    Downtown Grand was quite fast. Las Vegas club was the slowest IMHO.

    I don't order at bars when I can get served at the slot machines.

    Fastest Boar's Head at MSS, but I am a regular.
    #2 Chicago Brewing upstairs at 4Q. Actually, the two bars downstairs are pretty quick, also.
    Plaza if you are at the bar next to the bandstand.

    DTG I've had fast service and I've had horrible service. Depends on the bartender.

    Slowest imo is Golden Gate inside.

    Considering they've been closed for about a year and a half, I'm surprised you got a drink and a little concerned who eventually sold it to you...

    I had a drink at the Las Vegas Club yesterday but I don't think the unshaven waiter knew what he was doing because it tasted like piss water. What a waste of a $2 tip. :evillaugh:

    I have never really had any issues with getting drinks while playing except for maybe the El Cortez. Seems like the only place I am looking for a waitress/drink is the El Cortez...

    El Cortez casino bar and lobby bar were fast. Don't remember his name but a bartender at the lobby bar was nice and introduced me to a Vodka Collins which is one of my go-to's now. Boar's Head at MSS was slow for me and the brass rail around the bar leaves a funky smell on your hands. I liked the beer though.

    El Cortez casino bar is usually good service never had a problem there. The D long bar can be hit and miss depending where you are sitting. If your down the end near the entrance then you gat served quick. If your up the other end of the bar then sometimes you can wait a while. I have seen 4 staff behind the bar but they seem to stood at one end. The other thing that gets me is the juggling bit, yeah do it if its quiet but not when you have a lot of people are waiting to be served. I know they are getting told to do that crap but just serve the drink for gods sake. I was in there last year and the guy acknowledged me twice and I still waited for about 10 mins. To be fair to the guy though when he did serve me he apologised and gave me a free drink. Golden Gate is usually good although in the week they only have 2 staff on so when one goes for a break there's only one bar staff on for a while. Not their fault so just have to be a bit patient.

    Slowest: slot drink service at El Cortez -- but bar service at any bar is immediate
    Fastest: Downtown Grand
