    I will be in Vegas soon and planning on buying a bottle (pint) of vodka. As this is a solo trip and a quick trip, I am willing to pay premium for the convenience. Does anyone have any experience with the prices at the liquor library at the airport vs. hotel gift shops-specifically Paris/Bally's.

    When I was in town last month, I bought a fifth (750mL) bottle of Ciroc and it was like $45 or so. Not a terrible markup, to me worth it for the convenience.

    I've seen very limited pricing info but the little I have gathered puts prices almost right in line with the gift shops. The main benefit I assume is getting a little more variety in the store in the airport. You can also use the 10 minutes waiting for luggage to go get something. :)


    The $45 mention for ciroc is about what I've seen for prices. About 40-50% increase in price compared to my local liquor store.

    Thanks. I have been searching for price comparisons, but found very little. The point about a better selection is a good one. Knowing that the prices are probably no better/no worse than gift shops is good. I will check it out.

    Does anyone know if they have Fireball? I've been on a Fireball kick lately and I wanna get some while there.

    I haven't personally been there but I'd be pretty surprised if they didn't have Fireball, it's quite common.
