The only thing better than drinking a signature cocktail is enjoying it with a view. Rooftop bars in Las Vegas elevate your bar-hopping experience with breathtaking views of the Strip and beyond. During the day, people watch on the Strip or gaze at the mountains in the distance. At night, see the Las Vegas lights illuminating the dark desert. Whether dropping by for happy hour or arriving just in time to catch the sunset, these rooftop venues will soon be your favorites to grab a drink in ‘Sin City.’

108 Drinks at the Strat

It’s only right that the tallest freestanding observation tower in the US includes a rooftop bar to appreciate the eagle-eye view of the Strip. The Strat sits on the north end with a panoramic view of all of Las Vegas. Drink signature cocktails like the Green Tea Mule and Prosecco Slushie while taking in views of the entire Strip shimmering more than 1,000 feet below you.

The Strat is one of the most popular rooftop bars and is now included as part of the SkyPod experience—which requires admission to enter. It has indoor seating at the 107 View Lounge, a bar on the 108th floor, and an outdoor deck on the 109th floor. A few drinks might give you the courage to attempt the Big Shot drop tower and X-Scream thrill rides.

Sky High Happy Hour: Monday-Thursday 3pm-7pm

Skyfall Lounge at Delano

Make your grand entrance to the Skyfall Lounge on the exterior elevator, offering views while ascending to the 64th floor of the Delano Hotel. Hashtag #bestviewlv because this spot is known for excellent drinks and even better views.

Grab a spot on the outdoor patio to take in views stretching from the neighboring Luxor hotel all the way to silhouettes of the Sheep Mountains in the backdrop. Choose artisan cocktails categorized as Refreshing, Complex, or Boozey if you’re really trying to take the edge off. Visit during golden hour to catch the sunset and hang around until 9pm, when it features a live DJ spinning House mixes for an upbeat lounge atmosphere.

Happy Hour: Daily from 3:30pm-7:30pm

Fountain Room at Mandalay Bay

The Fountain Room at Mandalay Bay isn’t just a rooftop bar but an upscale rooftop experience designed for those looking for an elegant place to start (or end) their night. So, get dressed in your best business casual and head up to the 63rd floor for views, drinks, and vibes.

Home to some of the best mixologists in Sin City, you’ll get to savor specialty cocktails like the Cucumber Zen, the Ginza Fashioned, or the Good Karma Margarita. The outdoor balcony seating area literally puts you right next to the Mandalay Bay sign!

This lounge turns into a nightclub after 10pm and is open until 1am.

Nibbles & Sip Happy Hour: Sunday-Thursday from 5-8pm

Legacy Bar at Circa

Give a toast to the founding fathers of Las Vegas at The Legacy Bar at Circa, the newest rooftop bar to arrive in Las Vegas. After all, they’re who to thank for the unmatched rooftop view at this venue.

Legacy Bar is located on the 60th floor of the Circa Resort. It’s located near downtown to give guests a sweeping view of the entire Strip and more from the outdoor patio. The space features busts of iconic Las Vegas figures like Steve Wynn and Howard Hughes. Also, a case holds 1,000lbs of gold bars with a real-time price display (worth more than $1 Million!).

The drink experience is as legendary as the city it represents. Signature cocktails like the Nevadan are a local rendition of the Manhattan cocktail. Or, for those with more personalized tastes, order a Build-Your-Own Fashioned.

Hosts an Elevated Spirits Craft Cocktail Course for Happy Hour: Fridays and Saturdays from 2-4pm

Beer Park in Paris

Rethink your idea of a rooftop bar in Las Vegas. Instead of sky-high views, Beer Park is more grounded to immerse you in the pulsating energy of the Strip. Located at the Paris Las Vegas Resort, this second-floor rooftop deck sits right next to the Eiffel Tower, with a perfect view up and down Las Vegas Boulevard.

The Beer Park Experience is a casual rooftop venue designed for socializing, or people watching, and watching sports (it even hosts ESPN’s SportsCenter). It’s right across the street from the Bellagio for a perfect view of the Water Fountain Show every 15-30 minutes. You’ll never run out of options to drink with specialty craft cocktails made to order and more than 100 beers available—get a beer flight to sample a few of them!

Happy Hour: Daily from 5-7pm

Ghostbar at Palms

After disappearing for a few years, Ghostbar has reappeared once again at the Palms Hotel to re-introduce guests to a Vegas rooftop staple. It reopened in 2022 with a newly updated design full of sophisticated style.

A private elevator lifts you to the 55th floor, where you’ll have views of the most notable landmarks, including the Strip, Allegiant Stadium, and Downtown. The chic space invites guests to dress to impress for a classic evening of drinks and views. The unique menu enchants you with themed drinks like Ghostling, Witches Brew, and Crystal Ball Cocktail. How’s that for spirits?!

Happy Hour: Daily from 4-7pm

Allē on 66 at Resorts World

The classiness of Allē on 66 is unmatched by any other rooftop bar in Vegas. Everything is about tasteful style, from the decor to the dress code to the signature cocktails.

Located on the 66th floor of the Conrad Hotel, Allē on 66 is an elevated experience with an attached high-roller table room. The two-drink minimum is easy to meet when considering cocktail options like Starstruck, Jade Palace, Lavender Haze, or the tasty Cookie Butter Espresso Martini. It features live entertainment with DJs on select nights and smooth sounds from live violinists and saxophonists on others.

Waldorf Astoria Skybar

This honorable mention isn’t quite on the rooftop. However, the floor-to-ceiling windows at the Skybar still provide one of the best views of the Strip while enjoying cocktails. And besides, the 23rd floor of the Waldorf Astoria is still high enough to make you feel like you’re hovering over the Strip.

The Waldorf Astoria is centrally-located, giving an immersive view nearly eye level with the Eiffel Tower, and surrounded by iconic hotels like the Aria, Planet Hollywood Resort, and The Cosmopolitan. The laid-back atmosphere is a casual space to grab drinks in the day or night. It has Vegas-themed cocktails like The Strip, Sinatra, The Waldorf, and the Pear of Aces.

This is one of the hidden gems on the Vegas Strip, with fewer tourists than other rooftop bars.

Rooftop bars in Vegas are one of the best ways to experience the magic of Sin City. Skyhigh towers offer panoramic views accompanied by signature cocktails unique to each bar. Try them all out and discover your favorite drink and viewpoint in Las Vegas.
