atmospheres perfect for sipping martini's or enjoying
a glass of single malt scotch, while others featuring
anything from a climbing wall, to an assortment of over
500 beers. On the Vegas Strip, some of the newest
and hottest bars are popping up at the big casinos, but

are even out near the UNLV campus, interesting Las Vegas
bars are never too far away.
In Las Vegas, it's important to keep on the edge, pushing the boundaries of what it is trendy, or creating new boundaries with something new. Helping to keep things both fresh and trendy on the Vegas Strip is the Luxor Casino Hotel. In addition to a few new nightclubs, the Luxor has recently introduced some new bars you likely haven't been to. The Luxor Noir Bar, for example, is found through a passage at the new LAX nightclub, and its quiet and romantic scene is ideal for a nice night out. Other new bars at the Luxor include the come-one, come-all Aurora Bar, and the upscale and intimate High Bar, both of which are open 24 hours a day. Some bars on the Vegas Strip have already broken through and are making the top-bar lists of many a critic. The V Bar at the Venetian is one of the most talked about bars in town, offering a pretty swanky feel. At the Kahunaville Bar at Treasure Island, it's one big Caribbean party, with water shows, bartender performances and plenty of frozen cocktails. The Red Square Bar at Mandalay Bay is worth a visit, if not for its headless statue of Lenin, then for its extensive drink menu.
If you are looking for some cool Vegas Sports bars where
you can catch the big game in style, there's always
the popular ESPN Zone bar, which is found at New York New
mentioned before, not all of the notable Las Vegas bars
are found on the Strip. Just west of the popular
drag is a much talked about bar. Located 55 stories
atop the Palms Casino Hotel is
the trendy Ghostbar,
which offers an intriguingly funky decor and 180-degree
views from its plexiglass windows. Like many of
the most popular Vegas bars, the Ghostbar often has quite
a line to wait in. Getting there early or buying
a nightclub pass might be something that interests you
if you want to get into the Las Vegas bars of your choice.
