Troy Liquor Bar Opens at Golden Nugget

A new nightlife offering has opened at downtown’s Golden Nugget casino, Troy Liquor Bar.

The new nightclub and bar replaces Gold Diggers on the resort’s second floor.

Liquor bars are our very favorite kind. Of bar. Please try and keep up.

The new bar concept at Golden Nugget isn’t entirely new. There’s another Troy Liquor Bar in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. No, that is not a euphemism. Get your mind out of the gutter for a change.

We are not personally a nightclub person, but we are a liquor person, so we enjoyed Troy Liquor Bar’s selection of signature cocktails.

Drinks at Troy Liquor Bar are served in plastic cups because the outdoor patio overlooks the street. Translation: People be clumsy.

Most are $13, which is our least favorite price, but only because we like to gamble and we’re occasionally superstitious.

The White Gummy Bear is an epic panty-dropper cocktail that will change your life.

While downtown may be known for its nightlife, it’s not exactly known for being a hotbed for nightclubs, so it remains to be seen if Troy Liquor Bar will catch on.

At the moment, it’s the only nightclub on Fremont Street Experience (where we work in digital marketing as our day job).

There’s no denying one of Troy Liquor Bar’s best assets is its view of Fremont Street Experience. The balcony at Troy Liquor Bar offers a bird’s-eye view of the circus that is Fremont Street. It also provides a sweet view of the Viva Vision canopy.

A little bit of throwback, mixed with a little bit of throwforward, if that’s an actual thing.

Beyond the memorable cocktails, we found the music volume and selection to be perfect, big wins in our book.

Troy Liquor Bar also boasts several blackjack tables, so we’re in.

Fun fact: Las Vegas nightclubs make about 70% of their revenue from bottle service. Then again, most don’t have blackjack tables.

We’re often asked where one can go dancing downtown, and Troy Liquor Bar certainly qualifies.

The place is a fraction of the cost of clubs on The Strip, and the vibe is unpretentious.

If you’re dining before your dancing, our best tip is to try Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse. The prix fixe menu (it’s not on the in-house menu, you have to download and print a .pdf) is one of our favorite dining deals in town.

Enjoy a few more photos of Troy Liquor Bar and let us know what you think if you give it a try.

    Can’t read the felt, is this thing you call Blackjack actually Blackjack, or is it some similar game that pays 6:5 on a 21?

      Soon the sheeple will be paying a $1 ante or more for the privilege of playing each hand in anticipation of that glorious 6:5 payout for 21. Several Indian casinos already have it (most pay out 3:2 though) and thrive.

      Some folks accused me of being a few chips short of a full stack when I predicted the paid parking on the Strip several years ago. It may take a while but the paid ante for all card table bets is coming.

        Little Bo-Peeple has lost her sheeple, and doesn’t know where to find them (as she persists in her search for them at the 3:2 blackjack tables).

        Sad stories like that one always make me weeple.

          There is no shortage of weeping sheeple in the City of Lost Wages. Traffic is busy and the airport is bursting with the happy arriving and sad departing flocks.

        Didn’t the G.N. have that 300 different beer bar?
        I remember ordering an Amstel, thinking it would be a ”light” and they gave an Amstel Lager. I never knew any other Amstel but the light style.
        Only 2 bucks too!
