It is perfectly located right in the center of the Strip, yet remains a something of a hidden treasure, as much as that is possible there. The Monte Carlo has been around for quite some time and is very large with tons of entertainment, dining and nightlife options. Not to mention an enormous 90,000 square foot casino floor. It is a beautiful structure with a fusion of European style and Vegas spunk.
The clientele varies quite a bit, from gaming enthusiasts to an older tourist crowd, to a younger group of party goers looking for a great time. Monte Carlo does not generally appeal to families however unlike a number of Strip hotel casinos. Monte Carlo has in recent years seen a number of upgrades and renovations in hopes of attracting both a more affluent and a younger crowd, and in large part the effort has paid off, the casino increasing its popularity even as a number of hotels on the Strip struggle.
Monte Carlo is a good option for anyone looking for a great Strip location at medium rates for the Strip. It is generally highly rated and it is often one of the last hotels on the strip to fill to capacity.

There are bars located on the casino floor, and drinks are free for gamblers. Tipping your cocktail waitress is customary. Diablo’s Cantina has a bar during the day and at night turns into a mix, something between a nightclub and a lounge with lax dress codes and live music.
The Street of Dreams shopping and dining area has several options. The Monte Carlo also has Luxury for Less, Monte Carlo Boutique, Nouveau News and Club Casino Royal on the grounds.
Diablo and Brand are not “clubs” by Strip club standards, they do however have live music and are popular party spots.
