7 Tips for Your Las Vegas Vacation

July 27, 2013

We just returned from 5 days in Las Vegas!  Seriously. LOVE. Vegas. Where else can I live like a rockstar at my age?? Lounge poolside by day, wear a dress that’s 10 years too young for me by night! Five days is my threshold, tho. An hour longer and my husband would’ve had to peel my fingers from the Star Wars slot machine.

This wasn't a typical trip for us. No hostels. No street markets. No chai wallahs. Don't worry, gypsies! Tradition wasn't totally thrown out the window. We managed to keep excessive booze, food and dancing in the mix. 
Vegas in your future? Here are 7 suggestions on where to savor your vices:

  • Sleep: The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Chic suites loaded with Jonathan Adler accessories, Phaidon design books, and killer art. Oh, and a live DJ spinning poolside. At 11 am. Stylish, young, hip, happy vibe. LOVE this place.

  • Dine (High): Mesa Grill @ Caesar’s Palace. Bobby Flay’s latest Vegas venture. Decor was so-so (I’m all about the view, which this place was lacking), but food was incredible!

  • Dine (Low): The secret pizza place @ The Cosmopolitan. Seriously, it’s secret and doesn’t have a name! Look for it near the entrance to The Marquee Nightclub.

  • Drink: Chandelier Bar @ The Cosmopolitan. Try the Cereal Killer, made with Cinnamon Toast Crunch infused milk or my personal fave: Fit To Be Thai’ed.

  • Dance: The Bank @ Bellagio. Awesome music, lots of energy and confetti rain. {photo below: if you look to the left of the chandelier, you can make out the tiny go-go dancer near the purple confetti. I wish I took more photos!}

  • Lounge: Tryst Nightclub @ The Wynn. Um, just go to Yelp and look at the photos. Talk about living like a rockstar!

  • Snack: Cafe Gelato @ The Bellagio. Coconut gelato!! I've made an excuse to visit this shop on every trip to Vegas. Hips don’t lie!
Have you been to Vegas? What’s something we can’t miss next time?
