4321 W. Flamingo Rd., Las Vegas, NV, 89103
Type: Clubs And Lounges
The stunning Ghostbar feels as if it's hovering over Vegas, keeping itself far apart from the whirling chaos below. Located high upon the 55th floor of the swanky Palms, this cutting edge club boasts an unbelievable view of the glittering Strip and much of the Las Vegas valley.
But truly, Ghostbar offers more than a spectacular view -- it's an absolutely fun and super-hip place to chill in style, enjoy a cocktail and listen to some great rock and trip-hop music. The room is a model of geometry and design. It is perfectly rectangular and -- after a recent $50 million renovation -- is decked out with Murano-style chandeliers, plush banquettes and porcelain tile flooring. And the savvy clientele lounging there is as cool as the decor.
Not only does Ghostbar offer a sweeping 180-degree vantage point from its sheer windows, but you can head outside onto the spacious patio to enjoy an even wider view and the Vegas night air. The patio area extends straight out the front of the club and there are two bars on either side. There are a few spots to sit outside, but the crowd mostly comes to stand, mix and mingle.
You'll feel totally in touch with Vegas' slick vibe when you're standing on the transparent glass section of Ghostbar's patio, looking straight down to the pool area hundreds of feet below. It's vertigo in the very best sense. It's thrilling. Warning: if you're afraid of heights, you might choose to indulge in one of Ghostbar's cocktails before you try this.
Ghostbar is a small, intimate club and it's immensely popular with the 20- and 30-something crowds. Get there early or buy a nightclub line pass if you don't want to wait for your chance to chill.
