You may be thinking you've seen it all when it comes to Sin City's nightlife scene. Bottles of vodka marked up 400 percent? Check. Midwestern tourists dancing on poles? Check. Armadillo disco ball? Check -- wait, what?
It's OK, you read that right. And that's exactly why you should hit up Revolver at Santa Fe Station -- to see something you haven't seen before.
In addition to the armadillo disco ball, who goes by Delilah, Revolver also has a few other different trick up the sleeves of its cowboy shirt.
First -- it's not on the Strip. This doesn't necessarily equal a bad thing, so don't worry. With its location working to its advantage, Revolver's crowd is a nice mix of locals and visitors -- and everyone's got their heads on straight. Being at Revolver means you probably set out to go to Revolver and didn't just stumble in. That means everyone's good time is at the front of their minds -- no one's going to get dangerously crazy, which is nice.
There's also a weekly bull riding competition, and although there are a few others in town, it's still something of a novelty, especially when paired with Revolver's music selections. Instead of making things dedicatedly country, there's also some rock and roll and Top 40. If a little twang, just ain't your thang, wait until the next song and things will get better for you.
So, if you're looking for a good time without the headaches or you're looking to meet your very first armadillo disco ball, head over to Revolver and give it a shot.
