Cocktails with a kick
Reminiscent of an enchanted forest, Bar Moderno at Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev., features golden tree trunks and starlight crystal fixtures. The Bramble Berry with vodka and fresh blackberries is tempting, but this is the place for great Bloody Marys with a kick. The Bar Moderno “Inferno Marys” come in three strengths: Slightly Hung-Over (mild), Really Hung-Over (spicy) and Fire in the Hole (extremely hot), with the difference being the habanero level. Located just off the casino floor, near the guest elevators, it's open 24 hours a day. (3730 Las Vegas Blvd.)
