Here are five top picks for guests to grab the bull by the horns, while also enjoying some of the city's best food and drink offerings.
Cadillac Ranch at Town Square
Skill Level: easy
Cadillac Ranch focuses on bringing authentic, all-American cuisine and entertainment to its customers in a fun, dynamic environment. Cadillac Ranch offers bull-riding to guests looking to go on a spin for only $3; air bags surround the electric bull, providing plenty of cushioning when guests are bucked off. For those seeking a beverage to help recover, VEGAS.com recommends the Pear-fect 59 Cadillac.
Gilley's inside TI
Skill Level: medium
Gilley's is known as the barbeque house that was made famous at the former New Frontier and features the best Texas-style cuisine in town. The bull at Gilley's feels more like a real bull; the back and forth motion pushes guests to find a good balance. Gilley's bull operates on hydraulic and is $5 per ride. The beverage of choice at Gilley's is a shot of Jack Daniels.
Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill inside Harrah's Las Vegas
Skill Level: medium
Toby Keith's features red, white and blue décor, sexy cowgirl-attired bartenders and of course, live country music from bands hand-picked by Keith. Guests can ride the electric bull for free; VEGAS.com reviews the bull as a real 'arm jerker' and one that really bucks with power, causing a great amount of pull on the contestant's arm. Guests are encouraged to try the signature Whiskey Girl cocktail to help heal the wounds.
PBR Rock Bar & Grill inside Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino
Skill Level: advanced
PBR Rock Bar & Grill gets its name from the world-famous event and offers a great place to see all the action and hang with the pros. The bull operator works on tips, and the crowd here is sure to provide support with an exciting environment. VEGAS.com rates the hydraulic bull as a fighter for its tendencies to dip down, making it easy for riders to flip over the front if they aren't prepared for the angle. PBR Rock Bar offers the signature Hat Bender to recover from the rough ride.
Stoney's Rockin' Country
Skill Level: advanced
Located on the south end of Las Vegas Blvd., Stoney's is reputable among locals and tourists alike for being a place where country music fans can grab a drink, take a spin and hit the massive dance floor for some two-stepping. Stoney's bull is also hydraulic and the operator works off tips. Guests who are experts at bull-riding will have the time of their life on the realistic bull, not to mention a pumped crowd to cheer them on.
