Novelty Bars/restaurants

Hi guys,

Heading to Vegas in September and looking for some novelty bars or restaurants we can visit. Ideally, we dont want to go someone that's crazy busy. But heard there's Cleopatra's Barge, a restaurant where the walls move? Also, would like to head somewhere were we can relax and something a little different to your mad clubs.

Any recommendations on something a little different?

Capos restaurant is a cool 1930's style speakeasy - pretty fun and off the beaten path. Another one of my favorites is Frankies Tiki Room. Shhhh ... don't tell anyone!

Excellent thanks! Anything a little closer to the strip people?

At Mandalay Bay, there is Red Square with statue of Lenin in front, with a Minus 5 ice room. FUN

At Wynn, at dusk or later, go to the Lake of Dreams at the Parasole Down bar. A 3min funky light & water show each 1/2 hour. That is amazing.

$1.00 Michelobs at Casino Royale if you are walking by.

At TheHotel ... the bar at the top with outside seating. Go before it turns into night club at night, for a casual experience.

If you are up for a laugh, and don't take yourselves too seriously, Dicks Last Resort (at Excalibur) can be a giggle! Not everyone's cup of tea I know, but we thought it was funny!

The Peppermill & Fireside Lounge is fun. A very Vegas-y twist on a diner with the neon lounge in the back. It just has to be experienced to be understood, words can't explain it. It is on the strip, just south of The Riviera.

Is there a cover charge for the bar at the top of At TheHotel, Mandalay Bay?

I think if you go there when it's just "restuarant" experience, no.

But later in the evening there must be some kind of cover.
