It’s golden when you’re not in a rush
Golden Nugget opened its Bar 46 lounge and party pit venue last year as a place for people to come and pre-game before heading out on the island or to stop by after having dinner to enjoy a drink and some entertainment. The full bar is open all day, every day, but the party really starts on the weekend nights.
Fridays and Saturdays will make you a 46er fan
Live DJs play Top 40 hits and dancers move to the grooves from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. every Friday and Saturday, bringing a high-energy atmosphere to the casino floor. The music is modern and mainstream, and the dancers add that necessary element of movement to create a sense of excitement. Most allow the dancers to show how it’s done, but there’s nothing stopping anyone from joining in.
You can gamble at your leisure
Some people get bored sitting at slots and video poker machines, others get bored just sitting and drinking at the bar, and for those groups casinos opened lounges like Bar 46. The bar top is rounded with video poker machines and there also are six table games in the space. If you’re the type to go to a bar and play Photo Hunt or shoot pool, this kind of place is for you.
They have 46 types of liquid gold
In this sense, that means bourbon, the barrel-aged American whiskey that was long a favorite of gold miners and is the now the choice of the sophisticated to the sloppy (maybe depending on how many you’ve already had). It’s at least worth stopping by to scope out the selection and try something you haven’t before.
Specials come on special nights
The bar does not have regular specials at this point, but it does have particular events when it has reduced prices and other enticements to draw people in, partnering in the past with companies such as Patron tequila to offer promotions you’ll want to experience. If you’re at the casino anyway, it’s worth stopping in just to see what they’re up to.
