Let’s just get this out of the way: The same people own Commonwealth and Vegas Seven. But they don’t own the historic façade of the El Cortez or the spectacular streetscape of Fremont East, and that’s what you get from the rooftop patio of Commonwealth: a photo backdrop that’s like no other in this city. Taking a self-portrait up here is like using that setting on your Mac that puts you in the front seat of a roller coaster, except it’s real. All the visual excitement surrounding you—the striking neon, the revelers on the street below—will make you look like you’re starring in your own movie.
