RIP Sky Lounge

I am sad to report that Sky Lounge, our favorite little-known Vegas bar with a view, has closed. I guess this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to anyone who heard us describe during show #60 how empty the place was on a Saturday night during March Madness, but still quite a bummer. Located at the top of the Polo Towers, Sky Lounge had a great view and a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. The bartenders were friendly and the drinks were tasty. It will be missed.

Thanks to listener rjgottaplay for the info. A call to Polo Towers confirmed the bar closed about three weeks ago (just after our last visit) with no plans to reopen.
