Where to Take a Load Off
Vegas is a never-ending wonderland of attractions and experiences and visitors may find themselves trekking for hours in an attempt to see it all. Sometimes, the best way to explore is to stop, relax and have a seat. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to take a load off without missing a second of what this world-class destination can offer.
- There are many reasons to be thankful for Franklin, an upbeat yet understated lounge at Delano Las Vegas, the newest non-smoking, non-gaming hotel on The Strip. Every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night, up-and-coming DJs perform live sets cultivating the perfect atmosphere for friends to sit back and have a craft cocktail (or two) without ever setting foot inside a nightclub – or in a casino.
- For those who are itching to gamble and drink but also want the atmosphere of a swanky bar, Whiskey Down at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino provides a nice blend. The 24-hour lounge features six Blackjack tables, seven video poker machines at the bar and a Brunswick regulation sized pool table. Whiskey Down also offers a wide array of spirits including “The Last Drop,” a 1960 Scotch Whiskey, one of only 1,347 bottles produced.
- Forget walking up and down The Strip to observe the colorful characters found only in Las Vegas. At the Monte Carlo Plaza, guests can enjoy prime people-watching while relaxing on a sprawling outdoor patio. Each evening, the plaza hosts live entertainment for guests enjoying one of the five surrounding culinary venues: Yusho Japanese Grill & Noodle House, 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria, Sambalatte Coffee Lounge & Espresso Bar, Double Barrel Roadhouse and BLVD Creamery. How’s that for dinner and a show?
