No one does champagne better than France, so what better place to host a champagne bar than Paris Las Vegas?
The Champagne Bar, located inside the elegant Napoleon's bar at Paris, offers a mind-boggling variety of more than 100 champagnes and sparkling wines, served by the bottle and the glass.
There is something for every taste from the popular Veuve Clicquot Yellow label to older vintages of Moët & Chandon's Dom Perignon.
If you simply can't make up your mind, try one of the "flights of fancy" -- a sampling of three different kinds of champagne.
Don't worry if you're not a champagne connoisseur -- the staff is knowledgeable and can make recommendations.
Champagne prices vary widely -- from as little as $7 for a glass to more than $100 for a bottle.
If you're looking for something reasonably priced, you might want to try an $8 champagne cocktail -- champagne mixed with fruit puree.
The bar also serves a light menu of hors d'oeuvres, all of which are classic complements to champagne. Choose from foie gras, a variety of truffles, caviar and either chocolate or caramel fondue served with exotic fruits, marshmallows, French cookies and gummy bears for dipping. We were served a complimentary bite-sized eggplant pâte with our drink order.
Food selections are available from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. Don't forget to check out happy hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. You can get a free sandwich from the carving station with purchase of a drink.
If champagne is just not your style, Napoleon's has a large and diverse drink menu with wines, cognacs, ports, martinis and other specialty drinks priced from $7.50.
The sophisticated menu at Napoleon's matches the elegant ambience of the bar. Leather armchairs, plush sofas and marble floors decorate the room. Large windows overlook the "streets" of Paris, and there are live music performances.
If you decide to try Napoleon's, you may want to go later in the evening -- every night at midnight the bar welcomes the new day with a complimentary champagne toast.
