At long last, the 56,000-square-foot Container Park from Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh and his Downtown Project urban redevelopment company opens this afternoon to showcase dining options, boutiques and more in pre-built shipping containers and purpose-built "X Cube" building structures.

Enter through Fremont Street to access the park that contains The Catalyst Dome, a 360-degree video projection space, the fire-breathing praying mantis from Burning Man and a 24-foot Swiss Family Robinson tree house.

The Container Park itself will be free of charge and open from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. weekdays and until 1 a.m on weekends. Retailers open at 10 a.m. and close at 9 p.m. during the week and 11 p.m. on weekends. Restaurants open at 11 a.m. close at 11 p.m. and stay open until 1 a.m. weekends. Individual tenants can choose their own schedules within those park guidelines. Curfew hours for those under 21 will apply when necessary.

Here's a look at all the retail options anticipated in the park:

Bolt Barbers: The first Nevada outpost for infamous Los Angeles barbershop. They occupy the most interesting building on the site, and maybe Downtown, in a former train box car and caboose behind the main stage.
