In May of 1993, the Enigma first opened its doors. As founder my goals were to provide a comfortable refuge from city stress, and a unique venue for the visual and performing arts. With the help of many people, my goals have been realized, and Enigma continues to evolve each day.
Since the establishment of the cafe, the neighborhood has radically improved, and is now evolving into the Gateway District, the first arts and entertainment quarter for the people who "actually live" in Las Vegas.
In April of 1996, I joined forces with Lenadams Dorris, the founder of The Newsroom, the city's first coffeehouse. To help secure the Enigma's future, together we purchased the property and embarked upon a continuing renovation of its three historic buildings and garden courtyard.
Las Vegas is a vibrant but often difficult city to live in, and finding the humanity behind all the glitz is hard. As partners, Len and I are proud of the art, music, and relationships the Enigma has helped to flourish. We remain dedicated to making safe, beautiful and inspiring space, with the best food and drink we can serve, and we thank you for helping to make it happen.
