There are important questions that people must answer as they go through this life. “What was I put on this planet to accomplish?” “Is all you really need love?” “Does there really need to be a “Will & Grace” reboot?” And, of course, “Which statue throughout the Caesars Empire should I take a selfie with?”
What you might not realize is which statue you are seen with on social media says a lot about who you are, what you represent and what your Vegas trip is all about. Therefore, we offer you this helpful guide on which statue to get your selfie game on with. But, sorry, we still can’t answer that “Will & Grace” thing.
Walk down the main corridor of Harrah’s Las Vegas and you’ll eventually end up face to face with Buck and Winnie Greenback. They are gaudy. They are flashy. Some might say they are a sight for sore eyes. We like to think of them more as “trailer park fabulous.” As you look at them, it might be easy to assume they won all this money on their Vegas vacation. And maybe they did. But then again, maybe they have the swankest double-wide in the entire trailer park. Maybe all that cash is what they rolled into town with. The thing is, win or lose, The Greenbacks don’t care. They are going to have the best time in Vegas no matter what the results. And that dog – let’s call her Fifi – she’ll be eating doggy caviar tonight.
Pose with The Greenbacks and you are probably the person who parties so hard you stumble back to your hotel room with your shoes in hand. It’s more important for your bare feet to be comfortable in the moment than anything else. You can always get a shot of antibiotics to fix whatever you got later.
As you enter the Paris Las Vegas from the self-parking garage, you are met by a statue of a man sweeping. The name of the statue is “Aftermath” and the man is likely sweeping up the leftovers of craziness from the night before. Is he sweeping up tears from fights between lovers? Is he sweeping up some of those lovely cards that people on Las Vegas Boulevard hand out to passersby? Is he sweeping up wristbands that got you into the VIP section of the club? Probably all of the above and then some. The gentleman is clearly a hard worker, which makes it all the more odd that he would be wearing a long sleeved jacket. It’s hot in Vegas. But whatever – you do you, sweeper!
Pose with Aftermath and we hope you give the sweeper a kiss on the head. He represents the unsung heroes in Las Vegas – the people behind the scenes who work so hard so you can have all the fun. In fact, you should buy him a new jacket.
This is the most iconic of all Las Vegas statues. Michael Connie made molds of the real dancers to put it altogether. The motto, “No ‘IFs’ ‘ANDs’ OR…” is the perfect amount of naughty for Sin City. It’s a nod to the current (Crazy Girls) and past (Riviera Hotel) glories of Las Vegas. Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino took this piece of Vegas lore and houses it on the casino floor now bridging the past to the present.
So what does it mean if you take a selfie with The Crazy Girls Sculpture? Maybe it means that you are a history buff. Or, at least, you’re a fan of the buff in general.
These monster birds stand at the entrance way to the Flamingo Las Vegas on The LINQ Promenade. They are imposing and gigantic and pink. And if they ever came to life, we’d all be running with the fear of death in our eyes. They already have a foot in the air, so it would be even easier for them to squash you with their giant, webbed feet if they were nasty birds. But we digress. As it is, they have not been reanimated and are therefore a delight to see. There’s something that just screams Americana about flamingos and oversized statues. This is the best of both worlds.
A selfie here means you should be multi-tasking. Hold the phone and take the picture with one hand. Hold sparklers in the other hand. America!
The champ looks ferocious near the sportsbook at Caesars Palace. He is carved from Carrara marble. It is a magnificent stone, good enough for Michelangelo to use for his “Pieta” and fitting for one of, if not the, greatest fighters of all-time.
There was a time when Louis was broke and seemingly with no way to get his life back on track. That’s when Las Vegas came to his rescue. He spent the remainder of his years as a casino host for Caesars, shaking hands of adoring fans and at least getting some of the reverence he earned over the years.
Snap a shot with “The Brown Bomber” and let the world know, no matter how many times you get knocked down, you’re going to get back up.
Take a stroll through Appian Way in Caesars Palace and there he is in all his glory. It’s an exact replica of Michelangelo’s “David” made from the same Carrara marble. He stands 18 feet tall and weighs more than 9 tons. It is a testament to Las Vegas and its impenetrable spirit. We might not have the original but we have an EXACT replica. We can do things your way or we can do them our own way. That’s Vegas.
