Friends Celebrating Birthday in Las Vegas

There’s no doubt about it, Las Vegas is the ultimate spot for birthdays. Bars, restaurants, casinos, and nonstop activities make this city fit for any type of partier at any age. But with so much to do, it can be difficult to choose the best Las Vegas birthday ideas for you – but we’re here to help. Start planning your birthday now with these tips to ensure you have the best birthday party in Las Vegas and create memories that will last a lifetime!


Drink & Dine


If you fancy a birthday drink (or two, or three, or…), then Las Vegas is the place to be. While there are drinks abound from restaurants, casinos, and nightclubs, you can also find unique bar experiences around the city to make your birthday even more special. Check out the flair bartenders at D Bar where you can enjoy classic frozen drinks and enjoy the energy of Fremont Street, the best rooftop views of the city at Legacy Club with craft cocktails and an extensive whiskey selection, exciting sports and poolside drinks at Stadium Swim, and secretive speakeasies.

Your Birthday is as good of a time as any to indulge in the delicacies of Las Vegas cuisine. Treat yourself to a nice birthday night out at Andiamo Steakhouse and Barry’s Downtown Prime, where you can order a delicious meal and celebrate with a bottle of Champagne. Need something more casual after the birthday celebrations or to recover from the night before? Authentic Detroit hot dogs at American Coney Island, classic Carolina BBQ at Project BBQ, Asian-inspired meals at 8 East, and delicious burgers and wings at Victory Burger are just a few of the mouth watering options sure to satisfy any craving. 

As cliché as it is, consider dawning a birthday hat or sash. People around town will love to celebrate with you and you might find yourself receiving some gifted drinks as a present!


Friends Celebrating Birthday at Stadium Swim Pool in Vegas


Hang Out at the Pool


Taking the time to recharge is vital to keeping your party going, and what better way to do that than relaxing by the pool? If an awesome pool-side experience is what you’re after, Circa Stadium Swim® at Circa Resort boasts six pools, a 143-foot screen, over 300 lounge chairs, and 30 daybeds. While staying at the D, you get 2 free passes to Stadium Swim for a day (or night) of watching sports, drinking drinks, and enjoying some great food. Make it even more special by renting your own cabana for your whole birthday crew. What’s even better about Stadium Swim is the year-round access, meaning that even winter babies can enjoy the heated pools (and maybe even do a birthday shotski).


Activities & Excursions


For the thrill seekers, there are awesome birthday experiences in and outside city limits. If you want to stay local, you can choose from a range of things, including zip lines, exotic cars, golfing, helicopter tours, and thrill rides atop the tallest observation deck in the country. All of this is available without having to leave the city! And depending on when your birthday is, it might just land on one of the exciting music festival weekends in Vegas, which seems like a pretty great way to celebrate.

Want to leave the town for a little bit? Las Vegas is also conveniently located near beautiful natural landscapes that you can explore with an easy day trip. Some of the most beautiful spots to visit are the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Lake Mead, the Valley of Fire, Seven Magic Mountains, and the Grand Canyon. Just make sure you pack sunscreen and your walking shoes! If you didn’t road trip over to Vegas, be sure to rent a car so you can easily explore outside of the city.


Friends in Casino for Las Vegas Birthday Celebrations


Visit the Casino


Getting $20 in a birthday card from your great aunt is sweet, but we don’t blame you if you want to try to win some extra birthday cash. Raise the stakes on fun at the casino – a Vegas staple you need to add to your birthday celebration list. Las Vegas casinos have a game for every player, which is perfect if you have a birthday crew celebrating with you. Try your hand at the slots, sit down for some blackjack, see the Dancing Dealers, and grab a drink from the D’s famous LONGBAR, situated right on the casino floor and complete with some flair bartenders. Just don’t spend all your birthday money at once!

For those more interested in sports, visit Circa Sportsbook – the largest sportsbook in the world, Circa is a destination that you won’t want to miss where you can experience the three-story-tall sportsbook on the casino floor. You’ll also be able to find a location at the D, where you can place your bets and grab a drink at the Canadian-themed BarCanada® nearby while cheering on your favorite team. And if you need to head to your next Las Vegas birthday activity, you can still keep your bets going on your phone with the Circa Sports app.

Pro-Tip: many casinos offer free casino drinks for players, making it the perfect pre-game to your birthday night out. You can also sign up for the Club One players card and start getting even more benefits at the D, Golden Gate, and Circa Las Vegas – kind of like little birthday gifts!
