Indie Rock Cafe
The rooftop bar is a great attraction of the Strip and anybody would have a wonderful time here. Indie Rock Cafe DJs play classic music by Oasis, The Smiths and the Kaiser Chiefs.

It is situated in the center of the Strip and is always buzzing with workers here and there trying to get off their hangovers and waitresses moving around on roller skates. You find a variety of tasty things on the menu and padded, comfortable booths.
- Look for restaurants that has Greek people inside, if there are none – it’s probably a bad sign.
- The cheap alcohol in many bars and clubs is also of bad quality – keep that in mind.
