The legendary Irish-inspired O’Sheas exemplifies a true Vegas tradition. Now located at The LINQ, its laid back atmosphere and fun games continue to attract those looking for a good time. Here, visitors will find more than fifty types of beer and table games including the ever-classic, ever-popular beer pong; you can even participate in a tournament! The outdoor bar features nightly entertainment and live performances that keep the party going day and night.
Mirage’s Rhumbar takes the best of the Caribbean islands — their drinks, their attitude, and their music — and situates it right on the Las Vegas Strip. The indoor bar is almost entirely white, save for a few lime green accents, and is lined with more bottles of rum than a pirate ship. It features a unique cocktail list and ample room to meet other vacationers. The outdoor patio — Rhumbar’s main draw — features upbeat jazz, reggae, and hip hop as well as plenty of room for you and your friends to sit down for hookah, cigars, or bottle service.
Located on the 23rd floor of the Waldorf Astoria, this chic destination offers spectacular views of the Strip through dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows. Craft cocktails are the specialty, but don’t overlook the impressive Scotch collection. Secluded and generally quiet, SkyBar is one of the best places to bring a date in CityCenter.
As the name suggests, the venue is actually a barbershop, where gentlemen can receive a haircut or a fresh shave. However, in the back is a hidden speakeasy where national acts play live and guests recline on leather furniture underneath stunning chandeliers. Enjoy craft cocktails and tableside whiskey service. Barbershop is full of swagger and character with a seductive atmosphere designed to keep the party going — and drinks flowing — well into the early morning.
Coming in at number one for the second year in a row, The Chandelier has rapidly built a reputation as Las Vegas’ premier cocktail destination. Shrouded in over two million octagonal crystals (local rumors say the handmade Chinese crystal beads alone cost close to $10 million), The Chandelier is a three-tiered bar broken into five sections, each with its own personality and its own clientele.
The first floor picks up where Vesper and Bond leave off, offering their own unique takes on classic Cosmopolitan cocktails. The middle floor — dubbed 1.5 — contains the only molecular mixology bar in Vegas, using liquid nitrogen and flame torches to create award-winning libations, elevating cocktails from a reason to come to Vegas to an art.
And while the top floor caters more toward feminine tastes — for example, they serve a thin-mint cocktail reminiscent of the best-selling Girl Scout cookie — it also offers the best opportunities to socialize and meet a classy guy or gal who may have outgrown the club scene.
