If you expect to find a plethora of delicious restaurants and lounges with a view in Las Vegas, you won’t be disappointed. Almost every Strip hotel has a quality restaurant and/or lounge with a great view. Depending on where you’re staying, you can select an evening of excitement from the list of venues below…
Where to Get Your Groove on and Your Hunger Satisfied
Hyde Bellagio: The Bellagio fountain show is something every Vegas traveler must see. So why not get prime seating for it? Hyde Bellagio is a nightclub with an amazing view, upbeat music, and a hip party atmosphere. Dance the night away, drink to forget, and take pictures to remember. Oh, and don’t forget your Gold Card. Hyde is a good time, but it will cost you a pretty penny. Club nights are Tues, Fri, and Sat nights after 10:00pm.
miX at Mandalay Bay: If you’re on the South end of the Strip in the evening, you absolutely MUST get your grub on at miX. Chef Bruno Riou serves up a Ducasse cuisine so delicious that words can’t describe it. You’ll just have to find out for yourself why it’s too good to describe! The view is as amazing as the food. It’s located at the top of the Mandalay Bay, overlooking the entire Strip. Expect to pay $50+ per guest.
VooDoo Lounge at Rio: A bit off-Strip, you’ll find the Rio, which is the home of the World Series of Poker. VooDoo Lounge is located on the 51st floor of this fancy hotel. You don’t have to worry about being a professional dancer to get your groove on here. There are a lot of unskilled dancers that don’t care. They’re just here to have some fun and let loose. This is a rooftop lounge that overlooks the Strip and the beautiful Palms Hotel across the street. $20 cover for the ladies, $30 for the guys.
Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris Hotel: Eiffel Tower restaurant is located on the 11th floor of the Paris Hotel. The view overlooks the Bellagio and is the perfect place to eat and catch the Bellagio fountain show. The menu – created by Chef/Proprietor J. Joho – includes some of the most authentic French cuisine you’ll find this side of the pond. Lobster, shrimp, oysters, and crabs are some of the many tasty treats on the menu. Expect to pay $50-$60 per person. Or, if you’ve just hit the jackpot and have always wanted to try caviar, you can get your hands on a plate of it for around $360.
Top of the World Restaurant at Stratosphere: The most Northern Strip hotel is the Stratosphere. It’s certainly not the fanciest place to gamble or stay, but their Top of the World Restaurant can’t be beat in terms of view and cuisine quality. Your dinner view is the entire Las Vegas Strip from the highest point in town. The menu includes delicious steaks, duck, lamb, pork tenderloin, and high-quality desserts. Better bring the credit card or hit it big at the Craps table prior to arriving at the Top of the World Restaurant. Dinner will cost you $60+, if you’re lucky.
There are certainly many other excellent restaurants and lounges with a view in Las Vegas. But these ones are our favorites. They offer the best views in town, menus created by top Chefs, and unique atmospheres. One final piece of advice: if you want to save money on drinks, get your drink on before hitting up the club. Get buzzed on some free drinks at the casino and then show up to the club to dance the night away.
