Located a quick two hours north of Las Vegas is the small unincorporated town of Beatty. In the early to mid 1900s Beatty served as a railroad stop to mining towns like Rhyolite and Bare Mountain. The town of Beatty is home to less than 2000 people and serves as a stop over between Las Vegas and Tonopah. Also a short eight miles west is Death Valley National Park.
While on my way to Rhyolite for some night shots, my friend and I decided to stop in Beatty and grab a quick bite to eat. We decided to check out The Happy Burro Chili and Beer and were blown away at how amazing their award winning chili was. Definitely top three chili’s I’ve had in my entire life.
We then decided to swing over and check out the now closed Angel’s Ladies Brothel. There is no exact address, but from my recollection, it couldn’t have been more than 20 minutes north on the 95 from Beatty. If you miss the big over sized sign that reads “BROTHEL ANGEL’S LADIES”, then you surely will not missed the abandoned airplane directly below the sign.