Take a pic under this nude behemoth let the world know: You’re ready to let your freak flag fly… in a cultural way, of course.
Shooting toward the sky from the bow of The Barge bearing her name, this swooping statue shows Cleopatra as if she were launching herself into the sky. Can she fly? We’ll never know, will we? The empress is fashionable and topless, clearly an early advocate for “Free the Nipple.” Her progressive stances on social issues are still being argued today. But no matter where you stand on the social spectrum, one thing people both conservative and liberal can agree on is this: If Cleopatra were alive today, she’d be a huge social media star. Then maybe we wouldn’t have to keep up so much with the Kardashians. We can dream…
Keep your selfie game strong with Cleopatra and let’s all take down the Kardashian invasion together.
Studded throughout his namesake Palace, statues of Caesar await your visit. Being a kind and benevolent ruler, he is there to help you come up with your own answers to life’s questions. “What was I put on this planet to accomplish?” Caesar isn’t sure, but he ruled an entire empire so don’t sweat the small stuff. “Is love really all you need?” Maybe not but it sure helps. As for that “Will & Grace” redux, he gives it two seasons – max, or as he says, “II seasons. Maximus.”
Seafood might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about dining in Las Vegas. The city is in the middle of a big desert after all. Despite being surrounded by sand, you can find plenty of things fresh from the sea including all-you-can eat crab legs, fresh sushi and lobster at restaurants all over town.
Here’s where you can satisfy your seafood cravings in Vegas.
Sushi is good. Burritos are good. Why not combine the two? That’s exactly what Jaburritos does.
Start out by choosing a protein. The seafood options include things like spicy tuna, shrimp tempura, surimi crab, soft shell crab, salmon, yellowtail and more. Next, add sauces and other toppings like cucumber, Romaine lettuce, wonton strips, pico de gallo, eel sauce and mango teriyaki sauce. Wrap it all in seaweed soy paper or a tortilla and enjoy.
Watching those carbs? You can also get your favorites in a bowl.
The menu is divided into cold and cooked dishes. Cold options include oysters, uni, ceviche, sashimi and more. Cooked dishes include Maine lobster, squid pasta, sea bass, Tasmanian ocean trout and the signature Nobu dish, black cod with sweet miso, which is served in a bite size piece over garlic chips and ginger in a butter lettuce cup.
You can’t leave Nobu Restaurant without trying the sushi. Sushi and sashimi choices include abalone, fluke, Japanese red snapper, mackerel, octopus, snow crab and more. There are also sushi rolls. We like the yellowtail and jalapeno, the toro and scallion or the eel and cucumber.
Bacchanal Buffet is known for its amazing selection of hundreds of dishes and when it comes to seafood, it definitely doesn’t disappoint.
Dishes may vary depending on the time of day, but you’ll find a sushi station and items like king crab legs, lobster Benedict, oysters, mussels, shrimp, scallops, tuna poke, crawfish and prawns.
If you’re an oyster fan, you’ll definitely want to stop into Oyster Bar at Harrah’s Las Vegas. You can get your oysters any way you want. We’re talking oysters on the half shell, fried oysters, grilled oysters, oysters topped with pico de gallo and oyster shooters.
Seafood lovers will also enjoy the rest of the menu at Oyster Bar, which includes shrimp, lobster, crab, clam chowder, fish and shrimp tacos, crab cakes, blackened Cajun scallops, cioppino and a popular seafood risotto.
Hungry and want some all-you-can-eat seafood? The Carnival World & Seafood Buffet can help you out. For a $20 upgrade charge during dinner you can indulge in the buffet’s freshly imported catches from around the world.
Get your fill of more than 70 seafood items including fresh shucked oysters, snow crab legs, shrimp, sushi, salmon and specialty items like seafood enchiladas.
Trust us, Gordon Ramsay knows how to make some good fish and chips. Try them at Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips at The LINQ Promenade.
The hand-cut cod filets are flown in fresh daily, battered and cooked to order. You can also choose from shrimp, chicken or sausage. Then choose your chips. You can either get them natural with sea salt or “dirty” with toppings like truffle and Parmesan or jalapenos and crisp chorizo.
Choose from sauces like curry and mango, artisanal ketchup, Gordon’s tartar sauce and Sriracha aioli. Grab a beer and polish everything off with a sticky toffee pudding or Biscoff milkshake.
