Hi Chowhounders- I am headed to Vegas in a couple of weeks to spend the weekend reconnecting with an old high school friend...we are planning to make the round of the various chowhound-approve restaurants, about which much has been written on this site.
But I am hoping the accumulated wisdom of the people here can be bent towards helping us out with another challenge -- where are the best places in Vegas to drink?
My friend and I are both married and not looking for a pickup scene -- just a couple of cool bars in nice settings that will either give us a good cocktail or provide a good beer selection, and won't hit us with ridiculous cover charges or long lines to get in. Is this possible in Vegas? Would it be pushing things beyond reasonability to also ask about a place with a nice view?
Thanks for your help!
