One of the few Country & Western spots on the Strip, Treasure Island inherited Gilley’s from the Frontier after it closed. The mechanical bull gets a workout all night (as do those trying to test their ability to hang on for 8 seconds), while live honky-tonk bands and country rock bands perform several nights a week. Think you sound like Reba or Garth? There’s Cowboy Karaoke on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Line dancing is, of course, a must, with lessons offered Monday through Friday at 7pm. The BBQ is worth a taste, as well. The saloon opens at 11am daily, while the nightclub portion of the facility gets going around 7 or 8pm and stays open until 2am weeknights and later on weekends.
