A VegasChatter Reader Toasts Banger Brewing's Behind-The-Scenes Tour

VegasChatter reader @youstayclassyvegas staying classy at downtown's Banger Brewing.

Downtown Vegas tends to put it all out there. Want a free show? Look up at the five-football-fields long Fremont Street Experience canopy. Want to zipline? Just head to the 12-story-tall slot machine.

That's not to say, however, that there are no hidden gems to uncover. VegasChatter member @youstayclassyvegas stopped by downtown's Neonopolis recently to experience a not-so-widely known, behind-the-scenes tour of Banger Brewing. Here's his experience, in his own words:

At Ghostbar Dayclub, It Can Be Halloween Every Saturday

October 22, 2014 at 8:17 PM | by | Comments (3)

It goes without saying to put your hands up.

With the fall season upon us ushering in cooler weather, the party doesn’t wait until nighttime to get started. Ghostbar Dayclub at Palms throws open the doors to its patio each Saturday this fall and winter for the ultimate indoor-outdoor party atmosphere.

This isn’t the bandage dress and heels crowd you’d expect at a nightclub, but rather an anything goes dress code where crazy costumes are encouraged. Think lots of neon spandex, tutus and furry vests. When we dropped by recently, there was an entire crew in ‘80s workout wear and another dressed as the Power Rangers. In other words, jeans and t-shirts are allowed, but you might actually stand out if you don’t opt for something crazier.

So You Want The Scoop On Getting Drink Tickets With Your Sports Wagers

October 21, 2014 at 12:12 PM | by | Comments (12)

It seems like every time we post an article about what's happening in the sportsbook, the number one question, regardless of the topic, is "Can I get drink tickets there?" After posting last week’s article about getting seats are the Venetian sportsbook on Facebook,  the question about where someone can get drink tickets with their wagers was raised again by VC reader Sarah B.

The short answer is that policies are rarely the same -- even in the same casino at the same time. There are no longer hard and fast rules about drink tickets at any sportsbooks besides CG Technology (Venetian, Cosmopolitan, etc.) In the past, you could expect a drink ticket with your sports bets. This was a time when casinos didn't mind if you sat around watching a game and not spending money. Things have changed over the years and drink tickets are no longer the norm when placing your bets.

Ranking The Chocolate Martinis Of New York-New York's Chocolate Bar

Where: 89109
October 16, 2014 at 1:40 PM | by | Comments (2)

It's one thing to dream about the chocolate-y concotions of New York-New York's new Chocolate Bar. It's another to take them as a personal challenge.

VegasChatter Twitter follower Mark Sibley (@MLSDC) visits Vegas regularly. We know him as a lover of HOTEL32 at Monte Carlo and of fine food (his Twitter stream makes us drool every time), but we had no idea he was sweet on chocolate, too; that is, until he filled us in on his mission to try all seven chocolate martinis at the walk-up bar. While we initially thought he meant all at once, we soon found out he planned to spread them out over the course of four days. Probably, the better route.

Fun Football Promotion At TAG Bar In The Quad

Where: 3535 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109
October 13, 2014 at 5:12 PM | by | Comments (4)

It’s no surprise that this particular VegasChatter'er has something good to say about TAG Bar at The LinQuad. Last weekend, I decided to take in a Sunday morning of football and beer at TAG for the first time.

Since there’s never a lull in the action of 12 football games, it’s surprising that I noticed and took the time to read about a stand-alone pigskin promotion now running at the bar. During Sunday, Mondayand Thursday night games, TAG offers different drink specials based on events that may occur. Check it out:

Bellagio Is Putting The Squeeze On Rival Beverage Programs

Where: 3600 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109

Palazzo may have had the first dedicated juice spot on the Strip with tenant, JuiceFarm, but Bellagio is doing it one better by creating cold-pressed juices on-site.

Within the next few weeks, the resort will begin selling its own line of organic juices at a number of venues, including Palio, Gelato, Snacks, and Jean Philippe Patisserie.

