    I know that they were closing the place along with The Sidewalk Cafe early on back. And last I read, they were going to put in a Buca di Beppo. (How original) The Tequila Bar was a great place to get a cold cheap $3 draft beer... And even two years back they were $2! That was great for a big casino hotel. We stay at Ballys and will be there in June. Any really really close joints where we can still get a cheap cold beer? Any progress or update to a restaurant opening there? Will actually kind of miss the affordable American Breakfast the cafe had as well. Oh well.

    Never fear, the plan is to bring back some type of Tequila bar place along with the Buca remodel. They were co-branding tequila taqueria with the Buca launch in the rooms when I was there last week.

    No way stuff will be $2 though right?

    As for OP...$1 Michelobs at Casino Royale is one option. But that's not really really close. Ellis Island beers for $2? I forget what they charge exactly. ABC store at miracle mile shops. They had a 24 oz. Sierra Nevada torpedo for $5...I was surprised by that.

    Stage Door. Right across the street if you exit on the side of the building towards Flamingo. They have cheap beer and interesting individuals.

    This is enlightening news. I'm happy to see it won't be a full Buca, but interested to see a Buca breakfast and buffet. And room service delivered by the pope is good news. I'm sure the shortened hours of room service has been factored into the construction of the cafe kitchen not being there. And a new tequila/ quick bite restaurant/ bar to boot! Yippie! Wonder what the opening dates hold.

    Bally's website now shows these two restaurants opening June 2015. Still hoping the Tequila Taqueria has some amazing happy hour specials... All day!

    Appears as if the Tequila Taqueria opened the last few days here. Wondering when the Buca will open and if the room service is connected to the Buca kitchen.
