Top Cocktail Bars in Las Vegas
Whether you're headed to Las Vegas for a business deal or bachelorette party, Sin City has a lot of excitement to offer. And the bars there are designed to make guests feel comfortable. "There is no 'iconic' drink in Las Vegas," says Wynn's resident mixologist Patricia Richards. But here are the top bars to visit when in Las Vegas.
For The Business Traveller
Richards recommends the Parasol Up and Parasol Down bars at the Wynn. Food & Wine Magazine also selected Parasol Down as one of its 50 Best Bars in America, due in large part to Richards' drink list. The two-tiered bar features large inverted parasols and nightly shows projected on to the Lake of Dreams waterfall.
For the Glitzy Traveller
Elsewhere, Richards notes The Chandelier at the Cosmopolitan is "a bar that will impress," thanks to thousands of crystals artfully hung around the drinks area to glamorous effect.
For the Artsy Traveller
Patricia recommends the chilled "ice bars" like Minus 5 at the Mandalay Bay.
For the Casual Traveller
Downtown Cocktail Room
Take refuge from the cheery chorus line of slot machines on the Strip, and join the local crowd in a quieter, darker atmosphere at the Downtown Cocktail Room (best cocktail name ever: "Don't Fig With Me") or at Herbs & Rye.
Even if you're a die-hard whiskey drinker, no one will know if you indulge in the escapism of a fruity Cosmo while you're in town. After all, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
