Aalto Lounge - Gay Night Aalto Portland - Belmont Street Bars - Hawthorne Nightlife - Aalto Gay Sunday Nights - gay-friendly Portland photos
In the vibrant Belmont Street area of eastern Portland, the Aalto Lounge is one of several gay-friendly but mixed hangouts in this part of town catering to a decidedly artsy, singularly unconventional crowd. The bar takes its name and aesthetica inspiration from Finnish designer Alvar Aalto, its interior feeling very minimalist chic. An excellent spot to meet a friend for a glass of wine before dinner along nearby Hawthorne Boulevard, or perhaps pre-clubbing downtown. Page 3.

CC's Portland - CC's Old Town - Slaughters Gay Bar Portland - Downtown Portland Gay Clubs
One of Old Town Portland's long-running stalwarts in the arena of gay nightlife, CC Slaughters is actually two bars in one - the main nightclub, CC Slaughters is a dark, rambling space with a small but potent dance floor, loud music, and a fun, mixed crowd of revelers - some of the city's best DJs spin tunes here. Adjacent is the the swanky Rainbow Room Lounge, a mod, elegant space that's perfect for sipping a sophisticated cocktail and carrying on a conversation.

Doug Fir Lounge - Doug Fir Music Club - Doug Fir Portland - gay-friendly Portland clubs - gay music scene Portland - gay-friendly Jupiter Hotel
A darling among Portland's many hip music clubs, the retro-chic Doug Fir Lounge and Restaurant (830 E. Burnside St., 503-231-WOOD) is attached to the similarly hipster-infested Jupiter Hotel, several blocks east of Burnside Bridge. The dark and sexy basement lounge presents many of the nation's top alternative acts, including quite a few queer favorites (Bob Mould, Bitch & The Exciting Conclusion, Ferron, and plenty of others). Upstairs, the restaurant serves extremely tasty mod-American fare. Page 8.

Seattle Manray closed - Manray Capitol Hill - Manray Pine Street - Seattle Gay Bars - R Place Gay Club - Manray Gay Seattle - Gay Video Bars -
The sleek and contemporary Manray Video Bar was one of gay Seattle's hottest destinations for socializing and schmoozing, until, very sadly, it closed to make way for a condo development late in 2007. It was nearly across the street from larger and longer-running R Place Bar and Grill, which remains popular. Page 16.

Openly gay mixologist Lucy Brennan, the charming owner of Mint Bistro and the adjacent 820 Lounge, has become celebrated internationally for her distinctive cocktail concoctions, from the Bella (blackberry puree, vodka and lemo-lime served in a sugared martini glass) to the strangely delicious Avocado Daiquiri. Here at her restaurant-bar complex in Portland's up-and-coming Eliot neighborhood, you'll encounter a mixed crowd of scenesters and bon vivants enjoying superb food and drink. Page 9.

Scandals Gay Bar Portland - Scandals on Stark Street - Scandals Portland Oregon - gay Oregon bars - gay Portland photo gallery - Stark Street photos
With a refreshingly cheesy name that hints at its age (it opened in a different space along Stark Street in 1979), Scandals moved into a prettier space a few years back and morphed from semi-tragically sullen locals joint to genuinely festive and friendly video cruise bar. It's a relatively intimate spot with a friendly staff, and the crowds here range from sparse early in the week to packed to the rafters on weekends. Page 12.

Boyztown Denver - Boystown Denver - Boyztown gay bar - Boyztown South Broadway - Denver gay strip bars - gay strippers pictures - gay dive bars pics
It's dive-y, cruise-y, slightly raunchy, and plenty of fun: BoyzTown is a highly popular part of the gruff but lovable South Broadway gay scene, a neighbor of such standbys as The Compound/Basix and BJ's Carousel. Part of the excitement (or, at the very least, amusement) is that BoyzTown employs a sizable stable of gregarious strippers and go-go boys, who perform each evening to the delight of sauced and saucy patrons. As gay strip bars go, the crowd is remarkably age-diverse and friendly. Page 4.

