I did not really hang-out in Cleopatra Barge in Caesars Palace, Las Vegas. I used to pass this area when I go inside Caesars Palace. Some people said that it is cheesy place to enjoy, have fun, dance, drink, or simply watching others. Some people simply love this place!
The first thing you notice is the bow of the ship as you walk by it inside the casino. Then you realize that this place is actually a bar on water inside a casino. They have a DJ and a band playing music here. Music from the 80’s or even five decades are also being played here.
Cleopatra Barge had also some facelift a few years ago and this classic lounge is newer, hotter and hipper. You can dance the night away, laugh and yes, people will be watching you.
Sad to say that I never spend a night listening to their band in Cleopatra Barge. What I only have was this image that I took when I passed-by. Sorry, it is not nicely taken.
A club venue that displays Cleopatra in a bosom-baring golden glory, as she is on the ship’s bow. Photo opportunity here. Nice Egyptian style atmosphere. No cover. Servers are attentive and quite conversationalists. Music is club-like and sounds loud in such a small club. It can be heard down the hall. Club patrons can go dancing on her barge as it floats on water. The barge’s oars move. Entry to the barge is by a short bridge which connects to the barge’s dancefloor. It’s like walking the plank like Wendy (that character from “Peter Pan”) without pirates urging me on. And so, dancing on the barge presents a very up-close proximity with the rest of the patrons on the dancefloor. A cramped dancefloor. It’s seems everyone wants to be on the barge. It’s fun, an awesome experience. It’s a-rockin’ to and fro as the barge moves to everyone’s dance rhythms. A scary thought: someone may topple overboard. Someone who may be a little light-headed from cocktail drink may lose balance or may be prone to ‘seasickness’ even though the barge is not on real big waves. That’s when the fun is funny serious. “Man overboard!” “”No nay ne’er!” Let’s just scamper for “Land-ho!” Cleopatra’s barge is a thrill.
