Insider Tip:
Order an Aviation Cocktail. Most bars will prepare the drink with a paper plane as a garnish. The cocktail includes maraschino liqueur and dry gin.

You won’t find any aviation-related props here, but the name certain deserves credit. This cocktail bar and lounge inside the Luxor opens at 5 p.m.
