Just returned from a week and thought I would once again report on some of our somewhat out of the way bar goings: 1. Herbs & Rye - Our favorite bar of this trip was Herbs and Rye. I had originally thought this would be a dive bar to report based upon the exterior. It was anything but a dive. Inside the place has a very upscale feel with a somewhat turn of the century dark wood look. This is a mixology bar with a menu that provides a story behind some of their drinks. I had a Hemingway daiquiri and it was very good. We did not have anything to eat but it appeared the time to go if you intend to dine is during happy hour, steaks are 1/2 off. Otherwise it looked kind of pricey. 2. Atomic Liquor - Local business owners have taken Atomic over and breathed new life into the old crack hangout. When you walk to the front door a siren goes off, this is to alert the bartender who can choose to buzz you in, or not. Atomic is just East of the old Western and it is still a sketchy area. The bar is very nice and you can see they have invested some money in bringing the place back to life. During remodel they found a floor safe containing some odd items. The new owners kept the safe and put glass on top along with lighting. Make sure you find it toward the back of the bar, opposite side of the restrooms (Northeast side). I like this place for several reasons; The bartender, Rose was very nice to us 50-somethings. It had a funky/eclectic afternoon crowd but it gets younger later in the evening. They have a nice selection of local beers. 3. Crown and Anchor near UNLV - We had a Restaurant.com cert for this place but it was not needed. I was playing video poker and they comped our appetizers as well as beer, hideous pay schedules. It was a fun place to go but I would not make a special trip out of the way. Sausage roll was very good but I was a bit surprised they did not have more beers on tap. 4. Bar 702 (the old Sand Dollar) - Decided to try 702 only because of the recent Bar Rescue episode. This place will soon fall into dive bar status as they have already stopped the partnership with the restaurant next door, no food and the bar is already starting to show wear/tear from the remodel. Nice bartender, friendly bar patrons. 5. Park on Fremont - We stopped in and it was a fun, one beer lets leave place. Check out the naughty animal artwork and taxidermy. Beer selection was also good, served from Mason jars. Not a place I would go out of my way in order to return. Especially with The Griffin right across the street. 6. Foundation Room, House of Blues - I was completely underwhelmed by this place. Everyone raves about the view, yes it is nice but no better than a view from many of the Mandalay Bay rooms or other high floor strip properties. It appears Insert Coins might be closed, anyone know?
