We chose to sit a bar because it is an open air lounge and the smoke from the casino floor is heavy.
Our first bartender was friendly and courteous, taking the time to explain everything to us. However for some reason about halfway through a new batch of bartenders showed up so the guy we had was sent to the other end of the bar and then we had Lisa who ended up being snippy and condescending. She treated my wife rudely. Ruined the night. Never going back. When you spend the money to have a nice time out, the staff should always make you feel important not like their doing you a favor by serving you.

Service was horrible. They didn’t charge us right and we didn’t pay attention since we were talking to another group of people from where I grew up. Waitress had to run us down with another bill before we got away. Horrible experience. We’d had much better visits in the past.

Great cocktails, and great music! Try to reserve a table; it's worth it with their fancy comfy couches. They also played a lot of East Coast 90's hip-hop on Friday, so if I go again, that'll definitely be the day if they rotate DJs on different days like a lot of the other Vegas clubs.

Not interested in listening to rap and foul language songs. Waitress was rude when we asked what was taking so long for our food. The glass of Cabernet was warm and of poor quality. Too bad because the atmosphere (seating and decor) was nice.

Glad we made a reservation, it was crowded when we went. We met some friends there, but the noise level was a bit high: we could hear the conversation of the group next to us clearly! The down side was the smoke from the casino was very strong, and my eyes teared up and throat burned (we were seated next to the casino, and there is no window to separate it) The staff did draw the curtains, but it didn't really help. So if you are sensitive to smoke like I am, make sure to request a table away from the casino. I had a non-alcoholic drink made with ginger and enjoyed it very much $10. Our small-bite was very tasty. Service was attentive

The mixologist are over the top! The environment and the seating extraordinarily comfortable and the music was excellent. Unfortunately however the establishment must be run by the mixologist for the concierge and the service was extraordinarily poor had to call out for service had asked for a second cocktail in an environment that is asking $20 for a mixed drink which is highly worth it because the mixologist are so good. I will not return however unfortunately if you’re looking for a great drink this is a great place if you’re looking for service this is not.

We were looking for a "grown up" place to have drinks. Something more sophisticated than a nightclub, and Dorsey fit that bill up until about 10pm when they doubled the volume on the music. It went from and urbane, cosmopolitan mix to a very loud DJ who was playing music that really didn't fit the atmosphere. It wasn't bad music, but it didn't fit the clientele or the setting at all. It was the very thing we were trying to avoid. There's a place for loud DJs but it's not at the Dorsey.

Although the drinks were good, it wasn’t anything over the top. Service was okay, could have been better for what we have received at other venues in Vegas. The ladies were beautiful that served us but as shared nothing major about the drinks.

For a casino lounge, this is the tops! Cocktails and service were fantastic. We booked a table in the library and loved the cool ambience. It felt more separated from the casino which was nice. Will be back the next time we visit Vegas.

This is a great place to start the night off in Vegas. The DJ starts at 10pm so we got the around 9:45, the lounge music is meh, but the DJ gir us moving on our seats. The drink menu is pretty intense- I'm a vodka girl and they have no vodka mixers... no cranberry no Red Bull nothing... so I didn't drink. We stayed for about an hour and went to go find a fun bar.

The Dorsey is awesome great service very nice waitress an hostess but the cocktail beverages I didn't like it was only mixed drinks for $20 i couldn't get what I wanted an this is an expensive bar I like bloody Mary's an I couldn't get one I was told they had something similar an it was horrible it was like a mixed tropical drink with hot sauce not kool. I will recommended my friends to come because of the atmosphere an u can reserve a table an its free. But I will not come back because I cant drink anything to have fun.

Loved the library effect, the drinks were different and delicious, and our server was knowledgeable and very persoable! Only criticisom is when we asked for water with ice , we were served bottled water in a flimsy plastic bottle and no glass. I'm not a snob but if this is a first class bar you don't serve bottled water unless asked for!

I went to the Dorsey 3 times in one week. I liked it until the 3rd visit. I made an OpenTable reservation to make sure that I would get a nice place to sit. When I arrived the hostess was nasty and chastised me for being late. Literally agitated...I explained to her that my meal at the B&B restaurant in her casino ran really late and the service took a long time. She sat me in the worst little table next to a big opening to the casino (bright lights, people screaming and casino slot noise) and very uncomfortable seats. There were literally 10 or more other sofas or areas that she could seat me, so I got up and sat on a sofa next to the table...she immediately came up and asked my party to get out of the seats. She told us to go over to the fireplace area. Once we sat at the fireplace area another server made us move because it was reserved. We finally sat down and spent $125 on drinks and left in 40 minutes. This, mind you, it a casino lounge....not a high end night club. Classic bad attitudes and overhype.