If it’s a local favorite, you know it’s got to be good. KJ Dim Sum & Seafood gives seafood lovers a lot to choose from. Items include shrimp, lobster, crab and clam dishes.
The restaurant is famous for its dim sum. The customary tableside cart will be rolled up and you can make your selections from small dishes like scallops, dumplings, shrimp balls and more. You can also order traditional Chinese cuisine from the regular menu. Enjoy dishes like salt and pepper shrimp.
Everyone knows the best lobsters are from Maine so you’ll want to get your lobster at Lobster ME. Lobster rolls are a favorite way to consume this deep sea delicacy. Lobster rolls here are served in traditional Maine style. You can also get shrimp and crab rolls.
If you prefer your lobster in another form, how about lobster mac and cheese? Or a lobsicle? It’s battered and deep fried lobster on a stick. Grab one and go!
Other seafood dishes include a fish fry sandwich, shrimp cocktail and fried clam chowder with spicy Buffalo sauce.

The worst part of happy hour is right there in the name. It’s usually only an hour (maybe two). Who wants a happy hour when you could have a happy day? At Caesars Palace Las Vegas, guests can currently do 10 straight hours of happiness.
The genius here is that Caesars is combining its vast resources to create this elongated happy hour express. It’s like a pub crawl of happy hours involving six of the best restaurants and bars in the hotel. That means a variety of food and drink options, plus new friends and environments at each stop. Here’s how to do it like a champ.
The largest bar in Caesars Palace is in an open space and perfect for people watching. If you’d rather make things a little more private, there are booths which have personal televisions in them. The main area features eight HD televisions and 18 video poker machines. During happy hour there are specials on draft and bottled beers. The real steal is with the crafted cocktails – anything $18 or less is two-for-one during this time. Enjoy a classic, spicy Bloody Mary featuring Tito’s Handmade vodka, house-made Bloody Mary mix and hand-stuffed blue cheese olives while your mate gets tropical with a Black Barrel Mojito which contains Mount Gay Black Barrel rum, mint, fresh-squeezed lime sour and is topped with soda. There are 10 cocktails to choose from.
If anybody should be able to do happy hour right, it’s a classic pub. Known as the “Hell’s Kitchen Happy Hour,” the folks at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill offer a large amount of drink specials including 35 oz. Bulldog style beers for $16 and draft beers starting at $9. Whatever you get to drink, make sure to take advantage of the awesome happy hour food menu which features some of Ramsay’s best bar bites on the cheap. Five dollars will get you a choice of warm salty pretzels, Pub Spot (Ramsay’s take on sliders), crispy onion rings or truffle fries. For $7, you can grab a half order of chile-beer glazed Hellfire wings, mini corn dogs or the epic kettle chip nachos – crispy potato chips topped with corn beef, sour cream, short rib and English cheddar cheese sauce. It’s a big a bang of flavor for your buck.
The swank, old school setting of Rao’s is perfect for a glass of red or white wine, which won’t cost you more than $10. Beer specials run for $6. Specialty drinks which include mango mimosas, apple mojitos, and the All in the Family – Absolut Citron Vodka, Lemoncello, fresh lemon and club soda – can be had for $12. And a pitcher of The New Yorker, which contains Skyy Infusion Moscato Grape Vodka, St-Germain Liqueur, fresh basil and lemon, will run your group $35.
Share some excellent bar bites including a killer fig, prosciutto & buratta salad ($10), a classic fried ravioli plate ($9) and Rao’s traditional meatball sandwich ($15) and you’ll be singing “That’s Amore” in no time.
Take in a stunning view above the Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis and enjoy half price drinks and MR CHOW bites. The cocktail menu showcases tasty beverages such as The Tribeca, a refreshing glass full of fresh peach and pineapple, all topped with Moet and Chandon champagne. There’s also the Pineapple 100 with Ciroc Pineapple Vodka, Grand Marnier 10, pineapple juice and fresh lemon. These are just two of the nine choices you can imbibe as you raise your glass to happiness.
MR CHOW bites start at $5 and feature some of the restaurant’s greatest hits: mini chicken satay, prawn toast, glazed prawns with walnuts, minced beef pancakes, shrimp rolls and mini MR CHOW spare ribs are all on the menu. This is a happy hour full of treasures.
