Las Vegas is intended to be seen. While an ice cold beer tastes great anywhere, we promise that the experience will be more memorable if paired with a great view. It is our strong suggestion you take advantage of the rooftop, elevated and perfectly positioned bars across Las Vegas during your stay.
Our list of bars with a great view of Vegas focus on just that, bars. We are choosing to steer away from nightclubs that often boast a desirable rooftop location like Drai’s at Cromwell, Omnia at Caesars, Chateau at Paris and Troy Bar at Golden Nugget. If a nightclub scene is what you seek, check the aforementioned options out, but we’re seeking a low key drink.
Not all of our bars boast great elevation, but all offer great sight lines of the city.
Strat’s 107 Skylounge is nestled in the Strat’s SkyPod on, you guessed it, the 107th floor. With breathtaking views of the Las Vegas Strip, this bar with a view is hard to beat. Even better, elevators to the bar are free of charge and you have access to the observation deck free of charge after your cocktails.
Visit from 4-7pm for one of our favorite happy hours in Vegas.
SkyBar at Waldorf Astoria (formerly Mandarin Oriental) offers stunning a panorama mid-Strip perched on the 23rd floor. The upscale cocktail lounge is open from 4pm-1am on weeknights and 12pm-2am on weekends. You can expect to pay around $20 for a cocktail and bottled beer pricing starts at $8. If a great view and experience is what you seek, SkyBar is worth the price point.
Beer Park at Paris, located on the rooftop of Paris mid-Strip overlooks the Bellagio Fountains. The bar is perfectly positioned for taking in the city of Las Vegas while slowly slipping into a state of inebriation. One caveat to our love of Beer Park’s location and view is that they also charge a despised Concession and Franchise Fee (CNF) which adds 4.7% to your bill… for nothing. The good news is there is typically a Groupon offer to take advantage of that lessens the blow. Ask them to take the 4.7% charge off, they will likely remove it.
Whiskey Liquor Up which recently opened at Binion’s doesn’t boast great elevation or rooftop positioning. What it does bring to the table is a rotating circular bar that juts out of the second level of Binion’s under the canopy of the Fremont Street Experience. If old school, vintage neon is your thing, there is no better spot to grab a drink.
Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay provides stunning views of the Strip from the 63rd floor. The bar opens at 6pm and offers a weeknight happy hour Sunday – Thursday from 5-8pm with discounted food and drink items.
Skyfall Lounge at Delano is perched on the 64th floor and sports a stunning view of the entire Strip from the south. A more upscale experience than some others on the list, nightlife attire is required and the lounge opens at 5pm daily.
Topgolf is tucked behind MGM grand and actually gives a nice panorama view of the Las Vegas Strip, especially at night. Our advice is to pay up for a 3rd floor hitting bay and take in Las Vegas. While not a traditional bar or cocktail lounge, Topgolf does a nice job of incorporating fun, drinks, and a great view.
Don’t settle for just any bar or lounge in Las Vegas – Choose one with a great view! If finding a cheaper beverage regardless of scenery is important to you, we also have listed our favorite drink deals on both the Strip and Fremont Street.
