Patio Perfect Las Vegas Dining

The Perks of Alfresco Dining + Patio Rules

Las Vegas is one of the few cities where it’s comfortable year round to dine outdoors. Patio seating allows you to enjoy world-class cuisine outside the walls of the casino providing the best vantage points for people watching on the Strip.

With a giant pink-and-orange bar and a massive Tiffany-inspired lamppost, Serendipity 3 at Caesars Palace has one of the Strip’s most colorful patios. Settle in at a counter that looks right onto the Boulevard and chances are passersby will be envious when they see you with a light lunch, Frrrozen Hot Chocolate or one of the casual eatery’s decadent desserts, like the tempting Deep Fried Oreos & Ice Cream Sundae.

Mon Ami Gabi Paris Las Vegas

Even in Paris, you can’t get a meal this great under the Eiffel Tower. Paris Las Vegas’ French restaurant Mon Ami Gabi offers some of the best people watching on the Strip from its terrace—and has a direct view of the Bellagio fountains.

Carlos 'n Charlie's Paloma Drink Flamingo Las Vegas

Want a view of Las Vegas’ other type of party animals? Two levels of outdoor seating at the wildly fun Carlos’n Charlie’s at Flamingo means guests get a closer look at the hotel’s lush wildlife habitat. It’s also a great perch for glimpsing the famous flamingos that live onsite.

Guy Fieri's Vegas Kitchen The LINQ Las Vegas

Like everything else about its namesake celebrity chef, the outdoor dining space at Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar is larger-than-life. Some 200 diners can take in a panoramic view of the Strip, while those walking into The LINQ Hotel & Casino get a peek at what the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host is cooking up for his fans.

Raos Bocce Ball Court Caesars Palace Las Vegas

Tucked away near the Caesars Palace Garden of the Gods pool, Rao’s patio is a hidden oasis. In the summer, you’ve got a perfect seat for ogling sun worshipers, and at night, the only bocce ball court on the Strip: a perfect way to unwind after a big Italian meal.

Chayo Patio The LINQ Las Vegas

Though the ground-level patio of Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Tequila Bar at The LINQ Promenade is fun, it’s the one upstairs that should get all the glory at this casual Mexican restaurant. A built-in fire feature runs in a line throughout the entire outdoor space, creating an even cozier and more picturesque atmosphere, especially with the High Roller observation wheel in the background.
