I'd take you off the strip and to these bars:
The Beauty Bar (http://www.beautybar.com/)
The Double Down (www.doubledownsaloon.com)
The Art Bar (http://www.vegas.com/nightlife/bars/artbar.html)
The Artisan (http://www.theartisanhotel.com/)
and the only cool lounge on the strip......
The Peppermil (http://www.vegas.com/nightlife/bars/peppermill.html)

there's a good local place that has Guitar Hero tournaments on Wednesday night but other then that I'd just stick to those one's listed. Most of them will have a band or dj playing. I would suggest the Golden Palm Kareoke but it's closing on the 20th of Feb. :(


I almost forgot! Make the Rainbow (http://www.rainbowbarandgrilllv.com/home.html) a must!

scene as in the double down is very grungey and for rock, hardcore, rockabilly peeps. the others are more for the cool indie kids.

I almost forgot! for you brits go to the Crown and Anchor pub (http://www.vegas.com/nightlife/bars/crownandanchor.html)

all of them really. i'm a rockabilly/indie type of girl.

out of all the list, I'd say head downtown and check out the art bar and the beauty bar. especially the beauty bar. only go to the double down if you want to be around smelly band members and if you dont' want to go to the bathroom because believe me, you dont want to use theirs! haha.

hey all, just a reminder that we are keen for drinks this Wednesday in Vegas if anyone else is around and keen to kick things off with a few drinks (and what ever else might tickle our fancy on a night in Vegas). mozabilly54 has made some great suggestions for places to go so guess we will start with those (you still keen moza?? or have any other suggestions??)

Also for those aussies and kiwis (and i guess Turkish as well) Wednesday is ANZAC day so a few drinks to remember the fallen is in order!!

On some of the other threads 'Treasures' seems to be a popular choice.

But name the place and time and i'll be there!

Vegas all depends on what you want out of it. I live here. If you want the Coachella-ish type of indie scene, Mozabilly's suggestions are dead on. If you want the club scene, I'd suggest go to Tao @ Venetian, Pure @ Caesar's or Body English @ the Hard Rock.

As far as the bar scene goes, I'd suggest Rainbow Bar, which is across the street from the Hard Rock. I also like Firefly's which is a tappas bar. Crown & Anchor is a great place on Thursdays. Each club/bar has different days where it's the "it" place, so you just have to ask around. Paradise Cantina, which is also across from the Hard Rock in the same center as Rainbow Bar serves pretty good Mexican food. It's also a bar. It's a lot more chill than Rainbow Bar. The bartenders will talk to you and take shots w/ you.

Oh and if you're looking for a cheap meal, Mr. Lucky's at the Hard Rock has a "steak special" for after 11pm. It's not on the menu, so you just have to ask for it. It's about $7 and it includes salad, steak, shrimp, and mashed potatoes. It's not the world's best steak, but its fairly good for seven bucks.

Hope that helps.

Tao sucks.

There, I said it.

And Pure does as well. Places built and kept running for the ultra pretentious worthless assholes that could've met their end with Cho Seung-Hui's spree. Actually, the world would be a better place if he had spent the last moments of his life gunning people down in Tao and Pure instead of in a place of higher learning.

Someone needed to say it.

yeah, me (LV local) & dandapunk (from the UK) are supposed to meet up with a few others at Treasures for dinner (and the obligatory lap dance while our meal :P), then look for some watering hole to drink up. don't get me wrong, i like the dancing naked jiggling girls, but i'll probably see some of that at Coachella w/o having to pay $20/minute. I've only been to Tangerine & the Extremely Pretentious Tao:P on Wed nights. So where & what time is everyone meeting up?

Coachella crew should wear something so we all know who is who....have the word coachella on you somewhere? that works.
