Bellagio lobby

The Bellagio is one of the prettier casinos. Besides the big glass covered Conservatory they have a Chihuly sculpture “Fiori di Como” as the lobby ceiling.

Which is always complimented by large arrangements of live flowers. Behind the check in desk is a large area that is also decorated for each season. The Bellagio has several large greenhouses where they grow the plants for the conservatory and hotel decoration.

Right off the lobby is the Petrossian Bar , raised a little above the casino floor it is an open place to sit, with nice seats, have a drink, take a break and watch the crowds. They have ‘traditional Afternoon Tea’ every day, and for the holidays some special cocktails (which we did try this time, after all I wasn’t driving). There is a good view of the casino floor to the left and the lobby to the right, and hundreds of people wandering by.

When walking around the center Strip it is usually a stop for us.

Hey Joe! One of these days, we will run into each other. I like this bar, too.

I love Chihuly glass! We stayed at the Alexis in Seattle once and Chihuly exhibited there. Beautiful.
