Le Central At Paris To Get A Swank New Look

Where: 3655 Las Vegas Boulevard [map], 89109
January 13, 2015 at 11:39 AM | by | Comments (7)

Details are light aside from the headline (and, when we say "light," we mean non-existent), but Le Central at Paris is in for a complete redesign.

Renderings reveal the casino bar's current look, featuring ornate ironwork and a huge column-supported dome (shown above), will give way to a modern Parisian design (spitballin' here on potential press release copy) boasting unrestricted views of the action surrounding it, comfortable bar and lounge seating, playfully oversized lamps, and the eye-catching whimsy of twinkling chandeliers that will seem to float in midair. (Feel free to use any of that, Caesars.)

Layover Bar Now Serving At McCarran Airport

Where: 5757 Wayne Newton Blvd. [map]
January 5, 2015 at 2:02 PM | by | Comments (6)

It may not look like much (read: it doesn't look like much), but a new watering hole has launched at McCarran Airport.

The Layover Bar opened on New Year's Eve and is located on the esplanade of Terminal 1. Look for it on the second level before travelers pass through security. An airport official tells us the lounge specializes in Bloody Marys and margs "with a modern twist." It's open daily from 8 a.m. until 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until midnight on Friday and Saturday.

Best New Bar Of 2014

December 30, 2014 at 5:00 PM | by | Comment (1)

It's time for the fifth annual VegasChatter Awards! Today, we begin bringing you the best and worst of the year. All of our picks are based on what we've personally experienced in Vegas over 2014 -- the good, the bad and the mind-boggling.

The Las Vegas Strip got a handful of new watering holes in 2014 and several really distinguished themselves with creative craft cocktails or a fun ambiance, sometimes both. In a world where “handcrafted” and “artisanal” are getting trite and often misused, it’s nice to find a few spots doing it right.

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.

iBar At Rio Adds Video Poker

Where: 3700 West Flamingo Rd. [map], 89103
November 24, 2014 at 7:27 PM | by | Comments (5)

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.

When Hungry At Aria, Consider Its New Bar

Where: 89158
November 18, 2014 at 7:00 PM | by | Comment (1)

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.')

Burgers At The Game Were What We Expected

Where: 9090 Alta Drive [map], 89145
November 18, 2014 at 2:43 PM | by | Comments (0)

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.
