    I've seen early pictures of it on Twitter, it looks remarkably like the artist's concept minus the pretty, young people sitting and lounging everywhere.

    Doubt they'll have the same assortment of craft beers however, and that's too bad.

    It's pretty obvious that Vegas feels the craft beer wave has fully crested and they're moving full-bore into the craft cocktail movement. Can't say I blame them: about the same costs and three times the money.

    What's the difference between a "bar" and a "speakeasy"? Or "bartending" vs. "Mixology"?

    Roughly three times the price and four times longer of a wait to get your Manhattan.

    But did the early twitter pics have VP units to play? Haha

    I did try to see that but couldn't because they were all taken some distance from the bar.

    You'll be responsible for letting us know Tring!

    Me too... but I land in just over two weeks... and now I'm planning to get out there myself.

    Not that I'd ever do it... but I wanna check out the living rooms and find out what they rent for.

    Are there pictures of the private rooms yet? Wonder what those will go for at super bowl.

    They should rent them out on weekdays to show movies. If they could wheel a VP machine into one and connect the big screen to my gf's Netflix account, that could probably buy me a few extra Vegas trips per year...

    Also, behind the bar where TAG used to be still appears to look pretty much the same. So it's possible the craft beers are still there.

    Opens at 4PM Vegas time today.

    Word is 24 taps, mostly mass market, big beers in the fridge.

    The craft beer revolution is over at LINQ

    Yeah Stan warned me about that via text the other day. Bummer. But they could possibly change their minds...? Sigh.

    Beer wall is worthless. I showed up when it was already closed. But M's eagle eyes could tell the beers. Sad day. But not all was lost for me at least...
