Most people think hotel lobbies are just for setting down your suitcase and checking in to your hotel room. Such is not always the case in Las Vegas. Besides opulent and picture-worthy lobbies, Strip hotels offer some of the best lobby bars where delicious cocktailing and comfortable seating perfect for conversation go hand in hand. The following lobby bars—whether checking into that particular hotel or just stopping by—are definitely worth a visit to relax and imbibe.
Settle into the Petrossian Bar at Bellagio for smart cocktails or tea service, while piano players lend a certain elegance to this upscale lounge across from the check-in desk. For those who want to indulge in more than just cocktails, order Petrossian’s famous caviar service.
Another high-end hang that also offers tea service is Aria’s Lobby Bar. This spacious spot offers plenty of sink-in sofas and cozy club chairs. Guests can also order a variety of classic cocktails like a mojito, Cosmopolitan and the Old Fashioned—which is mixed at this bar with bourbon, Demerara, Angostura bitters and an orange peel.
For more classic sips, visit Caesars Palace’s Lobby Bar, where world-renowned mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim put together an impressive menu of celebrated libations. Take a tour through liquid history with the Blood & Sand, mai tai, gin fizz, Singapore Sling, Vesper, sidecar and more, all crafted with the highest quality by highly experienced bartenders.
For a fun, casual lounge that’s just mere steps away from MGM Grand’s front desk, the Lobby Bar offers tables that overlook all the action of the casino floor. It’s a great way to start either the evening or your Vegas vacation after check-in and settle in for some sparkling, white or red wines, rosé or a seasonal craft beer.
