Can I bring a bottle of liquor on the plane ?

Are you allowed to put a bottle of vodka in your checked bags ? I'd like to have a bottle in my hotel room. The plastic 1.5 liter kind, not glass obviously

No,you can't even bring a bottle of water past security.

Your subject line is a bit misleading versus the question you're asking...

Can "you" bring a bottle of liquor on the plane? No.

Are you allowed to put a bottle in your checked luggage? Yes.

Quite honestly I don't know why you would want to bother. They do have liquor stores in Las Vegas where you can buy vodka.

alright thanks, sorry for the confusion. Just figured it would be easier to bring a bottle in my luggage than having to worry about finding a liquor store.

on that topic, is there any liquor stores near Caesars ?

If you buy it at the airport after security then you can carry it onboard. It is only liquids purchased before security that are restricted.

There is a liquor store across the street from Caesar's near between Harrahs Carnival Court and the Imperial Palace. Have fun!

Also several gift shops inside Caesars sell liquor!

"If you buy it at the airport after security then you can carry it onboard. It is only liquids purchased before security that are restricted."

Are there airports where you can buy 1.5 liter bottles of booze after security? I've never seen a liquor store in an airport, with the obvious exception of duty-free shops. Which won't apply to the OP since he's traveling domestic.

We generally don't bring enough to fill a checked bag with us to Vegas, so we'll take a couple bottles with us and have our own bar in the hotel room. While the prices aren't that different, it does save us a few bucks per bottle on average from what I've seen, and it saves us a cab ride or an hour's time walking somewhere and back.

Since our preferred liquors do not come in plastic containers, we fill plastic water bottles, put the cap on tight, and double zip-lock bag each container in case of spills.
