Ride Em Cowboys at Jim Beam Wild West Bar

The Jim Beam Wild West Bar at Bally's Atlantic City couldn't have a name more fitting. And we're not just talking about the "Great American Frontier" vibe projected throughout. Things get crazy in this bar!

Perhaps the $2 selected draft beers and shots and $3 bottles all day, every day have something to do with this. That's right, 24-hour happy hour! Or maybe it's just plain fun! One of the "crown jewels" of the Jim Beam Wild West Bar is undoubtedly the mechanical bull (the first mechanical bull of Atlantic City) that was installed last summer. Seems only right since the first mechanical bull ever used for entertainment purposes has roots traced back to New Jersey; Bertrand Island Amusement Park in Lake Hopatcong to be exact.

Be sure to unleash your inner cowboy or inner cowgirl during your next trip to Bally's and try it out yourself! By the way, each ride is only $5!

After you finish taking this bull by its invisible horns, you still have several options of fun left at the Jim Beam Wild West Bar, the most popular most likely being beer pong. Beer pong is huge in Atlantic City as AC has played host to many beer pong tournaments over the past couple years (one has of course taken place at the Jim Beam Wild West Bar), but this is the only spot where you will be able to play it for kicks and on a regular basis.

The Wild West Vixens aka.... The Vixens... are another popular draw to this bar. Decorated in cowboy hats, frayed jean shorts, western style belts, half cut flannel tops and cowboy boots, these pretty ladies perform choreographed routines on top of the actual bar every Thursday between 8 p.m. and 12 a.m. as well as Fridays and Saturdays between 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Think Coyote Ugly. This is Jersey after all.

And starting in April, Jim Beam will be hosting Country Thursdays featuring local honky tonk bands such as the Brian Clayton Duo, AJ Jensen Duo, Joe Bachman Duo and Rachel Allyn Duo along with The Vixens. Your favorite DJs will also continue to drop some hot beats Friday and Saturday nights. April's DJ schedule will feature DJ Prefer and DJ Cool Jon Sprang.

The Jim Beam Wild West Bar at Bally's AC is just starting to warm up for summer! Where else can you get mechanical bull rides, snapshots in a photo booth, arcade games, beer pong, The Vixen dancers and awesome DJs for no cover charge and a casual dress code?! The Jim Beam Wild West Bar is located on the casino floor right off the boardwalk. You can't miss it! The bull starts operating at 7 p.m. Don't forget and join in on the fun!