Charlie's Bar Denver - Charlie's Denver - Denver Country Western Bars - Gay Country Western Bars - Colorado Gay Rodeo Association
Part of a franchise of gay country-western bars with additional branches in Chicago, Phoenix, and Las Vegas, Charlie's Denver opened in 1981 on the site of what is now Ms. C's lesbian bar, and has been at its current location since 1989. Home bar of the Colorado Gay Rodeo Association and a great place for country-line dancing and two-stepping, Charlie's also has a standard disco (Club Charlie's) playing current techno, hip-hop, and dance tunes. Page 8.

Compound Denver - Compound Gay Bar - Denver Compound South Broadway - Basix Denver - Basix Gay Bar - Denver Men's Cruising - South Broadway Gay Bars
A favorite gay hangout for more than a decade, the Denver Compound/Basix bar is a fixture along South Broadway, with its several GBLT nightspots and businesses. The bar draws a mostly male, fairly cruisy bunch of all ages and styles, from collegiate twinks to gruff leather-and-Levi's types. It's especially popular on Sunday afternoons, when the $5 beer busts draw big crowds. Page 10.

Although it's woefully far from downtown (about 5 miles east via ticky-tacky, slow-as-molasses Colfax Avenue), Ms C's deserves kudos as a low-frills, no-nonsense lesbian bar (and a bit of a dive) that has managed to remain popular for decades. It draws a mostly lesbian crowd (in fact, men - gay or otherwise - tend to be very much the exception). There's a nice big patio, super-cheap drinks, a rocking juke box, and the usual bar games (pool, darts, and such). Page 12.

Tracks Denver - Denver Gay Discos - Tracks Dance Club - Tracks Gay Club - Denver Gay Nightlife - Denver 18-and-over Nights - Tracks Walnut Street
The definitive Denver gay dance club, Tracks is a huge, eclectic, and enormously fun spot in an industrial area northeast of downtown (it's safe, but a bit of a haul - best to take a cab or drive there). The club is open every Thursday (18-and-over), the first Friday of each month for the city's hottest lesbian party, and every Saturday, when revelers of all types pile in for pulsing music in two different dance areas (one current stuff, the other more retro). Page 6.

Amerika Buenos Aires - Amerika gay disco - Gay Buenos Aires nightclubs - gay nightlife Argentina - gay Amerika dance club - Alsina - Glam - Angel's
The largest gay club in the city, Amerika (Gascon 1040) is on the edge of Palermo in the Almagro neighborhood. This place packs in huge (as in 2,000 revelers) crowds and is open Thursday through Sunday nights. There are multiple levels to dance and observe the scene, and Amerika draws a nice mix of sweaty club kids, stylish lesbians, heteros who love the music and vibe, and...well...pretty much everybody who's anybody in gay Buenos Aires. Page 2.

Bach Bar Buenos Aires - Buenos Aires Gay Cabaret Bars - Palermo Viejo Gay Nightclubs - Lesbian Bars Buenos Aires - Bach Gay Bar Jose Antonio Cabrera
One of Palermo Viejo's friendliest gay and lesbian hangouts, cozy Bach Bar is within a short walk of several other gay nightspots in the area. The two-room space is equally popular among women and men and tends to draw a crowd mostly in theirs 20s and early 30s. It can get a little cramped in here when there are live bands, cabaret shows, and drag performances on the small stage, but the mood here is always quite festive and free of attitude. Page 5.

Buenos Aires Gay Dance Bars - Palermo Soho Gay Nightclubs - South America Cruise Bars - Gay Nightlife Buenos Aires - Bulness Class Buenos Aires
A reliably fun and somewhat trendy gay bar catering to a youngish, fashionable bunch of guys (and a smaller number of women), Bulnes Class is centrally located in the Palermo neighborhood, an easy walk from Amerika disco and several other of the city's top GLBT hot spots, on an otherwise quiet residential street. The action is centered around a main bar, and comfy leather armchairs and banquettes along the wall provide a nice spot for schmoozing and people-watching. Page 8.

