Crown & Anchor has two locations away from the Strip, but if you’re looking for an authentic British pub, either spot is well worth the trip. The dive bar vibe is the perfect place for locals to gather to drink and socialize. Vegas is a popular destination for visitors from the United Kingdom, so if you’re looking to catch a game of soccer or rugby, then Crown & Anchor is your best bet.
Located on the top floor of the new Circa hotel, the Legacy Club has incredible 360-degree views of the Las Vegas Valley. Seating is available indoors or outside on a large patio with fire pits. Reservations are a must if you wish to score a table around sunset. The drink list is on the pricey side, but reasonable given the atmosphere. Decorations include a collection of gold bars and tributes to iconic casino operators from Vegas’ long history of gambling.
Operating on separate levels of the Wynn, Parasol Up and Parasol Down join together to form one of the best casino bars in Las Vegas. A grand, spiraling escalator separates one bar from the other with Up serving as more of a casino lounge and Down being more of an intimate cocktail rendezvous near the Lake of Dreams. The oversized umbrellas that hang from the ceiling are a nice, colorful touch.
Fans of “Vanderpump Rules” and the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” will be eager to lineup for this high-energy lounge at Casesars Palace. The venture by TV personality and restaurateur Lisa Vanderpump is vibrant and fun with chic decor and a stylish front patio courtyard. The food is colorful and the drinks skew on the sweeter side, making Vanderpump Cocktail Garden a must-visit during any girls trip to Vegas. If stiff libations aren’t your thing, try a glass of the signature rose. Heck, try a bottle.
Gold Spike in Downtown Vegas — just north of Fremont Street – has a Midwestern college town vibe. A fresh change of pace from the Strip, the venue has an indoor area (where DJs perform on weekends) and a large backyard for fire pits, beer pong and live bands.
