Friday and Saturday’s are great nights for partying. But sometimes the work week requires a mid-week event to keep you from losing your mind; especially if your weekends are just as busy as your weekdays. **Raises hand**
So a Wednesday night happy hour is exactly what the Doctor ordered.
Neo-Soul Happy Hour has been the place to be for more than 2 years now. It recently moved locations to Bagatelle Supper Club inside the Tropicana Hotel, a step up from the Blue Martini, in my opinion.
The weekly event is put together by two of my favorite gentlemen in the city Devin Moore and John Harrison of BlackVegas.com. They both do a fabulous job every week making sure we all have a great time, and that’s no easy task with 400+ people coming in ready to let their hair down.
Tonight happens to be the launch of the “Wednesday Night Neo-Soul Happy Hour”. I was cool with Tuesdays, but Wednesday is hump day so what better way to celebrate getting through half of your work week then to hang with some of Las Vegas’ who’s who.
On any given week you may run into county commissioners, senators, radio and television personalities, hot-shot lawyers, authors, as well as local and national celebrities…and of course the Vegas Soulcialite always has a table front and center.
Bagatelle really is a hidden jewel on the Strip. I’d never heard of it before February, but then again the spot has changed names more times than I can count—that’s Vegas for you.
Lots of locals hate the Strip, but Bagatelle makes it easy with separate valet and self parking right off of Tropicana, so no parking garages or five-mile hikes to get to your destination. The entrance bypasses the casino and all the Las Vegas extras that we locals snub our nose at.
The white interior and crystal chandeliers give it a classy upscale feel. But the best part is the place is all ours… sort of. Of course others can come hang out but due to its ‘tucked away feel’ they don’t get a lot of off the street drop-ins. It’s more like a private club, just for the grown and sexy of Las Vegas.
The menu is tapas style–small bites including lettuce wraps, calamari, and veggie skewers, from about $7 to $9.
They don’t have a dedicated happy hour drink menu but they have a fabulous gin cocktail with muddled raspberry. I can never remember the name…but it comes in a champagne glass. Believe me; the server will know what you’re talking about.
Neo-Soul Happy hour is every Wednesday from 5:30pm-until you have to go home. Keep up with what’s happening on their Facebook page here.
