“May your pockets be heavy— your heart be light,” recited Thomas to the O’Sheas faithful, “And may good luck pursue you at O’Sheas, each morning, afternoon and night.”

After a 23-year reign on the Las Vegas Strip, the original O’Sheas closed in the spring of 2012 to make room for The LINQ, Caesars Entertainment’s $550 million outdoor retail, dining and entertainment district. The original O’Sheas enjoyed a strong following and was beloved by tourists and locals alike. The reimagined space features elements of the original Strip-side casino where guests will once again be able to enjoy blackjack, beer pong and live entertainment in a welcoming and fun environment.

Guests at the ceremony celebrated with custom hats, beads and commemorative beer mugs. In traditional O’Sheas spirit, the festivities continued with a beer pong match between Thomas and The Quad’s headliner Jeff Civillico, who took the win.

Not shy of the spotlight, the original O’Sheas was featured on the big screen and even the Guinness World Book of Records. Popular rock band, Imagine Dragons, began their thriving career at O’Sheas while “Vegas Vacation” starring Chevy Chase took O’Sheas to the big screen. In 2001, the bar set a world record for the largest nationwide toast in history.

Although the brand new location offers a fresh start, the original O’Sheas is deeply rooted in the architecture .The original marquee has been refurbished and stands at The LINQ side entrance, while a hand-painted mural of the first O’Sheas adorns the Lucky Bar, and iconic hammered-tin ceiling tiles serve as a decorative finish on the acoustic panels throughout the space.

While keeping the traditional Irish roots alive, O’Sheas provides daily entertainment including live bands, Disc Jockeys and an interactive juke box to please every crowd. The 5,000-square foot space houses 11 table games, 15 video poker spaces, six beer pong tables, and three bars – Lucky Bar, Dublin Up Bar and the outdoor Blarney Bar. With value-priced drinks available all day long, including the house specialty, the whiskey-infused Irish Margarita, $3 draft beers and daily drink specials, O’Sheas will once again be the most beloved Irish-themed casino and bars on the Las Vegas Strip.
