Stop For a Drink at One of These Ten Great Las Vegas Hotel Bars

The traditional Las Vegas hotel bar is usually located in the casino, although with many newer hotels (some without gaming), hotels have started to change that trend. Still, a seat at the casino's main bar will give you a great seat for all the action going on in the casino, and many have video gaming machines installed in the bar.

The Hard Rock's Center Bar falls into the traditional category, with a full 360 degree view of all that's going on in this hip hotel. View Bar, at Aria, isn't in the casino, but it is just off the lobby and front desk in a central location that makes it great for a quick drink before going out.

At the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, the Chandelier's casino-level bar puts a new twist on the Las Vegas hotel bar with the incredible centerpiece that gives the bar its name. Have a seat here to do some people watching. The upper two levels offer patrons a chance to experience a bit more privacy in crystal folds of the huge Chandelier.

Departing from the standard casino bar, the Mandarin Bar offers a spectacular view of the Strip in a classy setting. At the Stratosphere's Air Bar, you'll go even higher, to Level 108 where the Strip is 800 feet below you and the drinks are strong enough to earn names like Jet Fuel.

Looking for music to go with your drinks? Experience dueling pianos at the Encore's Eastside Lounge, or dance music at MGM's Centrifuge. V Bar at the Venetian is a more sedate bar until about 10 p.m., when the music starts.
