There's another spot to enjoy all-you-can-drink bubbly on December 31st. Just not for $40.
FIZZ at Caesars Palace is offering a three-hour premium open bar package for $125 a person (tax included but a $16 service charge is not). The price includes a champagne toast at midnight and hors d'oeuvres. Table packages begin at $500 for a party of four. Guests can start raising their glass (after glass, after glass) beginning at 9 p.m.

Though the Show in the Sky is no longer happening at Rio, several venues show the property is still alive and well
in some areas. On a recent weekend visit, we enjoyed live entertainment at the stage near the former Show in the Sky area. A six-piece band performed for a sizeable crowd.
Another crowded spot in the casino was the recently renovated iBar. While the entire casino recently got new carpet, iBar got some additional upgrades. New bench-style seating around the perimeter has given the bar a much more loungy feel, making it a great spot to sit and sip while people watching from the center of the casino floor.

Unlike the landlocked folks of VegasChatter, writers for our sister site, Jaunted, get to travel around the world. Recently, they came across nifty robotic bartenders while floating around on the brand new Quantum of the Seas cruise ship. Hit play on the video above to see them in action.

While the newly opened Alibi Cocktail Lounge at Aria touts itself as the "perfect convergence of premium spirits, imaginative ingredients & highly stylized opulence," there's another reason to drink it all in -- you can grab a bite there, too.
Not mentioned anywhere on its website, VegasChatter friend @paperposter alerted us to the -- dare we say -- secret menu. (Disclaimer: it's not secret as there's a printed menu. Secret menu just sounds so much cooler, tho. Kinda like writing 'tho.')
Suncoast / Off Strip / Burgers / The Game / Bars / Eating / Restaurants / Dining / → All Tags
When Suncoast renovated and rebranded its TGIFridays restaurant we noted there didn’t seem to be much design work done. We adjusted expectations accordingly for our first visit to The Game Sports Bar and Restaurant. And, no surprise, The Game was what we thought it was. It’s fun when dinner at a sports bar can bring back memorable moments in sports history.
Dinner started with an order of onion rings and mild buffalo wings. Both were good, but nothing you wouldn’t get from a good bar/restaurant. The bacon cheddar cheeseburger above was served on a buttery brioche bun. The beef was seasoned liberally and cooked a perfect medium. The burger was better than expected, but won't make any of the "Best of Las Vegas" lists
unless they buy an ad. The basic burger comes with french fries and is $9.99. Mainstream craft beers like Magic Hat #9 and Brooklyn Ale are between $5 and $7.

The giant boulders at the entrance to Delano can be excitingly interesting to some, or not. Either way, they’re a harbinger of what’s to come when you enter Delano’s quirky-to-say-the-least lobby. Though this writer shares the seemingly common aversion to Delano’s pillows, I am a big fan of the lobby experience so far, for several reasons.
First off, it truly does feel like I feel a “boutique” hotel should, with that necessary secret clubhouse sort of feel. The word “boutique” is becoming so trite these days, not least of all in the Vegas hotel, dining and bar scenes. It’s refreshing to know there’s a lobby out there that is making a real effort to maintain its prestige as a unique locale.

As if the 3535 Bar at the newly revamped LINQ Hotel (formerly The Quad) wasn't flashy enough, what with the color-changing vortex behind the bar, power outlets and chargers at every seat, gaming tables and no-reservations-required private booths, here comes their crazy, insane in the membrane hand-crafted infusion cocktails.
We've already told you about the playful-sounding Pig Newton, which is made with fig-infused vodka and garnished with a smoked, black salt rim. Now, brace yourself for many more concoctions like the Wat-a-Pear, made with watermelon- and rosemary-infused Tito's Vodka, and the Commodore, made with mint- and apricot-infused Courvoisier VS Cognac.

Openings / Bars / Drinking / Aria / City Bar / Name Changes / Renovations / Alibi Cocktail Lounge / → All Tags
From a new bar to a high limit refresh, Aria is working to bring more new.
The resort officially debuts a new lounge today. Alibi Cocktail Lounge replaces what was City Bar originally. If you can't picture it, it's that bar that's just a
stone chip's throw from the resort's casino cage.
Open round-the-clock, Alibi isn't keeping its standard upscale lounge concept under wraps, billing itself as the "perfect convergence of premium spirits, imaginative ingredients and highly stylized opulence." Or, as we translate it, trendy craft cocktails in a posh, new setting.
VegasChatter reader @paperposter sent in the photos of Alibi you see in the photo gallery below. He reports that the lounge offers video poker at the bar and also will be used for private, high-end blackjack and baccarat tournaments.

Fancy ice is a thing. Say it five times in a row and you’ll understand why. Okay, the latter isn’t serious, but fancy ice really is becoming a thing and bars are beginning to charge for it. Fancy ice has been popular in homes with whiskey drinkers for a few years now and you may have seen pictures of people using ice balls in their drinks. Now the trend is becoming popular at bars.
There are different types of fancy ice. Some are made with filtered water so that you don’t taste the additives or minerals in the local water supply while enjoying your drink. If people are spending $20 and up on a high end spirits, they may not mind a surcharge to keep the flavor pure. Others are flavored with a certain kind of alcohol to create a unique profile. Most are are distinctively shaped.
