Evoke Yesterday’s Vegas, Today
A casino lounge may be the quintessential Vegas experience, especially when you can catch the up-and-coming talent free of charge. At Rhythm and Riffs at Mandalay Bay, settle into a comfortable seat with one of its signature cocktails while enjoying a variety of musical styles, including its Friday night event, Nashville Unplugged. Or head downtown and embody the Las Vegas of yesteryear at the swanky Rush Lounge at Golden Nugget. Located in the middle of the casino’s action, the intimate space features live music each night, with a rotating mix of lounge acts and rock bands, all of which can be enjoyed with a creative drink in hand.
Find Yourself in an Entertainment Wonderland
The center Strip locale, Harrah’s Las Vegas, has several ways to enjoy free live music any night of the week. For a high-energy street party that features bands, DJs and flair bartenders, Carnaval Court is like nowhere else in the world. When you want to be in on the action, head inside Harrah’s to keep the party going at the Piano Bar. Come for the dueling pianos, stay for the eccentric showmanship, jazz acts, rousing karaoke and celebrity impersonators. Each night there’s something new to experience and a different way to be a part of the show.
Get Your Rock On
No time at Red Rock Casino and Resort is complete without a stop at the Rocks Lounge. With its ample dance floor and lush seating, there’s no excuse not to let loose. From familiar hits by popular cover bands, high energy DJs keeping the crowd moving to gut busting comedians, there’s never a dull moment.
Las Vegas has so many ways to be entertained, you won’t have to look far to find your next over-the-top adventure, and if you pick right, it won’t cost you a thing.
