Las Vegas. The name says it all. Vegas is a town where you can be whoever you want to be and do (pretty much!) whatever you want to do. In that sense, the city is often overwhelming to those who are going; many of the great aspects of Vegas are overlooked by visitors simply because there is SO much to do there. To that end, we’ve made this article as a guide to those who wish to hit the best bars that can be found in the city of sin.
For those who wish for a touch of class and an old-school feel to their bar, visiting the Empire Ballroom is a must. This bar was modeled after a 1930’s speakeasy-type bar, and its lush 16,000 square feet provide nothing but class and decadence. The bar has a number of private VIP rooms as well as a host of opportunities to get away from the dance floor with its outdoor patios. One thing to note about the ballroom: if you’re not exactly ready for the night to end early, an after-party is hosted at the Empire that lasts from 3AM to 10AM, every weeknight!
For a traditional Irish styled pub, you can do no better than J.C. Wooloughan’s Irish Pub. They have a wide selection of spirits, including 32 different types of triple-distilled single malt whiskey. The bar follows a theme of race-horses, with several authentic pieces of memorabilia scattered throughout. The pub also features an outdoor beer garden for those who wish for a breath of fresh air.
Looking for a low-key, hip club that is only known to few? Beauty Bar definitely will meet your expectations. Discretely labeled “Salon of Beauty” by its sign outside, you should not let the name fool you. The bar features a retro-style design with antique hair-dryer chairs providing most of the furniture. It’s a very unique experience that should not be missed by one who wishes for a special Vegas trip.
If what you’re looking for from your Vegas trip is a let-it-all-hang-out, loose, wild experience, Coyote Ugly might be the bar for you. The bar is packed full of beautiful waitresses that spend their time pouring, laughing, and gyrating in an all-out show of a pure rock-n-roll sense. If you don’t drink whiskey, you might want to skip this bar. The honky-tonk attitude and in-your-face antics of the bartenders is enough to provide a memorable experience for years to come, if you can remember it!
