we stopped in for a bite to eat and a beer, expectations relatively low, yet secretly hoping for greatness. the atmosphere was pretty decent. lots of wood, lots of kitschy adornments lining the walls... it felt a touch forced, although partly because it's inside NY NY. not a bad place to escape the strip.

The tap list is the traditional Irish line-up with nothing shocking - Guinness, Smithwicks, Murphy's red, and a handfull of others, along with the usual american macro options. Not outstanding selection, but pretty decent by vegas standards. At $7 a pint, the value is fairly on-par with the rest of the strip.

All I had food-wise was their Corned Beef sandwich. and all i can say is it may have been one of the worst versions of Corned Beef I've had. Bacon-mayo aside, the beef was close to rubberbands and the flavor was mediocre... But thisn't Corned Beef Advocate... The beer was solid, the atmosphere nice, and there was something beyond BMC. I'd stop in again if I was passing by.

for vibe - about what you'd expect from a fake Irish bar in a casino themed like a fake New York City. beer is your standard UK import varieties, whether actually brewed in the UK now or not.

I've been to Vegas quite a few times. Matter of fact, I got married there. This place is a must stop for me each time I go. The atmosphere is what I would assume is Irish style pub (though I've never been to Ireland). But it gets it's point across. The food is good, but not great for Vegas. Don't get me wrong, it's delicious. But I would expect a little more from a Vegas restaurant. The waiters/waitresses give there best Irish accent while serving you which is pretty cool.

I like how the downstairs seating is. Even though the tables are close, each is kinda private because of short walls and booth angles. The upstairs is a little more open. At night, a band usually plays. Of course... Irish music. Really adds to the experience. All in all, a fun place to go. Plus they serve Smithwicks on draft. Delicious.

I don't normally do Irish bars (anywhere in the world), but it was happy hour (15.00-18.00) and we were thirsty. I was pleasantly suprised with what I found inside, it was cool and slot free!

We sat close to where the bands play, but it was quiet during the afternoon. We were surrounded by artifacts and stuff. Above the main bar was positioned a false pulpit and above that, each in his own alcove sat the busts of the 'Nine fine Irishmen'. The whole place is tastefully done, if a little 'over the top, Irish'. The tables are tightly packed, but outside there is a lot more room with a larger table as well as a selection of smaller places. Upstairs appeared to be a little plusher, again with an outside patio area to take the air on.

I had beers from Kilkenny and Smithwicks at $4.00 or $4.50 a pint, can't remember which (Happy hours May 2010), neither was great, but they weren't too bad either. We used the bar and cash to get served as we weren't eating, had to push through the people sitting at the bar and try and make the Eastern European? Barstaff understand me.

This was a nice little pub...and I'll emphasize little. It's not very big on the inside...upstairs seating for people eating dinner. It gets pretty crowded as there is a band in there almost every night. The two bands I saw were very good. The place is decorated cool too.

Anyways...moving on to the point. There beer selection was nothing special. Your typical Irish beers with Fosters and Newcastle thrown in there. The service wasn't bad for how busy it was. I was always able to get my beer in good timing.

In conclusion...a nice pub that can get a little a crowded at times and won't blow you away with their beer selection.

Stopped into this pub in NYNY for dinner. Looks like a standard Irish pub, with a bit more Vegas flair. Service was good, as my waitress was very attentive. Beer selection was pretty below average. Guinness, Harp, Smithwick's, Murphy's, and all the other boring UK/Irish beers you'd expect to see on an unimaginative tap list. I went with the Murphy's Red and the shepard's pie for dinner. The food actually seemed to be the highlight of this restaurant. The people next to me got chicken pot pie and fish and chips, and they were presented quite impressively. My shepard's pie came served in a steel pail they cooked it in, and it had a very nice flavor to it, and was quite filling. Beer and entrees were expensive, with most beers $7 and food in the $17 to $40 range. I really liked the food here, and I would have given this place a higher rating if only it had at least one or two BA-worthy beers on the menu.

I actually went a little out of my way to get to this place. I was searching for beer pubs in Las Vegas while I was there on holiday and thought this was the type of place I was looking for, an Irish bar with Irish music and Irish beer. You can't beat that combination in a crowded busy tourist trap town. I was looking for a nice place to sit down and unwind with a pint.

Upon arrival I did have to weave my way around the NY NY casino a few times to find the entrance but eventually found it. Walking in it felt like a big but cozy spot to take in a cold pint. The wood paneled walls give it that small pub appeal while there was a stage, bar and tables downstairs and we ventured to the upstairs bar. The staff was great and there were a few Irish and English ale's on tap. I had a Murphy's Red Irish Ale to start out with and was quite pleased with the freshness of the ale itself.

I didn't try any food but the aroma in the bar smelled quite tasty. I believe they had some typical Irish and American pub fare but I wasn't there for that. They had Guinness, Harp, Smithwick's (pronounced Smitticks in Ireland), Murphy's, Foster and Bass on tap and quite a few Irish whiskeys behind the bar. I had a rocks glass of Bushmill's 10 and then another pint of Guinness to wash it down.

I really liked this place and it wasn't crowded at all considering it was before noon on a Sunday. It was a great place to stop in and I wish I would have been there for the live band but I am sure I will be back in the evening next time to see it.

Went here on my recent trip to Vegas. Located in the New York New york this little beer bar was a very nice Old style Irish pub. Overall it is a neat little place with a cool atmosphere and with live music and people dancing provides a very fun an laid back evivironment. Where they reall lack is in the selection with only about 5 beers on tap and maybe 20 or 25 more in bottles there isn't muchj to choose from and are a bit expensive even for Vegas's standards. The next time you are in the area it warrents a visit, but this in not one I would break my neck to get to again.

2nd time here in two years, so it's worthy of a review. The beer selection is typical Irish/English/Scottish ales on draft with fizzy yellow US and Mexican lagers in the bottle. Had a couple of good Guinness pints, unfortunately poured in plastic cups. Must be a Vegas casino thing.

Prices were high, $7.50 for the pints, but that's Vegas.

The attraction here is the atmosphere and music selection unusual for Las Vegas. The place is assembled and adorned like a traditional Irish pub, large spaces, high ceilings, but with cozy corners as well. Reminds me of the many Fado bars I have visited across the US.

A nice destination if you are in Las Vegas an need a break from the Vegas nitelife, with a good traditional, but plastic, pint.

Nice surprise to find a place that took you away from the glitz of the strip. the decor was dark and soothing and you did feel you were in a Irish pub . The beer selection was nothing out of the ordinary and the food selection was typical pub fare complete with bangers and mash. Nice place to get away from it all.They offered a flat bread pizza that was very good which my wife ordered and i had to try the bangers that didn't disappoint. May have enjoyed the place a little more if we were able to sit at the bar to eat and able to take in the atomphere.. The bar area was very busy with a lot going on around it very impressive layout .

I have to admit, my visit to New York-New York was hardly about finding a good Irish pub, but this place was nice. The place is decorated to appear like a traditional Irish pub, complete with paraphernalia and signs on the wall, but I was more interested in the bar. The cost is bit high, but that's Vegas for you. The quality and service was a bit better than standard, and nothing spectacular, but far from poor. The food is fine, and in a city filled with pale copies of the real thing, this was a nice change. The view of the strip behind the casino's bridge mock up is phenomenal though!
