As with all Lee's Liquor this one is hit or miss. I have been able to get some good finds here. If shopping here make sure to check dates as there is a lot of out of code beer here. I wont buy anything that isn't dated from Lee's Liquor. As far as the staff you can forget about any sort of help from them. I have asked alot of questions about what is on sale and they never know and usually refuse to check for you. The prices are usually good and I will usually stop in if I'm passing it but won't ever make a special trip to Lee's Liquor. There is much better options then Lee's Liquor for beer in Las Vegas.

This is the smallest Lee's store Ive ever been in and its just an subpar liquor store. Nothing too pleasant about the atmosphere, it is a liquor store as the isle can be a tight squeeze. Quality is a hit and miss....out of codes can be huge problem if you arent paying attention. Nothing too exciting when it comes to the selection as they carry a bunch of year round beers which creates a decent selection. They for the most time are more expensive than Total Wine which hurts some of it value. I think Lee's is a better option than a grocery store but remember you get what you pay for.

This lee's has to be the smallest one in town, if its not the smallest, he selection sure is. Kind of fills like a closet inside there. Not much light gets in, so good for beer. Coolers line the back, other beer can be found on shelves. Of course wine and hard alcohol are there also. Prices as always with lee's are awesome. This one is probably the second closest to me, but their is no real reason to stop here unless i need sam adams boston lager, sierra nevada pale ale, or some fat tire. If its not at other lee's. its not here.

I haven't been here recently. The reason being is that it has the worst selection out of any of the Lee's I have been to and just seems like one of the dirtest ones also. From what I remember they had quite a bit of things but nothing that comes close to other Lee's. I also don't think they have near as many bombers as the others either. It is still a pretty good store if you just want to pick up a thing or two that isn't to hard to find. I would advise either driving down to the one on W. flamingo or on W. Lake Mead instead. Both of thoes have quite a bit better selection (especially the Lake Mead one).

Stopped in for a look-see to find some different west coast beers I haven't had yet. Nice large wine and beer selection, but the beers were pretty basic west coast fair, with Alaskan beers and a decent Belgian section. The only beer that stood out was the Stone 9th Anniversary but I already found some of those on the east coast.

The refridgerator section is clean and well stocked (it was before lunchtime), and there are a nice variety of bombers and sixers.

I prefer the Lake Mead location over this store as they seem to have a few more choices. But this is a good place to stop if you are in the immediate area and looking for some good solid beers.

Made a couple of visits here on my just-completed trip to Vegas. First to grab a few bottles of stuff I can't get at home (not supposed to bring alcohol back to the hotel huh...as I see the fine print of the menu that tells me a Miller Lite will be $5) then another stop on the way to the airport to get a few more bottles of good stuff to take home (but neither Southwest nor the TSA have any problem with me taking the good stuff from Vegas to KC, get a clue Harrahs/Rio).

While the selection at this particular store wasn't spectacular, they had exactly what I wanted (which is damn near anything I can't get here at home). A few Alaskan Ambers here, some Arrogant Bastards there, and some Stone Smoked Porters for fun. Too bad I couldn't pack enough to last me until the distributors around here get a clue.

The store itself was nice and reasonably clean with most space devoted to wine, but beer gets its fair share. I didn't need much service, but checkouts were efficient and friendly. Prices were pretty reasonable (Stone bombers $3.49).

My research found this the most convenient location from the Strip area for those of the tourist persuasion. Probably isn't bad from downtown either. Your mileage may vary.

i havent been to this lees in quite awhile. it is much smaller in comparison to some locations like the one on lake mead and the one on sunset. the beer selection isnt near what it is in the other locations either. granted they carry some northcoast, unibrou, sierra nevada, lost coast, rogue, stone, some germans etc. so yes it is a better than average selection. staff was friendly for the most part. so basically if your around the rainbow/charleston area and your lookin for a few beers, check it out, otherwise the other lee's locations will suite your needs alot better.
