When you go to Las Vegas, one of the biggest draws of the city is the nightclubs.
The Strip is populated with hundreds of bars, and the top tiers have access to premier rooftop locations.
If you’re looking for an unforgettable rooftop experience, you need to know which places you can’t miss when sampling the nightlife of Las Vegas.
These rooftop options are the crème of the crop when it comes to nightlife and the famous Las Vegas view.
Here are 15 Vegas Rooftop Bars You Have to Visit!
