English: The Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign

Reuters – Whether headed to Las Vegas for a business convention or bachelorette party, Vegas thrill-seekers are legendary in their pursuit of flash and excitement.

However, that doesn’t necessarily extend to the drinks – at the bar, the objective is to make guests feel comfortable, even as they push limits at the poker table.

“There is no ‘iconic’ drink in Las Vegas,” says resident mixologist Patricia Richards. “The world visits Las Vegas, so people like things that are familiar, or somewhat familiar, and cocktails that are not too ‘geeked out.’”

In other words, classics like the Mojito, Margarita and Cosmopolitan are top Vegas tipples. Richards adds that if she had asked her the same question three years ago, she would have selected Grey Goose with Red Bull as the cocktail of choice.

Along the glittery Vegas strip, most of the action takes place within the enormous hotel complexes which encompass casinos, entertainment venues, and more bars, restaurants and cocktail lounges than anyone could tackle in a single visit.

For business travelers, Richards recommends the Parasol Up and Parasol Down bars both at the Wynn, http://www.wynnlasvegas.com.

Food & Wine Magazine also selected Parasol Down as one of its “50 Best Bars in America,” due in large part to Richards’ drink list. The two-tiered bar features large inverted parasols and nightly shows projected on to the “Lake of Dreams” waterfall.
