Every time a new place opens you hear the same things. This place is different, we have the best collection of beers, unique food menu and other hype that never really lives up to the hype. Well, Pub 365 did.
Located inside the Tuscany Suites & Casino, Pub 365 is named for the rotating 365 different beer offerings. I have been in Las Vegas for 8 years now and been to Tuscany just twice. That’s about to change.
I’m not a beer drinker but the friend I had lunch with is a beer connoisseur. He was very impressed with the beer menu and it blows away most other places’ beer lists by a landslide.
The menu comes out in its own wooden binder, guarded almost like an NFL team playbook. Inside this binder, as they titled it, was Majestic, Rare and Hunted. Those three words say it all as these were majestic rare hunted beers. They were beers most people can’t get.
These kegs are rare, much like vintage fine wine. The manager, Howard, stopped by our table and was telling us all about these rare beers. Listening to him describe each beer was much the same as listening to young parents talking about their kids. Pub 365 has the best selection of beer in the city hands down.
Of course, I can’t go to a bar that has TV’s for me to watch games and not try the wings. We started with an order of Buffalo wings as an appetizer. They were very good with just the right amount of sauce that was very flavorful. I will have these again for sure.
I decided to go with their signature “I’m not a Burger,” which is crispy chicken with prosciutto, Mozzarella, wild arugula, tomato and Parmesan. This sandwich was great and very filling. I ordered the Pub Chips as my side and they were excellent. They fry the potato chips in-house and serve them hot. The chips are dusted with a seasoning mix that has a hint of barbeque flavor to it.
I ordered one of their homemade shakes and went with the Peanut Butter one made with Chocolate Ice Cream. If you want to kick these shakes up a notch you can add a shot specially paired to that shake for $3. They offer four flavors with four different alcohol pairings.
Next was dessert and the waiter said his favorite was Churro Waffle served hot with ice cream, rum and caramel sauce. He nailed it with his recommendation – that dessert was so good.
They have a couple other desserts that are intriguing, notably their Donut Burger. They take a glazed donut, slice it like a hamburger bun and put a round slice of chocolate ice cream to resemble a hamburger patty and have some strawberry jam for the look of ketchup and a little whipped cream for the mayo and there you go – a Donut Burger.
For those of you who like to play video poker and have a few drinks they have plenty of machines all along the bar. There are some interesting taco choices I want to try. They have four different ones including Baja Fish, Slow Roasted Chicken, Korean Short Rib and a Steak and Egg Taco. All of the orders come with three tacos for $9.
The portions are huge, the food is good and the service was outstanding. I give the Pub 365 a rating of 3.75 Forks.
