Carnaval Court Bar & Grill
On the Strip outside Harrah’s Hotel and Casino
Boasting some of the world’s top flair bartenders, Carnaval Court was voted one of the best flair bars in the country. Depending on your order it may seem like everything behind the bar is aflame, but fear not, your libation will be chilled to your liking by the time it hits your lips. Eat, drink, dance and play…you can have it all at the most exciting outdoor entertainment venue on the Las Vegas Strip. Live bands take the Carnaval Court stage daily performing pop, jazz, beach music and more. A talented staff serves tasty food and drinks while they entertain patrons by doing everything from singing and dancing to juggling bottles. On the weekends, play a hand of blackjack at live table games. Featured DJs include Colleen Shannon, Playboy Magazine’s 50th Anniversary Playmate.
Peppermill Fireside Lounge
2985 Las Vegas Boulevard
This cozy, tucked away old school joint has a sense of swing inbuilt, and might be the best way to re-live the Rat Pack’s heyday. A Vegas original, the Peppermill lounge serves drinks that would be an embarrassment anywhere else: Mai Tai’s, Blue Hawaii’s and the famous Scorpion for two. But when the bar maid sits down to take your order, suddenly it all makes perfect sense. Many lovers have been known to sink into those blue velvet loveseats and sneak a kiss or two underneath the silk cherry blossom bushes lit by the bubbling gas flames of the Jacuzzi fountain at the center of the room.
