Is This the Best Happy Hour in Las Vegas?

When you think “value in Las Vegas,” Imperial Palace leaps to mind like a gazelle being chased by a lion. Or something.

The Imperial Palace has upped the value game once again, at its Sports Bar (near the hotel’s Sports Book), with a Happy Hour we think might just be the best in Vegas.

First, the Sports Bar offers a Happy Hour that’s not just an hour. It lasts from 2:00 p.m. to midnight. This blog is not a mathematician, but that sounds like approximately 10 hours of happy.

The news gets even better when you discover the Happy Hour offers cocktails featuring a variety of premium liquors for just $2.50 a pop. That’s $2.50 cocktails, center-Strip, for 10 hours.

At least one of the $2.50 cocktails we were forced to try on your behalf looked exactly like the one below.

Note: Your actual $2.50 drink may not be as pleasingly back lit as the one photographed by this blog. We are a professional marketer.

The hooch featured in this Happy Hour includes Skyy Vodka, Cruzan White Rum, Sauza Blanco Tequila, Seagram’s Gin, Seagram’s 7 Crown Blended Whiskey and Jim Beam.

Bonus: The Sports Bar bartender, Kaliq, is friendly, charming and an undeniable expert in the realm of deeply-discounted imbibement facilitation.

Fact: People featured in the Pulse of Vegas blog get more action. You're welcome, Kaliq.

Oh, and don’t forget. If you tip Kaliq $1 for a $2.50 drink, you’re giving him a 40% tip. You’re a Vegas high roller, baby.

Thanks to our friends at the Five Hundy podcast (via one of their vigilant callers, Mike from Philadelphia) for letting us know about this great Happy Hour. Find the wildly mandatory Five Hundy podcast here.

If you can find a better Happy Hour in Sin City, we’d love to hear about it. We won’t be holding our breath.

  1. Those choices of liquor aren’t exactly premium, but it is still one hell of a deal. Kudos to Ceasars Entertainment for trying retro-style marketing: Using cheap food or booze to get people in the door and gambling. What a concept!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. This blog wouldn’t know a premium liquor if it tripped into a vat of one, so we appreciate your expertise. We are, however, cheap booze fans, so this deal’s a winner.

  3. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Anyhow, just wanted to say superb blog!
