Encore at Wynn
Opened in 2008, the Encore at Wynn serves as the hipper, 2.0 version of the slightly older Wynn Resort, which is next door. The Encore’s 2,034 rooms, starting at 745 square feet, are among the largest in Las Vegas. The most opulent of them, the Encore Tower Suites, form a hotel within a hotel, with a separate entrance, complimentary breakfast for two, and Tower Pool access. The Encore has fewer restaurant options than the Wynn, but its club scene is superhot; it includes XS, with its lineup of celebrity DJs and never-still dance floor, and the Encore Beach Club, which in the evenings becomes the Surrender nightclub.

Winning Hands in Las Vegas
What better place to enjoy a Good Luck Ritual than in Las Vegas? The spa at the Encore resort combines massage with treatments for hands, feet, and scalp, all based on the five Chinese elements. Feeling good is guaranteed. Striking it rich in the casino is not.

The Esplanades at Wynn and Encore
First, you will likely never encounter a sale on the Esplanades; this is about the experience of seeing a curated collection of shops that is unparalleled. For example, Givenchy bypassed New York to open its first boutique in the United States at the Wynn this year. Wynn & Company Watches features some of the rarest pieces —including some specially designed for Wynn. At Graff, I tried on a million dollar watch several months ago, and the moment is still etched in my brain. The beautiful shops all with impeccable service follow one after another. If you have a particularly good night at the tables, head to the Penske/Wynn Ferrari-Maserati showroom — the state’s only authorized Ferrari dealership. Too rich for your blood? Pick up a pair of the sleek loafers custom made for Ferrari by Tod's.
