This place is in a great location for those staying at Palazzo or Venetian, or attending a conference in the convention center. It was clearly built to feed the convention goers need for alcohol - be it beer, wine, or cocktails. Pleasantly there is a strong focus on quality draft beers here and during my several visits this place was crowded at noon, mid afternoon and evening. The bartender told me there has not been one slow day since opening earlier this year.
The decor is modern, with a bar in front and dining tables in the back. The taps are easily viewable, and there were two cask ale offerings also above the bar. There were 24 draft offerings and a large amount of bottles that were visable from the bar stool. There was a good mix of beer styles from Stone, Deschutes, Lagunitas, Lost Coast, Ballast Point, Firestone, Green Flash, Big Dogs, and Tenaya Creek to name a few. A nice beer menu makes it easy to make a selection as it was broken up by style.
The food we had were just some appetizers, but they were pretty good. I found service to be very attentive and despite the big crowds on some visits, they were constantly hustling to fill orders. The bartenders also knew the beers and didn't hesitate to give you an opinion either.
For those that complain about prices - this place is all about location and it is clear that it is focused on making as much money as possible from the conventioneers, not creating a cool low cost beer bar for the general public. I can't knock them for that especially since the bar stools and dining tables were gerenally full on my visits. But I would still come here for a pint or two if I wasn't here at a convention.

Located way the hell in the back of the Venetian, this place looks like your typical bar/club that plays (ooonce, ooomph) heavy bass electronic music. Metal, lighting, chic decor. You get the idea. Frankly, the atmosphere points are more because of the Venetian, beautiful casino and decor.
Nothing spectacular about the beers, the usual run of the mill stuff you'll see at Lee's, just at about 800% markup. Usual CA/CO/UT/OR brands here. Lost Coast, North Coast, Sierra Nevada, Uinta, Deschutes etc. . . stuff you pay $7 for 6 packs, $9 on tap. I don't understand the rationale of people saying don't complain about the price, you get what you pay for etc. . . I got the same beer, just at a markedly inflated price. I'm not a scenester, so paying more $ doesn't mean anything to me, other than more $ for the same product. Vegas as a rationale? Pffft. Come on man, I'm from Nevada, I remember when Vegas was cheap, not ridiculously expensive. Yes, there will be apologists for them, but hey, beer lovers care about beer, not the high rent to be on the strip. Service, was not really friendly. Selection was nice, but nothing I don't have at my house.
If you're stuck on the strip, and want better beer, I'd recommend getting a cab and going to Aces & Ales. Better vibe, cheaper drinks, better quality drinks, cooler people inside.

Some Vegas friends said I should give this place a look so I went last week. The atmosphere is very confortable, old artwork and stuff in every corner, its probably fake as this pub has only been open a few months but still nice to look at .The bar is long, I did not count but like 40 bar seats.The tap list is not huge like 20 or so but the bottle list is much bigger.
For beer I had a bottle of North Coast Scrimshaw, and a Kumbalcher Pilnser from the tap, this was a mistake, did not care for it.
For food I had the Poutine, this is a dish common in Canada, it is french fries, cheese curds and gravy. Public House kicks it up a notch with a Duck Confit on top, it was outstanding.
A few words of advice for anyone thinking of going, look at the menu carefully, two examples.A basic burger is $16, expensive even by Vegas standards. A PBR beer is $7, outrageous!!
Also as the previous reviewer said, and the bartender totally agreed the music from the bar across the hall can be way to loud in the evening and ruin a nice experience.

I visited this place twice on a recent trip to Vegas. Of the primary new gastropubs i've been to in Vegas (Burger Bar, Todd English Pub, Holsteens) this one had the best beer list and most knowledgable staff by far. Many beers I've never seen before from breweries like Uinta, Jolly Pumpkin and numerous others. They also had three casks and all the bartenders knew a lot about all the beers.
The food was good (i had the poutine, which was outstanding) but overall not as good as the places mentioned above.
This is a great place and (I believe) the best beer list in Las Vegas. I think it's a bit pricey but not compared to any similar place.
I would highly recommend it.

Stopped in here for a few minutes to rest and catch up on some college football scores. The Public House is in the Venetian, or rather the mall between the Venetian and Palazzo. Great atmosphere. Lots of really high quality beer on tap and in bottles. The staff is friendly and attentive. It is very pricey, but not really out of line for the area.

