Gilley's always features a good atmosphere and seldom will you have to deal with the over packed nature of some of the local bars. However, this one holds a special place in my heart for sunday nights, but I will get to that in a moment.
Throughout the week the excitement level will vary at this location, dependent upon the crowd, live entertainment and number of folks brave enough to take on the bull. Personally, its pretty far from where I usually stay so I prefer to go for Sunday's Bikini Bull Riding contest.
Sunday night is incredibly fun because of this. The competition typically starts around 10pm and goes until they finish, with several rounds and breaks in between. Girls who are signing up for this can expect cash prizes if they win. They should also expect to be asked to strip down to their bikini or underwear for their rides, and as it is Vegas do not be surprised if some photos get snapped. (Not that I agree with that part, I simply observed it happening.) The cash prize the nights I was there was $200, but I hear it varies and can go higher.
As far as drinks go, you can expect the standard ~$7 beer but they often have a featured spirit on 2-for-1. They can give you this in one glass, or two drinks instead, as you request it.
Enjoy a good time here everyone!
