Fire, water and lots of neon make the Fireside Lounge stand out—but it’s the cocktails and the people who drink them that make this place really interesting.

With low lighting, fake foliage and mirrored tiling galore, the room is the perfect balance of ’70s-style cheese and sex appeal—and you can’t get more Las Vegas than that.