Are you ready to step into the man cave? This stunning cigar bar is actually a pleasure for members of both sexes, a one-of-a-kind environment with 100 seats and four clearly different areas – the Signature Bar, The Library, The Courtyard and The Vault Room. Wherever you choose to sit, you can expect a comfy seat, perfect for puffing on a fine cigar and watching whatever big game is on any number of the television screens. During happy hour, indulge in 2-for-1 specials on cocktails including the Ginger Julep and Liquid Silk Martini. The bar, which is known for its fine whiskey collection, also goes 2-for-1 on a selection of these stunning spirits.
At this superb steakhouse, it’s not just the meat that deserves your focus. Oysters, as we all know, are… mood enhancers. Here, it’s oyster happy hour all day. Literally from the time the restaurant opens to the time it closes, oyster specials are in effect. Malpeque, St. Simon, Shigoku, Kusshi and Fanny Bay are the specialties of the house. Choose a half dozen – two types – for $16. Or go for the full 12 ($30) and double the amount of types you can select. Maybe you want to step it up with an oyster shooter ($10) Bloody Mary style. There’s fried oysters ($20), 5-Way oysters ($20) which are left to the whim of the chef, a vintage Oysters Rockefeller ($20) utilizing 5 oysters topped with smoked bacon, Pernod absinthe and Béarnaise sauce.

Calling all Vegas veterans; Just how well do you know your way around the Las Vegas Strip? Let’s see if you can guess where these are within Caesars Entertainment’s Las Vegas hotels. Take your time — they’re tricky. And when you’re done, take a peek at our answer key at the bottom and see how you did. Good luck!
*Cue drum roll*
So, how do you think you did? Did we stump you? Let’s find out:
1. Bally’s Las Vegas entrance: The perks of walking along the Las Vegas Strip is you can catch cool structures like this. Take the escalators up from the Grand Bazaar Shops, and this is the walkway past Giordano’s and Redneck Riviera.
2. LINQ Fountain, The LINQ Promenade: We’re sure you’ve seen some really nice fountains in Vegas, but we like this one in particular because it lights up. Catch it when you grab a slice at Flour & Barley or a cupcake at Sprinkles.
3. Poodle statue at Paris Las Vegas: He may be ceramic but we’re certain this pooch would still love our pet-friendly Vegas hotel rooms. The adorable statue is located outside of the gift shop, just before the hotel lobby.
4: Bench at The Forum Shops inside Caesars Palace: If you take shop ’til you drop seriously, these chairs make for great pictures. And it’s like he’s staring into your soul.
5. Ceiling at Paris Las Vegas: No, you’re not in France. But hey, Paris in the middle of the Strip makes it that much cooler. Modeled after Paris’ Galeries Lafayette, you’ll find this in the shopping area between Paris Las Vegas and Bally’s Las Vegas, just outside Burger Brasserie.
6. High Roller wheel at the LINQ Promenade: This is one spoke-tacular shot and by far, one of our favorites. If you haven’t had a chance to ride the 550-foot-tall observation wheel yet, you’re in for a treat. (We like going right at sunset; plus it’s way cool to see all the Strip lights come on.) If you happen to be walking down the promenade, you can take this time to capture a creative shot like this.
7. eatwell at The Cromwell: Tricked ya! Just when you thought we forgot to crop out the Drai’s Nightclub logo, we just wanted to throw you off. While you’re here picking up a coffee or a snack at eatwell, look up at the ceiling and snap a photo. We’re sure you’ll stump everybody with this one.
8. Le Central at Paris Las Vegas. Ooh la la, would you look at these? We say this charming Vegas bar is the perfect place to go for a date. The chandeliers at Le Central are simply marvelous.
9. Disco ball at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino: Located inside the casino just above the escalator, this disco ball is the center of the party. It’s only steps away from all the hot headlining acts like Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys and J.Lo at The AXIS. And if you’re itching to get your groove on right by this disco ball, no one’s judging you. We’ll bet you won’t be the only one.
10. Beer wall at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace: Grab a brewski and nibble on your favorite pub bites at this popular celebrity chef-owned bar and restaurant. If you do dine here, maybe (just maybe) you can trick Gordon Ramsay on his Twitter page by pretending you made the dish!
