What are the hottest spots to eat, drink, and dance while enjoying the roar of the fountains and the overall epicness of the Bellagio water show? We’ve assembled a list of trendy Las Vegas spots all with waterfront views so you can be front and center to the show. Pull up a seat and plan your perfect evening in Vegas.
Hyde Bellagio is the only nightclub in Vegas that can boast a waterfront view of the fountains, and for that reason it tops the list. With a nearly 10,000 square foot space, 40 VIP tables, and two fully stocked bars on each end – it is one of the ultimate party locations in all of Las Vegas.
It is a frequent spot for celebrity appearances including Bradley Cooper, Brody Jenner, Mario Lopez, and Paris Hilton. Hyde has also recently recently housed performances by Nick Jonas, John Legend, Miguel, and rappers Rae Sremmurd. You can see footage of Miguel’s new year performance on our Hyde Bellagio page.
Hyde opens as a lounge every day at 5pm and then as a nightclub at 10:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and also on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for their infamous industry nights. They feature a free VIP Guestlist for visitors of our website which includes an complimentary open bar for girls 10:30pm to 1:00am (vodka and champagne). That’s right, two and a half hours of free drinks. Sign up now at our Hyde Bellagio page or read more about our free VIP Guest List.
Olives by Todd English is one of the most popular restaurants at the Bellagio, and notably so. Featuring a gorgeous, expansive patio on the water (seen below) and a unique blend of Mediterranean and Italian cuisine, it is one of the best dining experiences in Las Vegas. If you’re in Vegas on a budget, you’ll also enjoy this restaurant for its modestly priced menu in comparison with other nearby options for dining.
Some of the most popular starters include the Beef Carpaccio, Tuna Tartare, and the Hudson Valley Foie Gras. Sound appetizing? Take a look at their full menu and all the mouth watering and unique dishes that they offer.
If dining on the water is in mind, Lago is another excellent and exotic choice for the evening. Lago is a fairly new restaurant in the Bellagio Hotel specializing in Italian cuisine, and replaced the long standing Circo adjacent to Hyde Bellagio in the center of the casino. Lago features a gorgeous modern exterior made of multicolored glass that is immediately eye catching as you walk through the central hallway of the casino. Luminescent shades of blue and white tile carry you to the back balcony, where you’ll enjoy everything from Pasta Fagioli to Osso Buco amidst the glimmer of the rising water.
It’s difficult to think of anything more romantic than an exquisitely crafted Italian meal against the gentle roar of the fountains, with perhaps “Luck be a Lady” reverberating through the cool evening air to set the tone. Lago at the Bellagio may be one of the top places to enjoy an amazing meal while watching the Bellagio Fountains, but it also may just be the best spot for a couple’s night in all of Las Vegas.
Located directly across the street from the fountains at Paris hotel and casino is Mon Ami Gabi, a staple of classic French and American cuisine in Las Vegas. Owning five locations across the U.S., Mon Ami Gabi has been in Vegas for years and is one of the most popular restaurants at Paris and in the central Strip area. The restaurant opens at 7am and has a large breakfast menu, including the popular Grilled Prime Steak & Eggs Platter, which is probably the best thing you can eat to close out a sleepless Vegas night of gambling and partying. Wouldn’t it be nice enjoy a refreshing mimosa and perhaps a plate of Duck and Porkbelly Cassoulet with a view like this?
Mon Ami Gabi is actually one of the only major restaurants in Vegas that serves a full breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner menu. They also have extensive wine and champagne list, and for those truly looking to celebrate, a bottle of 04′ Dom Perignon at $380. Some prefer a holistic and relaxed view of the fountains and Mon Ami Gabi offers it, along with a delicious palette of exotic French dishes to enjoy. If you’re strolling through the center of the strip you may want to head directly across from the Bellagio fountains and check it out.
When you’re walking into the Bellagio from Caesar’s Palace and heading through the shops, look left for a private looking escalator down to the water level. That’s the entrance to the exclusive Bellagio steakhouse Prime. One of the unique features here is the direct water level view of the Bellagio Fountains, making Prime a top choice for a Vegas steakhouse with a view. Another unique feature about Prime is that the patio is often reserved for private groups, accomodating up to 50 people at once.
If you’re coming to Vegas with a corporate management team or small convention entourage and looking for a front row seat on the Bellagio fountains, look no further than Prime. While we’ve provided many great choices, we feel this is the best option for a group of colleagues or friends you really want to take care of and show a good time. Wherever you eat – most end up at Hyde Bellagio after dinner to drink and dance the night away with a central view. See you there!
