harrahs casino and your own drinks from the room?

Hi, usually post on the vegas and ac forums.

despite only being a few hours from cherokee we have never visited.

I know like many casinos they cant offer free drinks while gaming,but my wife and i when we get away always like to relax and enjoy a few nice in room drinks, Do they have any probs with a player entering the casino area with their own mixed drinks?

Never had any problems in other locations except once in atlantic city,the cw insisted on getting me a clear cup so they could moniter what /how much I had to drink in addition to the drinks they served?

thanks in advance.dan

Dan,

I dunno if they have an actual tribal law or casino policy on outside drinks or not, but I've never seen action taken on a guest for bringing them in and I've done it a lot.

They will not let you enter the casino with a drink in your hand. We've tried and they either make you drink it then or throw it away.

I'm sure there is no problem taking alcohol up to your room. I have seen people taking in coolers and cases of beer and bags with non-soda bottles in them. This is usually during the day and before the security guards are at the hotel elevators. I have never been stopped by security entering the casino at the parking garage entrance because I have a drink in my hand. But then these drinks are from Sonic, Zaxby's, or the coffee shop in the hotel lobby. But if you want a casino entrance with lower security scrunity, try walking from the Chef's Buffet to the left along the second floor hallway. There is an escalator and an elevator to the casino floor without the direct security presence. You can also continue walking on the second floor to the Rotunda and there the security scrunity is even more detached and more used to seeing people with drinks in their hands. Seems like the soft drinks are served in opaque plastic glasses.

thanks.

Well I will see once I get my sense of direction around the property.

I would think anything we bring with us to enjoy in the room will be carried in a discreet manner.

Cant imagine they have a problem with a guest bringing their own booze for in room use,especially since the suites advertise a wet bar?

No problem bringing coolers and packs of anything to the room, I have also not had any problem bringing a drink to the casino in a styrofoam cup. I will mention briefly that after having um consumed quote a few drinks in our room and on the floor and at a concert we were asked to please go back to the room for the night. Not a shining moment...but they are watching you ;)

In winter time you can slip whole bottles of liquor in in your coat and mix them in the bathrooms with the free soda that you can get at the windows......just an idea...lol