Bonus – Any floor level at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino: Staying at Planet Hollywood? You can take this artsy photo as well: As soon as you leave the hotel elevator at any level, all you gotta do is look down and snap.
Bonus after the bonus – Casino chandelier at Harrah’s Las Vegas: It pays to look up when you’re strolling through this center-Strip casino. Just make sure you don’t run into anyone when snapping the photo. This bustling casino gets really busy!

Las Vegas is the land of 24-hour restaurants, blackjack on every street corner and the ubiquitous novelty drink containers.

Walk up and down the Strip and you’ll find drinks served in everything from a zebra hoof to a bull to an Eiffel Tower. They make the perfect souvenir. Imagine sitting at your desk sipping water out of an oversized champagne bottle, dreaming of your next Vegas vacation.
PBR Rock Bar inside the Miracle Mile Shops is your destination for fun and funky souvenir cups. Ride the mechanical bull then grab a souvenir bull cup. Reverse that order if you need a little liquid courage to before you cowboy up.
PBR Rock Bar’s got rock right in the name so of course you can strap on a giant guitar filled with your favorite beverage. If boot scootin’ is more your thing, grab a giant boot cup. Football fans can fuel their fandom with massive football cups.
Walk the streets of Paris Las Vegas with your own version of the Eiffel Tower, only this one has alcohol in it! The tall beverage comes with a neck strap to help you carry it. If you’re looking for something a tad easier to slip into your suitcase to bring home, try the replica of the Montgolfier balloon, itself a replica of the gorgeous neon balloon marquee sign from the front of the casino.
In case you’re not up on your history, Cleopatra and Julius Caesar were more than just friends. This would explain her presence at the center Strip property. Cleo’s got her own hip hangout, Cleopatra’s Barge, complete with her bust (including her bust!) jutting out from the bow of the replica ship. Take this photo op to the next level by posing by Cleo with a golden Cleopatra souvenir cup, or better yet, reunite her with Caesar near the hotel’s lobby.
Las Vegas is known for being a blingy destination. You wear your fancy shoes to the club and spring for bottles of champagne by the pool. Celebrate this excess in proper blingy fashion with a Shiver bling bottle, the size of a magnum bottle of champagne. Available in gold or silver, the novelty cups are decked out in glitter, naturally.
Ever had a daiquiri out of a zebra hoof? Well, now you can! Purple Zebra inside The LINQ Hotel and Casino has a wide variety of frozen drinks to cool you off. If you’ve always wanted to be a Strip performer but lack the actual talent, you can grab yourself a saxophone drink cup and pretend. You’ve got a musical instrument and you’re on the Strip… technically you’re a Strip musician!
Take a ride on the High Roller then take a piece of the adventure home with you with your very own souvenir pod drink. The pods come in various colors so you can grab your favorite shade.
O’Sheas is paradise for luck-loving beer pong fanatics and you can score your own pair-a-dice when you order a yard-long cocktail there. Souvenir cups come with a pair of giant dice at the bottom of the cup.
Ever just really, really needed a margarita the size of your head? Chayo Mexican Kitchen delivers with a massive 46 oz. margarita! There’s also a smaller 32 oz. cup that comes with $20 refills, provided you can finish the first one.
At Carnaval Court, the novelty of the drinks aren’t just in the containers. This flair bar specializes in drinks with a show. Bartenders, excuse me, flairtenders, toss bottles behind their backs and under their legs as they pour you the perfect cocktail. Grab a giant yard-long souvenir cup full of your favorite refreshing beverage.
If you’ve ever dreamed of wasting away in Margaritaville, then the blender cup from Margaritaville at Flamingo Las Vegas ought to put you in the right frame of mind. Sip on a frozen concoction to help you hang out, and hang on to those vacation vibes back home with your very own souvenir blender cup.
Can’t decide if you’re a bar person, club person or even somewhere in the middle? No worries. That’s what we’re here for. We break down Vegas nightclubs and bars so you can party ’til the break of dawn.
Just remember no matter what you do, Vegas nightlife always wins.
If your main goal is to dance all night, then you really don’t have to read past this section. You’re lucky because Vegas is known for its worldwide all-out parties, so turn up!
