Earlier this summer, the former co-owner of Atomic Liquors opened ReBAR, an Arts District spot that combines the antique shop and the local drinking scene, two staples of Main Street business. Stonebarger was compelled to sell his portion of Atomic after battling cancer, but he received a clean bill of health this April, making his comeback even sweeter. He originally wanted the place to be an antique store that sold simple beers, but—lucky for us—it morphed into a one-of-a-kind concept where the bar has equal importance to the vintage goods. ReBAR sells everything from the bar stools to bar glasses to the bartender’s glasses (OK, so maybe not those). 1225 S. Main St. 702-349-2283.
