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
Widmer Hefe
Anchor Seasonal
Blue Moon
Pyramid Hefe
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).

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.

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.

Spotted some Stone tap handles and such while walking through NYNY en route to Mandalay Bay, and decided to stop on the return trip.

Atmosphere gets a brutally honest low mark from me - its just a bland walk-up bar, I can't sugar coat it. There are probably a dozen or so craft taps, but once you get past Sam and Fat Tire, you really don't get much. I first went with a $7 pint of Alaskan Amber - ouch! It is Vegas, after all. The beer was in good condition though, as I figure the limited selection of good craft beers in Vegas helps places like this turn over their kegs. Judging by other reviews, the beer selection itself probably doesn't change much outside of a seasonal or two.

The service was attentive, but nothing over the top. No real personable bar tenders, but they didn't let us go empty. A walker cup of Ruination (god bless Vegas), and I was content with my stop at Pour 24. Recommended as an oasis in a beer desert.

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.

Pour 24 is just inside New York, New York in an area of shops, right next to Coyote Ugly. This is not much more than a small bar area, but you can sit and overlook the casino floor. A few tv's to watch sports as well. The taps are situated in what looks like a big block of ice. This is really a prime people watching spot, and a nice place to take a break and have a drink or 3.

All the beers were served in Pilsner glasses, although I did see some snifters around as well. The only knock I would have is that the beers, and glasses, were a bit cold. The servers were friendly, and had a bit of knowledge.

Among the taps were Alaskan Amber, Stone Ruination & Arrogant Bastard, Big Sky IPA & Moose Drool, Firestone Double Barrel & Pale, and Anchor Old Foghorn.

No food, so just grab a drink. To me, the best part was that it was in a good area to cut through walking to MGM or Excalibur. Stop for a beer, or as is the beauty of Vegas, get on to go walk around with. Beers were $7 a piece, but that seems to be about average out there. Good stop.

Pour 24 sits adjacent to the escalators to NYNY's casino floor. It's an open-air bar in an indoor setting. The bar-top is an acrylic blue and green surface that is backlit, making it almost glow.

The bartender was efficient, but it almost felt like you were being served a cola in the food court. The plastic cups added to that feeling, too. The upside to the plastic: take it to go, it's Vegas.

Selection was solid. I wouldn't expect to find any rarities, but there were a good number of accessible craft beers. It's nice for me to drink an Alaskan Amber or some other west coast ale that doesn't make it to Ohio.

Pour 24 is good place to take a break with a nice ale and watch the tourist pass by.

A craft beer oasis in a desert of casinos.

There is little to complaint about for a decent place that offers good draft beer in the middle of the strip. Located in one of the indoor public passage areas of the "New York, New York" hotel and casino, the intent to offer 24 brews on tap is quite commendable.

Given the setting, the perception of the place typically hinges on the service. Of the two servers at the time of our visit one seemed decent if somewhat uninterested, while the one that took care of us during most of the session was knowleadeble, collaborative, and rather pleasing. He quickly spotted our interest in craft beers, and was very accomodating with small tastes of the brews, and suggested good brews according to the different profile of the customer, quite the professional actually.

The atmosphere is Vegas casino crowd so that is that, with very few of the patrons actually ordering craft brews, settling instead for cocktails, frozen drinks, or macros, of which they also held a good quantity to cover the demand. In that context we felt that those interested in the taps were very well taken care of. All brews were served in a generic, maybe not ideal but fairly appropriate, glassware in the form of tall conic shaped glasses, with good pouring protocol.

Sure enough the selection while good might not be mind blowing, but even though a couple of the kegs were done for the day, the offer was pretty decent, and it is a good stop for craft aficionados who can not scape the strip.

At the time:

Abita Purple Haze
Alaskan Amber
Adam's Apple Ale
Big Sky IPA
Big Sky Moose Drool
Newcastle Brown Ale
Firestone Pale Ale
Wailua Wheat
Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat
Primo Island Lager
Sin City Amber
Haywire Hefeweizen
Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA
Blue Moon Seasonal
Pyramid Hefeweizen
Deschutes Black Butte Porter
New Belgium 1554
New Belgium Fat Tire
New Belgium Mothership Wit
Sam Adams Seasonal
Rogue Dead Guy Ale
Rogue Shakespeare Stout
Stone Ruination
Stone Arrogant Bastard

There were also some perfunctory macro bottles and a cider on tap. Ah, and if anybody is into buying their souvenir plastic glass-bottle they sure can refill it with any selection to go. Likewise, while during our time they did not serve any food, patrons are very welcome to bring their own from any of the stablishments in that area of the casino. So there is no excuse not to have a bite if one need to do so with the beer.

I stopped at Pour 24 in the New York, New York Hotel on a mini-pub crawl on the Las Vegas Strip.

The place is a wide spot on the concourse and reminded me a little of an airport. There a lot of peripheral activities going on, like shops, eateries, people walking by and of course gaming. Seating for about 40. It does oerlook the casino floor which is cool.

Quality is just average. Kind of all over the board. Mostly regional micros. Widmer, Pyranid, Blue Moon. A real Northwest bent as opposed to California or the east coast.

Service was good. but the place was not busy.

Selection included 24 taps. There were a lot of average micros. No BMC.

Food: NA. Plenty of food places nearby. Like a mall food court.

