The Best View in Las Vegas

May 20th, 2009

Las Vegas is a city full of lights and entertainment. The hotels on the Strip are famous world wide but one hotel in particular offers something that the others simply cannot compete with. It’s not price nor amenities, it’s simply the location and height of the Stratosphere Hotel that will give you the best view overlooking the city. I found this image while Stumbling through some travel websites to prove the point:

    Dresden Room

    August 8th, 2008

    Dresden Room

    The Dresden Room is a lounge that serves Italian food, has a night club with live music and has been featured in many movies. Motion pictures Swingers and That Thing You Do were filmed in the Dresden Room along with many others. The bar’s blue glasses hold the house classic, Blood and Sand which is a space age Margarita, a must try. All of the Martinis and Manhattans are also good. The most recommended wine can be found on Dresden’s 33-bin wine list. Owners and founders Marty and Elayne perform Monday through Saturday from 9:00 pm to 1:00 am.

    Tips

    • There is no street parking so you will need to pull into the alley behind the club and valet your vehicle for $3.50
    • THE Hollywood place to be seen
    • There is never a cover charge, if the place is absolutely packed there might be a two drink minimum
    • More affordable than Perino’s or Chasen’s
