Las Vegas: After Hours

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. Rose.Rabbit. Lie. at The Cosmopolitan 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 2.5 hours.

Following drinks and dinner, head to Area 15, an entertainment and retail complex anchored by Meow Wolf ’s latest immersive storytelling experience. Preparing to open later this year after the pandemic subsides, Area 15 will also feature a free-roaming virtual reality attraction, zip line roller coaster, 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 three options: Absinthe, Opium 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.

Creating a Wellness Environment in the Workplace

Creating a wellness environment in the workplace is a terrific idea, and many companies acknowledge the benefits of providing health and wellness programs to employees. However, the concept is anything but new. More than a century ago, Johnson & Johnson offered its New Jersey-based employees access to an on-site health center and a fitness center with a swimming pool and basketball court. In the 1970s, the company followed with the launch of Live for Life, an on-site wellness program with “access to behavior modification tools and education on topics like nutrition, stress management and more.”
