Happy Hours With a View


Level 107 at Stratosphere

People visit Las Vegas for the lights, but glittering panorama is invisible from a windowless casino or lounge. Still, there are spots in Sin City where you can drink in the view and a cocktail—both of which go down smoother during happy hour.

Mix Lounge sits atop Delano and offers 15 percent off drinks and small plates from 5-7 p.m. The sleek, deep-toned room is a chic backdrop for city lights, while elegant libations—such as the Poire Impériale and Marcel’s Fizz, as well as half a dozen craft beers—are an excellent way to end your day or begin your evening.

Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Harrah’s features center-Strip views and two daily happy hours from 4:30-5:30 p.m. and 9:30-10:30 p.m. Food includes the prime burger and crab BLT, while cocktails tend toward the sweet side—pomegranate martinis and blueberry mojitos—but there’s also a selection of wine and beer.

Oscar’s view down Fremont Street has been partially obscured by Slotzilla, but there’s still some sparkle to be seen. The bar offers half-price drinks from 4-6 p.m. every day, from the vodka-Aperol Red Light District and bourbon-based Consigliere to former Mayor Oscar Goodman’s signature Bombay Sapphire martini.

The Valley’s loftiest spot is Level 107 Lounge atop the Stratosphere. Early happy hour runs from 4-7 p.m. with half-price appetizers and two-for-one cocktails. The late-night happy hour offers half-price apps from 10:30 p.m.-1 a.m. and two-for-one drinks from 1-4 a.m. StratosphereHotel.com.

If you want too see the whole Strip, the High Roller will take you on a 360-degree ride. You never have to leave your seat during Happy Half-Hour, when your ticket includes a 30-minute ride with an open bar. The cabins roll daily from noon-1 a.m. Friday-Sunday. Caesars.com/HighRoller.
