There's life, and then there's the champagne life, at least according to Ne-Yo. Laguna Champagne Bar is one of the best spots in Vegas to get a variety of champagne experiences. Next to the Palazzo gaming floor, the vibe is a little more relaxed compared to the clubs, though the action gets a little more exciting when a deejays around on weekend nights. There's plenty of champagne by the glass, including popular picks like Krug and Veuve Cliquot, and some more obscure glasses like Ruinart Blanc de Blanc ($25). Champagne cocktails include the Flower Eclipse made with St. Germain and Moet et Chandon Nectar; and Bubblicious, made with Campari, orange juice, and Moet.
There are reasonably priced half-bottles like 2000 Perrier-Jouet Fleur de Champagne ($108). And then there's a massive bottle list that starts with all the non-vintage picks from the major champagne houses, such as Gosset Grand Rose and Armand de Brignac. It goes onto some recent vintage bottles like 1998 Taittinger Comte de Champagne ($340) and 1995 Salon le Mesnil ($1,500). Finally, there's a few larger format bottles, though not as decadent as what you'll find in the clubs. Think 1998 Dom Perignon Rose ($1,300), 2002 Cristal ($1,100) and Methuselah of Veuve Cliquot for $1,000, which is equal to eight standard size bottles. Definitely good for more than few hours of champagne.
