C O V E R S T O RY WEEKLY | 07.13.17 MOST INVENTIVE LOCAL BEER Lovelady Brewing's Angry Red Headed Hawaiian The Henderson-based, family-owned craft brewery gets creative with its seasonal beers. This one offers sweet, sour and spicy fl avors by combining a Belgian red beer with a pineapple sour beer aged with jalapeños. 20 S. Water St., 702-857-8469. BEST NEW DOWNTOWN HANGOUT ReBAR Downtown denizen Derek Stonebarger had a simple idea—open a bar where every- thing inside is for sale—and so far it has been a huge success. Housed amidst Main Street's antique mecca, this vintage shop-meets-neighborhood bar is a one-stop shop for thrifty boozehounds. 1225 S. Main St., 702-349-2283. BEST NEW COCKTAIL Queen's Park Swizzle at Libertine Social It's no surprise that Tony Abou-Ganim is behind one of the best new bars on the Strip, and when he goes Caribbean with this icy-cool, sweet and fruity rum concoc- tion, it's island time in the desert. Mandalay Bay, 702-632-7558. BEST NEW COCKTAIL BAR The Dorsey The Venetian needed a boozy hub, and it got some- thing even better with the arrival of the Dorsey. The cocktails couldn't be better, and the classy, brassy vibe is cool enough to make you scrap your dinner plans. Venetian, 702-414-1945. BEST UNDER-THE-RADAR BEER SELECTION Sand Dollar Lounge The Sand Dollar is known for its live music, but also swing by for the eclectic beer list, which has recently included Urban Family's Muerte al Cereal milk stout, Evil Twin's hearty Double Barrel Jesus and the Peruvian-inspired Two Evil Pachamama Porter. 3355 Spring Mountain Road, 702-485-5401. BEST STRIP BOOZE DEAL Five-cent beers at Margaritaville The Margaritaville Casino's 5 O'clock Somewhere Bar pours nickel Miller Lites every day from 5 to 6 p.m., which isn't exactly a secret but must be experienced to fully be believed. Bottoms up, Parrotheads. Flamingo, 702-733-3311. BEST COCKTAIL LOUNGE Herbs & Rye An uncompromising locals' spot ready to educate and entertain with its vast bar repertoire. It's also just cool, which is why it's always packed. 3713 W. Sahara Ave., 702-982-8036. BEST HAPPY HOUR PT's Pub What could possibly beat half-off drinks and $5 appetizers from 5-7 p.m. and midnight to 2 a.m. at any of the many PT's locations spread all around the Valley? According to you guys, nothing. Multiple locations, BEST LOCAL BREWERY Tenaya Creek The 17-year-old brewery has long held the edge as Vegas' top brewhaus thanks to a varied, award-win- ning roster, but its new Downtown digs solidifi ed its peak position. 831 W. Bonanza Road, 702-362-7335. BEST BEER LIST Aces & Ales If its enormous bottle list doesn't wow you, the 20-to-50-long draft menu (cycled out weekly) and coolers full of large-format specialties surely will. 3740 S. Nellis Blvd., 702-436-7600; 2801 N. Tenaya Way, 702-638-2337. BEST WINE BAR Khoury's Fine Wine & Spirits What's better after a tough day at work than sashaying up to the bar at this smartly stocked south-Valley wine and beer shop, ordering a glass of red or white and sipping it while you wander about, gazing at bottles and plotting your next move? Nothing we can think of. 9915 S. Eastern Ave. #110, 702-435-9463. BEST DOWNTOWN BAR Atomic Liquors The oldest freestanding bar in Vegas maintains a special spot in the hearts of locals. From the rotating taps—lots of sours, IPAs and stouts— to the new kitchen next door, there's something for everyone here. 917 Fremont St., 702-982-3000. BEST SPORTS BAR Legasse's Stadium Calling Lagasse's a sports bar doesn't really cover it. How about: killer food and drinks in a grand sta- dium environment with the most massive screens and plenty of private spaces for special events? Palazzo, 702-607-2665. BOOZE (Steve Marcus/Staff)