As other have mentioned, this place is fairly pricey. But it makes up for it in the sense that it is one of the few spots on the Vegas strip that has a decent beer list. The food is really good and you could tell the staff didn't know a whole lot about the beers. All of the beers I saw here were available at the whole foods down the street - if you want to take some home. Also in the venetian check out First restaurant, they have a decent beer list too. Also worth noting, a few of the casinos on the strip have a few craft beers available for free as long as you are gambling. I had a few free draft Widmer Nelson's and DFH 60 Minute IPA pints at Bellagio while I played poker.

I checked this place out over the weekend with some friends that were in from out of town. I had been hearing about this place and thought this would be a great time to check it out. First impression was WOW not in a good way. This place is extremely expensive $$$$15 for a 12oz bottle of Old Rasputin $$$$18 for a Stone Smoked Porter. So that is where this place is headed with there prices. I started out with a Rogue Hazelnut Nectar one problem when i received it IT was an IPA. The waitress ordered the wrong beer no big deal, But then she did the same thing to my friend and when he told her she brought the wrong beer she rolled her eyes and acted as if it was are fault. I think if your going to serve good beer your staff should be trained and know what the difference is between a IPA and a Brown Ale. So we ate i ordered there burger it was ok for $18 i would think it would be great. the place is basically a glorified yard house, With out all the taps. They have a big bottle menu but you pay for it. We were there at night and the place next door was really loud with house music. So that didn't help the cause much either. All in all at the end of the night are tab was $260 for 4 people. Pretty steep for 9 beers and 4 entries. I would rather go the the yard house and save $160.

I almost didn't go to the Public House because there were no other reviews, but I'm so glad that I did...
This place is awesome. The 24 beers thoughtfully selected on tap, the 400+ bottles, the delicious food and the great service, make it a MUST VISIT for any B.A. while in Las Vegas.
My wife and I were lucky enough to hit the Public House up on a Monday right around noon. If you are not into crowds, this is an ideal time to visit. Mondays are transition days in Vegas as groups go out in the a.m. and arrive in the p.m.
Our server, Ryan, was as enthusiastic about the bar menu as he was the food.
He made some great recommendations that paired perfectly with our meals.
I started with a Tenaya Creek IPA and then went with a Uninta Cock Eyed Cooper Barleywine and finished with Lost Coast 8 Ball Stout.
I highly recommend the Pub Burger with its Bacon Marmalade, Gruyere Cheese & Guiness Aioli.
Trust me, the Nom Nom Burger @ Holstein's is great and this is even better.
I also must mention that this is one of the two places that you can grab a Deschutes cask beer while in Las Vegas. The Public House has three hand pulls and was featuring Mirror Pond Pale Ale, Inversion IPA and Black Butte Porter when we visited.
The only negative that one may find is that I can see this place getting very crowded as the day goes by and the V Bar across the hall is notorious for its loud bass and house music, so you might want to follow our lead and visit around lunch.
Don't let the lack of reviews prevent you from visiting the Public House at the Venetian.
You will not be dissappointed...

1) To be clear, this place it relatively expensive. However, compared to Las Vegas in general you shouldn't be surprised. You aren't drinking $1 BMC (though they do have some macros available). You get what you pay for. You might be paying $8 for a beer but you won't find that beer any place else on the strip.
2) If you live on the west-coast, I'm not sure you'll be as thrilled with the beer list as I am. Being an east-coaster, there are things I don't see everyday and that gets me excited.
3) There are clearly members of the staff that are still learning, but generally speaking, this staff enjoys beer and I appreciate that. They weren't trying to up-sell me on anything but rather making sure I was finding the style/brand I wanted to try. They were also quite friendly which I appreciated.
4) They do a beer passport. Call me a sucker, but I like little things like this. It is 50 entries which I'll probably never complete but still a fun thing. There are 20 pages of "required" beers and 30 of "you choose" drafts (and I assume bottles). The ones already in book are ALL good.
5) As much as I'm able on this trip, I'll be back.

The best place on the strip for craft beers. But be prepared for the prices as drafts are $8 to $12 each. They always have high end brews on draft and an incredible bottle selection. On my last trip they had Lagunitas Sucks on cask, and multiple beers from The Bruery and Squatters on tap.
Matt the bartender knows his beers and has plenty of stories to tell.
This bar is off the casino floor in The Venetian and is worth the trip.
