If you are staying the Stateline area of Lake Tahoe and want a quiet drink away from the casino crowds, head up into the hills above the lake to the Eagles' Nest Bar & Lounge. This laid back, but beautiful bar and restaurant is located in a timeshare, but welcomes anyone who wants to get a great view of the lake and the surrounding mountains.

The bar has about 12 seats, lounge music and a fair amount of locals. Many visitors hang around the fireplace during the winter and in the summer the special drinks include mojitos with fresh mint grown by the owner of the bar.
The drink menu includes premium wines and liquors and specialized cocktails. Each drink will run about $7-$10 and there is also an appetizer menu that includes New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels. The bar is a popular and pleasant place to have a special event, wedding reception or office party.
