You don’t head to the Petrossian bar for a party, you sit down and you linger as if there was nothing else in the world to do. You might share a story about a drink you once had in Key West or you’ll ponder the name of a great boutique hotel you stayed at in Tuscany. You see, the elegance and class in the bar extends from the service through the cocktails into the experience.

What it’s like at Petrossian Bar at Bellagio Las Vegas?
If there is a spot on the Las Vegas strip that makes you feel like you have accomplished your goals it’s Petrossian Bar. I won’t lie to you when I tell you that I’m more of a tiki bar and stiff cocktails in the sand kind of guy. However, sitting at the Petrossian Bar you realize that when the dust settles on your adventures you need a spot to collect your thoughts there are few spots that give you that feeling.
Sit at the bar. If you sit in the lounge you’ll feel comfortable but you don’t get the same feeling. The piano player will fill your conversations in the lounge while the bar will make influence your speech.
The bartenders are knowledgeable and helpful. They have time to smile and to explain the drink. In Las Vegas a good drink is easier to come by but a great drink with great service is somewhat of a lost art. Bartenders have become talented while losing their ability to have a conversation. Don’t worry the personalities and characters behind the bar at Petrossian will have you coming back.

I should mention the impressive Afternoon Tea service as it is a good way to ease your way into the late afternoon or early evening. You’ll find a table just away from the main lounge where you can enjoy some open faced sandwiches, pastries and tea while having a conversation. This is a perfect excuse to get the girls together for an afternoon of classic girl talk or the right way to show the woman in your life that you can sit back and enjoy some of the precious moments in life.
