    Eating / Drinking: The Foundation Room ....

    by kymbanm Written Oct 15, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View from the Foundation Room Balcony

    The foundation room at the top of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino is wonderful. This is a private club, so you'll need 'connections' to get in ...... from the balcony you'll see the best view of the Las Vegas strip the city has to offer. The decor is fabulous .... very plush, rich fabrics, and wonderful statues throughout. There are private rooms for special parties that require reservations.

    People watching is my favorite thing to do here - lots of famous, infamous, and well-to-do folks just lolling about drinking and getting to know one another :)

    Dress Code: Trendy to semi-formal - I'm a desert rat, so I consider this a 'dress-up' location - business attire is also acceptable.

    Eating / Drinking: Relaxation by the Mystics Falls

    Located within the Mystic Falls Indoor Park at Sam's Town is a neat little bar area that looks like a rock and blends right into the scenery. It was a perfect place to sit and relax and have a beer or two while gazing at the Mystic Falls water dance in the lights to a symphonic score recorded especially for Sam's Town by the Indianapolis Philharmonic Orchestra.

    Located within the Monte Carlo Casino Hotel is a place where you can rest your feet, get a bite to eat and a delightful brew. We were exploring and decided to try it out. We enjoyed ourselves and tried some different brews. Very entertaining if you like to chill out and watch the world go by:)

    The Pub is located on The Street of Dreams.

    Hours:
    Sunday - Thursday: 11:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.

    The Bar at Times Square: The Bar at Times Square

    Bar at Times Square NYNY Hotel

    This was a cool laid back place to have a few drinks Its a casual bar with dueling pianos and very similar to "Howl at the Moon" or other piano bar places in other cities. Its nothing special, nothing extraordinary, but its a lot of fun.

    Eating / Drinking: Free drinks

    by MattTB Written Aug 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pick a slot machine near the door the waitresses use to get drinks! That way everytime they pass you, you can ask for anothr cocktail! They are free! BUT it is customary to tip the waitress! If you tip her 2 dollars each time she'll always check you are full up! You just carry on drinking baby!!

    Dress Code: None

    Gordon Biersch Restaurant & Brewpub: For you gold-chain/beev-skirt meat market types:

    by ricknkat Updated Mar 18, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    MAIN SKANK RUNWAY (courtesy GB website)

    When I heard this place was coming to town I really got my hopes up because I knew their beer was great and the building would be pretty swank and include patio seating. Problem is they put it in the middle of the hi dollar financial/ real estate baron area of time and this results in a collosal meat market arena of Roman proportions. There are more open silk shirts and beev-shot skirts here on a given night than just about anywhere in the lower 48. If you enjoy good beer and people-watching as Ferrari driving midlife crisis types are trolling fiercely for painted up gold diggers, then this place is for you!

    Dress Code: As skanky and Armani'd out as you can get. But there are also plenty of fannypack tourist types and underdressed local slobs like me there too.

    Eating / Drinking: La Salsa Pation On the Strip~Hidden gem

    It was kind of chilly in November, but my hubby couldn't pass up a deal of five beers and all the chips and salso you can eat for $20. La Salso had this little patio area set up right next to a gorgeous Trevi fountain. So we ventured in and the waiter brought a heater to next to us and we sat in complete by ourselves. It was nice, because the hubby could see a football game by the bar and I could enjoy the fountain while we snuggled.

    Eating / Drinking: O'Sheas Casino~No More:(

    by Yaqui Updated Feb 23, 2013

    Update: Like in typical Vegas fashion, O'Sheas is no more, it was imploded May 1, 2012 to make way for The Linq, a $550 million retail and entertainment center slated to open in 2013. Vegas is ever so changing, so you never know what is going to happen.

    O'Sheas is one of those establishments that gets overlooked on the strip. It is right across the street from Caesars Palace and between Imperial Palace and the Flamingo. If you looking for some inexpensive spirits, this is the place to stop into. Much cheapier here than going to one of the mega casinos.

