Mark Wahlberg taking his shots to downtown Las Vegas

Updated May 25, 2023 - 4:20 pm

Las Vegas’s favorite flair bartender is back at it Saturday at Circa.

Mark Wahlberg is serving shots of his Flecha Azul Tequila at Circa Bar, outside the hotel and facing the Golden Gate. Wahlberg will take over the bar in a property-wide takeover for his booze brand, from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m.

He’ll pour “while supplies last,” according to a company announcement. This is the standing policy at any bar, actually.

Derek Stevens is co-owner of both properties. The resort exec sat with Wahlberg — along with The D Las Vegas Casino Host Richard Wilk and Stevens’ wife, Nicole StevensSunday at the Golden Knights-Stars NHL Western Conference Final playoff game.

Wahlberg has forged a relationship with Stevens through multiple personal appearances at Circa. Most recently, the actor joined the Greg Maddux Baller Dream Celebrity Poker tournament on May 1. Wahlberg has also appeared this month in events promoting Flecha Azul at On The Border Mexican Grille & Cantina in Centennial Hills, and Cathédrale at Aria.
