Parrothead or not, if you like a fun atmosphere and tropical drinks, you'll enjoy partying at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville.
The three-level Margaritaville is a restaurant with six bars and an outdoor balcony overlooking the Strip. The interior has a nautical theme complete with booths that look like fishing boats.
Buffett fanatics, aka Parrotheads, will get their fix as the singer's signature songs play continually along with accompanying video throughout the restaurant. There's also live music at night and if Buffett happens to be in town for a concert, you can bet the pre-party is taking place here.
The centerpiece Volcano Bar (which Parrotheads will know is named for a Buffett song) 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 are the drink of choice in a place called Margaritaville, so order yourself a Who's to Blame, Last Mango in Paris or a Fins to the Left variety from one of the flair bartenders.
There are plenty of other tasty specialty drinks such as the "5 O'Clock Somewhere." Be a good tourist and take home a souvenir 45-ounce cup shaped like a blender and filled with your favorite concoction.
The restaurant part of Margaritaville features island-inspired food including fresh fish (don't miss the Landshark Lager fish & chips), steak, tacos, sandwiches and the signature Cheeseburger in Paradise burger.
