If you're walking into New York New York from MGM or Excalibur via skywalk, you should have no trouble finding this place. Pour 24 sits next to the escalator which send you down to the casino floor. It sits "in the action" of the shops, and is a good place to peoplewatch if that's your thing, or check out the flashing lights of the casino below. Most of the seating in a rectangle around the bar, with a few seats off to the side.
24 beers on-tap, but unlike the name, 21 were pouring. Some macros are there, but at least there's some happiness found for the beer geek. There's Stone Ruination, DFH 60 Minute, Fat Tire, Moose Drool, Sin City Amber, and Leinenkugel's. There are bottles available too, but it's all mass produced stuff. The staff knew a few things about the beer they were serving, which honesty I wasn't expecting. Several types of glassware are offered with each beer they pour; I had my 60 Minute poured into a pokal.
One thing worth noting is that Pour 24 can be expensive. Even the BMC's on-tap were around $6.50 a pour. The craft stuff is priced at $7.25, which helped encourage a short stay by me.

The wife and I actually walked by this place before looking back over my shoulder to see the Pour 24 sign. It is in a horrible location next to the escalator across from the Houdini Magic Shop and the casino entrance. Picture a crowded shopping mall around the holiday season with loads of people and screaming kids. Then hear the Houdini shop magician yelling to the crowd in front of the store selling some magic items. This is basically a bar kiosk in the middle of a mall. No walls, no TVs, no food.
The beer selection for Vegas is good, but the list is not overly remarkable. Some Rogues, Alaskan ESB and Amber, three New Belgium beers, Big Sky IPA and Moose Drool, Firestone Pale and Double Barrel, Sin City Amber, Stone Arrogant Bastard, Blue Moon. Sierra Anniversary along with some Breckinridge Vanilla Porter and Oatmeal Stout rounded it out. There are also a good number of bottles including the basic macros. The beers we had were fresh.
Prices are a bit steep as pint range from $6 - $ 6.50, and four 6 oz samples will cost you $14. There were also increased prices for five and six samples reaching up to $19. A bottle of Alaskan Smoked Porter was listed at $9.50.
The bar top has a cold blueish color and macro bottles are stored in ice filled containers on the bar, while the micro bottles are stored in the refridgerators. The tap lineup is hard to read since the taps are sideways from the bar front, and blocked on the other side. But they do have a nice printed menu. There is a row of stools overlooking the first floor casino if you want to people watch.
I do not see this place lasting long before changing its lineup. Out of the 20 or so people who stepped up to order drinks, only the wife and I along with one other customer ordered from the micros. Most were Corona or Bud bottles or sodas. It is nice to see a bar with a better beer selection in Vegas, but the atmosphere and prices makes you want to leave quickly. If you are stuck on the strip this may do, but I still suggest getting off the strip to Big Dog's or Chicago for beers and Rosemary's for great food and beer pairings.

After lunch at Burger Bar in Mandalay, we walked through NYNY and stopped at Pour 24. It's a smallish sized bar overlooking the casino floor. Nothing special. Service lacked a bit, as the bartender continued to clean while we just stood there (bar was empty) and I know he saw us. One thing to note: make sure to sit down, that way you get a glass. If you are standing, he thought the beers were to go so he put them in plastic cups. Yuck. Selection was pretty solid though. I ordered a Firestone Double Barrel Ale, and my wife had the Big Sky Moose Drool Brown Ale. Pints seemed to all be $7. As we drank, I played video poker and won $7. Paid for my beer. Not bad.

I was staying at the Luxor for a conference at Madalay Bay and made a couple of stops at Pour 24 and The Burger Bar. I give a slight edge to Pour 24 because of the quality of their North American craft taps and people watching at a high-traffic site.
Beers were $7 for about 20 oz and here's what they had on tap...
Alaskan Amber and ESB
Big Sky IPA and Moose Drool
Firestone Walker Double Barrell and Pale Ale
Kona Wailua Wheat
Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat
Sierra Nevada Seasonal
Sin City Amber
Desechutes Black Butte Porter
New Belgium 1554, Fat Tire, and Mothership Wit
Rogue Bruttal Bitter, Dead Guy, Shakespeare
Stone Ruinition and Arrogant Bastard
I had different servers each visit and they all seemed fairly knowledgeable and friendly. One told me the most popular beers were Shakespeare and Ruinition. Another said the taps are constant except for the rotating seasonals. He did say they could no longer get Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout and were working to get it back on tap. It's right next door to the crime to humanity - Coyote Ugly. It's a great people watching spot and it beats the days of Sam Adams being the best beer available in Vegas. I'm very happy to see such a nice NA craft selection.

