The Best Bars in Las Vegas

Here are six beautifully aesthetic bars that you should hit up for an elevated experience in Sin City. I like to go to bars that will look pretty in my Instagram pictures and have interesting cocktails. I want  atmosphere and a wow factor. When I travel I always create a bucketlist of drinks and meals I have to have. In Vegas if you can't finish your drink at a bar, you can ask for it to go and they will transfer it to a plastic cup! lol If you want to drink your way through Vegas with some incredible cocktails, here's your list of where to go!

1. The Chandelier Bar

A three-story purple chandelier shines at the center of this gorgeous, multi-level bar inside the Cosmopolitan hotel. You’ll be surrounded by sparkle and dazzled by amazing cocktails! The three floors are each a separate bar with the middle floor being my favorite. The menu is different on each level. This bar is elegant and ritzy and gives the feel that its floating in air. Its menu has unique and creative cocktails. They are famous for their Secret Drink, which I didn't try, it's a lemon verbena and ginger-infused margarita that comes with an edible flower. The flower is supposed to change the flavor of your drink in your mouth. I had to get drinks in fancy glasses since I was sitting  inside a massive chandelier. The Chandelier bar is one glamorous place to hang out, but they don't play any music. 

2. Vanderpump Cocktail Garden

Just as you would picture, Vanderpump was like stepping into a flowery fairy tale garden oasis. It is owned by Bravo star Lisa Vanderpump, and located in Caesar’s Palace near the Forum Shops. They have a great selection of hand-crafted cocktails and lite bites. Go to her second location in the Paris hotel to have an expanded food menu and all the fanciest pink cocktails.

3. Skyfall Lounge

Skyfall Lounge is located in the Delano hotel on the 64th floor. I made a reservation for sunset so I could see the city all lit up! The lounge has an amazing view but unfortunately, the outside patio was reserved so you can only stand outside.  Skyfall lounge probably has the best view of Vegas! The bathroom has a floor to ceiling window so that's super unique so sit on the toilet and admire the view. This is a must do when you come to Vegas to enjoy the lights from up top.


4. Easy's a speakeasy located in the Aria. Once inside, you're transported to a dimly lit, intimate space filled with vintage furnishings and live music, making you feel like you've stepped back in time to the Prohibition era. Reservations are required with drink minimums if you want to sit down. 

5. Minus 5 Ice Bar

They have three locations in Las Vegas and I went to one 14 years ago so I didn't need to go again. It transports you to a frosty wonderland. Cost is $24-75 depending on whether or not you want a parka or faux fur coat included and drink tickets. All the furniture is made of ice and there's  ice sculptures all about along with upbeat music and a flashy LED light show.  I think it really is one of those things that you just need to go and experience for yourself for a one-of-a-kind experience.

6. Carousel Bar

If you're on Fremont street in downtown Las Vegas, then check out the new Carousel Bar outdoors.

My drink came with an edible $100 bill 

Honorable mention to O'Shea's Irish Pub which makes a frozen Bailey's milkshake. Located in the Linq promenade, you have to get one! They also have a pumpkin bailey milkshake for the season. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas including calories! 


I also made a list for myself of all the places I need to go on my next trip that looked interesting:

Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails

I walked by this barber shop in the Cosmopolitan Hotel and there was a long line outside this 1920s-inspired barbershop to enter the speakeasy. See inside is a janitor’s closet, you give a password and are granted entry. The pictures show a large, dark space with classy Prohibition-era décor and chandeliers on the ceiling. There are  limited seats at the bar and the rest of the seats are for table service/reservations. There's a live band and karaoke. I think it looks like a cool spot to check out.


Chica located in the Venetian 

I went to this Latin restaurant  for brunch and they had a DJ spinning hip-hop, afro beats and latin music in the dim restaurant. The cocktail menu is innovative. At night it turns into a club and I would love to come back to experience Chica Nights. They have another location in Miami.


I went to GhostBar at the Palms 14 years ago, it closed for awhile then reopened last year. It's on the 55th floor and  has an amazing view of the strip on its outdoor deck and has  floor-to-ceiling windows.  takes you 55 stories over the Las Vegas Valley.  This place is such a hidden gem 

I walked through here at the Wynn and thought this would be a great spot to watch the hourly show they put on at their lake.  


On the 23rd floor of the Waldorf Astoria, this bar has incredible views of the Strip. It seems to have a quite the classy vibe with a lounge atmosphere with lots of seating.  Mocktails are also available. 

A dinner across from Resorts World, it's a Vegas icon and staple since it's been around so long and featured in many movies and TV shows. It's also a bar and has great happy hour specials. 

At New York, NY next to Hershey's World. The drinks are made fresh, not from syrups so this is the spot if you like sweet cocktails! You can get a chocolate caramel martini, a reese's peanut butter cup martini, a peppermint patty martini, a chocolate coconut martini or a Jolly-Tini which is vodka infused with jolly ranchers. 


Located at the far end of the strip in Resorts world. When I went in the early evening it's just a lobby bar, its only has a club scene on weekend late nights. When I was there at 8:30pm on a Monday it was sparsely packed with people either sitting at the bar or on couches enjoying a chill vibe with the amazing décor. They have innovative cocktails like the Green Light made with green Chartreuse and Midori melon liqueur. Also the Electric Porn Martini is trending right now as passion fruit cocktails are all the rage. The "secret menu" has this champagne cocktail that is poured in a little bathtub, they top it off with flowers and a rubber duckie but it's $75! I think I might buy the glass on amazon. lol
