    Looking for recommendations. Is there a place to have a large group meet around Ballys? I usually have people meet at Sully's, but was wondering if there is somewhere outdoors perhaps, with seating? Most people are staying at Ballys, some at Cosmo, some at Bellagio. I love people watching, and hate having to wait for late people, so I thought maybe there is somewhere I could combine this. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    My wife and I love the outdoor portion of the Flamingo Poker Bar. It's on strip on the Cromwell side of the Flamingo. They have fans and misting machines when it is really hot. It's on a main walkway and has seating for 30 or so. We make a point to have a beer there every trip and were fortunate enough to be there when they were filming the Hangover 3 parachute scene at/above Caesar's Palace. Former O'Shea's bartender Santonio usually has an afternoon/evening shift. Good guy, good times.

    There is a place outside Paris that sells beer and has outside tables. Near the tower base.

    Most of the places at the LINQ have outdoor seating and that seems to be a popular spot as of late.

    Agree with LINQ area. If you get stuck indoors, the seahorse in Caesars is great for people watching and a casual (though expensive) drink.

    This would be my suggestion too. You can have a margarita while you wait.

    Last time my wife and I were in Vegas, we sat there and had drinks and people watched for a couple of hours and really enjoyed ourselves. We got so caught up in the people watching, we lost track of time.

    It's just as described. A small liquor store at the base of the tower right on the sidewalk on the strip. Mon Ami Gabi is just to the North. You'll laugh when you see this place because you've probably walked by it a dozen times and never even noticed it, like me!!

    do Street view and you can see the bar area. I totally agree with above poster who said that you have walked by it many times without noticing it. I know I have.

    Thanks for the info! It cracks me up how many places there are in Vegas that I've probably walked past a million times and never really noticed
