I hope they stick to that, since Vegas tends to raise prices on just about everything when it's a high occupancy weekend. For example, the bar over at New York New York that has the dualing pianos didn't use to charge any cover, then a holiday weekend came, and BAM, up went a cover charge! Again, I hope they stick to that "no cover until 10" policy.



So true, I dig the piano bar and every once in a while I show up and for no reason at all they chaging a cover!!!! freaking VEGAS

Dawn Tiki, I saw your post and then it was gone?
Well anyway - in answer to the question that used to be there - This is not a typical Tiki Central Bus Crawl, it's more like an educational field trip about cocktail culture, etc. So if your kids are into looking at buildings and signs and learning about history - they'd be welcome. But as a parent you should know that drinking and general carousing also will be encouraged...

I talked to someone at Venus this last week about getting in on Friday Night and they said something about the best way to guaruntee getting a large group in with no cover is to "pre-buy bottles"
it wasn't completely clear what he meant - but he seemed to imply that if you buy a certain amount of drinks in advance, that you get a certain amount of VIP (no cover - no waiting) entries... I don't have time to look further into this with the tour and all - anyone else want to look into coordinating this?
I know we can probably drink our way through the door here...

My whole plan is to just get there early. Most people start going out to the clubs in Vegas around 10:00pm. I'm usually well into the night by that time. As long as everyone gets in, the music is better than what they usually play, and the fire blowing bartenders tone it down a bit, everything will be fine with me.

I see roughly 20 people have committed, so I am going to rent a 25 seater bus. If anyone else wants to join the tour - speak up soon!

If anyone wants to go to any bars that aren't Taboo Cove here's my recommendations. You may find me at any of these watering holes throughout the weekend (on Thursday night for sure and other nights only if I can tear myself away from the bands at the Gold Coast), but you won't find me at Taboo Cove.

(warning: current existance of these bars unknown)

Sky Lounge at the polo towers (swanky old-style lounge with great views):

http://www.vegas.com/nightlife/bars/skylounge.html

Pogo's Tavern, especially on Friday nights for seeing big band jazz veterans:

http://www.vegas.com/nightlife/bars/pogos.html

The Dispensary Lounge, complete with water wheel:

http://www.vegas.com/nightlife/bars/dispensarylounge.html

The Peppermill Lounge for 70s porn fantasies:

http://www.vegas.com/nightlife/bars/peppermill.html

Algiers Cocktail Lounge, 2845 Las Vegas Blvd. S., 735-3311 The googiest bar in town.

Atomic Liquor Store, 917 Fremont St., 384-7371. Dive in seedy neighborhood with great neon sign and pretty good CD jukebox.

The Double Down Saloon, near the Hard Rock:

http://www.vegas.com/nightlife/bars/doubledown.html

Champagne's Cafe, classic lounge w/ 45 jukebox and red flocked wallpaper:

jab or anyone else...

Have you been to any of these joints?

Cariba Charlies, 4835 S. Rainbow Blvd., 579-0217. Supposed to be tropical theme with huts and fish decorations.
Office 7 Lounge, 2660 S. Maryland Pkwy., 737-1966. Supposed to be a bar and grill with an island motif.
Ukulele Lounge, 620 Las Vegas Blvd. N., 382-7364. don't know anything but the name - and drove by the building when it was closed - just a big square concrete box north of downtown.

The Algiers and Atomic Liquor are both on our tour route and were still around as of last week
The Dispensary Lounge is actually on the route, too - thanks for the hot tip on that place.
We actually stop for drinks at the Peppermill halfway through the tour - so perhaps we will see you there? The bar manager was unbelievebly nice and said he would get an extra guy on staff to handle a large group of tourists coming through around 7:30 ish.
If Taboo Cove gives us any lip - we should head back to the Peppermill - which is not long for this world. (It is on the same property owned by the La Concha people and if they ever get their financing together, they will be demolished for a new large casino property.)
I also heartily recommend the HorseAround Bar at Circus Circus!