You can catch your favorite EDM DJs and producers at OMNIA Nightclub at Caesars Palace, or the biggest hip-hop acts at Drai’s Nightclub at The Cromwell. So who will it be? Dance to Calvin Harris at OMNIA Nightclub or artists like T.I. or Miguel at Drai’s? You make the call.
If you’re looking forward to catching up with friends (or get to know that cutie who’s been eyeing you all night), you can forget about it at a nightclub. You can’t hear squat. And even if you were to go with your gals to the ladies room, there will be others chatting up a storm. (Too bad clubs don’t come with subtitles, right?)
When you want to reminisce about kindergarten with your childhood bestie or find a new “friend” to possibly hang out with the entire weekend, bars are your best bet. We love the vibe at VISTA Cocktail Lounge, which has digitized displays of famous city skylines. And if the convo gets stale, you can always point to the “cities” you want to visit and take it from there.
You can forget about ordering a fancy schmancy drink at a nightclub. Not only will you be holding up the line, but you’d have to yell your order and nobody likes that customer. At a bar, you won’t have to worry about being a pest. Head to any bar and mixed drinks are the bartenders’ specialty. Have a bougie cocktail and a cigar at Montecristo Cigar Bar inside Caesars Palace. The gorgeous drink you see above is the cigar bar’s popular drink, Mr. Tasty’s Blackberry Mojito. It’s made with Bacardi dragon berry rum, hand-squeezed lime, house-made simple syrup and topped with blackberries and fresh mint.
Feel like drinking something that tastes like a Girl Scout cookie? The thin mint martini at 3535 is one of our faves. Don’t miss the refreshing Wat-A-Pear or any of the other house-made infusion based cocktails.
Hey, if you’re satisfied with a Jack and Coke or vodka and soda water, then you won’t have any problem going to a nightclub. Besides, you’re here for one reason and one reason only – to dance all night. You want to leave the bar as much as the bartender wants to get to next customer!
So you and your squad got free drinks and now you want to ditch the peeps who bought them for you. At a club, you can. If you don’t lose them in the huge crowd, you can always escape to the rooftop — Drai’s Nightclub, VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub and Lounge, Chateau Nightclub and OMNIA Nightclub all have one. And hey, not only will you have an escape route, but you’ll catch some sweet views of the Strip too.
This brings us back to the aforementioned deep, meaningful conversation bit. Let’s say you met someone at a bar, ended up liking them and want to have another convo. You’re not trying to escape. You want that up-close and personal interaction. (But in case things do go awry, there’s always the “Gotta go to the bathroom” excuse.)
You’re trying to wind down from your trip, but you still want to sip. If you want a relaxed setting where dress code isn’t required, that’s where Vegas bars come in. Head to Le Central at Paris Las Vegas. You can people-watch and the admire the stunning chandeliers above. Plus if you’re more of an early bird than a night owl, you’re in luck: Le Central’s daily happy hour is from 6 a.m. – 2 p.m. which includes $8 specialty cocktails.
We also like Bound at The Cromwell. The dim lighting gives it a relaxed feel so if you’re still recovering from last night’s festivities, you won’t have to wear shades. Try the breakfast martini, which includes fresh orange marmalade or the bold and spicy Spicy Fifty.
iBar at the Rio offers reverse happy hour specials from 1 a.m. – 4 a.m. Drinks are half off. You can sit back, play games and even watch music videos to your favorite songs.
Maaan… FORGET chill. You can chill at home, right? You’ve come to Vegas to live each night to the fullest. Atmosphere is everything and you want to make all your friends jealous via Instagram and SnapChat. You’ll love the gigantic shape-shifting chandelier at OMNIA Nightclub’s dance floor, as well as its rooftop area when you need to cool off. The rooftop has the best Strip views, especially of the Eiffel Tower across the street. You want all the lights, sounds and action you can get. Bring it on, special effects!
If you don’t the party to stop, head to Drai’s After Hours at The Cromwell. This club is open so late, it closes early: We’re talking 10 a.m. early.
Have you been to FIZZ Las Vegas? If you haven’t, well you need to make a trip. From the creative mind of Elton John’s partner, David Furnish, this swanky Vegas bar displays artwork from their London home. The drinks are extra fancy and the vibe we get is an exclusive A-list party. And you don’t have to buy a table. Plus, it’s not every day you can admire art from Elton John’s personal collection. Champagne lovers will surely enjoy the Bottomless Bubbles, hosted every evening from Thursday through Sunday ($45).
