Binion’s saloon balances old-style swagger with a menu of sandwiches, pizzas, and handcrafted beers, 50-inch plasma televisions, and a fine selection of cigars (starting at $5). Lubricate stomach engines with prime-rib sliders peppered with grilled onions, sautéed mushrooms, and horseradish sauce ($9.95) or garlic lipper chicken wings wearing hot-sauce and ranch or blue-cheese accessories ($6.95). Post premeal noshes take the form of hefty burgers, in which fresh-ground meat is draped in bacon, cheese, and accouterments of choice ($6.25–$9.25), and Chicago–style deep-dish pizzas (starting at $10.95) or specialty pizzas (starting at $11.95). Complement solids with Chicago Brewing Company’s handcrafted microbrews, including Ramblin’ Reck and All Nighter, which can be housed in 64-ounce pitchers ($14) or 100-gallon fish tanks.
For fans of M?tley Cr?e, Vince Neil's Tatuado at Circus Circus is like a museum, rock club, and bar all rolled into one. Inside the main dining room, 22 high-definition flat-screens?plus several projection screens?play a constant mix of rock videos and behind-the-scenes clips of Vince in Vegas. Besides the TVs, guests can marvel at some of Vince's most cherished possessions, including gold M?tley Cr?e records and framed strands of Tommy Lee's hair. In addition to celebrating Vince's hits, his Tatuado honors present-day rocking with weekly events including live bands and "rock-aoke" nights.
Amid all the sweet riffs and eye-catching memorabilia, cooks put their stamp on bar food classics with everything from vegan grilled cheese sandwiches to burgers sandwiched between slices of grilled Krispy Kreme donuts. They even incorporate Vince's Tatuado Tequila into several dishes, such as pan-fired chicken smothered in a tequila-spiked lime sauce. Vince's Tatuado tequila and vodka also flavor specialty cocktails, which complement each hearty feast.
There are more than 100 beers behind the bar at Wicked Vicky Tavern, but the menu isn't difficult to navigate?there's even a "stuff you've heard of" section for the handful of megabrews, although it is relegated to the bottom of the list. The tavern inside the Riviera Hotel & Casino is more proud of its less common bottles, from fruit beers and ciders to the latest seasonal brews from Dogfish Head. The bartenders aren't exactly craft-beer snobs, however: there are also "beertails" such as the Vegas Snake Bite, which combines Fireball whiskey with Magners cider and Pabst Blue Ribbon.
Given the wealth of drink options, it's probably a wise choice for the tavern to keep its food menu simple: classic bar snacks such as wings and fish and chips, burgers, pizza, and a handful of all-day breakfast items. A build-your-own option piles platters with roasted sandwich meats, bread, cheese, and pickles. Breakfast proper entails omelets and French toast with caramelized bananas, while steak and eggs, like any pancakes you stick in your pocket, is available all day.
As weary travelers roll their luggage into the bright Blair House Suits hotel, they might catch distant chatter or the faint hum of Hungry Like the Wolf. If they follow their ear, it would lead them straight to Till's at the Blair—a dimly lit lounge with glimmering flat-screens and beeping gaming machines. Bartenders preside over the lengthy wood bar, doling out specialty draft beers and mixing up a sweeping variety of specialty cocktails—from sweet raspberry martinis to potent Long Island ice teas. Barflies hunch over Black Jack screens, pausing games when chat with pals or tuck into orders of steaks, bacon burgers, and chicken wings arrive. The bar hosts regular karaoke nights, giving guests the only socially acceptable forum outside of a maternity ward for singing in public.
