Vegas has a great reputation for being the city where the party never stops, but what about when you're trying to get that party started? Once you've determined where you're going to spend the night partying, you still need to get yourself amped with a little pregaming. While you can just pregame in the room, there's really nothing like heading to a unique lounge or bar to start the eye-candy search, take some shots and get the fun started. We've listed five of the best places to pregame no matter where you end up afterwards and, if you decide to never leave any of these hotspots, well they can double as party destinations in and of themselves.
FIZZ Las Vegas Champagne Bar at Caesars Palace
Start the party by sipping on Champagne – a great way to get into the mood for poppin' bottles of Ace of Spades at the club later. At FIZZ, not only can you sip on an array of Champagne offerings, you can also get a little something to nosh on to help with all the booze you'll likely consume the remainder of the night. Snack on items like exotic caviars, Panini bites, canapés and more. The decor is classically chic, just as you would expect it to be with elegant lighting and a plethora of chandeliers hanging from the ceilings. It's the perfect place to chill before getting your glam on at the club.
ALIBI Cocktail Lounge at ARIA Resort & Casino
ALIBI is a fantastic start to the night and while it is open 24 hours a day, you can still get artistically creative cocktails and custom-made creations to get you into the mood for a night on the town. A gorgeous backdrop of luxurious decor including "imported granite" as well as "polished nickel & brass accents" helps you rendezvous with your crew at the bar while you take in the bounty of beautiful people sipping on delectable libations. Come get your #VegasAlibi for the night.
The Beatles REVOLUTION Lounge at The Mirage
A colorful and playful lounge, REVOLUTION, offers partyers a place to get in a few cocktails before heading to 1 OAK Nightclub or other neighboring nightclub venues for the main event. This lounge was the first 'nightlife experience' that was infused and designed with Cirque du Soleil in mind. Meaning it's a sensory experience in and of itself with either a live band or great DJ any night of the week. Solid cocktails and intense mood lighting get you geared up for the club big time.
The Terrace Bar at Paris Las Vegas
A gorgeous view overlooking The Strip, this venue is part of Chateau Nightclub and is a 10,000-square-foot balcony where you can snack on some grub and enjoy all-you-can-drink well cocktails/beer if you so choose to do some heavy pregaming. If not, you’ll find the usual fare of drinks available, but it’s the view that makes this bar stunning and really ready for party time.
The Bourbon Room at the Venetian
With rock music deriving mostly from the 80's generation, The Bourbon Room at the Venetian pays homage to the Sunset Strip nightclub from the classic musical "Rock of Ages." You've got 80's inspired decor in this massive lounge complete with a stage, a wide selection of bourbons and if you get tired of people watching, there's plenty of televisions offering viewings of classic music videos to take you back to a time when music videos where still relevant. Plus, the VJs offer live show vignettes that often require audience participation – perfect for a bachelorette party to get wild and crazy on stage.