Cero Consecuencia Lesbian Bar - Cero Consecuencia Palermo - Dance Bars in Buenos Aires - Photos of Buenos Aires Nightlife - Cheap Drinks Buenos Aires
Drawing a mix of lesbians and gay bars and with a distinctly local, unfussy, neigbhorhood ambience, Cero Consecuencia is on a central street in Palermo, not far from Bulnes Class and Amerika disco. It's a diminutive place with an even tinier front patio, through which you pass to reach the bar. Drinks are cheap here, and the small dance floor is campy and inviting - perfect if you're out with friends looking to cut loose. The crowd is quirky and varied, with more lesbians than most of the bars. Page 6.

Mendoza's cozy and friendly La Reserva bar isn't much, but then you didn't come all the way to this hub city of Argentina's esteemed Wine Country expressly to partake of gay nightlife, did you? Inside the laid-back spot just a few blocks from the city's central plaza are a handful of tables and chairs and a small bar to one side, selling inexpensive beer, wine, cocktails, and snacks. There's often live entertainment and drag shows, and on weekends the place actually fills up a bit.

Ever since Club JAM opened in the Marmalade District, just northwest of downtown and the Utah Capitol building, this attractive, clean, and smoke-free gay nightclub with a spacious patio has enjoyed a terrific following. With a full liquor license, a good selection of microbrews and wines, and very good food, this modern nightclub draws a good cross-section of SLC gay guys. Popular weekly events include the Sunday afternoon beer bust and barbecue, Tuesday college nights, Wednesday karaoke. Page 2.

The Mile High City branch of the campy and gay-popular restaurant chain Hamburger Mary's is set along East 17th Avenue, nearly across the street from one of Denver's most popular gay bars, JR's. This popular spot whose floor-to-ceiling windows open fully in warm weather is noted for its cheery happy hours, great cocktail specials, festive Sunday brunch, dishy servers (and patrons, for that matter), and extensive menu of burgers, sandwiches, salads, and finger foods.

Note: MoDiggity's has closed. One of two lesbian bars in Salt Lake City (the other being Paper Moon Nightclub), MoDiggity's is in a drab strip mall on the south side of the city, about a 10-minute drive southwest of the hip Sugar House neighborhood. This no-attitude, easygoing women's sports bar airs games (and movies) on TV screens, and has dancing on weekends, karaoke on Wednesdays, and Texas Hold 'Em poker nights on Tuesdays. Page 18.

Radio City Lounge Salt Lake City - Oldest Gay Bars Utah - Radio City SLC - Radio City Lounge Closed 2009 -
Although downtown Salt Lake's Radio City Lounge closed in August 2009, it's worth commemorating this venerable, if quirky, gay neighborhood bar that opened its doors in 1948. It had been known as the oldest gay bar west of the Mississippi at the time of its sad demise. Page 16.

Not to be confused with the defunct Trapp Door, which is just around the corner, The Trapp is what remains of the formerly significant gay scene that used to thrive in Salt Lake City's Warehouse District, west of downtown. This rollicking and friendly neighborhood hangout has stood the test of time, as several others have closed over the years, and the city's gay nightlife scene has spread geographically in all directions. The Trapp is known for its juke box of country-western standards. Page 13.

Try-Angles Gay Bar - Club Try-Angles Salt Lake City - Gay Private Clubs Salt Lake - Off Trax Cafe - Off Trax Gay Coffeehouse - Triangles Salt Lake
Popular with all ages and styles, centrally located Club Try-Angles is on the southwestern edge of downtown. The large dance club offers a little something for all kinds: pool tables, dancing to DJs on weekends, an expansive patio, free WiFi, Sunday barbecues during the warmer months, and $1 drafts on Tuesday nights. As is common in SLC, Try-Angles functions as a private club (guests from outside the area can visit by paying a fee for a temporary membership). Page 5.

Underground Colorado Springs - Underground Gay Bar Colorado Springs - The Underground Gay Disco - Colorado Springs Best Gay Clubs - Gay Underground
The largest gay club in Colorado Springs, and one of the largest in the state, The Underground occupies a historic building in the center of downtown and really comprises three distinct spaces in one. The main floor houses a friendly, laid-back bar with pool tables, darts, and games. A flight of stairs leads down to the impressive nightclub area, with a large dance floor and a first-rate sound system. And finally there's a rooftop bar and patio with great views of downtown.

