Business in Boulder

Several new businesses have opened recently in Boulder City, and others are making changes to their operations.

Here’s a look at a few of the new establishments in town:

Best Western Hoover Dam Hotel, 704 Nevada Highway

At the site of the former Boulder Suites &Inn, the Best Western Hoover Dam Hotel was renovated in June 2017. The hotel is smoke-free and includes amenities such as an indoor pool, hot tub, weight-lifting equipment, universal gym, laundromat, 24-hour desk and late checkout.

It offers rooms with queen- or king-sized beds that also include a coffee maker, refrigerator, alarm clock, hair dryer, high-speed internet, direct-dial phone, microwave, iron and ironing board. There are also handicapped accessible rooms available.

The Tap, 704 Nevada Highway

The Tap, the on-site restaurant at the Best Western Hoover Dam Hotel, has been open full-time for a little more than a month. Owner Grant Turner said he wants to give its visitors a unique dining experience.

“It’s not just about the food and beverage. It’s about the whole experience,” he said.

The restaurant is open every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner and has indoor and outdoor seating. It also has a full bar, offering 18 craft beers on tap, and features live music.

Hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

Boulder Bargains, 1660 Nevada Highway

This one-stop shop recently opened and sells a variety of items, including gifts, souvenirs and As Seen on TV products. Additionally, items a person might want or need while visiting local recreation areas, including nearby Lake Mead, are available.

It is located in the Marshall Plaza in Boulder City and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, 1010 Nevada Highway

Founded in 1976 in Wilmington, Delaware, by Lois Margolet and her brother, Alan, Capriotti’s was created to give something unique to its customers. Since then it has grown and expanded its locations throughout the country, including in Boulder City.

Recently, the Boulder City location was brought under the new ownership of Corey Melendrez. Melendrez has temporarily closed the store for remodeling with plans for its reopening on Sept. 1.

He said that he is looking forward to doing business in Boulder City.

Water crucial to good health

Drinking enough water every day is good for overall health. As plain drinking water has zero calories, it can also help with managing body weight and reducing caloric intake when substituted for drinks with calories, like regular soda. Drinking water can prevent dehydration, a condition that can cause unclear thinking, result in mood change and cause your body to overheat or lead to constipation and kidney stones.
