Las Vegas – Gambling, Glamour and an Olive Bar…

Las Vegas is known primarily as a fun city, and so it is. But it’s not all casinos and glitz. In North Charleston Boulevard there’s an olive bar – a place where 22 varieties of olives and olive mixes can be sampled at very reasonable prices.

American people have recently embraced the humble olive as a kind of symbol of the healthy Mediterranean diet that everyone hears so much about. And of course, red wine is also being hailed as having properties that are good for the heart. Combine the two and you have a winner – an olive bar where guests can also enjoy a drop of wine.

Olives and olive oil are native to the Mediterranean region. However, they can be found growing today in many different parts of the world. In this way their popularity is spreading far from their original Mediterranean roots. This is a good thing for the olive bars of Las Vegas, and it’s only a matter of time before we find olive bars in other parts of the country too.
