  • Mini Mug Tasters, a dessert sampler featuring half-portions of chocolate, peanut butter and black forest cakes served in miniature beer mugs for guests who can’t choose just one.
Beverages
A meal and a game wouldn’t be complete without an ice cold beverage to fuel energized fans. TAP’s selection of draught and bottled beers, as well as its array of beer cocktails, is sure to keep fans in positive spirits throughout the game. Offerings include:
Beer: TAP’s draught handles alternate seasonally to feature the best local and national craft brews in addition to well-known favorites. A selection of handcrafted bottled beers round out the beer menu. Highlights include:

Sports Memorabilia
If the items within the memorabilia collection hanging throughout TAP could talk, they’d have amazing stories to tell. Each was a part of an iconic sporting event that took place in Las Vegas, making each piece a source of local pride. Highlights include:
  • UFC: Hanging in an encased frame within the restaurant are the gloves and shorts worn by former Lightweight Champion Chuck Liddell during his victory against Tito Ortiz at UFC 66 at MGM Grand’s Grand Garden arena on Dec. 30, 2006.

A framed piece of the ring mat and boxing glove from this notable event will hang within the restaurant.
  • NHL Hockey: The 2012-2013 Stanley Cup Champion LA Kings make an annual pre-season visit to the Grand Garden Arena for Frozen Fury, a heated doubleheader in which the Kings take on two NHL rivals. Members of the 2012-2013 championship team signed a hockey stick that will be displayed.
