Popped in here for a few beers and some dinner. Finding decent beer on the strip is not super easy, so this place gets points just for having a solid beer list. The food here is pretty good too. I had the lobster rolls & the fried pickles. Friendly bartenders. But don’t expect to walk out of here on the cheap. It is really pricey. I think the cheapest draft pour was $9. Some bottles were $30+.
They seem to take a serious interest in beer, offering dozens of taps and bottles, local, regional and imports all represented well. Six beer engines, though none were serving when I visited. Orval and Schlenkerla in bottles and a couple of local hoppy things to sample and review. Solid kitchen as well.
Inside the Crystals right at the entrance to Aria. Very modern decor for a pub. Decent selection overall, especially for LV. Service was very uneven after being there twice. First night server was beer knowledgeable, second night dude had absolutely no clue. Also, their beer menu is idiotic. Except for the dozen or so regular taps, all the rotating ones are only listed by brewery so you have to ask the server what each beer is from each brewery. That’s not fun even when your server knows the beers as ours did first night. But when dude can’t even tell you a single one then it’s VERY annoying. If you don’t want to be a beer bar, don’t. Anyway, food was ok and it’s hard to complain too loudly about any place on the strip offering a few dozen tasty beers.
Kind of in an awkward spot between Aria and the shops but it’s a really beautiful pub, with decent food and relatively shitty service. Great tap list, including a few casks, some limited Firestone Walker stuff. Enjoyed several cask union jacks, but the happy hour price on them was still $13, so yeah super expensive.
Nice looking PUB with an oval bar in the center. Dark wood accents and plenty of seating. Extensive beer list with many European beers as well as some other craft breweries. Goes downhill from there. Food is extremely bland. I had the fish and chips and wife had chicken tacos. Beers are $7-$14 making happy hour the ONLY time to go. I’m a local and I won’t be back. There are better on the Strip.
We sat ourselves down here for lunch, and didn’t move for a very long time. Long enough that my pre-departure walk to the bathroom wasn’t the straightest of lines. Oops.
My wife had a Magic Hat #9, a Green Flash Le Freak, a Tap It IPA, and a Ballast Point Sculpin. I had a Franziskaner Hefe, a Stone Arrogant Bastard, a Sam Adams Nitro Stout, and a Firestone Walker Velvet Merlin. That Sam Adams stout was a bad call but the rest were great.
The food was good, and unlike some of the other places in Vegas serving good beer our server actually knew something about each tap.
Pro tip: you wouldn’t think it, but in the rare event that it’s raining in Las Vegas their patio doesn’t get wet. The angle of the Crystal Shops building above the restaurant juts out over the patio, so my wife and I stayed dry during the showers and downpours that plagued our final day.
