Welcome To Dana’s Place, The Speakeasy Located In A Las Vegas Dispensary

Published on

California-based beverage company Cannabiners, the developers of one of the first-to-market cannabis-infused beers, announced this week that they have opened the first cannabis speakeasy,” inside the Las Vegas ReLeaf dispensary.

The location, which essentially serves as a small bar and craft beer brewery, will host much of the company’s portfolio of beers and coffees on the menu. 

It’s name, Dana’s Place, holds a special meaning for the company as well, considering the it is named for Dana Bernstein, the daughter of Cannabiniers co-founder Ed Bernstein, who passed away last year after a long battle with Crohn’s disease.

She actually sought relief by using cannabis, and that was kind of the reason why Ed got into the business in the first place, so the name is a tribute to them,” Kevin Love, director of product development told Civilized.

The name was pitched by Cannabiniers partner Al Sasano early into the project’s development.

Ed’s a very humble person, he’d never make a recommendation like that,” Love explained.
Al, who has had a very close relationship with Ed’s entire family, including Dana, came up with the idea as we were thinking of building this brew-pub element in Las Vegas.”

Bernstein ultimately approved of the idea, which Love said led to an especially emotional night during their soft opening in November, for which all of Bernstein’s family was in attendance.

It was kind of beautiful,” said Love. It was also befitting their theme, which he says hopes to promote a sense of personality and community within the industry.

We wanted to knock that wall down and create friendlier environment where people are kind of engaging with one another,” he said. We want to create more of that social, friendly environment, that’s feels like showing up to a friend’s house on the weekend, because you just enjoy being there.”

Another motivating factor for the company was an effort to de-stigmatize non-alcoholic beer.
