It was a dark and stormy night, when she walked into the bar. It was small swanky and filled the usual characters that are associated with a joint like that. She looked around until she saw him. He smiled a smile that can only mean one thing, trouble.
Ok , so it wasn’t raining or storming when I arrived at The Mob Bar, but it was swanky and there was a guy in there that had a smile that meant trouble. It was only The Jerm, our host for this month’s meeting, waiting for everyone to arrive. We were excited to see what he had in store. First up was a questionnaire with great mob questions like: “Where in Vegas is the best place to hide a body?” and “Who in the group would be the best hitman?” the best part was the best Mobster impression! The winner got 4 cans of Chef Boyardi and $7.56.
The cocktail listing was standard, but it’s the ambiance that keeps this place exciting. Many of the patrons got
into the spirit and dressed up, and the staff from the Mob Museum kept the place alive with laughter. Jazz music spilled over you while photos of screen starlets watch you drink. My favorite was the Espresso Martini, made with Van Gogh Double Espresso Vodka, Absolut Vanilla Vodka, Bailey’s, Irish Cream, and a Shot of Espresso. Be careful on these, you can drink two without a second thought! Yummy! You can see their full menu on their Facebook page.
Food at the Mob Bar is provided by one of my favorite places to eat downtown, The Triple George Grill. We feasted on Clams Casino, Spaghetti & Meatball Bites (a favorite of Panda P’s and Bloody Maria), Caprese Salad and the Chicken Parmesan Sliders – Paddy Wagon swears by them! The prices are reasonable and the portions are enough to share with one person, so order two and you’ll be set.
All in all, it was a great time. You can call or email the bar for
reservations to really make you feel like a Mob Boss; just confirm with them a day prior to jog their memory. The bartenders were dressed with white shirts bow ties and barters around their arm, but it was kind of sad to see that the wait staff was not dressed as they were highlighted on their FB page.
All in all it was a unanimous decision that the Mob Bar meeting was a huge success and we don’t want to see this joint swimmin’ with the fishes. If you get my drift! So if you know what’s good for yous…take the offer.
