Was Las Vegas ready for a place like Hogs & Heifers Saloon?
The doors officially opened in September of 2005. If I'm typing this in prep for their 12th anniversary bash in '17, the answer is yes!
After the soft opening and decoration party, what would Hogs be like on the official opening night? I was super excited to find out and couldn't wait to get back with my camera in hand. The energy that experienced on my first assignment with the bar was contagious. I've never seen bartenders dance and entertain like that. Even in an entertainment driven destination like Las Vegas, what H&H was doing was fresh as fuck.
Thank you Hogs and Heifers for bringin' a true party to Sin City. After the introduction of mega clubs to the strip in the early 2000's, Hogs was just what the doctor ordered!
Self proclaimed world's best dive bar photographer. Fuck You, I drink at Hogs!
My name is Cameron Smith, this is my photography studio and farm! We specialize in events, portraits, cocktails and dive bars.. Based in the ATL with frequent trips to Las Vegas and Portland Oregon, we like to city hop. Design, writing, are more things we do on the farm. From blogs to photo books, and below average art that consists mostly of ink drawings, we're creative folks. We're also crazy enough to be house photographers with Hogs & Heifers Saloon in Vegas AND Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans....We see some crazy shit! When not taking pictures of said crazy things, or planning a wedding celebration on a future ranch, you can find us in our garden with the dogs and cats.
Living the green life in East Atlanta for now, Smith Farm in Northern Georgia the future??
