Bars that offer comp drinks while playing

I have lurked here for a while and appreciate all the good information. I appreciate the trip reports since my partner and I have been going to AC for about a year now usually every month or couple of months since "discovering" it. I am still picking up tips and places to visit. We had assumed in our previous 4 years of living in Philly that AC was dirty and Crime Ridden so we never visited.

On to my question -- can anyone add to my list of bars that offer comp drinks while playing. I have know both casino floor bars at Showboat do and I have gathered from the board that B Bar at Borgata does. Any others? Its nice sometimes to just sit back and sip out of a real glass while playing now and then.

The poker bars ( Exhibition and The Poker Bar, not sure about the ne Sapphire Bar, will let you know next week ) at Harrahs do, The poker bar at Trump Plaza does ( limited hours, I believe it is up till 6:00 PM), can not confirm from experience but I have read the Mountain Bar at WWW comps IF you have a Diamond card.

B Bar at Borgata is the best. Free Guinness or Sam Adams..... can't be beat.

B Bar is definitely the best, I get comped bombay Sapphire, Grey Goose, even single malt scotch, AND, they have the best VP pay schedules in AC, if you have a choice, thats the place to play.

dbljoker - Since when does the B Bar comp Grey Goose and Single Malt? I've always been charged for them when playing at the B Bar.

I always get everything comped but I am a regular and have become very friendly with the bartenders so perhaps I get a few favors. I know they will comp both my wife and I even if only one is playing. I guess I just assumed everyone was treated like that. But they do comp top shelf like Ketel one and tanquerry.

I'm sure that may also be a factor, they know we are there to gamble, not to get free drinks, they probably have leeway when they are serving a known good gambler. There are so many regulars at the B Bar it just seems we all get what we want, I do see them police non gamblers trying to get free drinks, playin a quarter whenever someone is watching, We also tip well so that may also come into play. It's just like on the floor, start them off with a nice tip and they will usually take good care of you.

I normally order a well drink of some kind, tip well then move on to my more favored drinks when I visit a new place for vp. I can't say I can't afford to just pay for my drinks but its one of those things that it tastes better when its comp haha. I am sure people are there to leech but its nice to just drink out of a real glass while I am gambling. Also I have found the bartenders at Showboat to be very friendly and it adds to the enjoyment when I am in loss mode.
