Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino

Carnival lasts all year at the Rio. With a float occasionally passing overhead and dropping beads while feathered dancers fire up the gamblers below, the Rio tries to keep its 120,000-square foot casino jumping with excitement. Special Brazilian mixed-drinks are also served throughout the casino. The hotel suites tend to be larger than similar priced rooms on the Strip and many offer excellent views with floor to ceiling windows.

The Rio offers some quality shows like "Penn & Teller" and "Chippendales." Many come to the Rio for the nightlife at the VooDoo Lounge, located on the 51st floor, or McFadden's Irish Pub on the casino level.

Others come for a bit relaxation at the Rio Spa or pool area and still others come to shop at the hotel's 60,000 square feet of shops. In each of these endeavors, the Rio attempts to make the experience a bit more fun and spontaneous.

The Rio also offers guests a variety of dining choices from all-American food at the All-American Bar & Grille to Gaylord India Restaurant for something a little spicier and even Carnival World Buffet for the indecisive.

McFadden'sMcFadden's
McFadden's serves up traditional Irish fare like shepherd's pie, made with ground beef and topped with mashed potatoes and melted cheese. Fish 'n' chips is a traditional house favorite and grilled salmon with long-grain wild rice is a healthier option. There are even Irish nachos, crispy fries smothered in cheese with bacon bits, green onions and a side of ranch. Wednesday night is Locals Night. Happy hour is from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. with two-for-one domestic drafts and well cocktails.
VooDoo Rooftop NightclubVooDoo Rooftop Nightclub
The glass elevator ride to VooDoo Lounge, atop the Rio Hotel, is not for the faint of heart, as it offers a bird’s eye view of Vegas. Once inside, black light voodoo drawings in the winding hallways draw the eye’s attention and the bar area, decorated with candles, lends an air of mystery. Check out the entertaining flare bartenders who mix up tempting concoctions like the Love Potion or the Witch Doctor, or take in the view from VIP seating that flanks the bar on either side. VooDoo lounge also offers a stage area, featuring live music performances. The outdoor area has breathtaking views of the Strip as well as ample VIP seating near the DJ booth. A massive iron staircase leads to the exclusive upper level on the very top of the club. The Lounge opens at 5 p.m. and the club vibes pick up around 10 p.m.