Party plus romance? That’s the exact vibe we get with Chateau’s outdoor patio. Imagine dancing beneath the Eiffel Tower with sparkling lights and trellises surrounding you. Plus, having bottle service outside is not too shabby, either. It’s like an upscale cocktail party, but with a DJ.
We’re going to tell you this right now: There is no way you’re going to do a bar crawl in heels. Unless you already wear heels 24/7. But this is your excuse to dress down and hit up the bars at The LINQ Promenade. You can have everything from a juice cocktail at Squeeze to your home state beer at AmeriCAN and cocktails on the 550-foot-tall High Roller observation wheel.
Technically, you can club hop but your poor, poor feet will be sorry. Plus, rounding up your squad, weaving through crowds and lining up to get into another club isn’t exactly anyone’s idea of fun. We imagine you chose your club for a reason and are completely cool with grooving to music there all night.
You’re not looking to dress up, but dress down. You could probably get away with wearing your PJs and rockin’ a bedhead (although we don’t encourage it — you don’t want to appear like you just left Mom’s basement). BEER PARK at Paris Las Vegas is for you. You can play everything from corn hole to giant Jenga and get your grub on with a full menu. Wash down your munchies with a bevy of beer selections, served in bottles or by draft.
VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub and Lounge is a Vegas nightclub, but there’s also a spiffy steakhouse when you go down the spiral staircase. You can have a romantic dinner and go upstairs for cocktails and mingling. When you are more than 50 stories high gazing from the rooftop, life can’t get much better than that. Tip: Get the Witch Doctor, a cocktail combining multiple rums and dry ice. Talk about a spellbinding potion.
Can’t decide if you’re a bar or club person and feel like you’re more in between? For bar and club lovers, you fit into our special hybrid category we’d like to call blubber. (Kidding!) Luckily, if you fall in the middle you can have the best of both worlds:
You’re on a boat people. A boat. Cleopatra’s Barge hosts have acts here sometimes and hey, if you didn’t make the cruise this year you can party here instead. This Vegas lounge also has live shows: Past entertainers include Ceelo Green, Matt Goss and Plain White Ts. You can also enjoy live music and DJs from Tuesday through Saturday nights.
If you want to get your dance on and people-watch at the same time, Carnaval Court is your best bet. We also love the bar’s flair bartenders. They go all out. And the Strip is only a few steps away… perfect if you need to sober up and walk off that alcohol. Since you’re right by the Strip, you’ll be sure to see some crazy costumed characters too.
Bonus: The Piano Bar is just next door and features around 12 hours of free live entertainment daily. Take your pick between Dueling Piano Twins or Fat Elvis.
And if you’re still not sure, just hit up all of these hot spots. Check out more Vegas nightlife and we’ll see you at the next party.
There are those that complain about our desert climate. But one of the nice things about living in the heat is that we can keep our grills going all year long. While many visitors have to pack up their BBQs and get out their winter clothes come September, our grilling season is still going strong. With that in mind, here are some of our favorite – year-round! – barbecue spots in Vegas:
One of the centerpiece stations at the world’s best buffet is the meat smoking / carvery area. Brisket, hot links, turkey, chicken sausages and Wagyu beef are all presented in that low and slow style at the Bacchanal Buffet with a bevy of sides to choose from including multiple variations of potatoes and a classic mac and cheese.
Some people might not think of Chinese food as barbecue, but they should. Beijing Noodle No. 9 features a 14-page menu but has a specific section dedicated to barbecue. Specialties include roast duck with delicious crispy skin, roast whole squab and barbecue pork. The pièce de résistance is a whole suckling pig which requires such in-depth preparation that diners must order it two days in advance.
Bobby Flay has proven to be a master of the grill throughout his career. At his Caesars Palace outpost, Flay showcase his twists on the familiar by putting barbecue spins on a couple of items. At lunch, a Cobb salad is decked out with avocado, tomato, Maytag blue cheese, eggs, bacon and buttermilk dressing. It all serves to hoist up the star of the dish, barbecued lamb. Meanwhile, those hankering for their barbecue fix at dinner can chow down on red chile barbecue duck. The spiced fowl is accompanied by a blue corn and red quinoa Johnny cake, fresh figs, and cracklings (more crispy skin!).
