Having a Drink in Las Vegas

Where To Get A Good Drink In Las Vegas

In Las Vegas all you need is a drink, some good conversation and you have the perfect way to start an evening. Each of these places is fairly casual if you just want to have a single drink and then move on. Delmonico's will tempt you to sit around and have a meal and Vice Versa has a lot of small plates on their menu that require a look. Go ahead have another Scorpion at the Peppermill or think about tantalizing your taste buds with a Verbena at Chandelier.

    The outdoor lounge at Vdara Spa and Hotel should be your place for a drink but indoors works just fine. Vice Versa is all about choices between good and evil. Which will you be? This lounge serves as an excellent meeting place for a pre-show or dinner drink. It is walking distance from Bellagio,  Aria, and Cosmopolitan.

    You can ask for their "flower drink" at Chandelier drink by why not just learn the real name of the cocktail that you have probably heard about time and time again.

    Simply find a seat on the patio and enjoy the sun while you sip on a cocktail and listen to the waterfall. It never feels like Las Vegas and it always begs for more than one drink. When the sun goes down the show starts and you'll have a front-row seat for the free entertainment.

    If it is edible I think they can make it. Infused alcohol and plenty of imagination are why you should choose to have a drink at Fusion at Palazzo Las Vegas. Rumor has it that this great casino bar is going to close, for now, it is still open, so make sure to get a drink, fast!

    If you can only visit one bar in Las Vegas do not waste your time in a Casino that has been taken over by corporate America. At the Peppermill the evening gown clad servers will transport you to an era when being cool had absolutely nothing to do with baggy pants and caps worn sideways. Order a Scorpion, the signature drink, and sit back in the deep booths. Vegas Baby!

    Red Square can become one of your favorite places in Las Vegas. It is the atmosphere, the drinks, the patrons and the ice bar. Red Square draws you in with its decor and vibe and keeps you with its Vodka and friendly staff. The ice bar is the place for a cocktail but have a seat in the restaurant and you'll eat and drink. That cold room in the corner is perfect for sampling the good stuff that they have on the menu.

    Have a beer at an Irish bar in New York. What else would you expect from Las Vegas? The Irish lager, the Red Ale and a Guinness, of course. Three beers and a big hearty bowl of Irish Stew will get you going for the evening. Find a seat on the patio for the outdoor experience or listen to the live music inside if you feel like dancing. ​

    Go ahead and order the huge margarita and do not even ask for the second straw. That is one big drink and you might need a little help walking after the "Big Mama." Chips, salsa, ceviche and plenty of action can be found on the back patio.
