DO THAT VOODOO
Have a drink made with panache by the “level-3 flair bartenders” at VooDoo Nightclub, on the 51st floor of Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino’s Masquerade Tower. The club is famous for its circus-style bartending — including mixologists doing tricks while concocting specialty drinks.
The bar’s most popular cocktail is the Witch Doctor ($30), which epitomizes the New Orleans voodoo theme. The 32-ounce drink, meant to be shared by four, is delivered to the table with dry ice to create the illusion of a smoking cauldron.
VooDoo is an indoor-outdoor double-decker nightclub with a striking steel staircase that offers one of the best views in Las Vegas. Dancing is courtesy of the club’s house band and nightly DJs who keep the party going.
The club is located directly above VooDoo Steak, Rio’s signature steak house. Anyone who dines at the restaurant prior to coming to the nightclub skips the cover charge. The hotel is host to the Women’s Wear In Nevada trade show, so WWIN attendees are also admitted free with their lanyard.
