When you hop off the plane in Las Vegas you start thinking about your first drink on the strip. Yes, I know that you had about five of those little bottles of bourbon on the flight but the first drink you have when you reach the resort can set the tone for the rest of your vacation. When you step into Caesars Palace Las Vegas you have so many options that you might be a little confused but have no fear, I have gone to the trouble of sampling cocktails at all the spots at Caesars Palace to help you with your drink decision making.
The 14 Places to have a drink at Caesars Place Las Vegas:
Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill – Grab a couple of mini-burgers and a beer at the bar. Their pub menu is worth a long read. While I always have an Innis & Gunn you can have a cocktail let’s say a God Save The Queen or The Mule’s Hind Leg
Casa Fuente inside the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace – A cigar and a mojito for me please! Even if you don’t smoke this is a good spot for a drink and a little south Florida flavor.
Old Homestead Steakhouse – Steak as a snack and big bold red wine. Maybe not a full steak but you could try the thick cut bacon with a beer at the bar or just sit and ponder life with an over-sized glass of red wine.
Rao’s – Meatball and Chianti. Really, do you need anything else? This bar gets lively in the early evening and a glass of wine here with a meatball is a crime.
Guy Savoy – Cognac. Step up to the bar and chat up the bartender. Your drink will be paired with your mood. You can do a full tasting or you can just sit there and sip. This is fine dining so don’t just go in for shots and simple mingling, go in for the experience.
Cleopatra’s Barge – If you need a little music with your cocktail this is the spot. Late nights get happy with the convention crowd letting loose as if they were in a nightclub. Live entertainment regularly and the casual atmosphere is perfect for an after dinner drink with a side of socializing.
Nobu – Go into the lounge and this is the definition of a sexy lounge. The drinks feel sexy. The small plates feel sexy. In fact after a drink or two you’ll melt into your seat a little more and you’ll carry yourself with a bit of a sexy edge.
Numb Bar and Frozen Cocktails- You ever see those people walking around the strip with those crazy frozen drinks that scream photo op? This is one of those places. Listen, I won’t judge you, go ahead and walk the street with a slushy.
Spanish Steps – Frozen drinks and beers outside in front of Caesars Palace. If it is a hot day and you have decided to walk around in the midday heat this is where you get hydrated. If they had a DJ there would be girls dancing in bikinis here. They don’t have a DJ so you’ll see a lot of tourists slurping slushy drinks. Good or bad, they do cool you off when the sun is at its peak.
The Cocktail by The Pool – The best way to experience Caesars Palace is with an oversized drink by the swimming pool in the Garden of the Gods pool complex. The best part about this route to have a drink in Las Vegas is that you’ll order two, you’ll make new friends and before you know it the entire day is gone and you have not lost any money on the blackjack tables. DO NOT forget the sunscreen!
