Las Vegas is often referred to as the "entertainment
capital of the world". Not only for the casinos,
but also for the exciting Vegas entertainment shows.
For years, a Las Vegas production has been a must-see
attraction on the strip. If the production
shows in Las Vegas are too expensive or sold out,
you can still find a plethora of Las Vegas lounge shows,
most of which are free.
The best Las Vegas lounge shows are at the bigger casinos. In these Las Vegas lounge shows, you can find several up and coming artists who sing, play piano or do stand up comedy nightly. The big casinos have several lounges in which to sip on a cocktail and catch a performer.
Some of the free lounge shows Las Vegas offers are Cleopatra's
Barge in Caesar's Palace,
where you can literally sit in a barge shaped bar and
sip on a pina colada while watching the performance.
In the J-Pop Lounge at Mandalay,
you can munch on sushi while watching the nightly entertainment.
More Las Vegas lounge shows can be found at the Orleans,
with a cabaret bar show, or the Bar at Times Square in
the New York New York
Hotel with the dueling pianos performance.
The Excalibur's Minstrel
Lounge bar has no cover, no drink minimum and has live
entertainment nightly. The Monte
Carlo has a great microbrewery with a selection of
fine beers and live bands nightly. Any big
casino will have some of the best free lounge shows Las
Vegas has to offer.
Other unique Las Vegas lounge shows include the Casbar
Theatre Lounge at the Sahara where theatre performances are free nightly, and the Shadow
Lounge at the Caesar's Palace featuring the shadow
dancers performing nightly with the flair bartenders.
As with the other free lounge shows Las Vegas has to offer
there is no drink minimum and no cover charge. These
seats are limited and fill up quickly so arrive early
to ensure a seat.
