Fodor's Expert Review The Artisan Lounge
This not-yet-well-known favorite of ours is in the slightly out-of-the-way Artisan Hotel and is sort of an upscale version of the Peppermill. The vibe is relatively chill even on weekends, so it can serve as a tonic to the usual Vegas lunacy. The interior is filled with gilt-framed paintings (and sometimes frames without the paintings), which are even on the ceiling. Ordinarily, a crazy ceiling stunt like this one would seem silly, but the muted romantic ambience here (candlelight, soft music, dark wood, comfy leather couches) makes it work. On Friday and Saturday nights DJs spin electro, house, and techno from 10 pm until dawn, but you can party 24 hours a day here.
