Cocktails are Not Free With Video Poker at 3535 Bar But We're Ok With That

July 9, 2015 at 5:59 PM | by | ()

This writer just made his very first visit to the award-winning 3535 Bar at The Linq Hotel.

Even though there are only six video poker games at the bar, I may have found a new favorite place for cocktails on the Vegas Strip. (Which is good timing since this place just closed.)

While the cocktail shown above doesn’t have fancy ice like some other cocktails at 3535 it did have a delicious mixture of pear, watermelon and a lot of booze. It was perfectly refreshing for a 115 degree afternoon in Vegas. So was the second helping which slowed the day down just a bit.

On the off chance that there's a spot or two open to play video poker, these craft cocktails still aren’t offered at no charge. You can get complimentary well drinks and beer while playing video poker but you’ll have to pay $2 for each of these craft cocktails.

Downtown's Inspire Theater Showcases Free 'Boozy Movies' Series

Where: 107 Las Vegas Blvd S Las Vegas, Nevada [map], 89101
July 1, 2015 at 5:37 PM | by | ()

There have been plenty of new additions to the Fremont East scene for us to crow about. Want a new Urban Market? You got it. A Downtown gay nightlife event? Round two is coming up. An assortment of new restaurants and nightclubs? Ta-da, they're everywhere. And right under our nose is a sorta-free weekly screening of fun films that apparently nobody felt the need to tell us about. For the price of a drink, you can experience "Boozy Movies".

There's a New Bar Coming To The Cosmo, But Where?

May 27, 2015 at 7:52 PM | by | ()

Last May, when The Cosmopolitan was sold to Blackstone Real Estate Partners, changes to the property were expected, especially since the casino-hotel hasn’t had a profitable quarter since opening in December of 2010.

Casino revenue was one of the first items addressed by Blackstone. According to their last quarterly earnings report casino revenue is on the rise so that's that.

Next up were plans to add 46 rooms in empty space in the West Tower. Those rooms are still under construction according to an adviser.

We also haven’t heard much about the space atop the East Tower of the Cosmo. Initial plans were that something “creative” would be added but nothing has been revealed yet. Perhaps a new restaurant or the long rumored Playboy Club will return to Las Vegas.

But surprisingly, it looks like Cosmo might get a new lobby bar before all of this.

Just One Drink: Blueberry Lemon Drop at Trevi

April 28, 2015 at 9:44 AM | by | ()

Sometimes a full restaurant review just won't do. Perhaps, there wasn't time for an A-Z meal. Maybe it's a restaurant we've written about before. Or a dog ate our good pictures. There may still be that one dish or drink worth writing about. Here's the latest installment in our Just One Drink series.

The temperatures will soon be rising so we are on the search for the ideal summer sips. When it’s too hot to sit on a real patio, the indoor patio at Trevi inside the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace fits the bill with fun people watching and tasty cocktails.

Just One Drink At Encore's Eastside Lounge

Where: 3121 Las Vegas Blvd. South [map], 89109
April 6, 2015 at 1:57 PM | by | ()

Sometimes a full restaurant review just won't do. Perhaps, there wasn't time for an A-Z meal. Maybe it's a restaurant we've written about before. Or a dog ate our good pictures. There may still be that one dish or drink worth writing about. Here's the latest installment in our Just One Drink series.

If you’re looking for a tasty cocktail to start your evening, the Eastside Lounge at Encore has a few good ones to choose from. When I know it’s likely to be a long night, I prefer to start things out with something light and delicate so I’ll still be able to enjoy the rest of my evening.

So there’s good news, and there’s bad news. The bad news is the last day to file your taxes is only a couple weeks away. (Fifteen days to be exact, but who’s counting?) The good news is Carmine’s inside The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace will mark the end of tax season with a whiskey tasting… a free whiskey tasting!

March 26, 2015 at 8:31 PM | by | ()

The Strip officially welcomes its newest restaurant, Searsucker, this weekend at Caesars Palace.

The dining spot by Brian Malarkey opens to the public Friday evening, although some lucky luckertons are previewing it tonight. We spied the (almost) Top Chef checking out his newest destination earlier today. The eatery takes over the former Munchbar space adjacent to Omnia and features an eclectic, homey decor, with mismatched chairs, area rugs and rustic woods.

March 19, 2015 at 7:50 PM | by | ()

There are few things that sound as great as the combination of beer and music, at least to this guy. The Vegas Beer and Music Festival combines both and adds a rock n' roll fashion show April 3 at SLS Las Vegas (formerly the Sahara).

The event will bring together more than 50 craft breweries from Las Vegas and southern California, including Banger Brewing, New Belgium and Stone Brewing. The music portion of the festival will include performances by Falling Doves and Dan Fester. The fashion show is hosted by Romantic Rock. You can see a sample of the show here. (Click if like rock chicks in bikinis.)

Open Bar Options On And Off The Strip

March 16, 2015 at 3:05 PM | by | ()

Drinks from Double Barrel Roadhouse.

VegasChatter Twitter follower @wclsc59 recently asked us about the best Vegas venues for open bar options. If you’re aiming to drink for an extended period of time, the standard $12-$14 cocktails at many bars will add up quick. Many open bar options will be more budget friendly, but remember, just because your wallet can handle it, doesn’t mean your liver can!

If you’re in the ‘burbs out at Red Rock's Mercadito (or can get there), brunch comes with a two-hour open bar featuring cocktails, wine or beer plus three brunch items to share. It’s $38.50 per guest and includes standard brunch drinks like margaritas, mimosas, Bloody Marys and a variety of fruity concoctions.
