This week I made a trip down to The Park located between New York-New York and Monte Carlo. I wanted to check out the happenings there and try out one of the restaurants.
The Park is conveniently located right off Las Vegas Blvd., in front of the new T-Mobile Arena. This should make for a very busy area on nights when there is an event at the arena.
I decided to pop into the Beerhaus, a cool bar to hang out at as it’s got a little bit of everything. It seems more like a neighborhood bar or what you might find by a college campus as it’s designed to have you hang out for a while.
There are bar games for you to play with your friends so you hang out stay, play and of course drink. They have a ping-pong table, foosball, mini-shuffleboard and even corn-hole outside in the patio area. At your table are Connect 4 and Jenga.
As the name suggests the Beerhaus is all about the beer as they have a nice selection on tap and even announce the dates of takeovers for new brews. Happy Hour starts a little earlier than most as it runs from 2 to 6 p.m. when they offer select $4 Brews and Bites. You don’t find a lot of good Happy Hours right on the Strip so you have to give them credit.
I popped in for a late lunch, which happened to also be Happy Hour. I tried their Warm Pretzel and Beer Cheese for $4. The pretzels were good and having the side of beer cheese to dip in made them even better. At $4 during Happy Hour the pretzel is a no brainer.
For my lunch I was between getting the Beerhaus Brat or the Pulled Beef Brisket Sandwich. I decided on the brat, which was an IPA cheddarwurst served with smoked bacon and onion jam. All of their sausage sandwiches are served on Parker House rolls.
I guess since I was watching an afternoon baseball game on one of the many TV’s I decided on the brat, which was good. Later I talked to a buddy who had been there the week before and he said he had the pulled beef brisket sandwich and it was very good, so I’ll be back to give it a try.
The concept is very casual. They have a wait staff but you go up to the counter to order your food and they give you a beeper to let you know when to come back to pick up.
This will be a great spot to stop before or after going to an event at T-Mobile arena. If you want to grab a bite after a show they offer $4 snacks from 10 p.m. to close nightly. Again, having specials on the Strip is a pleasant change and will entice locals to go to there more often.
The Beerhaus is worth stopping by when you’re at The Park whether heading to a show or just hanging out. I give it a rating of 3.50 Forks.
