Besides being right on the strip, I thought this place was pretty dumpy and had a very odd vibe with the beer pong and punching machine. Admittedly, I did stop in for a slice of pizza one night, but I'm still puzzled at what the heck I saw when I was there. It's like.. if the guys on the show/movie Jackass started a casino, O'Sheas is what it would ultimately become.

It fits a market niche. O'Shea's was opened 22 years ago in place of a parking garage. The section is too small to hold much else. It gives the ultra low roller a place on the strip while still being connected to the outside air (unlike Casino Royale). The casino will be torn down when Project Linq is built (although the name will be preserved in a section of Flamingo.

I loved the old boardwalk before MGM tore it down. What a great dump!

Drunken unruly frat-rats need a place where they can feel comfortable. Beer Pong brings in over a million dollars a year.
I'm unfamiliar with a show entitled Jackass but from the title is seems it would indeed be relevant to O'sheas.

You can ask any taxidriver in town to take you to O'Sxxx's (excrement). They will know what you mean. They won't laugh at the name. They know what its like and they know what the rowdy drunken customers are like.

It's called "slumming."

BTW what is Beer Pong? It sounds like an unssuccessful late 70s videogame.

Beer Pong - Get a long folding table. Arrange plastic cups on each end in a triangle formation similar to bowling. Place a few oz of beer in each one. Teams of 2 stand on opposite ends of the table and try bouncing a ping pong ball into the cup. If it goes in, the non throwing team drinks it. The winner is the one who nails all the cups, with the losers finishing the drinks left on the winners side. Repeat until blind drunk.
