We've been here before, for some food, but during our latest trip we stopped in for a quick beer.
The restaurant/bar is quite large with a nice size bar. There are a few beers of tap as well as bottle beers. The bar has large tv screens opposite of eachother and is called the Rivalry bar. The Yankees on one side, Redsoxs on the other. There seems to be some sort of score keeping for games.
We walked in here at about 12:30 and were told that the bar was closing soon (oh yeah, CT doesn't allow alcoholic beverages to be sold after 1 am). Ferni ordered a Heinekin (and if you want to order more than one, you aren't allowed either) and I had a BlueMoon.
The Heineken was $3.50 and the Blue Moon was $6
The Shrine is located in the MGM Grand here in the casino easily accessible by large corridors and walkways.
The interior of the club is Asian inspired with some beautiful dark wood booths and beautiful couches with lantern hanging from the ceiling. You can also have a meal here, they have a large selection of sushi as well as starters and typical Asian dishes.
We arrived a bit early, sometime around 10:00 and we sat at a nice couch and orderd something to munch on. We ordered the pu-pu platter for two which came with shrimp dumpling, lobster rangoon, pork katsu, shrine wings and calamari crunch. It was way too much food and we picked through out the night. I orderd a Apple Martini and Ferni had a Rum and Coke.
The dj was spinning some excellent music and we hung out for a bit before we decided it was getting too crowded for us.
Dress Code: Trendy, the girls wore either jeans and a cute top with heels or cute little flirty dresses, the guys all wore dressing jeans with trendy shirts and casual shoes.
We weren't hungry, but we decided to stop in the Hard Rock and sit at the very nice bar for a few drinks.
The Hard Rock is massive with a cavernous feeling, very high ceilings and of course all the memorabilia hanging on the walls.
The bartender was quite nice and promptly came over to us to take our drink order. Ferni had a Heinekin, I had a club soda with lime.
Nice place to just relax, enjoy a drink with your loved one while discussing all the different memorabilia on the walls!!
This is a really nice bar located here at the Rainmaker Casino. Its an open air bar with a nice size area with couches, stools and tables.
We sat a nice table close to the bar and placed our order. I wanted a nice glass of Pinot Noir, while Ferni ordered a Heinekin. We were discussing the days events and just enjoying each other's company before Ferni hit the Poker table for another few hours before leaving Foxwoods for the continuation of our roadtrip to Newport, RI.
The prices are steep, the glass of wine was $16 and the beer $7.50.
