An open area bar on the way to other things such as the clubs, casinos and restaurants. Nothing special here but you could probably get a better beer here and take it back to the tables if you wanted to.
Just inside the hotel off the strip after crossing the walkway from MGM. A decent little oasis, out in the open, that carries more craft beer than 85% (not a scientific survey) of the other watering holes in this God forsaken city. A few local taps, some offerings from CA, and the rest is a selection of mostly "mainstream" craft.
Visited on several occasions, 2010-2013. Mesmeric bartop inset with pearlescent and glittering spliced rocks. That’s as good as it gets. Tight machines- some not working the bar. Assuming us to be bog standard Miller-swigging chavs the oleaginous barkeep refused to taste our black lager, which was rancidly sour and buttery ("that’s the black lager"). Have been served flat/sour/buttery beer on every visit. Reluctantly I have to concede it’s still worth a visit considering the location; check out the stronger selections (keep better) and swig a quick pint overlooking the floor. Sadly most of the clientele swig pisswatter lager and exorbitant cocktails, hence the lack of turnover and borderline undrinkable beer quality at $10 a pop.
Bright open style bar overlooking the casino slots and tables on the floor below. Pour 24 is open, wait for it, 24 hours and has how many pours? Correct, 24!
We sat and people watched as the bar is located on the walkthrough type corridor to the strip and has some interesting places within eye shot. Houdini’s magic shop didn’t produce much fun for us, but the photo stall next door had us enthralled as tourists (like you and me in LV) had head shots taken and then given supermodel bodies or Elvis, Chipperfield, etc, etc. Strangely no one thin wanted a fat body added to their photo, but loads of large ladies wanted slimmer torso’s in skimpy swimwear for their holiday snap. Even stranger was the crushed ice booth that gave huge containers (different shapes) of coloured ice with added alcohol to crowds of people passing through, or replenshing there empty vessels. Hoards of poeple seemed to be carrying these things about, strapped to their shoulders.
Anyway, back to the bar, $7.50 a pint (May 2010), I had three, the wife two: Stone Ruination, DogFishHead 60 Minute, Stone AB, for me, Sin City Amber and Anchor Steam for the good lady. Staff fine, restocking the bottles when we were sat with them, so not a lot of chatting between us, but they didn’t let us go thirsty, or anyone else for that matter.
This is another of these weird LV bars that I’d have walked right past if it wasn’t for my pre-reading before our visit, glad I found it (not that it’s hard to find).
Open style sports bar on the second level of the casino. Average tap selection. Very loud and noisy, especially the guy at the magic shop cross from the bar. Lacking atmosphere and very poor service.

Smack in the middle of the upper pedway in NYNY, the only ambiance offered by this open-air over-sized kiosk is the fancy glowing countertop. Ridiculously expensive, but with a decent selection of craft from across th US. Bartender was a mute! Not sure if could even speak at all.
I don’t know what to say about the ambiance? You’re sitting essentially in the middle of the casino, with folks strolling by. There is no ’structure’ to define Pour 24. But the selection is interesting, probably the best in LV - which is bizarre to me. Finding Dogfish Head in Vegas was a pleasant surprise! Service is good, prices are high. On future visits, I’ll stop by for the pints, but wouldn’t stay long.
Not much else to add that hasn’t been said about Pour 24. A small bar on the second floor overlooking the casino. Nice tap list of a few local beers and other west coast beers. The bottle list was mostly BMC stuff with a few decent beers mixed in. Also have a full bar.
