Royal Flush

Six-figure drinking in Sin City


Two hours at the craps table and look at you now: rolling in it.

Blowing money in Vegas is the easy part. Figuring out what to blow it on? That's the fun part.

Before you make it rain, get the party started with Vegas’ top 5 ridiculously expensive drinks.
5. Dom Perignon at Rogue
Long the ultimate status symbol, a bottle of Dom served by model servers amidst the sleek chrome accents and Ferrarri red furnishings of this sexy MGM Grand lounge will still get you noticed. Ironically, only in Vegas would this be the least expensive option on the list.
$425. Rogue at MGM Grand, 3799 Las Vegas Blvd. S., The Strip (702-891-1111).
4. Hine Talent Cognac at Guy Savoy Cognac Lounge
If you’re paying $700 for a shot, it’s probably not Cuervo. It must be Hine Talent, a specialty cognac exclusive to the new Cognac Lounge inside of Caesar’s Palace’s Restaurant Guy Savoy. Stored in hand-etched Baccarat crystal, this 1990 vintage makes buying a drunken round of shots an even more dangerous proposition.
$700 for a 1-oz. glass. Cognac Lounge at Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesar’s Palace, 3570 S. Las Vegas Blvd., The Strip (702-731-7110).
3. Ménage à Trois at Tryst
For a drink as memorable as its namesake act, a naughty threesome of Cristal Rose champagne, Hennessey Ellipse, and 150-year-old Grand Marnier will set you back a cool $3K. But it’s served with 23-karat gold flakes and liquid gold syrup sipped through a golden straw adorned with a nine-point diamond, so it’s totally worth it.
$3,000. Tryst at The Wynn, 3131 Las Vegas Blvd. S., The Strip (702-770-7000).
2. Ono at XS
Drinking a mix of Dom Perignon Oenothèque champagne and Louis XIII de Remy Martin Black Pearl cognac is one thing. Drinking it in a jewel-encrusted champagne flute paired with men’s sterling silver cufflinks and a women’s 18-karat white-gold chain with black pearl pendant is another thing. Like, a $10K thing.
$10,000. XS at The Wynn, 3131 Las Vegas Blvd. S., The Strip (702-770-7000).
1. Fountain Package at Hyde Bellagio
The ultimate bottle service package starts with the world’s largest bottle of champagne (a 30-liter Ace of Spades Midas) and ends with you pushing a red button atop a gold-plated box which turns off the famous Bellagio fountains. Then, when everyone stops to stare at your VIP outdoor patio table overlooking the fountains, you turn them back on. And it only cost you a quarter of a million dollars.
$250,000. Hyde at Bellagio, 3600 S. Las Vegas Blvd., The Strip (702-693-7111).
