LUCKY BAR ****** Located in the center of the Red Rock Casino, this bar is a typical cookie cutter establishment that you will encounter in almost any gambling venue here in Vegas, although perhaps a little swankier than most. Thanks to the multiple crystal beads and the sparkling centerpiece in the bar area, it does make a rather glitzy impression. Flat screens are strategically placed all throughout this lounge, making it into a potential sports bar if necessary. The furniture is an eclectic combination of all different kinds of chairs and sofas, but they all appear very comfortable and inviting and provide ample seating opportunities. The tables are white marble. The dominating colors of red, brown, white and cream emphasize the elegant character of the interior; the candles and subdued lighting complement it even more. An interesting touch: the leather padded columns. Well, at least if you have one too many you won’t have to worry about grave bodily harm if you bump into one of those! Even though there are flimsy curtains in the open spaces between Lucky’s and the casino floor, they were not drawn, so you basically don’t really have any barrier between where you sit and all the gaming action. As if that wasn’t temptation (or annoyance) enough, you can also enjoy a round of gambling at the bar itself, the ever-present machines in every available space. The music featured there that evening seemed overly loud and aggressive: it ruined the mood and spoiled the sophisticated vibe this venue obviously aspires to achieve.  It belonged a lot more in a club (if they already must play this atrocious mixture of house and techno) than in a lounge, where a lot of guests do come in to relax over a drink and have a conversation with their friends. So please be warned: definitely not a place to go if you want to pamper your vocal cords. As far as the waitresses are concerned, they all looked fabulous in their little golden dresses, very much Bond-girl style and were lovely to look at. Unfortunately though, not so pleasant to deal with on a more personal level. The young lady who attended to our table arrived already disgruntled, became indignant when I timidly inquired what sort of white wine they carried (was not on the menu mind you, so unless I was psychic I had no way of knowing), but her levels of outrage rose even more when I asked her to take a picture of us. With a very resentful facial expression she complied, but I can tell you I really counted my blessings that she did not smash me with my very own camera right on the head that night. I’d say it was touch and go. After that she brought us our drinks (my AHA moment: the bar probably called so because it’s open enough that she wouldn’t have anywhere to go to discreetly spit into our drinks, so we were, indeed, very LUCKY), made us pay our bill on the spot and we never saw her again. All this charming interaction aside, sadly I would probably not recommend this place so much. Do yourself a favor and go to Onyx: it’s only a few steps away, but a whole world apart as far as atmosphere and customer service go.
