What a way to start or finish your night without the hustle of a nightclub but with the prime spots for people watching. The hotel bars in Las Vegas have ample opportunities to take in some entertainment while you sip on a cocktail or three. Here’s a look at the top five hotel bars in Las Vegas.

1 Chandelier

Nothing makes you feel famous more than sitting inside a three-story chandelier while sipping on cocktails. The Chandelier sports three experiences within one space on three levels. Go for the casino-level bar to spy on the gamblers or choose something more intimate on the second and third levels. The entire place is drenched in 2 million crystals to form the chandelier.

2 Mandarin Bar

When you want to keep your cocktails vintage while your setting modern, slip up to the 23rd floor of the Mandarin Oriental for a night at Mandarin Bar. Master mixologists put together a swanky cocktail list that includes the Golden Leaf aka The Mandarin Martini made with Hendrick’s gin, Aperol, muddled mandarin, pineapple, fresh lime juice and simple syrup. And the view will make you swoon like one of the dolls on “Mad Men” at one of the best hotel bars in Las Vegas.

4 Parasol Up and Parasol Down

A witty collection of upside parasols sets the tone for these two hotel bars with a prime view of the casino floor. Snuggle up in one of the cozy chairs surrounding the bar and get your people-watching ready. Downstairs you can look out at the Lake of Dreams with Lakeside Grill and SW Steakhouse snuggled on either side.
