Michael Mina wants to serve you a cheeseburger with peanut butter on it

Deciding it was time for a (sea) change, Michael Mina shuttered his family-style seafoodery Seablue to open up Pub 1842, an MGM-situated gastro that was inspired by the year pilsner beer was created, and will gladly fill you with plenty of those along with other, rarer beers, classic whiskey cocktails, and some seriously comforting comfort food.

Michael Mina's Pub 1842 -- Dining Room

It's like dining in your uncle's sportcoat from the '70s! Plaid upholstered booths line the space, which is filled with vintage elements like mosaic tile floors, wood beams and paneling, and stained glass windows.

Michael Mina's Pub 1842 -- Bar

The giant bar is the centerpiece of the space and home to top shelf whiskeys and tequilas, and some-other-shelf moonshine.

Michael Mina's Pub 1842 -- Negroni

We're not sure giant spheres of ice were commonplace in barrel-aged Negronis in 1842, but they are here.

Michael Mina's Pub 1842 -- Beer

They've got 40+ beers, 24 of which they'll serve you in this 33oz beast. They've also got a 25oz Bosteels DeuS Belgian Ale that's $68, so that's probably pretty good.

Michael Mina's Pub 1842 -- Wedge Salad

This is just a wedge salad with the thickest cut of bacon ever seen by humans.

Michael Mina's Pub 1842 -- Nachos

The 1842 Nachos come piled high with chili, cheddar, sweet corn relish & pickled Fresno peppers.

Michael Mina's Pub 1842 -- Double Dog Dare

Behold this double barrel of bacon-wrapped Wagyu hot dogs topped with pico de gallo and pork rinds.

Michael Mina's Pub 1842 -- Lobster Bake

The Lobster Bake. It helps if you arrive in a similar state yourself.

Michael Mina's Pub 1842 -- Peanut Butter Crunch Burger

The Peanut Butter Crunch burger comes topped with cheddar, bacon jam, potato chips, and chunky peanut butter. Elvis has not left the building, since he couldn't fit out the door.

Michael Mina's Pub 1842 -- Cake

You even get dessert with your dessert, like this coconut cake served with a pina colada milkshake. Nicest place.
