An ode to all things Blue Moon makes its debut on the Strip. The new Blue Moon Bar at Planet Hollywood Resort sits right in front of the Zappos Theater, where Gwen Stefani debuted her new resident show on Wednesday night, and Jennifer Lopez, the Backstreet Boys, Lionel Richie, and Florida Georgia Line perform their own shows.
The star of this bar is Blue Moon’s flagship beer, Blue Moon Belgian White, originally created in 1995 when the brewery’s brewmaster wanted to create a classic Belgian wheat beer. Valencia orange peel and a touch of coriander give Blue Moon its flavor. Fun fact: originally, Blue Moon was called Bellyslide, and earned its name after someone commented, “You know, a beer that tastes this good comes around only once in a blue moon.”
Seasonal beer-based cocktails also make an appearance all with names that bounce off that moon name — the Island Moon, Summer Moon, and Whiskey Moon.
The bar and lounge features video poker machines and televisions for all the big games.
The Zappos Theater sits in the middle of the Miracle Mile Shops.
