Macau is a destination that's dedicated to pleasure. The 'Vegas of the East' is packed with glitzy bars and nightclubs where the Chinese and rich clientele come to let their hair down party after a hard day on the roulette tables. Here are some of our favourites...

Wave BarWave Pool Bar & Grill

Wave Pool Bar & Grill

Wave Pool Bar & Grill’s evening Brazilian style barbecue dinner buffets serve up the best cuts of meats such as US striploin, Mongolian lamb rack and many more choices. You can also enjoy wonderful salads, seafood and irresistible desserts with your free-flow iced tea and soft drinks. Quench your thirst with fresh juice blends like Tropicana (with pineapple, kiwi and ginger) or smoothies that are as thirst-quenching as they are healthy.

SOHO

The City of Dreams now has its own dining and entertainment district. SOHO, named after its New York, London and Hong Kong counterparts, is where over a dozen international restaurants and bars call home. Weekly offers are a great way to experience SOHO Macau. The Wednesday Ladies Night gets you over the mid-week hump with free-flow shooters before a live band warms things up. SOHO Friday and Saturday Beer Fever follow suit with an entrance fee that offers a range of unlimited drinks and entertainment until midnight.

BelliniBellini

Bellini Lounge

Bellini Lounge’s live performances have become one of Macau’s hottest entertainments, and the resident band Phunk Shui’s international repertoire will not disappoint. Ten talented musicians from around the world will get you on your dancing feet with their amazing guitar work, soulful blues- rock solos and wild ‘80s metal riffs. Sing along classic rock hits as the city’s largest and highest resolution LED screen on stage heightens your visual and audio experience.

Lion's BarLion's Bar

Lion's Bar

Seated at arm’s length from the stage, you are definitely in a good position to enjoy Lion’s Bar’s live performances by house band Soul Republic and DJ Ted. Enjoy excellent drinks, as the venue serves not only unique cocktails, but also rare vintage rums, single malt whiskies, tequilas and cognacs. Don’t miss July’s Johnnie Walker promotions where you can savour its Gold Label Reserve, Blue Label and King George V edition. This bar also serves the “Winston”, made with Croizet 1858, which is the Guinness World Record holder for the most expensive cocktail.
