Time to chill
Don’t feel like getting dressed up? Want to go have some drinks in a place where you can just chill out and let loose? Looking for that no-shirt-no-shoes-no-problem-type atmosphere? Well, while the following hot spots aren’t literally pushing that credo, figuratively that’s the type of vibe you’ll find: laid-back venues where the fun flows as freely as the booze.
First up, O’Sheas at The Linq Promenade. With beer pong, foosball and bands playing, it’s like a college bar on steroids. The Irish-themed venue also has black jack and roulette and there are several bars both indoor and outdoor. While O’Sheas is open 24 hours, stop by during Lucky Hour, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and 2 a.m.-6 a.m. Monday through Friday, for specials like $3 Jello shots and Miller Lite or Coors Light and $5 shots of Fireball, Patron, Jameson and Jägermeister.
With the new addition of a 10,000-square-foot indoor space, Beer Park at Paris just expanded its room for fun. Since opening a few years ago, the rooftop bar has quickly become the hot spot for beer, sports and picnic-style gatherings. There’s also a smoker that’s used for grilling up tasty burgers and ribs. The beer menu is extensive and includes beer flights and beer cocktails, too. And to enhance your drinking pleasure, play games like giant Jenga and giant chess, pool, darts, foosball and board games.
Even more games await at the adult playground Level Up at MGM Grand. There, cocktails mix with arcade-style games, including giant Pac-Man, air hockey, pinball, shuffleboard and much more. Guests can also check out virtual reality gaming by Zero Latency and, as a group, experience 30-minute adventures like Zombie Survival. There’s also karaoke on Mondays, DJs on the weekend and a not-to-be-missed ’80s tribute rock band, Spandex Nation, on Thursdays.
You get wild, they get wild. You order water, they spray you with water. It’s all in good fun (fun being the operative word) at Coyote Ugly at New York-New York. For more than 15 years, the bar, based off the movie of the same name, has packed patrons inside its confines and it’s always wall-to-wall, boot-scootin’ and hootin’-and-hollerin’ fun. The bartenders—clad in Daisy Dukes and cowboy boots—hop up on the bar throughout the evening to perform choreographed routines, that, yes, might include a shot or two of alcohol poured directly into the mouths of thirsty patrons. Real thirsty? Enjoy a $25 all-you-can-drink draft beer special from 10 p.m.-midnight.
