Linq is located in the center of the Las Vegas Strip and is the reincarnation of what was once Imperial Palace. The hotel at Linq is comprised of 2,253 guestrooms which include options with bunk beds, and even poolside cabana rooms which offer guests direct access to the pool deck.
The renovated gaming floor at Linq has a modern feel and clearly aims to attract a younger clientele.
Below, we’ll detail some of the best things to do at Linq and nearby.
Grab a Frozen Bailey’s at O’Shea’s: If it’s a delicious beverage you seek, look no further than this option. Best described as a Bailey’s flavored malt that also offers intoxicating value, this frozen concoction is the perfect way to ease into the day after a late night of rambunctiousness. A differentiated cocktail option that shouldn’t be overlooked.
Grab a Cocktail at Carnival Court: On the top of our list of favorite things to do at Linq is Carnival Court, a lively Mardi Gras themed bar situated between Linq and Harrah’s. The party-like atmosphere at Carnival Court is amplified by live music which is frequently offered. The bartenders, “Flippy” in particular, make the experience memorable with their bottle flipping flair and acrobatic pours which amount to a free show for patrons.
Check out Big Elvis: Pete Vallee lights up the Piano Bar at Harrah’s, next door to Linq on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays at 2 pm, 3 pm, and 5 pm. The show is also free, making it the perfect thing to do near Linq for Elvis fans.
Hit the Pool: With DJ’s performing 7 days a week, Linq’s pool offers a party vibe that many visitors crave. Located on Linq’s rooftop, guests will also have views of the Linq Promenade below, surrounding resorts, and the High Roller observation wheel.
High Roller Observation Wheel: Anchoring the Linq Promenade, the High Roller Observation Wheel offers guests stunning views of the Las Vegas Strip both day and night. We suggest upgrading to the “Happy Half Hour” package which provides an open bar over the duration of the ride for an extra $13 during the day or $18 at night. We have always gotten our money’s worth.
Whether opting for the unlimited drink package or not, we suggest booking your ride online in advance here. That will allow you to save a few bucks, but also will enable you to skip the line to buy tickets at the attraction.
FlyLinq Zipline: As a rider on the FlyLinq Zipline, you will soar above the crowds milling about on the pedestrian shopping mall below. Riders start on on the Las Vegas Strip side of the promenade and fly to the base of the High Roller. Like with High Roller, we recommend booking in advance online here to ensure you get a ticket for your preferred time slot.
Catch a game at The Book: Linq remodeled what was their TAG Sports Bar space into a sportsbook that feels more like a high-end sports bar than a typical Vegas book. Instead of a few massive screens, The Book at Linq has a plethora of televisions scattered about the venue. Enhance your experience by renting a sectional couch that will provide your group control of 3 TV screens.
Get your arcade game fix at Re:Match: A new indoor/outdoor bar near the front of the property aims to attract a younger demographic with classic games like Pac Man, and Mario Kart available in a non-gambling, arcade format.
Mat Franco’s Magic Show: The former winner of America’s Got Talent adds a humorous twist to his family-friendly magic show. As a popular show, ranked 4.5 stars out of 5 on TripAdvisor, we recommend buying tickets in advance here.
Gorge Yourself at Hash House a Go Go: Known for their insane portion sizes, Hash House a Go Go at Linq offers the type of breakfast that allows you to skip lunch while doubling as being instagrammable. View the full menu here.
Explore the Linq Promenade: A new pedestrian walkway that features various retail, dining, and bar options, the Linq Promenade has something for everyone. We always make a point to stop into AmeriCAN, a bar serving up canned beer, and of course In-N-Out Burger.
Hopefully, we were able to point you towards some fun things to do at and near Linq in Las Vegas. Have a great time!
