5 rooftop bars in Las Vegas

Take in the sights of the Strip from these must-visit spots above the city. | By Suzie Dundas | March 8, 2022

Las Vegas truly shines at night (literally and figuratively), and watching those neon lights glow come sunset is one of the best experiences in the city. Snag a table at one of these epic rooftop bars in Las Vegas, and you'll have a front-row seat to the action. Beyond all that glitters, get ready to make plans, memories — and maybe reservations, so you don't miss out on:

  • The action: Never miss a play at an epic rooftop sports bar

  • The music: Find your flow at one of the best DJ-led rooftop bars in Vegas

  • The NYC vibes: Catch Vegas’ take on the Big Apple at this speakeasy and bar

See and be seen

If you're in the city to have a classic "what happens in Vegas" experience, book a table at the OMNIA Terrace, one of Las Vegas' best rooftop bars and best nightclubs. With everything from celebrity appearances to guest DJs spinning thumping music to the crème de la crème of Vegas fashion.

OMNIA Terrace is one of the trendiest Sin City rooftops and offers an escape from the more crowded indoor nightclub area. If you can, book one of the outside VIP booths. That way you and your crew will have a place to socialize in-between DJ sets and you won't have to elbow your way to the busy bar every time you want a drink.

Tailgate on the roof

If you're in Vegas to take advantage of all things sports — whether that means rooting on your favorite professional team or watching your alma mater make it rain come March — the best rooftop bar in Las Vegas for sports fans is Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas. It has great views of the Bellagio Fountains and more than 100 draft and bottle beers, plus specialty cocktails, wine and more.

There’s an extensive grill menu, a low-key dress code and massive lawn games. Plus, there are more than 75 high-definition TVs, including towers with multiple screens on either side of the bar, so you'll never miss a game. It's a rooftop tailgate, Vegas-style.

Plan the ultimate Las Vegas soiree

Don't make the mistake of thinking the best rooftop bars in Las Vegas are just for nightclubbers and bachelorette parties - SkyBar at Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas is a particular favorite for the latter, combining inventive cocktails with sleek surrounds (and an unforgettable look at the Strip as a bonus!). One of the roomiest rooftops on the Las Vegas Strip is the Rose Rooftop at Resorts World Las Vegas. It covers 24,000 square feet and has an excellent view of downtown from its vantage point on the resort’s southeast wing.

It's the best place in town for a luxe rooftop wedding, office party or any other special event. Best of all, the colossal Resorts World complex has everything your guests need. Foodies will especially want to consider having an event here since two of the country's most esteemed chefs currently lead the culinary team. And since Resorts World Las Vegas offers three hotels, the Strip's largest pool complex, and more than 100,000 square feet of casino space, your guests will have plenty to fill their free time, beyond living it up on the rooftop.

Take a bite of the Big Apple

Commonwealth is dark, romantic and moody — but head outside to the rooftop bar and you'll feel like you're hanging out on the roof of a midtown apartment building back in New York. Add in some music courtesy of a DJ or band, and it’ll feel like that building is having a hip party and you managed to snag the golden ticket.

You'll want to make table reservations for the outside spaces, especially on the weekends, as the venue gets very lively. Reservations are pricey, but you get a bar credit back in the same amount to spend on creative cocktails; order the "the line ride" if you're planning on a wild night. One note: the rooftop bar doesn't usually open until around 10 p.m.

Oh, and Commonwealth has something else going for it: a hidden speakeasy. Dress to impress, ask around and you'll figure out how to get in — it's one of Vegas' worst-kept secrets.

Channel your inner secret agent

Take the glass elevator 64 stories up to arrive at Skyfall Lounge, the elegant rooftop bar at Delano Las Vegas. Subtly inspired by the James Bond film with the same name, it's the best rooftop bar in Vegas for a glass of Champagne while you vibe to low-key jams. It gets busy — savvy travelers know it's one of the most sought-after places in the city to start your evening — so expect to wait for a table if you show up too late. With rich, deep colors, metallic accents, and a hint of mid-century-meets-modern decor, it's also one of the most unique rooftop bars in Vegas.The stunning views are just the stuffed olive on top.

Make memories on a Las Vegas rooftop

You won’t soon forget taking in Las Vegas’ beauty — and the city’s signature energy — from any of these incredible rooftop bars. Get ready to make memories that will have you heading back to Sin City time and time again.
