Cocktail server turns on the charm at Level 107
By Kiko Miyasato
She’s got a beautiful smile and an infectious laugh—two traits that are appreciated in the City of Sin. And her personality? Perky, to say the least. “I’m one of those people that it’s not hard to come into work in a happy mood and be very upbeat. I really like to talk, so … talking to people is where I shine the most,” said Cheyenne Thessin, cocktail server at Level 107 Lounge at Stratosphere. “I feel like if you’re upbeat and energetic, it (affects) other people and they’ll be happy, too, and have a good time.”
Thessin has lived in Las Vegas for more than two decades, but it wasn’t until about a year ago that she got into the hospitality industry. She first tried her hand out by the pool at Stratosphere. When the season was over, she headed 107 flights up the tower to easily one of the most romantic spots on the Strip, Level 107 Lounge. “This lounge, hands down, has the best view, and it’s really romantic. … Or you can bring your friends and start the night out here. It’s a great place for all of it,” she said. Thessin is right on the view: nowhere else in Las Vegas can you get the 360-degree view from the tallest building west of the Mississippi.
The Florida native wants her potential guests to know that, “I’ll make you smile if you come up and see me at the lounge. I’ll make your day a little bit brighter.” Isn’t that exactly what we all need these days?
One of Level 107’s more popular selections, the Last Tango is the perfect signature cocktail to sip while watching the sunset. Mixed with Absolut vodka, mango purée and a splash of Sprite, the simply made libation is lip-smacking good. Another awesome reason to visit Level 107: the daily happy hour from 4-7 p.m. You really can’t beat the two-for-one martinis and half-price appetizers, some from the Top of the World menu.
