ZEBRA LOUNGE ****** This lounge is located a bit to the side, tucked away in a snugly corner at the Palazzo Hotel and Casino Las Vegas.  All the same the two large columns bearing a very distinctive Zebra pattern make it kind of hard to miss, even for the less observant individual. You can still sense the casino presence around you (the bar opens up to the floor), nevertheless it seems a lot less overwhelming than at some more centrally situated venues. The ambience of the place can be described as welcoming and sexy, apart from the really cute Zebra motif you get very dim lights (courtesy and little crystal chandeliers hanging all over the ceiling) and candles on every table. The dark brown furniture is complemented by golden leather upholstery. Long velvet settee-style benches on the sides, accompanied by low coffee tables, complete the look. A small dance floor and stage provide ample opportunity for those in the mood to engage in some hopping around. Be warned, however, that the dance floor appears to be made in a rather provisory fashion and strongly reminds of one in a barn specifically created for a square dancing competition. An empty stage with no music would probably not be all that helpful in your dancing endeavors, unless, of course, you decided to become the star for the evening and executed a hostile take-over. Meaning you would grab the mike and refused to let go, singing your heart out and ignoring security frantically attempting to pull you away.  But here we come to the best part, namely the fact that this renowned establishment does offer live entertainment nightly. On the evening of our visit it consisted of a female/male duo, who played a mixture of Latino/Pop/Rock, but also some 80s and 90s hits. They generally presented a wide range of repertoire and both performers did a really good job, their voices were well matched and they slid into the different music genres quite effortlessly. The girl used this funny instrumental contraption with all kinds of devices attached to it, the guy mostly just played guitar, they both sang.  Together they definitely managed to get the guests moving, the sound of their gleefully thudding feet resonating all throughout the lounge. Perhaps it was just an off night, but the patrons at the lounge did not much resemble the crowd of beautiful people you so often encounter at such places.  Visitors of all shapes and sizes were united in their desire to enjoy themselves, dancing, laughing and having a genuinely great time. Well, most of them certainly appeared extremely lively; a few times I thought the dinky parquet would positively collapse under so much enthusiastic stomping. I found it all very heart-warming and loved the easy-going vibe of the place, with everybody relaxed and devoid of pretentious notions. The loudness of the music probably makes it more of a party place than a quiet bar to meet friends for a chat. Therefore I would highly recommend this lounge if you want to go somewhere upbeat, but without the hustles of a club, like standing in line for an hour to get in, paying a substantial cover and then continuing to torture your poor feet for the remainder of the night (most clubs in Vegas seem to have their seats reserved for bottle service only). There’s no cover here, you can plant your behind on a comfy chair and still go dancing if you like. They offer a good selection of wine, beer and cocktails. The servers, although unremarkable, made a nice enough impression.  Last but not least: they pour their drinks with a generous hand, always beneficial for so many party activities. If the alcohol doesn’t make you a better dancer, then at least it will help your fellow human beings endure your efforts with more tolerance and grace.
