Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer is coming to the Venetian

There’s a new gladiator ready for the Vegas burger battle.

There’s a reason there are so many burger joints on the Las Vegas Strip: The world can’t get enough of this classic experience. We’re talking juicy burgers carefully crafted with creative toppings, a side of something crispy-fried and a thick and creamy milkshake—possibly spiked with a little extra fun.

There’s a new experience coming to the Venetian, taking over the indoor-outdoor space next to the poker room and offering canal-adjacent patio seating (previously home to B&B Burger). Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer, which originated in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood, is expanding beyond the Big Apple for the first time, and there couldn’t be a better place for it than Vegas. The “classic luncheonette” offers burgers, fries, wings, craft beers, mason jar cocktails, salads, sides and its infamous Crazy Shakes, all of which have been satisfying New York tourists and locals for years. Sound familiar?

Wait until you get a taste. We’re especially looking forward to the Greg Norman burger, a Wagyu beef patty with buttermilk-dill dressing, blue cheese and arugula. The Steak Au Poivre burger with green peppercorn sauce should fit right in on the Strip, and Black Tap’s crispy chicken sandwich—saturated with Korean barbecue sauce, buttermilk coleslaw, fresh lime and spicy mayo—sounds like its ready to challenge for a best-sandwich title. The wings are done Korean-style, too, perfect with a side of onion rings.

Black Tap is expected to open its doors at the Venetian in early winter. Let the burger battle continue!
