SURPRISINGLY SANE BAR HITS THE JACKPOT AT THE VENETIAN


Slot machine acoustics driving you to drink? Run a tab at the ice-cool V Bar in the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. The urbane nightclub introduces the Strip to upscale lounging, installing a 50-foot opaque glass wall between hoi polloi and inner sanctum, and furnishing the room with scene-making silver-leather daybeds. Forces behind New York’s Lotus Supper Club and L.A.’s Sunset Room unite in V Bar, drawing Hollywood hipsters like Ben Affleck and George Clooney with its sleek vibe. (702) 414-3200
