Bloody Mary, Queen of Brunch

Posted by Ellis Island on Feb 20, 2019 4:00:37 PM

Some of us chant her name three times in a dark bathroom to hopefully (not) summon a mirror-demon that will impress the cowardly sleepover attendees waiting outside. Others of us, namely those 21 and over, prefer to invoke the spirit by gesturing wordlessly to a drink menu while meditating in oversized sunglasses. Yes, we’re talking about the Bloody Mary—Queen of Brunch and the Hair of the Dog that will save us all.

Brewhouse Facelift

Posted by Ellis Island on Jan 9, 2018 5:59:43 PM

Just before the new year, we said goodbye to our beloved copper brewhouse and traded it in for a brand new brewing system. Our old brewhouse had been pumping out brews since we opened the brewing in 1998. 

Here are some of the stats of all the beer brewed by our old system: 

19,403,502 Glasses 

117,360 Kegs

4,000+ Complete Brews


The new system is now up and running, serving all the great Ellis Island brews we've been mixing over the years. With the new system we can brew four times more batches that we could before. This means more of our regular beers (light, hefeweizen, amber, IPA, stout and root beer), as well as more seasonals will be coming your way in 2018! Cheers!

Elvis is in the Building

Posted by Ellis Island on Oct 28, 2017 12:00:00 PM

If you have ever played blackjack at Ellis Island Casino, Hotel and Brewery or arrived to Ellis Island Karaoke a bit early on a Friday or Saturday night you may have caught a glimpse of Elvis.  Gary Benson as the Ellis Island Elvis impersonator, that is.  He was able to take a few moments to answer some questions about his popular gig and give a little more information about the man behind the jumpsuits.  Gary expresses a clear love of his craft that also exudes in his weekly show.  You can catch him performing as Elvis every Friday and Saturday night at 5pm or dealing blackjack after the show as well as Tuesday-Thursday at 6pm.

Sing for Strength - THANK YOU!

Posted by Ellis Island on Oct 25, 2017 7:08:34 PM

On October 17, 2017, we held a karaoke fundraiser to raise money for those effected by the October 1st Shootings that took place in Las Vegas. We called every local celebrity we could reach down to our karaoke stage to sing a song. For every entertainer who sang on our stage, we donated $1,000 to the Las Vegas Victims Fund. This was a ticketed event where we asked for a donation to come in and see the show. By the end of the night, we had raised $100,000.

Karaoke Madness: 10 of the Best Karaoke Songs of all Time

Posted by Ellis Island on Sep 4, 2017 12:11:35 PM

Many say that karaoke is an artform.  Ok, maybe not "many".  But it is a wonderful form of interactive entertainment that allows people to let the hidden performer within themselves shine.  And having won the title for Best Karaoke in Las Vegas, Ellis Island Casino, Hotel, and Brewery certainly knows a thing or two about this popular pastime.  A seasoned karaoke singer usually has a repertoire of songs they know will make the crowd go wild, and below we have listed 10 songs (in no particular order) that are certain to please any karaoke crowd.  Sticking to just 10 great karaoke songs was a bit of a challenge, but we trust that whether you're a beginner or a seasoned karaoke performer, these songs will have the crowd shouting for an encore.
