Top 10 Views in Las Vegas
Our List of Top 10 Views Features Some of the Best Restaurants, Attractions and Nightclubs in Town!
Taking in the bright lights, razzle dazzle, and tangible chaos that is Las Vegas is best done from one of these hot spots with a spectacular view.
This tower hotel that marks the north end of the Strip is most known for its gnarly rides on the top two floors. On the way up, everybody stops on the observation floor to take in the very highest view in Vegas. Scaredy cats can stay there (or belly up to the bar), while the thrillseekers will head on up for the ride of their lives. Thrills not your thing? The Top of the World Restaurant (pictured) on the 106th floor features fine dining and unparalleled views. 2000 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 380-7777 stratospherehotel.com
The High Roller
Leave your fear of heights at home – Las Vegas’s newest attraction, the High Roller at the Linq, is the tallest observation wheel in the world! But the 360 degree views of the Strip are worth any butterflies in your stomach. After your breathtaking 30-minute ride, stick around to browse the shops, restaurants, and bars that line the complex. 3545 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 322-0560 caesars.com
Leave it to the French! The Eiffel Tower is one of the most romantic destinations in town and you can catch great center strip views from it’s observation deck. If you really want to kick up the romance then make a reservation at the restaurant. This romantic setting 100 feet above the Strip features exquisite food and spectacular views from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Open for lunch and dinner (plus brunch on weekends), highlights include a spicy lamb burger and any grilled fish on the menu. 3655 S Las Vegas Blvd, (888) 727-4758 parislasvegas.com
Whether you’re in the mood for formal French dining, or late-night bottle service with a DJ, Mix has got your covered. For dinner, super-chef Alain Ducasse has planned a decadent menu that includes spicy crab salad and a pepper-crusted bison tenderloin. Sit outside for views that will blow your mind. Then settle into the lounge (pictured) for a nightcap – or to dance the night away. Did we mention the location is the 64th floor of the Mandalay Bay? Even the bathroom stalls have windows that curve all the way down to the floor to play with its guests’ vertigo. 3950 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 632-7777 mandalaybay.com
Tasty French fare on the 56th floor of the Palms, Alize is a long-time favorite of the romantically inclined. Michelin-starred, the food is to die for, from decadent caviar and foie gras, to veal loin and butternut squash. Linger over dessert and wine – or a cognac from the restaurant’s famous collection – and take in the scene through stunning floor-to-ceiling windows. 4321 W Flamingo Rd, (702) 951-7000 alizelv.com
The brand-new Drai’s Beachclub/Nightclub has been a hit since day one, thanks to Victor Drai’s aesthetic (he also opened nightclubs at the stunning Wynn resorts) – and the view. On the rooftop of the new Cromwell Hotel in the heart of the Strip, Drai’s offers unparalleled views both in the sunny days and the glitzy lights-filled nights, so much so that the edge of the club pretty much remains filled with people taking photos at all times. But don’t think this means Drai’s is meant for romance – this club is all about partying hard, Sin City style. 3595 Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 777-3800 draislv.com
Head to Hyde at Bellagio around sunset to grab a cocktail or a snack for the best view of the stunning “dancing” Fountains. In good weather, the hot spot opens its patio right onto the lake. Early, the lounge has a sexy, relaxed vibe; it turns into a popular nightclub at 10. 3600 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 693-8700 sbe.com
This downtown steakhouse, named after Las Vegas’s popular former mayor (and one-time defense attorney for members of the Mob), nabbed the prime location at The Plaza. Staring right down famous Fremont Street, the circular dining room doesn’t have a bad seat in the house. Load up on Oscar’s legendary martinis, plus sinful steaks and other treats. 1 S Main St, (702) 386-7227 oscarslv.com
Wynn Country Club
An elegant power lunch (and dinner) spot for the local elite, Wynn’s Country Club overlooks the only Strip golf course, accented by a waterfall near hole 18. The greens are so relaxing to gaze at that you can focus on the food – salads, entrees like veal porterhouse, and a creole burger – and the company, of course. Call for details on their famous Sunday jazz brunch, and inquire about patio seating when the weather’s nice. 3131 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 770-3315 wynnlasvegas.com
