On any night of the week, the vibe inside Blondies Sports Bar & Grill is as electric as the neon beer signs and side-by-side big-screen TVs that light up the brick-lined bar. The sights and sounds of UFC matches and NBA games entertain guests as they cut into a rib-eye steak or throw back a freshly poured pint of Bud or Shock Top. Overheard, colorful college football pennants hang from the ceiling, encouraging patrons to get into the competitive spirit themselves during weekly beer pong tourneys.
When envisioning Giuseppe’s, its restaurateurs wanted to create a welcoming 24-hour space for every occasion, including post-casino noshes and family sit-downs. The menu, also available for online orders, boasts seemingly endless varieties of Italian comfort fare such as homemade linguini in white clam sauce, pork parmigiana, and the mammoth half-pound Cajun beef-patty Black ‘n’ Blue burger.
A game is always playing on one of the eatery’s numerous TVs, particularly at the large rectangular bar where every seat has a good view. Knowledgeable bartenders keep the good times coming as they mix favorite cocktails, pour a frothy brew, or pass down the secrets of mixology garnered from the inventor of the appletini, Isaac Newton. Giuseppe’s large space also accommodates parties and banquets of up to 80 people.
The spirit of friendly competition pervades throughout Crowbar. On a Saturday night, you’ll find the Crowbar Poker League vying for the champion jackpot of $2,000, as more casual gamers play rounds of steel-tip darts, pool, and arcade favorites such as Golden Tee. To fuel the rivalries, chefs whip up classic bar fare such as mozzarella sticks, mushroom burgers, and grilled chicken wraps. In addition to the weekend revelry, Crowbar keeps a calendar of special events and 15 gambling machines onsite for midweek statistics-class field trips.

Aces & Ales blends pub-style comfort food and a rotating selection of 22 artisanal beers on tap with musical entertainment, fusing the passions of owner Keri Kelli, craft beer enthusiast and former guitarist for rock legend Alice Cooper. Plucking out distinctive pours more precisely than a neophyte harpist learning "Stairway to Heaven," the staff lines up select imperial stouts and hefeweizens to escort gastropub-inspired bites such as Belgian-style fries with bacon and blue cheese or homemade Maryland crab cakes. The bar's 14 plasma TVs, meanwhile, catch diners' eyes with 55 inches of pro-sports action. A classically trained robot moonlighting as a jukebox emanates waves of nostalgia and patron-selected tunes before local bands take the stage to test the stability of the exposed brick walls, which have previously resonated with the voice of Alice Cooper himself.

Our founder is Sal Durizzo. He immigrated to New York from Naples when he was 12. By the age of 20 he was running Lenny's Pizza in Brooklyn. Later, he bought Lenny's and owned it for 35 years until coming to Las Vegas. Still in Las Vegas after 26 years of making pizza, Sal makes his sauce and dough fresh every day with his secret Italian recipe.
