The place is a bit of a hike from the Strip. The bartender was friendly and very knowledgeable about the beers they have. There are 50 beer on tap and a large selection of bottled beer to chose from. Selection is good with an occasional limited release beer on tap. The bar area is fairly large with a U shaped bar with video poker machines. This is probably the best place in LV for quality beers, there are no bad choices. A nice oasis in a virtual beer wasteland.
Stopped by a while back during my bachelor party. A cool craft bar with a Vegas feel and good selection overall. Large central bar with seating around and a few TVs. Tap lists on TVs as well. Service was solid but unforgettable. One of the best selections in the area. Decent bottle list too. I did not try the food on my visit. Overall one of the better Las Vegas stops.
Bigger than expected. It is dark inside, but the tables are big and comfy. Service is friendly and knowledgable, but slow as previously stated. Food is solid, or perhaps even better than solid for pub food. 50 taps had some gems. No huge rarities, but a great selection of styles and brewers, with a couple nitro beers I’d never had on nitro before. Bottle selection is great, but ridiculously overpriced, so we didn’t go there.
Awesome spot but way far out of the way for tourists. Inside is pretty dark and forboding. Sat on patio and was beautiful. 50 taps lots of mix in geography. Bottle list is solid and not too expensive. Service was awesome. Food was very good, get the onion rings!
(Visited 08/2014): Aces & Ales’ newest location is on Tenaya Way on the northwest side of Vegas, very close to Tenaya Creek Brewing. There is a fairly large parking lot in front of the building.
The interior is dark, with a U-shaped bar in the middle of the main room that has several TVs above it, and the requisite video poker and keno games on the bar top. Table seating is available as well, and there are separate rooms for bands, games and such. As with the other location, there are video boards behind the bar displaying the draft selections. In addition there is a bottled menu available.
The draught selection is indeed among the best in Vegas, numbering around 50 and featuring breweries like Smog City, Green Flash, Joseph James, Pizza Port, Deschutes, and Alaskan. The bottled selection numbers well over 100 with breweries like FiftyFifty, Stone, Bruery, Firestone Walker, Maui and Ballast Point. Many Belgian options in bottles as well.
Service at the bar on a somewhat busy early weekday evening was good. The bartenders were personable and knowledgeable about the beers.
Food at Aces & Ales is pretty good in terms of bar food. My sandwich was enjoyable.
All in all this place belongs at the top of the list as far as beer spots to visit.
This is the newer location of Aces & Ales...just down the block from Tenaya Creek Brewery (nice one-two punch for craft beer). In my opinion this is easily the best craft beer bar in Vegas...certainly trumping the Freakin’ Frog (now closed for an undetermined time). The draft selection is excellent and the atmosphere, décor, and layout superb. To top it all off...the food is very good for pub food. Best of all though...the staff is great...I had the pleasure of being served and entertained by two wonderful waitresses/bartenders. The best way to describe this location is that it is the Yard House "if" the Yard House wasn’t so corporate and knew how to do their own theme correctly. Basically this place out Yard House’s The Yard House! LOL! (PS...I loved the grilled cheese & bacon...with Tomato Bisque soup too...just like the below reviewer)
What a place!! I went to the other location once which was fine. But the newer Tenaya location is top notch. Vegas is a vast wasteland for craft beer. But Aces and Ales has it together. The atmosphere is fine, but the service I had was excellent. The bartenders were very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. They had a serious stoutfest going on there this particular Saturday night. They even explained why beers were priced higher in the flights (like Ten Fidy on Double Barrel Aging), etc. I had a grilled cheese with bacon and tomato bisque. Delicious! A must visit if you are in Vegas. Probably an expensive cab ride. Lots of hotels nearby though.
Good horseshoe bar with 30+ taps and gaming on bar. The food is top notch with knowledgable staff. Has a patio for cool summer nights and a private room also. Abit out from the tourist of the strip, but makes up with many taps and bottle list. Stop by Tenaya Creek brewery down the street.
Our first visit to Aces & Ales was their first property on Nellis. To us this property feels larger and cleaner, plus there is a longer tap list. The list includes several low volume beers that hard or impossible to find any other place in the LV area. Our server was top notch knowing the beers on tap list and passing along her insight, but allowing the customer to feel there is no wrong decision. Hope they will reconsider bring back chicken and waffles to their menu.