In some ways, Savannah is the perfect gay nightlife destination - there are only a handful of gay bars, but each has a very different personality and scene, and together they make a great bar-hopping adventures. Of the bunch, Chuck's is what you might affectionately call Savannah's gay dive bar - it's a smoky, dark place with a great juke box, and it's set down along the waterfront, on a somewhat quiet stretch of otherwise touristy River Street. The crowd is mixed, more gay later in the evening. Page 9.

In openly gay author John Berendt's deliciously evocative book about Savannah, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, one character that truly stands out is local drag queen Lady Chablis, who has for many years performed her act at Club One. Over the years, in part thanks to both Lady Chablis and John Berendt's book, Savannah has become ever more gay-popular, and Club One has grown into more than a mere gay club but one of the city's bona fide tourist attractions.

Amsterdam Atlanta Gay Bar - Amsterdam Sports Bar Atlanta - Amsterdam Midtown Gay Bar - Atlanta Gay Video Bars - Atlanta Gay Sports Clubs - Amsterdam
Amsterdam, refreshingly, is the kind of bar where just about anyone might feel welcome. It's mostly a guys' spot, but women often hang out here, and you'll see a nice mix of ages, styles, races, and so on. Part of the draw is the variety of diversions, including a nice section with pool tables - Amsterdam feels a bit like a laid-back sports bar during the week (especially after work), but it draws more of a crowd on weekends. There's also casual restaurant.

One of several gay-oriented businesses in Midtown's Ansley Square shopping center, Burkhart's is your classic gay video bar, a favorite of all ages and styles, that's been going strong since...well...for many years. The crowd is decidely male and somewhat on the make (I met my second-ever boyfriend here in 1994, for whatever that's worth). A fun feature is that on the second floor you can lean over a railing and ogle the boys down below. There are a few rooms, including one with a pool table. Page 4.

Dudley's is a swish little lounge with attractive bar tables and stools and a welcoming bar with video screens above it. And just off the main room is a separate area where you can shoot pool. At both Dudley's and its neighbor, Club Pantheon, the crowd tends to be a catch-all of gay Charleston life: women and men of all ages and races, and quite a few straight customers, too. Dudley's, because it's quieter and more of a conversation bar, tends to draw a slightly older bunch. Page 21.

Escafe Gay Bar - Escafe Charlottesville
A popular, friendly hangout in the progressive and gay-friendly Virginia college town of Charlottesville, Escafe is a first-rate contemporary American restaurant during the day and early evening, before shifting into one of this small city's few gay bars in the evening. It's along Charlottesville's historic Downtown Mall, across from the Omni Hotel, and within a short walk of numerous shops and restaurants. Page 22.

The lovably racy and slightly scandalous Silverado has been a stalwart of Portland gay nightlife for many years, and it's become even more popular since it moved to a much larger and more impressive downtown space a 10-minute walk from its former Stark Street location. The bar has two sections: you enter into the main club, where a few hunky (and generally quite hung) strippers dance (they're permitted to strip down completely naked in Portland) on stage and in a small cage to one side.

This is part of the well-reputed chain of Steamworks bathhouses, which has additional locales in Chicago, Berkeley, and Toronto. Of the two gay bathhouses in town, Steamworks has a more diverse following - pretty much all types of cruisy guys frequent this one, from younger club kids to older guys. Page 14.

What looks like a relatively compact bar from the street is actually an expansive space with several areas to hang out, including a dance floor, lounge (popular for karaoke), game room (with pool tables and pinball), and more - it's also right beside a cool diner.

Martin's Off Madison is happily difficult to pigeonhole, as it serves many functions in the city's Capitol Hill neighborhood, and the GLBT community. In all senses, it's an extremely friendly, well-run, and enjoyable place to nurse a local beer, listen to superb piano music, mingle with friends, or dine on casual Italian and American bistro fare.

