A Promenade by any other name is still a great way to enjoy the Entertainment Capital of the World!

Located across the street from Caesar's and tucked between the Flamingo, Harrah's and The Linq is what some patrons are describing as an on-going block party. What was once simply an alley for motor coach staging between two properties and parking garages is now a very popular destination even for repeat visitors to Southern Nevada. The Flamingo and Harrah's, long-time Las Vegas icons, now have a new neighbor, The Linq Hotel & Casino. Formerly the Quad and the Imperial Palace, The Linq Hotel & Casino is not even a shadow of its former self. Luxury rooms can offer a spectacular view of Las Vegas' newest attraction, the High Roller.

The Promenade, Las Vegas

Billed as the World's Tallest Observation Wheel, the 550-foot-tall High Roller provides perfect viewing of the Las Vegas Strip, the Las Vegas Valley and the Linq Promenade. If you time your ride just right, it is also one of the best places to enjoy the dancing fountains of the Bellagio. The High Roller opened to the public March 31, 2014 and has been illuminating the Las Vegas skyline ever since. It's always fun to enjoy the ride with visitors from all over the world, but, the pods can be reserved for private parties as well depending on the size. You can even add a personal bartender to enhance the experience.


Although the High Roller is certainly the main attraction at the Linq, the Promenade can be enjoyed by day or night as well! This outdoor venue offers retail, dining and entertainment options for kids of all ages. The variety of restaurants like Chayo Mexican Kitchen and Tequila Bar, the Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery, the Yard House and the Brooklyn Bowl, which is also ranked as a number-one music venue by Zagat, makes choosing a food option difficult. The Linq with all of its restaurants can accommodate groups from 10 to 10,000. So, be sure to invite your friends!

You don't have to be hungry or thirsty to enjoy the Linq Promenade. It's a great place to stroll, people watch or just sit and savor the moment. There's even a “selfie station” so you can share the moment with your BFFs all over the world! This might just be one of those places that demands a repeat visit because you simply can't experience it all the first time. You'll want to come back time and time again.
