Incredible Vegas Views

9 Picture Perfect Vegas Locations

Las Vegas has a skyline like no other city. The Strip's neon glow can be seen from across the valley. And with views this spectacular, it'd be a shame not to feast your eyes on the best places to catch a glimpse,.

1. The Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay

About

You’ll find that this lounge is a little more unique than some of the others you might visit. The Tibetan-themed venue is decorated with lush carpets and Eastern artifacts. It’s even known to host burlesque dancers on occasion.

Venue Type: Lounge

Type of View

Located on the 43rd floor of the hotel, this lounge offers a view of the entire Strip from the farthest point south. Standing on the balcony, you’ll get a great view of the MGM Grand, all the way to the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas, and everything in-between. It’s one of the best places to take a photo with the entire Strip in the background.

2. Hyde Bellagio

About

Hyde Bellagio is one of the more decadent places on this list, mainly because of the ambiance. It’s said that it draws its mystery from having been an Italian-themed villa for a famed artist, complete with marble floors, chandeliers and even a Tuscan-themed garden that leads straight to the outdoor terrace, which frames the famous Fountains of Bellagio.

Venue Type: Lounge/Nightclub

Type of View

This venue offers an up close and personal view of the Bellagio fountains. If you’re standing close enough to the edge, you may be able to feel a few drops of water.

3. The Eiffel Tower Experience at Paris Las Vegas

About

The Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas might not be as tall as the one in Paris, France, but it’s certainly worth the trip to the observation tower.

The attraction provides guests with an interactive tablet that allows them to see what it would be like to be standing on the tower as though they were actually in France by holding the tablet over the city skyline.

Venue Type: Attraction

Type of View

360-degree view, 460 feet in the air, with ambassadors to help point out various Vegas attractions.

4. Maverick Helicopter Tours

About

This experience is fairly self-explanatory. You'll ride in a Maverick helicopter high above the Las Vegas Valley, seeing the city from several unique vantage points. 

Venue Type: Tours

Type of View

It’s one of the only ways you can see a full 360-degree view of the entire valley. That alone makes it worth the ride.

5. Top of the World at The Stratosphere

About

Top of the World is known as one of the most romantic restaurants in the city. It offers an intimate dining setting paired with an extravagant view of the entire city, all encompassed in a 360-degree revolving frame. Yes, that’s right, this restaurant allows diners the opportunity to see Las Vegas in its entirety if they’re able to stay for at least 80 minutes, the time needed for one full rotation.

Venue Type: Restaurant

Type of View

It might surprise you, but this is the only revolving restaurant in Las Vegas. Located 844 feet in the air, you’re bound to get a great view of the city with its massive floor-to-ceiling windows.

6. Mandarin Bar at Mandarin Oriental

About

This is a bar you don’t want to miss out on; offering an intimate appeal in an upscale setting, enjoying a cocktail here will make you feel like you’ve become an elite among the Vegas crowds. The chic design and color pallet go hand in hand with the dimly lit ambiance. The bar even offers handcrafted cocktails, ingeniously designed by its own team of mixologists.

Venue Type: Lounge

Type of View

Due to the central location of Mandarin Oriental, Mandarin Bar offers patrons a direct view of the Las Vegas skyline from within the skyline itself. But depending on where you sit, you can either get an impressive view of the south end facing toward New York-New York, or the north end, toward Planet Hollywood.

7. Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

About

You won’t find a venue quite like the Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan anywhere else in Las Vegas. It’s a space that doubles as a pool and event venue. During the summer, guests can hang out and relax at the pool, but when it’s not being used as a pool, the hotel turns it into a concert venue and even an ice-skating rink.

Venue Type: Pool/Concert Venue

Type of View

The location of the pool, which was ingeniously planned, is positioned at eye level with all of the surrounding hotels. It’s here where you can catch the best view of the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas, without having to look up at it.

8. Ghostbar at The Palms

About

Ghostbar may be a Vegas nightclub, but it doesn’t come with the feeling of being too crowded due to its spacious outdoor terrace. After being remodeled in 2013, the bar’s new design gives it a chic and sophisticated modern edge with glass chandeliers; black, white and fuchsia décor; and steel-framed accents.

And unlike other clubs, it offers a champagne happy hour from 8-10 p.m.

Venue Type: Nightclub

Type of View

Situated just west of the iconic Strip, club-goers are able to view the entire Las Vegas valley and, of course, the Strip, with a direct view of Bellagio and Caesars Palace.
