The small Irish-themed drinking and gaming venue is best known for having affordable table games, cheap beer and beer pong.
Originally opened in 1989, O'Sheas Casino closed in April 2012 to make way for construction of The Linq, but it returned to Sin City in big way at end of 2013.
Now measuring 5,000 square feet, O'Sheas Casino boasts two indoor bars (the Dublin Up Bar and the Lucky Bar) and an outdoor bar (the Blarney Bar). Guests can order a variety of Irish, European and domestic beers here. There are some draft beers for $3 and shots for $5. Signature cocktails cost about $10 and include the St. Peppermint Patty, the Pot of Gold, the Irish Bloody Mary and the Irish Margarita, which is made with Jameson Irish Whiskey, sweet and sour mix, Cointreau and lime juice. In addition, specially priced beers and shots are available weekly during Throwback Thursdays.
Among the other amenities at O'Sheas Casino are 11 tables games, 15 video poker machines and six beer pong tables. Beer pong tournaments are held daily beginning at 3 p.m. There is a small stage that showcases bands and other live entertainment nightly. You may even see Mr. Lucky the Leprechaun take over DJ duties occasionally.
Even though the old O'Sheas Casino was imploded, several pieces of the original establishment were preserved. Its marquee was refurbished and has been hung above the entrance from The Linq. Some of the tin ceiling tiles have been repurposed and serve as decorative finishes throughout the property. Plus, a large picture of the original O'Sheas Casino forms the backdrop behind the Lucky Bar.
