Eastside Lounge at Encore
Sit back and relax in Eastside Lounge, an unpretentious bar at Encore Las Vegas. The spacious lounge is located right off the casino floor, where there is plentiful seating, the chairs are comfortable and high ceilings mean the lounge is relatively smoke-free.
It is located beside the resort’s pool, and you can enjoy outdoor seating on plush couches poolside, if you’d like a breath of fresh air. Inside, take a seat next to the floor-to-ceiling windows, which look out on the fountains that fringe the pool.
Eastside Lounge serves up a lengthy drink menu that includes specialty cocktails, a large selection of wines and even a handful of fun mocktails. The wait staff is knowledgeable about specialty cocktails, so don’t hesitate to ask. A particular favorite is the sweet lychee martini. The bar also has a selection of organic cocktails.
Shots run from approximately $10.00 up to $24.00 on the high roller menu; choose from a large and diverse selection of vodka, rum, gin, tequila, mezcal, whiskey, cognac and brandy. Wine starts at $10.00 per glass.
Enjoy your drink in style with a selection from Eastside Lounge’s cigar menu. Prices range from $18.00 to $75.00.
Feel free to chill in the lounge even if you aren’t interested in drinking. Mocktails run approximately $8.00 a drink; the cucumber and ginger cooler is worth a try. Soda and standard bar snacks are also available.
The Eastside Lounge is open Tuesday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m.-2:00 a.m. and Friday through Monday 11:00 a.m.-4:00 a.m.
