Caesars Palace offers a variety of hot spots to chill
Start at the very beginning—a very good place to start. That would be The Lobby Bar inside Caesars Palace, the first stop to make if you’re on a drinking tour of Caesars Palace’s lounge offerings. The Lobby Bar has been in place since Caesars Palace first opened its doors, and it was a favorite late-night haunt of some of the music industry’s heavy hitters, including Frank Sinatra and his pals. The lounge is focused on offering classic cocktails and rare spirits.
For views that are not technically real, head to Vista Cocktail Lounge. You can visually travel the world through the lounge’s modern technology—the walls are covered in LED screens that broadcast crisp and real-life imagery like the Manhattan skyline at dusk or rain falling on the city of Shanghai. The lounge is also a prime spot for some group imbibing—try one of the punch bowls that serve multiple people at once.
Don’t worry about anyone needing to wave the smoke out of the air when you’re relaxing at Montecristo Cigar Bar. The 4,000-square-foot lounge is equipped with state-of-the-art filtration systems set up into four distinct areas to chill: the Signature Bar, where you can take a seat and chat with the bartenders; the Library, where you can catch the latest sports; the Courtyard, a faux outdoor paradise; and the Vault Room, where you and some friends can privately splurge on rare cigars and whiskies.
For a hot spot where the music is pumping as well as the drinks, Alto Bar is always packed, especially on weekends when a live DJ spins from 9 p.m.-4 a.m. It’s situated right across from the impressive megaclub Omnia, so there’s always prime people-watching entertainment.
A very good place to end, at the almost opposite side of the property you’ll find Vanderpump Cocktail Garden. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Lisa Vanderpump has brought a slice of her fairytale life to Las Vegas. While the lounge is indoors, guests will feel as if they’ve stepped into an outdoor secret garden with lush foliage, twinkling lights, candlelit tables, vine-covered walls and large palms. Light bites here are divine and there’s plenty of items to choose from and modern specialty cocktails blend delicious flavors with clever names.
