The stretch of real estate between the new T-Mobile Arena and Las Vegas Boulevard is intended to coax pedestrians to pause from traipsing up and down the Strip. And there’s no better way to keep tourists in one spot than giving them somewhere to drink, preferably outdoors and with games. Billing itself as a “modern American beer hall” Beerhaus is where you might fondly relive your college days, complete with live cover bands, foosball, ping pong, corn hole and shuffleboard. At two beers averaging around $22, these are definitely not college bar prices, but beer aficionados will welcome a selection that includes Delirium Tremens, crafty IPAs and local brews. The patio seating allows guests to soak up the sun while people watching. Large garage doors open between the main dining room and the elements, in the event you’d rather soak up the air conditioning while still eyeing the crowds. One more detail isn’t exactly obvious: servers only serve drinks, so if you want some of their fun, and casual, but well-executed bar bites like pretzels with cheese, cheese-filled brats, etc—it’s served fast casual style. Order from the bar and they’ll give you a buzzer to pick up your snacks when it’s ready. It’s open Sunday through Thursday from 11am until 1am and Friday and Saturday until 2am.
