Lounge Recommendations

Loud and crowded nightclubs really aren’t some people’s thing and we understand that. There are plenty of relaxing spots in Las Vegas that allow you to sit back, have a drink, and relax in an upscale, yet lively, atmosphere. Most of these bars call themselves “ultra-lounges." An ultra-lounge is a cross between a nightclub and a bar. There is usually not a big dance floor like in a bar, but you will still get the upscale service and VIP amenities that you would find in a nightclub.

One of the sleekest ultra-lounge spots in town is high above the Las Vegas Strip in the fantasy tower of the Palms Hotel Las Vegas. Ghostbar is a chic experience that you will never forget. Glowing lights and posh leather couches welcome warm conversations in an intimate atmosphere. If you feel like you need a breather of fresh air, step out onto the balcony that offers breathtaking views of the Las Vegas Strip below. If you aren’t scared, step onto the glass floor and look down at the ground that seems miles away. With signature drinks and an upscale crowd, you will never miss the loud music of the dance clubs.

Another fun lounge is Tabu at MGM Grand. This lounge combines technology and great music for a high-tech experience. European bottle service is their specialty and if you are lucky enough to get a table at Tabu, you will see what the hype is about. Your table is more than a place to put your drink, it’s interactive. Move the images with your hand or right something with your finger and the image will appear on the wall. The DJ plays the best in electronic music and your bottle will be served in a block of ice.

For something a little more sensual, check out Ivan Kane’s Forty Deuce. This club combines cabaret style performances with an intimate nightlife atmosphere. Red leather seating and individual tables will have you feeling like you took a step back in time and walked right into an old speakeasy.
