This week, there’s one place cowboys and cowgirls will be partying together, and that place is PBR Rock Bar in Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort. Behind the bar, slinging the drinks will be bartender Stephanie Perrien.
The Professional Bull Riders World Finals kicks off on Oct. 24 and PBR Rock Bar will be one of the hottest spots to kick up some dust during the competition. And Perrien is stoked that her venue is hosting a slew of PBR parties.

Served in a Mason jar, this popular specialty drink is sure to get you kicking up your heels in no time. It’s mixed with Pendleton whiskey, raspberry liqueur, sweet and sour mix, orange juice and simple syrup. Not in a cocktail mood? What would PBR Rock Bar be without actually serving some PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon)? You can score the storied beer in bottles, cans and on tap.
