Red Square, Las Vegas
I dropped into Red Square when I was killing time before dinner, and I was sorry I hadn't booked to dine here. I just loved it.
It's a Russian bar/restaurant, as the name suggests, and the drink of the night is always vodka in some shape or form. They have a very interesting (to put it mildly) vodka menu, selling all the flavoured and other varieties of vodka, plus cocktails. In addition to this they have most other non vodka drinks that you might want.
I don't drink, but my companion had a Russian Mary which was a variety of Bloody Mary that was extremely spicy and made on pepper vodka. I took a sip and it burned my mouth but was divine.
Service was really good and friendly.
The decor is very Russian - the room is dimly lit in red light and the hammer and sickle is on the floor tiles as you enter. It was different and fun and warm in the atmospheric sense.
The bar top is indeed made from ice and the place appeared to attract a very friendly, happy crowd.
I read the food menu and it was mouth watering. It's such a pity I only had a week in Vegas - so many great restaurants and bars, so little time. A return visit is called for.
Dress Code: People here were smartly dressed, though I didn't see a dress code posted.
This is very attractive and inn place for dancing + bar .Obviously they will serve you vodka with many ingredients.Be cool say no to all american base vodkas like Smirnoff etc
ýf you can afford try only the Russian Standart without any ingredients..After 5-7 shots you are ready to listen the music and enjoy your life ...
Dress Code: No special dress code
I found Red Square less exciting than I'd imagined.
Had been told that they had a bar made of ice. And while the bar DID have ice running down it in a strip about a foot wide, it was nothing impressive.
WAS impressed that they had my vodka of choice, in addition to many others.
DO stop off for a drink, they were good and it's on the way to Aureole. You can't miss the place due to the HUGE, headless statue outside the restaraunt. Going inside and ordering a drink, I looke up to find the statues head, in the refrigerator! NICE!
Dress Code: Dress to be seen. Hip and trendy place. People who go there are watching and being watched, trust me.
I've never eaten here, so this review is only for the bar. Which is great! The drinks are way too expensive, but the size and feel of the bar is just perfect. Seriously, this would be my bar of choice if it weren't so pricey and right next to the annoying Rumjungle club in the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.
There are so many different kinds of vodka here you won't even believe it. The bartop is made of ice and you can even go into the refrigerator off to the side to take a look at the expensive stock.
The decor is appropriately Communist-inspired, without the pall of sadness all around. More St. Petersburg than Moscow, perhaps. The too-cool statue of Lenin outside the bar was beheaded after too many complaints (his head is embedded in ice in that back stockroom!).
Dress Code: The going style is dressy casual though there's no door control to speak of.
All Vodka, all the time. It is a relatively small bar for Vegas standards, but the drinks are pricey but great. I would highly recommend getting a "Chernobyl". It costs $13 but you will only need one or two. A russian long island iced tea is a good description for it.
Overall, a pretty nice mixed crowd goes there.
Dress Code: Smart dress.
Food is good but go for the martinis! Get in early for a spot at the frozen ice bar. If you love Martinis, you'll like Red Square!
Dress Code: You could go casual but not too extreme. These Martinis ($10.00 and up) deserve a little basic black dress!
This was a good bar to drink in. It's not as amazing as some places in Vegas but it was quite novel because the bar top is a sheet of ice (don't put your cigarettes down on it!). There's a statue of Lenin outside (minus his head which resides in one of the fridges behind the bar!). The staff were friendly enough (although really busy) and despite us being in there for hours and hours (birthday celebration), the tab didn't amount to as much as we were expecting.
Dress Code: Can't remember what the dress code was, but it was probably no jeans and trainers as it was a hotel bar.
This fun lounge in the Mandalay Bay(?) Is decorated to look like Russia, after the fall -- plenty of vodkas to test, wonderful decadent snacks, a wild place to kick back and socialize.