Value is pricey. $7 for a Deadlift IPA. First I ever had on tap however.

With Pour 24 of NYNY, I believe context is the most important thing to keep in mind. Context, and trade offs.

For example, its a pretty cool looking bar, but it isn't so much a bar as an bar-like kiosk pushing high quality beer on your way to other things, but its very good for people watching if you do sit down. I'd find it expensive but for the worse, more expensive beers I've paid for elsewhere in this boozing mecca. They serve you beer in plastic cups (!!!), but that just means you get to enjoy your beer whilst walking about, taking in the Vegas strip.

The service is prompt, if standoffish, even with huge crowds I haven't had to wait too long for a beer. The selection is on the high side for Vegas, having seen offerings from Stone, Kona, Deschuttes, NB, Rogue, Firestone, Alaskan, among others.

When I was there with the bros, we put in a rule: get within a stones through of Pour 24, and we had to stop to get a beer. Staying at Mandalay, and being on the shortcut trail through NYNY up and down the trip, the rule was exercised frequently:)

located above the casino in an open area, this is pretty much an oval open bar that surrounds a couple dozen taps. touristy shops surround you with the casino below. don't come here to escape the things about the strip that make you sick after a couple days. but is is an oasis almost with a good (for vegas) selection of beers on tap, mostly american craft beers. not much more to choose from via bottle. prices are reasonable when you consider where you are and that you could walk a few feet and pay the same or more for bmc at a club or restaurant. a good place to stop by if you're nearby nyny and need a good beer fix.

I would not have expected to find this place right out in the open. It was a little strange walking up to the bar and sitting down because everyone was walking up and getting their macro fix and walking away. I took the time to sit down and gaze at the...24...taps.

The bartender noticed I was staring at the taps and she gave me a beer list....wonderful! A great selection of taps...since I'm from the east coast...the bottle selection wasn't anything special. I was able to enjoy a flight...which you can make your own...and I had Firestone Pale Ale, Deschuttes Black Butte, New Belgium Fat Tire, Rogue Shakespeare Stout, and Stone Arrogant Bastard.

Although this place is out in the open...it's still a great place to enjoy a beer. You can sit back with a beer and people watch as Coyote Ugly is right down the hall.

This was my home base for much of my 2-day stay in Vegas. I won $500 on the penny slots with a $10 bill. Obviously it was a positive first experience with gambling. I've never had the desire to do it, but I was in Vegas so I thought I'd at least spend $10 and it sure as hell paid off. Anyway... so my big hit came at NYNY, so after I cashed out and offered to buy everybody around me a drink, we headed up the escalators to the Pour 24, which is not only one of the best beer places between NYNY and Mandalay Bay, where I was staying, but it was the only one I know of that was open 24 hours. What a disappointment the nightlife in Vegas turned out to be for me, but this place was decent enough.

This place has 24 different beers and is open 24 hours a day. You do the math. I mostly drank Stone Ruination, Arrogant Bastard, and Firestone Pale. They had a decent mix of light to dark and sweet to bitter, but I had to get my West Coast hops fix, since this was part of my West Coast trip. Pints were $7.50, which was kind of shitty, but I didn't have many other choices after midnight. Besides, it was in the only casino that I actually ended up winning at, so I felt inclined to give some back, even if the bar isn't actually affiliated in any way to NYNY aside from being located in the building.

Vegas baby yeah! I hit Pour yesterday PM after ducking out of my conference. Vibe is weird since it basically on a concourse in NY, NY and all the gamblers/tourists are walking by. Service was good but the bar was empty so I would expect good service. Bartender chatted me up about Vegas which was cool. Good brew on tap (Stone, Sierra, Big Sky, Alaskan, New Belgium, among others) and some bottles which would be graded as very good if grading on the Vegas beer curve since it is a lousy beer town. If on the Strip, a good place to stop.

Cheers.

I stopped by this place both of the nights that i was in Vegas on my last trip there. It seems like a great little spot to grab a beer to start or finish off the night.

Its basically out in the open, setup more like a kiosk than a dedicated bar space. There is plenty of seating both times i went.

The bartender was nice, I'm not quite sure of his knowledge about the beers, mostly because i didn't need any help especially with the selections they have here. The beers are pretty standard that you can pick up at any decent liquor store in the area, but they are good ones, Deschutes Black Butte, Stone, New Belgium, Big Sky...

I'm not gonna make it a point to stop here every time i visit, but If i'm ever in the NYNY and want a good beer, i know where i'll be stopping.

It took a little bit of searching as it's fairly well hidden on the 2nd floor of New York New York right outside of Coyote Ugly and the closest exit is the walkway leading to Excalibur.

The service was average, and their gut instinct, as at most places on the strip, is to serve their beer in plastic cups, but they are perfectly willing to supply glasses if asked, though they appear to serve most items in a pilsner glass regardless of style.

The tap selection was impressive, especially for someone from the east coast (Deschutes, New Belgium, Alaskan Brewing, Firestone Walker, etc...), but nothing that I would consider extrraordinary.

Service was average to above average and the vibe was low key. The taps incased in ice is a nice touch as is the design of the bar itself. A wonderful place to unwind, enjoy a beer, and people watch.

The $7.50 per draft price is a little pricey, but then again it's Vegas, so it is partly expected.