The Cobb salad proves to a be popular vessel to showcase barbecue meats on The Strip. At BEER PARK the topping of choice is barbecue chicken. The alcohol-themed venue also has a barbecue burger which sees a beef brisket patty cooked over beech wood and hard wood charcoal. The burger is topped with Goose Island candied bacon, cheddar cheese, barbecue sauce, onion rings and jalapeño slaw. That’s a whole lot of yummy-ness between two buns.
Not surprisingly, there’s a lot of barbecue action going on at the Oklahoma native’s honky-tonk. A barbecue pulled pork sandwich at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill utilizes roasted pork shoulder, fried onions and barbecue sauce on a home-style bun. That same sauce and those same onions can be found on the Louisiana hot link sandwich which is served on a hoagie roll. There are also St. Louis style pork ribs and barbecue rotisserie chicken. For those looking to go big, check out the Wrangler Sampler which is a plate full of three barbecue ribs, two “Whiskey Girl” hot wings that can be done barbecue style, two Louisiana hot links and two barbecue pulled pork sliders plus two sides.
You can’t have an All-American eatery without some good, old-fashioned barbecue. While ribs are always on the menu, the Labor Day special is really a ‘cuer’s dream come true. The End of Summer Feast lives up to its name. A third of a rack of pork ribs and a barbecue flat iron steak are served with American grill-out staples corn, baked beans, corn bread and watermelon.
You know the man famous for visiting classic American eateries is bringing barbecue to the table at his own restaurant. Here, the star of seemingly 67 Food Network shows, has multiple options showcasing smoky and sweet flavors. The Motley Que sandwich, which was featured on Guy Fieri’s “Triple D,” is a vehicle for the pulled pork shoulder, in this case smothered in Fieri’s bourbon brown sugar barbecue sauce. Complimentary flavors come courtesy of citrus slaw, pickle chips, aged cheddar cheese, onion cheese and donkey sauce. It’s all served on a toasted pretzel hoagie.
Trash can brisket nachos use house smoked burnt ends and chipotle barbecue sauce. The bombardment of toppings resting above corn tortilla chips also includes nacho cheese sauce, jalapeño, crema and pico de gallo. You know Fieri sees dishes like this in his dreams.
Double-barrel barbecue wings coat the fried wings in bourbon brown sugar barbecue sauce and chipotle and are served with assortment of dip-worthy items for the tangy ranch that also adorns the plate, namely fried onion straws and a raw veggie medley.
There’s also a 14-hour beef brisket cooked low and slow. It’s smothered in chipotle barbecue sauce and served on top of garlic toast. Citrus slaw and fries round the large plate out.
The restaurant that specializes in twisted farm cuisine offers giants portions of their slow cooked barbecue pork ribs or their barbecue chicken sandwich. The former is braised with house soy barbecue sauce and is accompanied by grilled horseradish mashed potatoes and fresh veggies. The latter is served on a wheat bun and comes with perfectly fried onion rings.
The Longhorn is big enough to earn its Texas style nickname. A char-grilled frank is smothered with smoked barbecue beef brisket, coleslaw, onion rings and a pickle. It feels like biting into America! And while this is a place for hot dogs, they do some serious burgers here too. The Southern Smokehouse also utilizes barbecue beef brisket, coleslaw, pickles and onion rings and tops it with melted cheddar cheese. Riches upon riches, as they say.
It might be known as a top-notch live music venue, but the food at Brooklyn Bowl is also first rate. The menu features barbecue pork sliders served with coleslaw and pickled cucumbers (also known as pickles) and smoked barbecue chicken wings – up to 24 pieces. It’s perfect snack food while bowling or rocking out to a great band.
For those looking for the barbecue promised land, look no further than Virgil’s Real Barbecue. The story goes that the founder spent many a day wondering the backstreets of the South, learning everything he could under the barbecue tree. Now with three successful locations, there is something for everyone at this barbecue joint. Pulled pork, Carolina pulled chicken, Memphis smoked pork spare ribs, smoked barbecue chicken and trash riblets rounds out the base of the menu. That’s regional specialties done right in all different forms – sandwiches, platters, combos, etc. And for diners who can’t decide what to get, there is the Pig Out Platter, which has all of the meats plus two sides. All barbecue cravings will be taken care of here.
