Let’s get one thing straight: there’s no wrong way to drink champagne in Las Vegas. There are, however, plenty of right ways to drink it. Like everything in Las Vegas, ordering a beverage is often as much of a spectacle as it is a pleasure. When it comes to sipping champagne – an effervescent, luxurious, yet light-hearted drink that practically embodies the soul of Las Vegas – you can swig it from a bottle while walking down Las Vegas Boulevard, you can order it from a cocktail server while playing video poker, or you can opt for one of these creative approaches.
Champagne Vending Machine
If you think vending machines aren’t upscale, you’ve never ordered a bottle of champagne from one. The opportunity to do just that is waiting for you on the 23rd floor of the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas (formerly the Mandarin Oriental). A unique champagne vending machine is available for all of your bubbly needs. Simply purchase a speciality Moet coin from the front desk, insert it into the machine and in no time a mini bottle of champagne complete with disposable flutes will be ready for you to enjoy.
Champagne and Poutine
Sometimes, unlikely combinations prove to be downright genius. This is certainly the case at Fries N’ Pies. The Off-Strip restaurant specializes in poutine and champagne. The menu at Fries N’ Pies features a wide range of poutine recipes, including the original version (fries, gravy and cheese curds), plus inventive versions with ingredients such as pesto alfredo and chicken. Once you’ve chosen your perfect poutine recipe, you can pair it with a bottle of Dom Perignon or Perrier Jouet.
Champagne Super Soakers
The Vegas dayclub was built on a simple, yet brilliant idea: What if the party kept going? If you visit Las Vegas during the summer season, you’ll have the opportunity to attend your choice of raucous dayclub parties. Picture a wild nightclub scene transported to a sun-drenched pool. Now add Super Soakers attached to bottles of champagne, and you’ve got a recipe for a riotous, champagne-soaked time. The Super Soaker champagne routine is a popular trend at pools across the city, so if you visit one during the height of the summer party season, you just might find yourself misted by something other than sunscreen.
Champagne Plus a Helicopter Ride
A glass or two of champagne can make you feel like you’re soaring – and so can a helicopter ride. A Las Vegas Strip helicopter tour gives you both. The tour, which includes a champagne toast, takes you high above the neon landscape of the Strip, where you’ll fly all the way from the Luxor to the Stratosphere, taking in a spectacular view of the famous Bellagio fountains along the way.
Champagne Call Buttons at Rosina
Located just steps away from the ringing slot machines and boisterous laughter of the casino floor at the Palazzo, you’ll find an intimate, vintage glam cocktail lounge called Rosina. The 65-seat space is like stepping into The Great Gatsby. Classic cocktails including gimlets, Negronis and Airmails are on the menu, but one modern touch really makes the timeless spot shine. Select tables are outfitted with champagne call buttons, so if you crave a glass of something cold and sparkling, simply summon it.
