The Las Vegas Eat, Play & Listen Guide

Share:

There’s fun to be had in Vegas  – and of course the beauty of Sin City is that you just might be able to turn a small budget into a bigger one. Here’s a look at some of the highlights for Las Vegas visitors. Below is a look at the casinos, hotels, restaurants and entertainment options that’ll make your trip memorable.

Gamble

Of course, nobody goes to Vegas without at least considering doing a little gambling. For newcomers, the most important factor in choosing where to bet your hard-earned money is trust. SportsInteraction recently reported that the Wynn Las Vegas was the highest rated casino in Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Most Trusted Brands” list. The building itself is a gleaming gold curve, unmissable on the skyline, and features all the games you’d expect, including slots, blackjack and craps. There are also daily poker tournaments.

Stay

The Wynn has luxurious rooms but if you can find less luxurious options in the Fremont Street area.  The Golden Gate is over a century old, but the rooms have been recently renovated and represent a real bargain.

Eat

Most people know that it’s possible to drink more or less for free if you’re gambling at many casinos in Vegas, but there are also a huge range of dining options. High rollers will want to try Bar Masa at Aria, run by Japanese chef Masa Takayama, a veteran of the New York restaurant scene. The sashimi is flown across the Pacific several times a week and meals can set you back hundreds of dollars.

Also try the pizzas at Settebello on Green Valley Parkway – they’re excellent, authentically Italian and don’t forget Vegas’ legendary all-you-can-eat buffet

 Listen

 

Entertainment options vary from huge shows and megastar performances to hot, sweaty bars with live bands. Rod Stewart appears at the Colosseum, Caesars Palace in September and October, with tickets starting at $74. Dinner & ticket specials are on offer.

To get closer to the spirit of rock & roll, try a visit to the Double Down Saloon on Paradise Road. The DDS never closes and there’s live music every night; acts have included Supersuckers and the Vibrators.
