There are no shortages of bars in Las Vegas so how do you pick and choose where you’ll sit down and dissolve into your Vegas mindset with your drink of choice?  Easy, you don’t make a quick decision, you research. You drink. You sample. You taste. Only then, after a visit to a few fine establishments do you consider one spot to do your serious drinking.

After all, your cocktails, beers and bourbon shots demand that you not take them lightly. In fact, you should probably have more than one drink at each place you stop in to, once again, remember, this is Las Vegas it demands your “A” game.  

Dissolving into a large leather couch should be part of your Las Vegas vacation but if you really want to validate your intent on finding relaxation and hedonism you need to find that seat at Montecristo Cigar Bar at Caesars Palace. With an expansive bourbon selection and humidor holding some of the best cigars available in Las Vegas, you are bound to submerge yourself into a Vegas mindset quite quick.  The main room up front has the giant screens for the guys who need to utilize sports for relaxation but the back rooms are classy, virtually smoke-free and perfect for a date night rendezvous. Oh, and the bourbon selection is ideal for anyone who really has a love affair with the brown water.

Beers With a View at Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas

Beer Sampling at Beer Park Las Vegas
Zeke Quezada

 With a view of the Fountains of Bellagio and the Las Vegas strip, this outdoor beer garden is a destination worthy of more than a single visit. They have over 100 beers to choose from as well as a menu that includes more than your typical bar food favorites. There is a smoker on the premises and that thing is pumping out pulled pork, brisket, and sausages. If you include the bar games around the joint and the televisions for watching games you realize that you might need more than just a couple of hours to figure out if this is your new go-to spot for cocktails.
