With the return of beautiful spring Las Vegas weather, there’s no better place to grab a bite to eat or imbibe beautifully crafted beverages than outdoors in the fresh air. Here are 10 spots for great eats, prime people watching and an awesome atmosphere.


  1. Award-winning Chef Thomas Keller brings his modern French cuisine to Bouchon set in a sunlit bustling bistro on the patio overlooking the lush Venezia Pool Garden at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. Go for the classic Steak Frites or Moules au Safran. Looking for a bit more variety? Check out The Venetian’s three other restaurants with patio dining options.

  1. Carson Kitchen, located in the repurposed John E. Carson hotel Downtown, offers two outdoor dining options on the rooftop patio and the courtyard. You can’t sleep on dishes such as the famous Bacon Jam served with toasted baguettes or the Secret Sunday Chicken sandwich with spicy pickle aioli. 

  1. Get a table next to the large windows that open to get that patio dining feeling at GIADA at The Cromwell. Explore the extensive wine selection to find the perfect pairing whether you opt for the lemon spaghetti or the Veal Chop Saltimbocca.

  1. Bellagio Hotel & Casino is home LAGO by Julian Serrano where you can sit on the veranda and savor contemporary Italian delights made for sharing, such as risotto, pizzettes and antipasto. The unparalleled views of the Fountains of Bellagio aren’t a bad addition, either. Enjoy fine dining at Yellowtail, Spago by Wolfgang Puck and Prime Steakhouse for more outdoor seating options.

  1. Mon Ami Gabi’s open-air patio at Paris Las Vegas is perched directly off Las Vegas Boulevard. Perfect for stellar views of Strip happenings and people watching, the café offers French classics,  a signature rolling wine cart, and an incredible baked goat cheese, tomato sauce and garlic bread appetizer.

  1. For a fresh and fun casual meal, look (ha!) no further than Overlook Grill at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The open-air café is just steps away from the Boulevard Pool where you can take in the poolside scene while enjoying signature breakfast, brunch and lunch options along with handcrafted seasonal cocktails.

  1. Start your day (or afternoon) on the patio at Primrose at Park MGM. Enjoy breakfast or everyday brunch with dishes ranging from oatmeal and omelets to Mediterranean-style salads and French onion cheeseburgers. The lovely garden view gets that much better with all-you-can-drink sparkling rosé.

  1. Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa features a variety of al fresco dining options, ranging from casual settings like local favorites Yard House and Osteria Fiorella by celebrated chef Marc Vetri, to more upscale options such as Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill and T-Bones Chophouse.

  1. Get the night started right at Señor Frog’s Restaurant & Bar at Treasure Island Las Vegas. The party atmosphere, rocking hospitality and authentic Mexican food and drink goes together perfectly with the lively patio seating overlooking Siren’s Cove right off the Strip.

  1. Enjoy fine dining and entertainment in one location on the patio at SW Steakhouse (and sister restaurant Lakeside) at Wynn Las Vegas. Overlook the ethereal Lake of Dreams, which recently debuted 12 high-tech diverse new acts while relishing A5 Japanese Wagyu, dry-aged tomahawk chops or chile-rubbed double rib eyes. With eight open-air dining destinations, Wynn has every cuisine covered.
