i was looking for a good beer while in Vegas for a friend's wedding, and after reading the reviews, I figured I should give this a go. I strolled in on a slow weekend afternoon. Just two people who turned out to be regulars sitting at the bar playing video poker.
Interesting atmosphere, definite dark, somewhat dingy feel with uninteresting decor and lackluster design. Video poker in the bar. There are some nice big-screens above the bar, and the pool room off to the side looked pretty decent. But I was there for the beer. Had it been a different time, different/any crowd, it might have been a bit better.
The gal behind the bar was exactly what the reviews I'd read lead me to expect - service wasn't quite a first priority, but nothing offensive. Asked about a tap-list and got a finger pointing to the chalkboard off in the corner. After browsing, I asked for my top choice, which they didn't have any more. Second choice, same deal. Finally found something they still had that sounded good. Pour was solid, clean with appropriate glassware. Worked for me.
Chatted with a few of the locals for a bit while I enjoyed a good beer in an acceptable atmoshpere. Nothing amazing, but by Vegas standards, from what I've seen, pretty damn good. And the best tap selection I've seen in town.

Went to aces and ales on super bowl Sunday. $25 cab ride from the strip. As we walked in, a bartender stopped us and asked if we had a reservation. We said no and she informed us that all seats were reserved. Fine; she said we could stand if we wanted but warned us service would be slow. Ok; funny thing was that there were open seats at the bar the whole time we were there but we weren't allowed to sit. The waitresses were not happy that we were standing so they glared at us the whole time we were there. It was hard to get any service at the bar ; again the place was busy but not packed. Place was smokey in addition. Shame is that the beer selection was awesome but we were not going to stay there after the rudeness we experienced. We left at half time and spent our money elsewhere. Vegas prices which means expensive.
Never going back there again.

First trip to Vegas and had scoped this place out prior to landing. Aces & Ales is a good distance from the Strip. Cab was about $30 with tip, but worth it. The atmosphere is great. Our waitress was excellent. We stayed so long that one of the owners took over for her when her shift ended...or maybe we were just so damn obnoxious. Either way, both servers were great.
Tap selection was good with lots of variety. Bottle list was also quite impressive.
I have absolutely no complaints about the bar, however, trying to get a cab FROM the bar is, quite frankly, a bitch. After several (at least 4) calls and an 1.5 hour wait on a Thursday, one finally arrived. I love this bar, but damn it is like a black hole in this area of town...you may never escape.

Enjoy this place, simply put.
Try and get there once a month. They have 20 beers on tap, constantly rotating plus a wide bottle selection. I have yet to have been there when the same thing is always on. They keep it mixed up and try to have new things coming through.
Prices are great. Draft menu is $6 for a pint or goblet, depending on the beer. $4 beers on Sunday.
Food is fantastic. No idea who the cooks are but they better keep them around because nothing goes better with good beer than good food. Food ranges from finger appetizers to pizza, burgers, house mac n' cheese, and sandwiches.
If you're ever in Las Vegas, venture off the strip for an afternoon/evening and check this place out. Well worth it.
