Walking through The Cosmopolitan, you’ll spot a green exit door with a pink donkey on it inside the Block 16 Food Hall. This isn’t the start of a bizarre donkey-themed horror movie, but it is the entrance to one of the best secret bars in Vegas. Ghost Donkey has the largest mezcal selection in the state, so the right call here is to order a few to try - though they have plenty of good cocktails if that’s not your thing. Between the twinkling lights, neon sign, and their not-too-loud mix of reggaeton, Latin, and cumbia music, this small speakeasy is a great spot for a low-key pregame, date night, or solo adventure.

Mon Ami Gabi
Mon Ami Gabi, a French spot in the Paris, is great anytime of day, but make sure you sit outside - they have the best view of the Bellagio Fountains.
Rosina in the Venetian is one of the classiest looking bars you’ll find in Vegas; come for a cocktail with someone you’d like to impress.
One of our favorite buffets is at Veranda - it’s more casual than with it being inside the Four Seasons, and the mini donuts can cure any hangover.
