Acid rock Hotel & & Casino
Probably one the coolest joints in the area, the Hard Rock Hotel & & Gambling establishment houses a few of Vegas’ best entertainment, dining establishments and nightlife.
At Acid rock, it’s all about the music. From the light fixtures constructed out of drum cymbals and guitar shaped door deals with to phase outfits and devices of the trade of legendary musicians displayed on the walls, the hotel screams rock-and-roll. The Acid rock’s Joint has hosted some the most significant names in music– from The Who to Bob Dylan to home town heroes, The Killers.
Aside from the music locations, the pool at the Acid rock is among its greatest destinations. Spread out over 4.7 acres, the pool area showcases swim-up blackjack, a bar and grill, private cabanas, a bevy of secluded nooks, a waterfall and an extensive live music location with a dance floor. Throughout the summertime, the swimming pool transforms into the Rehab club on Sunday afternoons.
The resident bar Body English merges European sophistication with a rock star bachelor pad and it commonly a hot spot for going to superstars and popular DJs. Classic rock souvenirs lines the walls at Wasted Area, Acid rock’s anti-club.
Restaurants at Acid rock are just as hip as the rest of the gambling establishment. Pink Taco dishes out Mexican dishes, along with a Central American and Caribbean menu. Nobu, one of five around the world Japanese-specialty restaurants from famous Nobu Matsuhisa, satisfies a various taste. For round-the-clock cuisine, Mr. Lucky’s 24/7, makes sure to ease your hunger even after a Vegas-all-nighter.