The quintessential leather-and-bear cruise bar on busy Oxford Street in the Darlinghurst section of Sydney, the Oxford Hotel has undergone a natty makeover since I snapped this photo and visited in 2005. Still, it's basically a laid-back, friendly spot drawing a somewhat rough-and-tumble bunch of regular guys, mostly in theirs 30s to 50s. The Oxford Hotel (134 Oxford St., 9331-3467) is right in the heart of Sydney's main gay nightlife hub, close to Stonewall, the Colombian, Midnight Shift, etc. Page 3.

A swell-elegant gay restaurant in heart of the Vinohrady nightlife district, right next to Club Valentino, Celebrity Cafe is a wonderful, atmospheric place with a couple of rooms lighted by candle and dim lamps, fun-kitschy faux-leopard walls and chairs, gilt mirrors, cozy round tables, and disco balls - it's a study in high camp, yet it's surprisingly cozy and tasteful. A few prints of celebs lien the walls, from Leo DiCaprio to Cindy Crawford to Goldie Hawn. Page 16.

And you thought all those fresh-faced, lithe, shirtless guys were talking to you simply because you're irresistibly fascinating? Well, this may be true, but if you find yourself showered with attention during your visit to Prague's Escape Club, in Nove Mesto just a short walk from Wenceslas Square, consider that many - if not most - of the man-boy creatures in this saucy basement nightclub are looking to initiate business relations with you.

Friends Bar Prague - Gay Bars Old Town Prague - Gay Prague Nightlife photos - Friends Gay Club Prague - prague gay bars pictures - stare mesto gay
A reliably friendly, long-running, centrally located spot in the heart of Old Town (Stare Mesto) Prague, Friends is a nice-size gay lounge with a smallish dance floor, located (as sooo many Prague gay bars) through a nondescript doorway and in a basement. Fun music videos play on the wall, a wide variety of drinks are served (wines, beers, liquor, mixed drinks), and there are different types of seating - cozy sofas, cocktail tables, a long bar-counter.

The most popular gay bathhouse in Belgium's capital city of Brussels, the Macho Sauna appeals to a mix of locals, tourists, and visiting business executives - it's just a 10-minute walk from the central Grand Place, right in the heart of the cozy but bustling gay nightlife district centered around Rue du Marche au Charbon. One difference between Macho and many other European gay saunas is that it closes at midnight, making it more of a day-time and early evening venue. Page 4.

You won't find many bars out there with quirkier locations than Mobel-Olfe, which occupies the ground floor of a defunct mid-rise furniture store that's surrounded by Turkish-immigrant apartment blocks - the bar is just outside the northwest side of the Kottbusser Tor (U) subway station, and it's a tiny bit challenging to find. Best just to ask around, or bumble around until you spy a crowd of hipsters, slackers, artists, and bohemians mingling outside the bar's front door. Page 10.

In the unabashedly quaint and artsy seaside village of Sitges, which feels a bit like Spain's version of Provincetown, you'll find numerous gay bars and cafes, including the open-air patio bar Parrot's along with its cross-the-Plaza-Industria neighbor, Parrot's 2. The gay resort village of Sitges is just a 45-minute trian ride down the Mediterranean coast from the sophisticated and progressive city of Barcelona. Page 5.

In a fashionable section of Prague's increasing gay hub, the Vinohrady neighborhood, the intimate and friendly Club Termix occupies a narrow basement space beside the charming Bar and Books Corner Bar and Bistro (a nice option for a bite to eat before dropping in). Termix has a small bar, a compact dance floor, and a petite lounge in back with some cushy chairs - yes, it's a diminutive space, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in spirit, drawing an eclectic mix of gays and lesbians.

Opened in 1991 as the first legal gay bathhouse in Sydney, Bodyline remains the top gay sex venue in the city, if not in Australia - a definitive cruising and hooking-up spot on a quiet side street just off the main gay nightlife, Oxford Street. Beyond the unassuming exterior, you'll find a nicely laid-out, clean, and pleasantly staffed four-story facility that includes a top-floor sundeck, a well-traveled maze of private rooms showing the latest gay porn flicks, a full gym with pool.

