Start your drinking adventure at Miracle Mile Shops
Who’s up for a drinking adventure? Besides the impressive 1.2 miles of shopping, dining and entertainment at Miracle Mile Shops in Planet Hollywood Resort, there are plenty of experiences to get your group to Inebriation Island (ha ha!). Here are some hot spots to get you started.
Start at Blondie’s Sports Bar & Grill for the twice-daily happy hour (3-6 p.m. and 10 p.m.-1 a.m. Mon.-Fri.). It’s all-you-can-drink well drinks and drafts for just $20! The sports bar-meets-college-vibes venue also hosts a doubles beer pong tourney on Thursdays with a prize of $300—that’s a lot of dough for the penny slots!
For the next round of drinks, you don’t have to travel far—just a few feet to the recently opened Flights. At this bar and restaurant, the fun comes in threes. You can order several signature cocktail flights: daiquiri flight with mango, classic lime and strawberry flavors; martini flight with cucumber, Gibson and Dirty recipes; mojito flight with watermelon, strawberry and classic flavors; and the list goes on and on with mules, margaritas, Cosmos, beers, etc.
Now make your way to PBR Rock Bar & Grill and add your attempt to the tries by more than 90,000 people who have taken their turn on the mechanical bull. After the dizzying experience, order up fun shots and cocktails like the Scooby Snack and 100-ounce cocktail bowls like the It’s Vegas B*itch that comes with a silver tiara.
Speaking of shots, make it a point to stop at Nacho Daddy and pull out your camera to snap an Instagram pic of you and your friends doing the scorpion shot, a blend of Cenote anejo tequila, salt, lime wedge and an actual scorpion!
For more Insta-moments (there’s even an Instagram booth here), stop by Tipsy Robot, where robotic arms whip up specialty cocktails in under a minute. They twist and shake your cocktail and top it with garnish, just like real bartenders. You can use the app to design your own cocktail or choose from a long list of yummy recipes.
Back to the basics—Belgian basics: the beer with the orange slice. For those familiar with, and lovers of, Blue Moon’s famous Belgian White beer, Miracle Mile Shops has the Blue Moon Bar, dedicated solely to the brewing company. Besides exclusive draft offerings, there are also Blue Moon Belgian White beer cocktails, and there’s a great late-night happy hour. From 11 p.m.-1 a.m., enjoy buy-one-get-one specials.
And what would any Vegas drinking adventure be without the huge, plastic contraptions that hold those liver-bruising amounts of alcohol? So stop by the place that reigns in frozen specialty cocktails that come in big, bigger, biggest sizes, Fat Tuesday. Choose from many icy concoctions, but for the real deal, order the 190 Octane Daiquiri, made with 190 proof grain alcohol. You’ll forget Inebriation Island and quickly be marooned on Fantasy Island.
