3 Best Bars in Summerlin and Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas

Lucky Bar

Summerlin South

This circular bar's casual, lively atmosphere, comfy couchlike seats, sexy staff, and giant chandelier make it one of the best in town, and worth the trip to the impressive Red Rock Resort complex. What's more, the bar is steps away from Rocks Lounge, another hip spot that features live performers most nights of the week.

McKenzie River Pizza, Grill & Pub

Beer and pizza are in high demand at this lively sports bar on the second floor of City National Arena. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner most days, and is particularly hopping during Vegas Golden Knights games, when locals turn out to watch on big-screen televisions and enjoy food and drink specials. The connection to the Knights here runs deep; City National serves as the team’s practice facility, and you can watch practices for free on certain days.

Rocks Lounge

Summerlin South

This venue became famous hosting Zowie Bowie, a guy-and-gal, too-blond-for-words act with music that sounds like Eminem and Frank Sinatra getting together to groove. The intimate venue now welcomes a variety of other entertainers, mainly tribute bands. Not exactly worth a trip from the Strip in and of itself, but if you're already at the Red Rock Resort, it's a fun place to hang out.
