    It was the slots with my wife who likes to play there. It is generally in the afternoon. I think they get drinks right there instead of running back to the service bar.

    It's been a bit since this happened.

    I was playing UTH at The Cromwell earlier this month and the crowd was starting to pile into LV for MM. I was in a mood to get my drink on, so I asked the waitress if she could just order my next drink when she brought me the last one I ordered. That and a decent tip ensured I was never waiting on a beverage.

    We play in Paris and service at the tables have always been quick. My friends play oak gas and the waitress would come by every 5-10 min asking if we'd like another drink

    Probably the best service I've had is at Cromwell.

    Really though, I think the trick is to set up camp by the bar where the servers are getting their drinks from.
     
    SEMA, we'll see if we make it to the actual show this time...

    The best, Cosmo. Servers come around before we've even finished our drink. PHo was very fast too. A new worst :( Palms; a big change under Stations. The floor is seriously understaffed with servers.....rarely saw one. In 3 days/nights, we were only approached by a server on the floor 4 times total! Service at the sportsbar still excellent. Not loving Stations changes at Palms :(. Hope it is just growing pains.

    Maybe. But maybe not. Stations caters to locals and they need to drive home safely! [emoji6] I don't recall seeing many cocktail servers at other Stations properties when I've visited, but last trip I pretty much went straight to the bar at GVR and Red Rock. [emoji5]

    Bartenders told us they only had two servers on the floor, wow! The good news, for non-locals points are still good for a year; only 6 months for locals.

    Cromwell is the best ( the waitresses are around every 5 minutes, it seems). Cosmo is a close second (at least for table games).

    Worst: Easily the Mirage. I have seen 3 waitresses chatting while waiting at least 30 minutes for a drink. Venetian is a close second; I don't think Sheldon Adelson likes giving free drinks to gamblers, cuz he basically hates gamblers.

    Cromwell for sure! I've had maybe one or two stretches there where I thought it wasn't 'on par' with previous visits... but overall I'd say it is the best for drinks.

    Caesars and Flamingo can be very hit or miss (usually miss).

    Iv'e had really good service at the Cromwell and the Cosmo. Recently went to the cromwell and the waitress actually remembered me and my order from last month. Only ordered 3 drinks. I was astounded. The not so good places PH, plaza, & the Rio. Hit and miss, Bellagio, Wynn.

    I agree with what several have said... The Cosmo, and Cromwell. I've found Bellagio to be the slowest at the slots.

    When Cromwell is on they are great.

    As others have said, they are hit and miss.

    THE D seems to be totally different by area. Long bar and tables always fast, slots I could stay empty a long time at all times of the day.

    Rio sports book during CFB and NFL has been excellent. Bailys has been good the couple times we stopped in there too.

    I have always had great drink mojo at NYNY (slots area) and at the tables at Excalibur. Never had to wait more than 5 minutes to be approached for a drink and it was usually returned within 3-5 minutes. Have walked away thirsty at Flamingo, Bellagio, and CP several times. Of course, with our timezone differences, we are usually on the floor pretty early. (Can never seem to adjust quick enough, I guess that means that we just need to go more often, right?)
