Twenty years ago, Las Vegas had plenty of neighborhood bars offering pub grub, drinks and gaming. But the visionaries behind Steiner’s Nevada Style Pub saw the potential for something more.
“We wanted to create a tavern that Las Vegas had never seen before,” says Roger Sachs, Steiner’s owner and director of operations. He set out to build a place for gaming along with “service at the highest level and as good of a restaurant as they have [anywhere] in the city.”
On May 1, Steiner’s celebrated its 20th anniversary with a party at its original spot (8410 W. Cheyenne Ave. 702-395-8777). It has three locations around the Valley—and another unique distinction: It pioneered the concept of the “Nevada-style pub.” But what does that mean?
“It relates to all the art and artifacts that adorn the walls,” Sachs says. His company worked with the Nevada Historical Society in Reno to procure old photos, and they purchased old stock and mining certificates from a collector in Death Valley. “Everything is traditional Nevada.”
Steiner’s has fully embraced Golden Knights fever with special gaming promotions during broadcasts. “Steiner’s is a hometown bar, and one that supports everything around it,” Sachs says. He’s already planning out ways to support the Raiders.
