Las Vegas never sleeps. Day and night, the city’s bright neon lights twinkle and shine and the jingling sounds of the casino’s slot machines never take a break. When you’re in need of a little respite from all the madness on the ground, the towering rooftop bars in Las Vegas offer the perfect solution. They serve up delectable drinks and you can take in some of the city’s best sights without having to traipse through the streets for hours on end.
It doesn’t get much better than soaring up to the heavens and enjoying a mouthwatering cocktail, a sophisticated glass of wine or a refreshing ice-cold beer. And let’s not forget the dazzling views of Sin City that these bars boast too. From the Bellagio Fountain to Vegas’ own version of the Eiffel Tower, you can see some of the city’s most impressive landmarks from many of these stunning sky-high watering holes in the city.
