    Ok, I've been to the Ballys home page and I cannot figure out where this is in Ballys. I know where Nosh is, but cannot remember seeing this place. Please fill me in if you know. Thank you!

    (Not sure if I should have put this in the restaurant msg board or not). Sorry.

    Kitsi, it is right next to the tequila bar/restaurant kind of a small unasuming entance easy to miss. Not a sidewalk cafe menu is similar to the tequila bar and they may share the same kitchen.:thumbsup:

    Yes, it's by the non working escalators and the non working walkways, that haven't been on line since 1982. Hopefully the new Jubilee escalators/walkways will be working in 2014.

    So, this is up by the front entrance somewhere. I have never noticed this place. Is it up by Nosh? I don't know where that bar is that deadeye mentions. I guess I haven't paid a lot of attention.

    The other thing I remember is the entrance to the walkway to Paris, but that is on the right in the back, close to a corner area with a nightclub? Unless I'm confusing this with another casino, is there a walkway w/stores past Nosh that goes downstairs? Wow, I feel stupid. I've been there playing slots many times.

    Sorry, you must be a newbie.
    The entrance at Bally's to the food court is downstairs near the North Tower elevators. You go down the escalators to the Food Court and Sportsbook. Bally's added Johnny Rockets for your dining pleasure.
    Just remember, at the front of Bally's is the exit to the Strip as well as Nosh, Java Coast, reservation desk, and South/Jubilee Towers/elevators.....the Food Court, Sportsbook, shopping area, pool, North Towers/elevators, Mono, are at the back of Bally's. The Bally's/Paris walkway and shuttles are in the center.

    So, if you are standing by Nosh.....walk back out along side the so called poker room which will be on your right. Veer to the right a bit past the bar with the 7/5 DDB poker that service the poker room. Weave you way through the Top Dollar slot machine bank into the Black Widow games. Turn right down the main aisle. Walk by the UTH tables on your left and the 6/5 BJ and 3 card poker on your right. Waive to Hua, Lois, and Mike. Continue towards the tunnel to Paris. When the main aisle deadends, to the right is the tunnel and to the left are 4 stairs up to more slots at Ballys. Veer slightly left and go up those stairs. At the top of the stairs, turn about 20 degrees to the right and walk past a bunch of unused slot machines. The electronic roulette will be below you on the floor. Look left. There is the Tequila Bar. Say Hi to Jennifer the best bartender at Ballys. Look left. There is tunnel looking like it goes nowhere. Walk in. Go left. Say Hi to Karen the Hostess at the Sidewalk Cafe during breakfast/lunch. Check out the buffet before you order it. It's not Bellagio, but it is not bad. If you are there for dinner, leave and go see Jennifer :)

    Not so much a newbie, just haven't spent time looking around at Ballys. I think I just lose my $$'s in the slots and move on. I've never seen the food court or Sportsbook there. Have not ventured all the way back I guess. Thanks very much for the info. :wave:

    Jennifer is WAY more friendly. I just had my first stay at Bally's and made tons of friends. My host said I gambled 22 hours on day 1, so I met about everyone. Be sure to ask for a room away from Flamingo Rd. There is tons on construction on that side. They may tell you "all rooms are preassigned". Ask for Jose, the front desk manager. Once you get that, slip a $20 bill and ask for a Grand Suite. The place is not too crowded and it is likely your wish will be granted. I mostly stay at Aria, V/P and Wynn, but had a very nice time at Bally's. It was the people, the hotel was run down.

    Thank you, I was wondering about the construction around there. We are checking in on Tuesday, so they shouldn't be very busy I would guess. We just thought we'd try it, good location and we usually stay at Mirage. Sounds like you had a good time there. I hope you won. :) Looks like we will be going to either MGM or MB after Ballys for the rest of the time.
