If you can get past the door, this bar boasts a sleek and comfortable design, set in reds and blacks, and augmented by dense house music. They offer a fantastic selection of classic and experimental concoctions. The Downtown Cocktail Room wouldn't be out of place in one of the Strip's upscale hotels with kind of a European style ultra-lounge vibe. However, its position on the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street brings a new sense of hip to the area, attracting locals rather than budget tourists.
Located on the 23rd floor of the sultry and serene Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, this bar is the perfect spot for a relaxing and intimate evening with that special someone.

The decor consists of a collection of spice tones, reflective surfaces and fine fabrics that glimmer in the dimly lit room.

The Velveteen Rabbit is stylishly decorated with funky wallpapers, antique-looking chairs, and exposed light bulbs hanging from the ceiling, providing dim lighting.

They serve beautifully presented cocktails and also have a good selection of beer on tap.
An island escape exists just a few blocks west of the Las Vegas strip. Frankie's Tiki Room offers a menu of original rum drinks and is decked out in beautiful tiki carvings.

The Chandelier is an opulent bar located in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The centerpiece here is an enormous chandelier structure made from two-million crystal beads.

Most restaurants or bars tend to be strong in either the cocktails or cuisine category, it's a rare gem when you find an establishment that is equally amazing at both. Herbs and Rye is one of those very gems in the glittering city of Las Vegas. Their artisanal cocktails are not just an afterthought, and neither is the exquisite farm to table food. Small plates and decadent dishes feature fresh ingredients that have been married together to create fantastic flavor profiles, from their pork chop and figs with gorgonzola and a demi-glaze, to the beef tartar with just the right amount of capers and dijon mustard. Cocktails are handcrafted with care by expert mixologists that pull tried and true recipes from both the Golden and Gothic Age to feature stellar choices like the Pimms Cup or a Negroni.
A part of the famous Fremont Street of Las Vegas, Vanguard Lounge completely fits in with its suave neighboring clubs and casinos. Rather than putting up a menu of common cocktails, Vanguard prefers to have a choice list of special cocktails and wine. The bartenders mixing up drinks in style is quite an entertaining act in itself; it has a patio too, where one can enjoy people watching, the most loved-activity in Las Vegas. Vanguard Lounge also features live entertainment on a regular basis and you can hire this classy lounge for an intimate gathering or a lavish party too.
The patio at Rhumbar is a definite draw. It's expansive and offers plenty of comfy seating with the towering buildings of The Strip providing a beautiful backdrop.

While you're lounging on the luxurious patio, you can also smoke hookah.
Split into two levels, this bar at the Wynn Las Vegas is great to visit any time of day.

The space is decorated with parasols: they hang from the ceiling, come up from the tables, and are found everywhere in the space. The atmosphere is lively, with plenty of natural light coming in from huge windows.
Commonwealth is an enigma of modern luxury and classic Prohibition-era speakeasy elegance. The walls boast black-and-white photographs and works of art to enhance the upscale atmosphere.

This restaurant at Mandalay Bay features the decor and cuisine from Soviet-era Russia. Actually, many of the dishes are a fusion of American-Russian dishes. For instance, you can still order Beef Stroganoff and Chicken Kiev, but you can also have your Filet Mignon and pizza. The kitchen also has an impressive selection of caviar in traditional style with toast points or blinis and available in one-ounce increments. To accompany your meal, try one of their huge selection of vodkas from around the world, including-of course-Russia.
