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.

    Very sad. We’re glad we got to see it, and that I got to take some video of that view.

    That’s a final place of 117th for me. Not bad considering this is the first time I’ve played anywhere except my Palm Pilot! If anyone else has a Palm or Pocket PC – check out Realdice’s Multiplayer Championship Poker – has an over-the-air option so you can play fake money against people on your mobile device – it’s very cool!

    By the way, congrats on 20th … you even beat Brian!

    Sorry that I couldn’t have been more help to the team; finished 99th after 40 mins. Made a couple of stupid plays to end up at this point. Not that I wouldn’t necessarly finished In The Money (ITM), but it would of been better than this.

    I have been jealous of three writers in my life: F. Scott Fitzgerald, Nick Hornby, and now this guy.