    Eating / Drinking: Nine Fine Irishmen

    Me at Nine Fine Irishmen
    4 more images

    Although they serve food, Adam and I had already eaten and went here for after dinner drinks. Adam has recently found a new love: Guinness. He has been on a mission from God to try a black & tan. Since there are no Irish Pubs where we live, he began counting the days to try one in Vegas. I knew there had to be an Irish Pub somewhere in Vegas, and Nine Fine Irishmen did not disappoint. After Adam tried his black & tan, he decided he liked Guinness better. I had a martini with irish creme. After that I ordered a creme brulee with an Irish coffee. Creme brulee is my signature dessert ~ I order it everywhere. This was, bar none, the best I've ever had. Adam doesn't really care for creme brulee and he loved it.

    The atmosphere and ambience were wonderful, and it inspired us to remodel our unused room in the basement. Coming soon, Springfield will have an Irish Pub, in our basement. By invitation only of course!

    Dress Code: Casual nightclub. I didn't see sequins & pearls, but no sloppy dress. There was a wedding party there that night in formals, wedding gown, & tuxedos.

    Hookah Lounge

    by ricknkat Updated Nov 11, 2002

    (courtesy hookah lounge)

    Hookah Lounge This is a great place to hang out after dinner, have a drink sitting on the middle eastern style pillows and sucking on a tasty Hookah pipe (communal) with your friends or potential score. I recommend the grape or peach flavors. And remember, don't inhale- you never know when you may have to testify in Congress. Good music also and they stay open late. The lounge is also connected to Paymon's Mediterranean Cafe which is also a really great off-the-strip restaurant.

    Eating / Drinking: Lobby Bar

    Called the Lobby Bar for a reason because it is tucked away to the side of entrance and the casino floor in the Mirage. We sat at the bar to watch the basketball game and to relax. They were advertising a house special that consisted of Rum, fruit bunch and pineapple for $5. Very good! They had some interesting art and very comfortable seating.

    Aurora Bar: Spectacluar Lighting

    by RAINBOWWINGS Written May 13, 2008
    Luxors own photo

    The Luxor Hotel and casino is to lose its Egyptian theme....much to my dismay, but there you are. Vegas has always been who´s bigger and better than everyone else, so I guess they are going with the flow.
    However one good thing to come out of this change has got to be the Aurora Bar, slap bang in the middle of the vast atrium of the hotel.
    This new bar has the most fantastic lighting which represents the Northern Lights and is truly mesmerising...not to say the least that they make one of the best apple martinis on the Strip!
    So, on arrival, check in, turn round and sit in the bar.....or walk off the street ,thru the doors and the bar is almost facing you.
    For you hardened gamblers who dont want to waste time in bars...they do have bar top slots.

    Crown and Anchor: Brit' Pub

    by UK_GUY_LOVES_VEGAS Written Jun 1, 2003

    This has got to be the best British / English pub in Las Vegas (in fact one of the best I have found in USA). The food is fantastic (especially the fish 'n' chips), the beer selection is great (with beers like Guiness and Stella Artios) and the atmosphere and service is friendly. Its nice to chill out and enjoy a beer without the sound of slot machines.

    Dress Code: No dress code

    Moose McGillyCuddy's: The Loose Moose

    by UK_GUY_LOVES_VEGAS Updated Jun 7, 2003

    What a fantastic bar this is. Just over the road from UNLV, so its normally got the college crowd in there, which pretty much guarantees a party atmosphere. Wednesdays are probably one of tht best nights as it $5 to get in and then super cheap drinks. Last time we were there we had 5 drinks (2 imported beers and 3 cocktails) and the bill came to $5 - unbelievable value. The DJ spins some typical party tunes and everyone gets on the dance floor. This is one of my favourite places in Vegas and as soon as I land in October I'm off to the Loose Moose.

    Dress Code: None
