There’s an endless array of Vegas spots offering Father’s Day specials this weekend, but there’s one place that’s so special all year long, it’s always where dear old Dad wants to be.
After 12 years in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, Casa Fuente is a legitimate Las Vegas institution—so much more than one of the best places to enjoy a cigar in Sin City. A recent renovation added a more relaxing lounge area and a larger humidor, and the posh cigar and cocktail bar remains as popular as ever.
The signature experience—surely Dad’s go-to combo—is to enjoy the exclusive house blend Corona Gorda cigar with a classic mojito; it’s funny how you can walk into a luxury mall on the Las Vegas Strip and suddenly find yourself in Havana.
The best part about Casa Fuente? You can customize the fun. Start by browsing the underrated cocktail menu, maybe experimenting with the herbacious and flavorful Spicy Lover, made with 1800 tequila, lime juice and Tabasco. Once you have something to sip, you’re ready to have a look inside that humidor. And when you’ve chosen a smoke, explore Casa Fuente’s rare-spirits list to smooth out the edges. Rumor has it the bar added a bottle of 25-year-old Pappy Van Winkle to its “black list.” Pappy for Father’s Day? It doesn’t get any better than that. Casa Fuente at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, 702-731-5051; Sunday-Thursday 10 a.m.-11 p.m., Friday & Saturday 10 a.m.-midnight.
