Stratosphere Casino Opens Back Alley Bar in Vegas

The Stratosphere Casino Hotel and Tower in Las Vegas has launched the Back Alley Bar, a new casual party bar that features live music every Thursday through Sunday, daily drinks specials, the Back Alley Babes dancing beverage servers and more.

"The Back Alley Bar pays homage to that one great bar experience while providing guests with the great value for which the Stratosphere has become known," said Arthur Keith, president and general manager of the Stratosphere Casino Hotel and Tower.

The look of the Back Alley Bar can be best described as gritty chic with black paint and chrome and metal accents throughout along with welded beer kegs adorning the entrance. It features specialty cocktails and teas along with beer in the bottle and on draft. The Bar also has its version of bottle service with an all day, every day special of a bottle of Jack Daniels and a pitcher of Budweiser for $99. For food, the Bar features "The Best Street Tacos This Side of Mexico," bacon wrapped beef dogs with grilled jalapenos and onions, and seafood ceviche with scallops and rock shrimp tossed in a cilantro citrus dressing with avocado, tomatoes, and cucumber.

The Back Alley Bar is open Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 a.m. and open 24 hours a day on Friday and Saturday. It is located in the north casino area of the Stratosphere, which is located at 2000 Las Vegas Boulevard South. Call 800-99-TOWER (998-6937) or visit www.stratospherehotel.com.
