Parrotheads are "wasting away again" in Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville at the Flamingo Las Vegas.
Buffett's song "Margaritaville" evokes thoughts of tropical islands and exotic drinks, and this bar and restaurant aims to do the same.
Margaritaville has a nautical theme and a festive atmosphere complete with booths that look like fishing boats.
Buffett fanatics will get their fix as the singer's signature songs play continually along with accompanying video throughout the restaurant. Patrons can also dance the night away to live entertainment.
The three-level facility features a large outdoor balcony overlooking the Strip. It's the perfect spot to relax, enjoy the weather and have a meal or a drink while watching the action below.
There are several bars including the centerpiece Volcano Bar. It features a three-story volcano that erupts over the bar, spilling margarita mix into two giant 300-gallon blenders every hour. At night, you'll often see a bikini-clad woman nicknamed the "Las Vegas Cutie" sliding down the volcano and into one of the blenders, where she's fished out with a giant hook.
Margaritas -- such as Who's to Blame, Last Mango in Paris, Fins to Left and Feelin' Hot Hot Hot -- and other tasty specialty drinks such as the "5 O'Clock Somewhere" or the frozen "Havanas and Bananas" average about $10. You can even take home a 45-ounce cup shaped like a blender and filled with your favorite concoction.
The restaurant features island-inspired food including fresh fish (don't miss the Landshark Lager fish & chips), steak, tacos, sandwiches and the signature Cheeseburger in Paradiseburger. There are even gluten-free and vegetarian menus.
Don't forget to try dessert -- like the key lime pie or the Chocolate Hurricane (made for sharing).
Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville is a mecca for Parrotheads or for anyone who wants to have a good time in the ultimate tropical setting.
