    We're coming to Vegas in June, looking for your polls on some of Vegas's best fun restaurants and lounges - places that are have an
    an upbeat, fun/ different atmosphere a like a Dick's Last Resort, Coyote Ugly, Rainforest Cafe, etc. What's one of your favorite places
    and why? Are there any new places for 2016?

    Thanks a bunch, Everyone!! :beer::nworthy:

    We love DB Brasserie in Venetian. Good buzz and vibe in there. Craftsteak, too. The bar at Robuchon (L'Atelier.) TAO, too.

    P.S. Mon Ami Gabi, strip-side.

    it's kind of corny, but Roxie's diner at the Strat can be fun.....

    diner food with wait staff in 50's motif like Arnolds from Happy Days.....

    was having a sandwich there one afternoon and the waitress sat on the table and sang"Hey big spender" to me.:haha:

    Margaritaville comes to mind immediately. So does HRC.

    Off The Strip in the Linq has been fun. So has Bootlegger but it's more of a classy laid-back fun.

    I was thinking bootleggers also, it's a fun place to me but still kinda classy and we love their food.

    Hit Serranos in the Aria for afternoon happy hour... Great appies, and the best Sangria (white, red, or rose) known to man (or woman)...even if you're like me, and not a fan of sangria...
    If Jeffrey the bartender is still there, (creator of those sangrias) , he's your go to guy. My wife and I were there last September, and had so much fun, our " happy hour" tab ended up on the steep side! ( $350 for four people for appies and drinks) granted...we were there for the entire happy hour!

    I think the "Top of the World" at the top of the Stratosphere is a fun place to eat. "The Top of the World" revolves 360 degrees in one hour and shows you the whole valley from your dinner table. Their food is good too and after your meal you can walk around the outdoor observation deck for free.

    I love Top of the World. I would suggest that you get there early, and have a cocktail in their bar, then dinner, then a walk out on the deck. Time it for sunset like we did for an added bonus. I love nothing more than watching the lights come on as the sun goes down in Vegas. Seeing it from top of Stratosphere on my 30th birthday was a real treat that I will never forget.

    This thread illustrates how subjective this question is: there's not much that STK and Rainforest Cafe have in common other than that someone on VMB thinks that they are both fun.

    My go-to fun restaurants are China Poblano and Holstein's, both in the Cosmopolitan. Lively (loud), good food, casual and moderately priced, with lots of adjacent foot traffic heading to and from Marquee and the various Cosmo lounges. For something a little higher up on the culinary and cost ladder, I like SushiSamba and STK.

    I like Twin Peaks for both views. (1) sexy staff in skimpy outfits, and (2) awesome view of the strip for people watching. Tilted Kilt is also good for skimpy outfits, but the view outside is not nearly as good. Gordan Ramsey's BurGR is kind of fun, if you like iPads and fire.

    Not a restaurant, but kind of applies. Tournament of Kings, show and dinner, you get to eat with your hands and everyone cheers for their champion.

    For tacky old time nostalgia, I like the Peppermill.

    Nothing great, but the Teppanyaki @ Lillies in the Nugget is good fun.
