Now that the weather is warmer, it’s time to scope out new places that offer the ultimate evening outdoor drinking experience. Green Valley Ranch in Las Vegas is one of them. The luxurious resort recently transformed its lobby patio into the Backyard at Sundown, a new outdoor pop-up lounge.
The Backyard at Sundown, which overlooks the Backyard Pool, is the perfect place to have a night out during the spring and summer months. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and lively atmosphere with Instagram-worthy cocktails created by Chelsea Caplin, corporate mixologist for Station Casinos, which are considered some of the best offshore casinos in the USA.
“The cocktails for Backyard at Sundown were inspired by multiple destinations known for their beautiful cocktails, including Mexico, Palm Springs, and Europe,” she says. “Everyone needs a vacation right now. These cocktails are meant to transport you on a mini-vacation through an adventurous presentation but still very approachable flavors.”
The “Backyard Sips” menu includes A Thousand Blossoms, Botanical Soiree, English Garden, The Hunny Bear, Old Fashioned Romance and Weekend In Coronado, all priced at $13 each.
