Places To Drink Overlooking The Strip & By The Convention Center
Las Vegas can’t sit still. It must keep evolving by adding new shows, residencies of big-name acts and, of course, bars.
Two of the latter are not open to visitors for the summer of 2019, Re:Match at the LINQ Hotel + Experience and Casbar at the SLS hotel.
Re:Match faces The Strip in an indoor-outdoor patio setting. It has 18 beers on draft ($9), a few cocktails ($14) and frozen drinks (16 & 22 ounces, $11 & $15, $2 extra for premium liquor). Wines and champagne are $12 & 14 a glass. Food is delivered from the Sticky Chicken.
Facing Caesars Palace, it is in a prime mid-Strip location. It also has several TVs and there’s this from the venue’s press release: it has “27 touch screens that create a cohesive underwater world and interactive games.”
Also at the LINQ, the Catalyst Cocktail Bar in the casino now has a stage for bands and a giant TV screen that plays music videos.
At the SLS the CASBAR Lounge takes advantage of a traditional Las Vegas lounge name. The original CASBAR was the frequent home of comedian Don Rickles. George Burns was also a regular. That’s when the hotel was the Sahara, a Moroccan-themed hotel.
Today Casbar Lounge is casino-level lounge with high-end cocktails.
The SLS hotel is next to the convention center and the Las Vegas Monorail pulls right up to its door.
