Hi Ted,I really enjoy the newsletter and the infrequent podcasts. The podcasts are the way I first became aware of your great insights. I hope you can keep it up.

How about giving us some advice as to where we might find some nice, quiet, cocktail lounges where we could hear some smooth jazz, a la piano bar or small combo, singer, etc. You get the idea. I’ve been coming to Vegas ever since my parents took us kids to stay at the Dunes, Riviera and Tropicana. I’m now 66 years old and I still like to visit every few months or so. But, except for the Baccarat Lounge at Bellagio, I haven’t been able to find many others. Can you help?

Keep up the good work.

Ted Responds:


Podcasts will be back in a few weeks (finally), and on a regular basis. We’ve been stretched very thin with a pending upgrade (expanding into other cities, more to come on that down the road) and training new hires. The podcast is probably the most fun, but unfortunately most expendable of the things I do.

Besides the lounge you mentioned at Bellagio, Harrah’s Range Steakhouse usually does nightly. You don’t have to eat there. They have an intimate little lounge that overlooks The Strip (indoors), nice place to relax. Many events (including in tourism areas) come and go. Certain local jazz and smooth jazz artists will play a few lounge dates here and there. These events are usually noted at

Hope this helps!
