Bellini Lounge Music Bar at Venetian Macau: the place to be in town!

29 April 2011

You might be surprised to find that one of the friendliest bars in town is located in a corner of the casino floor of The Venetian. The Bellini Lounge may sound and look posh, but it’s actually a down-to-earth watering hole which attracts a stylish crowd aged mostly from their late 20s to late 40s. Most are here not just becaue they’re taking a break from gambling, but have made the trip specially to enjoy live music in the company of friends.

The huge couches and vast space mean you’ll usually be able to get a comfortable seat, and not worry about having smoke being blown in your face by a stranger while jostling for standing room. There are also plenty of bar stools up by the impressively long bar, where solo guests can perch and enjoy the live entertainment, while being entertained by the bartender.

Two live resident bands provide entertaining covers of Top 40 hits, R&B numbers every night, but aren’t too loud or intrusive so as to prevent conversation. The large bar is quite quiet during the day, and during weeknights attracts after-work suits as well as tourists. 

During weekends, and their Ladies Nitz (free drinks for women) every Wednesday from 8pm, it starts to get packed with an eye candy crowd of models, dancers and expatriates.

There is a wide selection of wines and premium spirits as well as coctails on the menu, and Bellini is well staffed with friendly and knowledgable staff who are only too happy to help. The bar is also known for having some of the prettiest and most professional and attentive female staff members in Macau.

Try the house specialty cocktail, the Bellini, which is made of fresh peach, schnapps and champagne, other popular drinks include champagne cocktails made with mango and fruit blends.

Address: Shop 1041 (On the casino floor) – Venetian Casino – Macau
Tel: +853 8118 9940

Open: 4:00 pm – 4:00 am (Mondays – Fridays);