Try To miX In One More Taste Of This Vegas Classic

Where: 3940 Las Vegas Blvd South [map], 89109
October 10, 2014 at 6:06 PM | by | Comments (4)

Delano Las Vegas debuted September 1, but the infusion of new has yet to reach the 64th floor where miX will eventually evolve into French Chef/Restauranteur Alaine Ducasse’s third Rivea restaurant as well as a yet-unnamed integrated lounge concept.

While some of us at VegasChatter feel the time for miX has passed, this writer recommends you plan at least one more visit (or your first one) before this restaurant/nightclub toasts its final sunset.

There's A Happy Hour For Locals At SLS Las Vegas, If You Can Sort It Out

Where: 2535 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109
October 7, 2014 at 4:10 PM | by | Comments (9)

Somewhere along the line SLS Las Vegas decided they loved locals, theoretically putting them in competition for the attention of locals' love meter against another Vegas gambling conglomerate. More love being shot our way is fine by us. The first question this Vegas resident wondered was what benefits would be received by accepting SLS' advances? THE CODE, the resort's players club, lists them as:

· Preferred seating and restaurant reservations
· Preferred room rates and availability
· $5 happy hour drink specials Sunday-Thursday 5pm-8pm
· 2-for-1 admission to The SLS Buffet for breakfast, lunch or dinner Friday-Sunday 8am-9pm
· 25% off treatments in Ciel Spa Sunday-Thursday
· Skip the line on Industry Nights at LiFE & The Sayers Club on Sundays & Foxtail on Mondays

Hard Rock Adds A Side Bet... Bar

Where: 4455 Paradise Rd. [map], 89169
October 6, 2014 at 12:41 PM | by | Comments (4)

If you’ve been to the Hard Rock sportsbook you know that it’s cozy and can get quite full for football. With only seating for about 100, the upside of the small sportsbook is that it has those beautiful new TV screens that you’re used to from CG Technology. If you were in the mood for a drink, however, you’d often have to walk out to one of the bars or the coffee shop. Although, you won't have to venture quite that far, anymore.

The sportsbook at Hard Rock is receiving a semi-expansion and more drink service. The attached bar which was rarely an option has just finished a makeover and is finally open for business, even if it missed the kickoff of football season. The bar will now have a name. From here on out it will be called the Side Bet Bar.

Senor Frog's Changes Hours, Keeps Drink Special

You’ll have fewer hours in the day to hop in the conga line and have shots poured into your mouth at Senor Frog's.

The drinking will start a bit later now at the TI establishment. The bar/restaurant has officially cut back its hours and now opens Sunday through Thursday at 2 p.m. and at noon Friday and Saturday. Previously, the party could begin at 11 a.m. daily. Closing time is still flexible so you’ve got the power to keep the party going on that end, at least.

Nightclub Lifestyle Inspires 'Urban Farm Stand' In Vegas

Where: 9500 S. Eastern Avenue, Suite 110 [map], 89123
September 26, 2014 at 3:05 PM | by | Comments (0)

Getting crazy in Vegas is great while you’re doing it, but when you get back to the "real world"? Not so much. We’ve walked past those oxygen bars and haven’t needed to schedule a visit from Hangover Heaven or hop a ride on the Hangover Bus... yet. While this VegasChatter writer generally leans towards the healthier side of Vegas fun, I've been known to party hearty, too; so, I was definitely interested when invited to check out the remedies offered at Juice NV.

Located just a little southeast of McCarran Airport off I-215, Juice NV takes a natural approach to recovery, turning local produce into bottles of power-packed nutrition. Chef Jermaine Jonas opened the concept this summer and calls it Las Vegas' first "urban farm stand." He used the wild lifestyle of Las Vegas as an inspiration for creating a menu of refreshers, super foods and plant-based drinks designed to fuel people on an extreme Sin City schedule.
