Margaritaville Casino Las Vegas brings Jimmy Buffet’s signature laid-back style to the Las Vegas Strip. Parrotheads and gaming buffs—as well as anyone who wants to check out what’s cool in Las Vegas—will want to add a visit to the newest gaming space at the Flamingo. The new casino joins the adjacent and wildly popular Margaritaville restaurant.
The Margaritaville Casino is a one-of-a-kind gaming experience that joins the Las Vegas scene in October 2011. The 15,000 square feet of space has plenty of room for playing the slots and table games—220 slot machines and 22 tables, to be exact.
The centerpiece of the Margaritaville Casino is the 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar, whose name was inspired by the hit song Buffet recorded with Alan Jackson a few years back. With the philosophy that it’s always happy hour somewhere, the bar serves up cold, draft beers, inventive shots and, of course, more margaritas than you could dream up. There’s also fun appetizers and decadent desserts on the menu.
For more of the island spirit, you need only walk a few steps to explore the Flamingo Las Vegas. Nestled in the middle of The Strip, the oasis in the desert is as lush as any island. The 3,500 guestrooms offer plenty of room to relax in luxury without a premium price tag. Outside lies a lush, tropical pool complex that stretches over 15 acres dotted with waterfalls and palms, a scene that any Parrothead would love.
Since the first Margaritaville opened in Key West, Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville has brought the island lifestyle to favorite U.S. destinations, including Orlando, New Orleans, and Panama City Beach. The island-themed Margaritaville restaurant landed in Las Vegas in 2004, quickly becoming one of the most popular elements of the Las Vegas dining scene. The Margaritaville Casino Las Vegas joined the scene in 2011, also located at the Flamingo just a few steps away from the restaurant.
Of all of the Las Vegas hotels, the Flamingo Las Vegas Resort was the most natural choice for the Margaritaville location. Both the resort and Margaritaville embrace the island vibe—no one worries that the ocean is more than 300 miles away. After all, island living is a state of mind, and the sun shines as brightly in Las Vegas as it does in the Caribbean.
The first Margaritaville Casino anywhere adds gaming to the signature mix of live music, relaxing cocktails and fun found at other locations. This new Las Vegas venue will delight all kinds of people—those looking to have fun and spend time with Lady Luck as well as those who have been Parrotheads for 30 years and know all the lyrics to all the Jimmy Buffet songs. If you’ve ever spent time dreaming about slipping away to a sunny island with a margarita in hand, you’ll love this immersive experience.