Bright open style bar overlooking the casino slots and tables on the floor below. Pour 24 is open, wait for it, 24 hours and has how many pours? Correct, 24!
We sat and people watched as the bar is located on the walkthrough type corridor to the strip and has some interesting places within eye shot. Houdini's magic shop didn't produce much fun for us, but the photo stall next door had us enthralled as tourists (like you and me in LV) had head shots taken and then given supermodel bodies or Elvis, Chipperfield, etc, etc. Strangely no one thin wanted a fat body added to their photo, but loads of large ladies wanted slimmer torso's in skimpy swimwear for their holiday snap. Even stranger was the crushed ice booth that gave huge containers (different shapes) of coloured ice with added alcohol to crowds of people passing through, or replenshing there empty vessels. Hoards of poeple seemed to be carrying these things about, strapped to their shoulders.
Anyway, back to the bar, $7.50 a pint (May 2010), I had three, the wife two: Stone Ruination, DogFishHead 60 Minute, Stone AB, for me, Sin City Amber and Anchor Steam for the good lady. Staff fine, restocking the bottles when we were sat with them, so not a lot of chatting between us, but they didn't let us go thirsty, or anyone else for that matter.
This is another of these weird LV bars that I'd have walked right past if it wasn't for BA and my pre-reading before our visit, glad I found it (not that it's hard to find).

This place is not very easy to find or at least I didnt think it was. You enter NYNY and I asked about 5 or 6 employees if they knew where Pour 24 was and most of them acted like they had never heard of it. Thanks to some of the other beerfly reviews, I remember mention of it being at the top of escalators and thats the way to find it. There is one set that goes to the roller coaster ride and the other set goes to the little upstairs shops where Pour 24 overlooks the casino floor.
Nice decor and look to this place. Light earthy woods mixed with steel. The chairs werent real comfortable but it was a great place for people watching etc. They also have nice big TVs with the game on.
Beer selection was very well thought out and had a couple I had never tried before-Big Sky brewing's Moose Drool and Firestone Walker pale ale. Both beers were real fresh and delicious. The Firestone was absolutely fantastic.
Service was average at best where I basically had to say "excuse me" to get the guy's attention for another beer as he and the other bartender were busy discussing the Masters golf tournament.:)
On to the price part--absolutely outrageous at $7 a pint. I mean thats more expensive than most places in Manhattan. I guess they're trying to live up to their namesake casino theme. Anyway--its a real shame they are charging this much as it is just not reasonable to spend any length of time here.
I would go back again for a couple though simply because these beers are not available in my area.

Certainly not what I expect from a beer bar, but then again isn't this thea case with everything in this town? Even knowing what to look for, I nearly missed the place after reaching the top of the escallators. It just blends in with all of the other lights and visuals in New York, New York Casino.
I didn't mind the open-corner, exposed location that overlooks the casino floor. Nor did I mind the passer-bys, as this is Las Vegas.
The selection didn't exactly knock my socks off, but do have a nice array of Belgians, Micros, and Imports -- I'd guess about 50 different beers in all (including a few bud / corrona types). I had an Alaskan ESB, Black Beute Porter, and a Firestone Walker Double Barrel Ale. These were the only two brewery offerings that we cannot get back in Kentucky.
The staff was standard -- they knew their beers but didn't really entice you with their enthusiasm or interest.
No foods were offered, but a cup of chex-mix was always available. Although the bar would have fallen a bit short of good reviews anywhere else, the is about as good as it gets on the strip.

I go to this place every time I go to las vegas. It's in kind of an interesting location, at the top of the New York, New York casino looking over the casino and across the street the MGM Grand.
Selection is 24 taps with a good mix of mid west and west coast selections (Firestone Walker, Big Sky, New Belgium, Anderson Valley). I think the first couple times I was there were better but it's not only good but worth making a special trip to.
No food there. Bartenders are ok. Same guys for years.

Visited on 5/11/08, around lunchtime.
This is basically a small bar area that overlooks the casino floor of the New York New York casino.
The countertops are made of cool blue geode slices under clear lucite. The "draft island" is a central station with a good number of taps, almost all of which are craft beers. It's covered in a thin sheen of frost, which is impressive to look at but... it does bad things to the beer.
I ordered a Moose Drool and it was so cold it made my fingers numb to hold the glass. As all we craft beer nuts know, ice cold beer = flavor-challenged beer. It took about 20 minutes for the brew to warm up to "cold".
Pints, as noted by others, are $7.00. This is more than the highest end places in L.A. or N.Y.!
I did see a woman get several small samples of different beers, searching for one she liked with the bartender's help. Her husband sat mutely next to her with a bottle of Bud Light. Incidentally, the frozen daquiri stand right next to this bar had a line that never got shorter while about 5 of us sat at Pour 24.
Other than the really eye-pleasing decor, I can't recommend this place that freezes its brews into beersicles and then charges seven bucks for them.
