Fortunately, there’s no shortage of rooftop patios in Downtown Las Vegas, on the Strip, and beyond for open-air dancing, drinking and mingling beneath the neon-tinged sky. From elegant lounges tailor-made for sequined dresses and champagne to laid-back spots where friends can gather over pitchers of beer, these rooftop patios set the stage for a perfect night in Las Vegas.Read More
15 Rooftop Patios to Explore in Las Vegas
Sky-high Champagne and neon views await
1. Legacy Club
Las Vegas, NV 89101
Customers take a dedicated elevator to the 60th floor to reach the Legacy Club, an ode to many of Vegas’ founding pioneers and icons, at Circa. The 8,400-square-foot lounge features fire pits and banquettes on the outdoor terrace. The lounge offers a sunset package for $75 per person that includes outdoor fire pit seating for two to 12 people, two specialty cocktails, a Champagne toast at sunset, and views of the skyline. All Sunset Packages begin 30 minutes before sunset and can be booked online.
2. Inspire Nightclub
Located right on the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street, Inspire is a millennial-focused rooftop lounge with DJs and bottle service.
Commonwealth’s rooftop patio is worthy of a visit based on location alone. The trendy bar, which is poised at the epicenter of the Fremont East District, offers sweeping views of the Fremont Street Experience, the glowing pink El Cortez sign, and the mountains in the distance.
4. Carson Kitchen
Carson Kitchen’s 2017 expansion brought with it a cozy rooftop patio that reflects the neighborhood charm of the Fremont East location. Diners can settle in beneath the twinkling string lights above and enjoy the restaurant’s signature reimagined comfort food menu, which includes crispy chicken skins with smoked honey, tempura green beans, a creative cocktail list, plus beer and wine.
5. Oak & Ivy
Regularly heralded as one of the top whiskey bars in the country, this Downtown Container Park mainstay features a carefully curated whiskey list, plus barrel-aged cocktails, hard cider, and seasonal selections (non-whiskey drinkers will still find plenty to love on the menu here too). An inviting, elevated patio space makes for the perfect date-night spot.
6. Downtown Terrace
The combination of patio seating and bottomless mimosas is an inspired one, and that’s exactly what brunch-goers will find at Downtown Terrace. This Downtown Container Park restaurant offers sunny views of the shopping and dining area, plus monkey bread, crab Benedict, avocado toast, and a choice of bottomless mimosas, Bellinis, bloody Maries, or wine.
7. Public School 702
This dog-friendly Downtown Summerlin patio is home to gastropub fare including crispy buffalo cauliflower, bacon cheddar tots and an every-day happy hour that includes prosciutto and pineapple flatbread, street tacos plus $5 wine and beer. Craft beer is the focus here, but cocktails with fresh ingredients, like lavender and blackberries, are a great choice for outdoor dining.
Head to the 10th floor of the Venetian’s Venezia Tower for a secluded rooftop patio at Bouchon by Thomas Keller. While diners can find a patio that is hidden from the Strip, it is surrounded by the Venezia pool gardens and the fountains for brunch or dinner.
9. Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Tequila Bar
Chayo’s rooftop patio serves up views of the largest observation wheel in the world, plus always-entertaining people watching on the Linq Promenade below. The best time to enjoy this Mexican restaurant’s rooftop patio is during happy hour every Monday through Thursday from 2 to 6 p.m., which features discounted margaritas, beer plus mini nachos, street tacos, and asada fries.
10. Omnia Nightclub
Omnia Nightclub at Caesars Palace may have gotten a lot of attention for its mesmerizing, 22,000-pound, robotic chandelier, but the rooftop terrace is also worthy of praise. Omnia returned as a lounge during the pandemic. Customers can head to the terrace area with its views of the Las Vegas Strip on Fridays and Saturdays from 10:30 p.m. until late for those 21 and older. For reservations, go online or call 702-785-6200.
11. Voodoo Rooftop Nightclub
After braving the nearby zipline, Rio visitors can head to VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub for celebratory drinks. The small rooftop space features DJs and the lounge’s famous Witch Doctor cocktail — a goblet-sized drink that owes its smoke to dry ice. Head here for asunset happy hour daily from 6 to 8 p.m.
12. Drai's Beachclub & Nightclub
Dayclub by day, nightclub by night, Drai’s is a high-energy destination for rooftop fun. The rooftop space reopened at the Cromwell with an adults-only pool every Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the rooftop at The Cromwell. So far, the mini concerts from big-name rappers have not returned. Drai’s Beach at Night also returned on Friday and Saturday nights for night swimming.
13. Beer Park
Rooftop patios in Las Vegas are often associated with getting dressed up and enjoying fancy cocktails. For a laid-back alternative, beer lovers can head to Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas. The open-air space here offers giant Jenga, football viewing parties, draft and bottled beer plus soft pretzels, bratwurst, and smoked brisket sliders. The views of the Bellagio Fountains aren’t bad either.
Topgolf at MGM Grand is more than just a place to hit a few balls. It’s also a great rooftop space for enjoying specialty doughnuts in the morning, wings in the afternoon, burgers at night plus sangria, beermosas, frozen Red Bull, and spiked kombucha all day.
15. Foundation Room
Whether it’s pre-dinner drinks or late-night debauchery, Foundation Room delivers with style, sophistication and stunning views of the Strip from the 63rd floor of Mandalay Bay. The spacious terrace here features a rooftop happy hour Sunday through Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m. that includes tempura cauliflower, short rib poutine, plus beer, wine, and spirit specials. Diners who stick around later in the evening can enjoy DJs, dancing and views of the neon landscape.
