Some people travel to explore new frontiers, iconic landmarks, ancient ruins, and historical museums, some travel to places where they can ride the surf and soak up the sun, and others travel to "the entertainment capital of the world" to experience the legendary Vegas pool parties and Las Vegas nightlife.
There's just something about drinking, dancing, and dining on an open-air rooftop at night with stunning views that never gets old! Fortunately, Las Vegas has its fair share. One of the best ways to see the city and all the glitz and glamor of the world-famous Strip and its ever-evolving skyline is to rise above it. Rooftop venues offer elevated vibes and views of the spectacular scenery, from breathtaking sunsets and popular tourist attractions to the distinct architecture and the dazzling neon lights. If you want to get high naturally, we have compiled a list of award-winning rooftop Las Vegas nightclubs, pool parties, and bars from the Strip to historic Downtown Fremont Street.

Brian Pfeiffer’s Comment on Rooftop Bars
I hope you enjoyed the most comprehensive guide on rooftop bars in Vegas. If you are a bucks party looking to meet some hens or some Vegas party girls and if you can't swing over-priced bottle service, then tickets, the guestlist or the Las Vegas Party Pass is an option. The party pass is a VIP entry option with no cover and quick entry to 5 nightclubs and 4 pools; this wristband sure beats dealing with a long guestlist line and a Las Vegas Promoter.
