The Still Las Vegas - An Enticing Menu From Bar to Kitchen

The Still, located inside of the Mirage Hotel and Casino, brings you in with the multitude of televisions, a breathtaking bar and the airstream trailer in the back, but once inside it is everything else that will make you stay. Gourmet comfort food, craft cocktails and endless assortment of beer make The Still a sports fans paradise.

Finding a sports bar in Las Vegas is as about as difficult as finding a blackjack table, finding one that takes you beyond the typical game day fare is a little more difficult. This is where The Still comes in. Chef Brian Massie is where it all begins, as his name has become synonymous with creativity, fun and flavor on any menu he is associated with and The Still follows suit. You have to begin with the trio of choices when it comes to tacos. A fish taco is one thing, but creating it with fresh grilled Mahi Mahi and then making it really pop by adding cholula aioli, avocado and sweet cabbage slaw makes this one of the best fish tacos you will find in all of Las Vegas. You can also choose from the carne asada tacos that are served with the Mexican slaw or the chicken tacos that have a pineapple slaw. The slaws are always prepared fresh and that freshness and the unique flavor each one provides really separates these taco from what you are going to find elsewhere.

Chili Cheese Dog

You aren't going to find ceviche in most sports bars and The Still wows again with this one as the fresh ingredients really shine in this dish that contains crab, avocado and cucumber. Two classics that The Still does to perfect are the beer battered fish and chips and the chicken wings. What separates these two from most other fried dishes is the lightness of the batter that keeps you from getting that typical greasy feel that is commonplace. This allows you to really enjoy each of these dishes and not get bogged down during a long day in Las Vegas. The last item that I would recommend you really won't know until you take a bite why, but it is the chili cheese dog. It must be the great ingredients, the quality of the dog, the crispy onions, but it is just a lot richer and simply a lot better than any chili dog I have ever tried. Finally what might be the perfect to finish off your meal is with one of two classic treats. Churros, simply fresh and fluffy with a nice crispness that are dusted with cinnamon and topped off with chocolate curls. If you want to relive a little of your childhood you can try a flawless take on the smores. The next time you are grilling out and preparing your own smores you will likely be wishing you could create them like The Still does.

Mini Cheese Burgers

While the food is fabulous, that is far from the only reason to visit The Still. The beer and cocktails which are coming are as unique and wide-ranging as the menu. But beyond that you 22 televisions, couches, a private room that is perfect for a fantasy football draft or any private gathering. Of course there is the service, Las Vegas is a city built on service and The Still is as good as it gets. My waitress Lauren never made a wrong recommendation and despite it being a packed house never seemed to forget me.

Finally what would a visit to Las Vegas and a big sporting event be without an ice cold adult beverage of your choosing. The only problem for you is there are simply too many choices, beginning with the 50 craft beers. The draft beer selection goes well beyond the norm, featuring such choices as; Delerium Tremens, Goose Island Honkers Ale as well as a rotating seasonal handle that gives you something new to look forward to. The bottle and can selection goes even further, if you haven't experienced such beers as Rouge Dead Guy Ale and Green Flash West Coast IPA, this is the place to do it.

Crispy Style Chicken Wings

If you prefer a cocktail, The Still has a lineup filled with clever names and even more clever recipes. You can either begin or end with the Honey Badger, if you are coming out of the heat and need to cool off or you want to finish off your experience, this cocktail is close to an adult milkshake with a kick. Just an amazing and flavorful banana infused Jameson's Whiskey that is taken over the top with vanilla ice cream and honey syrup, this will solve any sweet tooth craving you might have. The banana infused Jameson's is so good that you can also find it in the Bo "Knows" Bananas, that features the rich New Holland Dragon's Milk Bourbon Barrel Stout, think chocolate covered bananas. The Still didn't stop at cocktails, they take shooters to a whole new experience. You can go for the sweet and fresh flavor of the Field of Dreams that features strawberry-basil infused moonshine or if you want a little more of a rich and bold flavor, the Batter Up is built around coffee infused Jameson Irish Whiskey.

Simply put, one visit to The Still and Bud Bud’s kitchen Airstream and you will be hooked. Sports fan or not, the food and endless lineup of unique cocktails and beer are more than enough to keep you coming back to experience flavor after flavor.
