Gambling put Las Vegas on the map, but experiences and activities that can’t be found elsewhere keep it there. That’s especially true after hours.
Most craft bars and cocktail lounges open by 5 p.m., allowing business travelers to go directly from their trade show, conference or meeting to a more relaxed space for networking or closing a deal. Single-spirit bars like Mama Rabbit Mezcal + Tequila Bar, gin-centric Juniper Cocktail Lounge, and mezcal-dominant Ghost Donkey and Rhumbar prove popular options.
Themed venues add a fun twist to the cocktail scene. Complete with ice chairs and tables, ICEBAR at The LINQ Promenade keeps things chill with drinks that get colder as the evening wears on. Downtown, Frankie’s Tiki Room serves tiki classics, and The Millennium Fandom Bar caters to Star Wars and cosplay fans.
Chef-driven restaurants still dominate the culinary scene in Vegas, but supper clubs are creating a buzz. Guests at The Mayfair Supper Club – Bellagio sip Champagne with caviar while singers, musicians and dancers perform center stage. The Vegas Room – Supper Club Cabaret in the Historic Commercial Center District presents a similar concept.
To sample several restaurants in one night, book a Lip Smacking Foodie Tour. Depending on the tour, guides lead small groups to up to five restaurants, sharing insights along the way. Savors of the Strip, the company’s most popular tour, visits four restaurants in three hours.
Following drinks and dinner, head to Area 15, an experiential entertainment and retail complex anchored by Meow Wolf’s latest immersive storytelling experience, Omega Mart. Area 15 also features a free-roaming virtual reality attraction; Haley’s Comet, a rollglider thrill ride; live music; and event spaces.
Vegas has always been known for its spectacular shows. For Cirque du Soleil fans who want to take things to the next level, Spiegelworld offers two options: Absinthe and Atomic Saloon Show. The sometimes- raunchy casts frequently interact with the adults-only audience.
Nightclubs abound in Vegas, though they trailed other types of venues in reopening. Partiers swarm OMNIA at Caesars Palace, Hakkasan at MGM Grand and Drai’s at The Cromwell even on weeknights, while the LGBTQ+ counterparts Piranha Nightclub and FREEZONE host drag shows, karaoke and themed nights.
After a stressful pre-holiday season and a busy work schedule, there was no better time for a relaxing spa experience than during my recent trip to Pasadena with the FXExpress Publications, Inc. team. We headed to The Langham Huntington, Pasadena for the 20th anniversary of the GT Tested Reader Survey awards, which meant a jam-packed trip, but I managed to carve a little time out of our busy schedule to visit Chuan Spa at the hotel.
