Proof Tavern Celebrates Grand Opening at MonteLago Village at the Lake Las Vegas Community

Proof Tavern, the newest gaming and dining establishment in the Lake Las Vegas community, celebrated its recent launch in MonteLago Village with a grand opening celebration featuring a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Henderson Chamber of Commerce and a certificate presentation by Henderson City Councilwoman Gerri Schroeder on Thursday, April 20, 2017.

The Lake Las Vegas master planned community is a premier residential, golf and resort destination situated on a privately owned 320-acre lake that features 10 miles of shoreline. Within the 3,592-acre community are a range of residential offerings, two challenging golf courses, and two world-class hotels.

Proof Tavern will provide patrons 21 and over with a diverse array of menu items ranging from American comfort foods to classic favorites with a modern twist, a full service bar including specialty craft cocktails, wine and spirits and gaming.

Founded by UNLV MBA alum and former Golden Entertainment executive Sam Tibolt, Proof Tavern will be the only gaming establishment within the Lake Las Vegas community, offering 15 video poker machines for patrons to enjoy. The tavern will host various gaming promotions and offers throughout the year.

“I am happy to be part of the Lake Las Vegas community and MonteLago Village,” said Tibolt, owner of Proof Tavern. “It’s an exciting area that is expanding with new attractions, dining and entertainment offerings for residents and visitors to enjoy,” he continued, “and I am pleased that Proof Tavern will bring back gaming as an amenity that Lake Las Vegas has been without for quite a while.”

With 6,440 square feet of space, Proof Tavern provides guests the options of bar, dining room or patio seating, and the establishment has a second floor and bar available for private events with a variety of food and beverage packages for up to 30 people.
