Hyde Bellagio brings to Vegas a European vibe with old-world touches inspired by an Italian villa. Books, paintings, chandeliers and fine marble tiles are among the small, but plentiful details that give Hyde its upscale feel. If you've ever wanted to fake what it feels like to vacation on the Amalfi Coast, but would rather replace the sea with the Bellagio Fountains and the serene sounds of ocean waves with a DJ, Hyde might be the place for you.
For those looking to start their nightlife party early, the venue opens at 5 p.m., but only about half of the club is accessible before 10 p.m. After 10, things get kicking as the partition rises and the full nightlife potential of Hyde Bellagio is unlocked. Even at that point this isn't a shout-until-you-can't-talk kind of club. Hyde is about subtle refinement and appeal. There's no dedicated dance floor, but instead, enough room in and around the booths and tables to dance.
The venue's two bars follow a strict, high-end mixology program. The mixologists at Hyde prepare cocktails with an intensity and professionalism you can't help but admire, especially after taking that first sip. Do be careful though. The free-flowing nature of the club means you might have people dancing right next to you as you try to sip your tini.
What really makes Hyde special is the view of the Fountains of Bellagio. The architectures understood all too well that they were creating something special even for Sin City. Mandalay Beach can keep its sand. Hyde is the true waterside club. When the fountain show sounds, the outdoor balcony and especially the VIP booths are the places to be. It's Euro-chic but still Vegas in all the right ways.
We'll keep you updated if we ever find out why they call it Hyde without having a bar called Jekyll.
