They are promoting a Reverse Happy Hour with 50% off well drinks and domestic beers while you “DJ or clock your iPod” and watch Film Noir on the flat screen TV’s. They advertise caffeine, conversation and cocktails. Weeknights only. Go to their website for more details Platinum 211 E Flamingo La Vegas NV. (at Koval)

NOTE: We went by Thursday night to check it out and the bartender did not know about the Reverse Happy Hour deal. Sports was playing on the TV. A call to the Hotel on Friday morning assured me that the promotion is indeed happening. Hopefully, the bartender will be informed. Still, we had a great time and met some interesting people at the bar, including “El Blondie” a British professional poker player in town for the World Series of Poker. He likes the Platinum and Stir because it’s Off the Strip but still happenin’. We heard his story over a couple of Laphroaig’s. Now that folks, is the beauty of Las Vegas. You never know what you’re going to find or who you’re going to meet. You just need to get out of the house.

We started with sparkling wines at the rooftop, which has a great view of the Strip from the airport down to the Stratosphere. I was amazed at just how good a view they have. Reds and whites were poured at the pool and restaurant area on the 5th floor which is very chic and has a view of the Strip as well, albeit not as good as the rooftop. Dessert wines were served in the ground floor lounge Stir. I like the decor of the Platinum, it’s modern but still inviting and they did a lot visually with troemps d’oeil (meaning it looks like it cost more than it did.) It’s a clever place, quite intimate. They were a bit overwhelmed at first with the numbers of Chris people, but landed nicely on their feet. As for Chris – what a star! I need to get his story.