Although it was shuttered for a few years, Sydney's legendary drag cabaret, the Imperial Hotel, reopened recently and has quickly returned to being one of the city's hot spots for 2011. The historic building, which opened in 1880 in the now GLBT-popular neighborhood of Erskineville, became a hub of the city's drag scene in the 1980s and earned international fame as the inspiration for The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. It's undergone a major renovation and is looking great. Page 2.

One of the gay mainstays along Sydney's bustling Oxford Street bar strip, the Stonewall Hotel tends toward the younger, A-list set and consistently draws big crowds to its bars and dance floor, thanks to some of the top DJs in town, super-campy drag shows by the likes of Polly's Follies girls, Penny Tration, and Maxi Shield, and some very hot male dancers. In addition to weekends, the Monday Madness camp shows have a big following, as does Wednesday's legendary Malebox dating/hookup party.

The Alibi Room's slightly off-the-beaten-path location and setting inside a vintage brick building with high windows, hardwood floors, and both individual and communal wooden tables are a big part of its charm. It's a relaxed, contemporary space - really a 21st-century take on the old-world neighborhood tavern concept. At the Alibi you'll find one of Vancouver's best selections of beer on tap, plus interesting bottled ciders and beers from all over the world (but emphasis is on Pacific Northwest. Page 16.

One of the area's most celebrated and visited attractions, Capilano Suspension Bridge is actually the most famous part of an entire 27-acre nature park and First Nations cultural center in North Vancouver, about a 15- to 20-minute drive north of downtown. The bridge itself, built originally in 1889 and stretching 450 feet across the Capilano River gorge, is definitely a must - just go slowly if you're nervous about heights, as the river roars 230 feet below.

But there's also the adjacent Dirty Apron cooking school and cookery shop and the Cafe Medina breakfast-lunch spot serving similarly fantastic food. Page 12.

It's smack between the Granville and Burrard bridges, overlooking one of the city's largest marinas - an apt spot to enjoy some of the tastiest and freshest seafood and shellfish in the city. It's close to Granville Market, too. Page 17.

But this attractive, high-ceilinged bar with tall windows overlooking Davie Street does have the best-attended leather parties and competitions in the city. It's also just a relaxed neighborhood cruise bar with unpretentious bartenders, a patio, pool tables and large-screen TVs, and good daily drink specials. Page 21.

Although drawing a predominantly gay crowd, the Fountainhead is one West End pub and restaurant that tends to draw a great variety of patrons - gay, lesbian, straight...whatever. The vibe is always quite welcoming and friendly, and the scene very conducive to chatting, playing darts, dining on quite tasty pub fare, or relaxing under a heating lamp on the patio. The Fountainhead tends to be most popular after work and earlier in the evening, but you'll usually find a crowd here till closing. Page 29.

A laid-back and relaxed neighborhood bar along uber-gay Davie Street in Vancouver's West End, the Junction is more of a pub and casual restaurant (think burgers, pizza, and light tavern fare) on weekdays and a full-fledged (if compact) gay dance club on weekends. Patrons also play darts, shoot pool, watch campy videos and gay-popular TV shows, and mingle on the festive patio. As with Fountainhead and Oasis, two other inviting gay bars on Davie Street, this is a fine spot to hang out with friends. Page 18.

Sundays are well known for festive parties that take place on the bar's garden patio (fear not if it's cold or rainy - this space is both covered and heated). As gay bars go, Oasis exceeds expectations in the restaurant, which serves nicely crafted cuisine. Page 14.

As its name suggests, False Creek is actually an inlet from English Bay - it dead-ends to the east of Yaletown near BC Place Stadium and is crisscrossed from several major bridges into downtown Vancouver: Cambie Street Bridge, Granville Street Bridge, and Burrard Street Bridge. It separates Yaletown and the West End from Granville Island. Page 6.

Vancouver's Aquabus Ferries are the easiest way to get back and forth across False Creek inlet, which divides the West End/Davie Village area and Yaletown from Granville Island, Kitsilano, Broadway, and the South Granville Street areas of the city. These rainbow-color boats dart about False Creek throughout the day, and rides cost from $3 to $6, depending on how far you're going. Other stops include Edgewater Casino, foot of Hornby Street (West End), and Science World (by Olympic Village). Page 32.

