Two of the rally cool thing about Las Vegas are the bars on the street and the fact that you can drink on the street - or at least the sidewalks. We had moved down to Fremont Street to take a break from the strip and took full advantage of both of these opportunities. The first street bar we targeted was right in front of the Golden Gate Casino. The bartender was busy putting on a show by tossing a couple of shakers in the air from behind his back, and then juggling them around a bit. He was pretty good and we hoped his skill translated to what he was going to put in those shakers.
We ordered a couple of margaritas on the rocks and were pleasantly surprised when he asked what kind of tequila we wanted. After having spend several days in bars who slapped together a mediocre drink without any consultation with the client,and then charged a hefty price tag, it was nice to have some interface and options. We told him to choose whatever he thought was best and go from there, just to see how that worked out, as we were beginning to think we had stumbled on a real bartender who took pride in mixing up a decent drink even in a budget atmosphere.
As it turns out he did a great job, delivering an impressive margarita that ranked a solid 3, potentially a 3.5+. And the price was just as impressive - $6.50 - for a decent sized cup (no glass on the street).
So, off we went, down Fremont Street sipping on some decent drinks and checking out the sites including a great live band, on stage just a block from the Golden Gate Casino street bar. Fremont Street is worth the visit!
The margarita from the Golden Gate Casino ranked an impressive 3 on the Limer Scale.
