We understand that Downtown Las Vegas can be a unknown quantity for some of you, especially since most of our guests drive to us from the surrounding suburbs of Summerlin, Green Valley, Seven Hills, and the like. Fear not! Getting to Globe Salon is a quick 15-minute jaunt for most, and parking is about as easy as a downtown can get. Keep in mind that, despite our Las Vegas Boulevard address, Soho Lofts, the luxury residential tower that is our home, faces north on Hoover Avenue.

So, parking at Globe Salon? Here you go:

• All of Globe Salon’s free parking is on city streets. That means you’ll need to make sure your car is displaying valid license plates and a current registration sticker.

• Hoover Avenue between Las Vegas Blvd and 4th Street (directly in front of Soho Lofts) is free 3-hour parking. Hooray!

• Hoover Avenue west of 4th Street is free parking without a time limit. Huzzah!

• All along 4th Street is free 2-hour parking, and is usually under-utilized. It’s great for shorter appointments like Fabulous Blowouts, event styles and haircuts.

• Prefer parking in a lot? The lot directly across from us (the Hoover Lot) is a metered city parking lot, generally $1 per hour.

See how simple that is? See you at Globe Salon soon!

In the blink of an eye, we’re past Labor Day, summer is almost over, and we’re getting ready for tonight’s First Friday in the Las Vegas Arts District. Although Globe Salon isn’t hosting a First Friday event this month (watch for details about October’s event soon!), with all that’s happened in our city’s revitalizing center the past few years, downtown is really getting busy. Just take a look at all the events going down in downtown tonight:

• First Friday (and all the wackiness and fun that surrounds it)

• the Pride Parade (and a drag contest on Fremont!)

•  Wicked (at the Smith Center for the Performing Arts)

• Clint Holmes (also at the Smith Center, in the Cabaret Room)

All that is a great sign of how far downtown has come, and it’s welcome activity for all (okay, most…) of us down here. But staging all this fun on one night does present some new challenges for parking and access. If you are going to the Smith Center, their on-site lots and garages should be sufficient for their patrons. But keeping in mind that the Clark County Government Center offers free First Friday parking (with a free shuttle) means that traffic along Grand Central Parkway is going to be heavy; plan accordingly, leave early, and take a healthy dose of patience. (And common sense, if you want to avoid a parking ticket—or, worse, a tow). After all, this is the downtown we’ve been dreaming about.

[Speaking of the Smith Center, let’s remind everyone that we offer an ongoing Smith Center VIP Special. Schedule a pre-performance appointment for an Event Style, a Fabulous Blowout, and/or Make-Up Application, present your same-day show ticket at check-out, and save 30%.]

Party arty, Las Vegas, and have a fantastic time tonight!