However, a new retractable roof is being installed in 2011. This huge arena just south of Vancouver Public Library is between Yaletown and Gastown, and it's a major venue during the 2010 Winter Olympics. It also overlooks False Creek. Page 34.

It's Vancouver's most stylish gay hangout. Page 26.

Badlands Saloon Las Vegas - Badlands Gay Bar Las Vegas - Gay Country-Western Clubs - Las Vegas Gay Neighborhood Bars - Badlands Las Vegas
Part of the endearingly strange grab bag of gay and not-so-gay bars, sex clubs, Asian restaurants, and prosaic offices that inhabit the Commercial Center, an expansive, drab strip mall less than a mile east of the north end of the Strip, Badlands Saloon is a friendly cowboy-themed neighborhood joint catering mostly to guys in their 30s, 40s, and 50s. Crowd-size varies greatly - it can be quiet in here on weekdays, but happy hour and weekend late-night usually sees decent numbers. Page 4.

Bar Charlies Las Vegas - Bar Charlie Palazzo Las Vegas Resort - Sazerac Cocktail Photos - Charlie Trotter Las Vegas - Bar Charlie Closes
Legendary Chicago-based celeb chef Charlie Trotter finally arrived in Las Vegas in 2008, opening the vaunted Restaurant Charlie and adjacent Bar Charlie inside the sumptuous Palazzo Resort and Casino along the Strip (it's attached to the Venetian). Meals here are among the most sought-after and raved about in Vegas, and that's saying plenty in this land of culinary superstars. Consider sipping and nibbling in Bar Charlie is you're not up for the full dining experience. Page 12.

It won't cost you a dime to see the colorful, fragrant Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, which are just off the lobby of this lavish resort-casino and open for viewing 24/7, every day of the year. Displays change seasonally, and the holiday exhibits are most popular. Gazebos, bridges, and water features are a big part of the show here. After walking through these gardens, you might grab at snack at nearby Patisserie Jean-Philippe or Petrossian caviar and vodka bar. Page 6.

Bellagio Las Vegas - Bellagio Night Photos - Bellagio Hotel - Gay-Friendly Las Vegas Resorts - Luxury Vegas Resorts - Bellagio Pictures at Night
When Steve Wynn built Bellagio in 1998, to a tune of $1.6 billion, it was not merely the fanciest hotel in Vegas - it was said to be the most expensive hotel resort ever built. Since that time, Bellagio has become part of the MGM Grand group, and several other high-stakes casino-resorts have risen along the Strip. It's no longer quite the singular hotel of Las Vegas, but it remains opulent, perfectly maintained, and a worthy address for those in search of pampering and wow-factor.

Bellagio Fountains - Bellagio Resort and Casino Fountain Shows - Bellagio Fountain Photos - Bellagio Fountains Schedule - Lake Bellagio Water Show
Perhaps as famous as the Bellagio resort itself are the crowd-pleasing fountain shows that take place in Lake Bellagio each day and evening. The fountains erupt at set intervals throughout the day, to the sounds of famed classical and Broadway tunes. There's no cost or planning required - just show up along the sidewalk outside Bellagio (along Las Vegas Boulevard) or watch from one of the many restaurants that overlook the lake. At night, the show is particularly impressive, with spotlights. Page 9.

Fremont Street Las Vegas - Downtown Las Vegas Photos - Fremont Street Pictures - Don Yeyo Cigar Factory - Mamacita's Mexican Restaurant Fremont Street
A view of old-school Fremont Street, looking east from Las Vegas Boulevard toward Mamacita's Mexican and Cuban restaurant, Don Yeyo Cigar Factory, and the funky old El Cortez Hotel. This marks the eastern boundary of Fremont Street Experience - an enclosed pedestrian street with a fairly bland selection of bars, restaurants, and shops. This is one part of Vegas that still retains its gritty but interesting circa-mid-20th-century appearance and personality. Page 7.
