Las Vegas’s lights can be overwhelming when you’re walking or driving down the Strip, but when you get the chance to see them from way up high—50 stories or more—the city’s lights are even more dazzling. Rooftop bars in Las Vegas are not generally on the actual roof of a building, but their birds-eye, panoramic views make those last couple of floors a moot point. Several bars and nightclubs offer striking view of Las Vegas, but here are a few you may want to visit if you’d like to see the city from above:
Ghostbar at the Palms has both a striking interior design and an incredible outside patio area with an amazing view of Las Vegas. The glass panel in the outside patio area is either cool or terrifying, depending on how you feel about heights.
VooDoo at the Rio offers an incredible view and, like Ghostbar, it features an outside area. Unlike many of the clubs on the Strip, you’re unlikely to find a big crowd or long lines here.
Mix at THEhotel is stylish, hip, trendy, and offers a balcony view from the 64th floor.
Moon is at the Palms, like Ghostbar, and describes itself as “an exclusive penthouse nightclub.” This chic club can be hard to get into.
