    I've been to Alibi a bunch of times, not a big fan. Are you familiar with the space? It's definitely not a nightclub or comparable to Gold; it's completely open to the casino, and really is just a somewhat-nicer version of the central bar that every casino has. I think they may have a DJ at night, but there's also live music at Lift Bar and the usual casino soundtrack.

    It's the old City Bar, and is indeed nothing like Gold. It's still 24/7 and has video poker at the bar, and they basically turned it over to Light Group, knocked down the walls, expanded a little, redesigned it to have more couches, tables, etc, and added an emphasis on mixology with the drink menu.

    Alibi is definitely not a club. It is a good place to get a fantastic old fashioned though. They have a great rye and bourbon list. Bartenders are hot and know how to make a good cocktail. I like their dj better than whatever crap is playing at Lift bar.

    stopped in a few times when it was Gold's, it was alright, we never stayed very long though.
    they were giving out 2-for-1 drink coupons outside, so we stopped in for a few drinks- a guy in a massive cowboy hat sat down beside me and starting smoking a huge cigar and randomly yelling 'YEEEHAWWWW!!!!!' or something like that.
    it was weird.

    Alibi was never Gold--Gold was up the escalators. Alibi is on the casino floor....
