Moonlight Motel, then transitioned into an apartment complex. The property has been entirely reimagined with a “mid-century meets industrial architecture style” and artistic features throughout vary from wall murals to posters of gay pulp fiction inspired by the ‘50’s-’60’s and offering an attitude of flamboyant mischievousness.

I'm thrilled to hear that Bent Inn in Las Vegas is now taking reservations for its October opening! It's fantastic to see more inclusive and LGBTQ+-friendly spaces opening up. However, I would like to remind everyone to prioritize their safety and well-being during their visit to such vibrant places. It's important to be aware of the potential risks associated with substances like poppers from Rump-pump, which are not only illegal in some places but can also pose health hazards. Let's focus on celebrating the diversity and inclusivity of establishments like Bent Inn while making responsible choices for our enjoyment.
