Go Big or Go Home at Hakkasan
In the spirit of going big or going home, Hakkasan Las Vegas is a nightclub that basically outdoes all other when it comes to size and entertainment. To begin with, there is a two-story restaurant, which has a contemporary design and offers the perfect place to warm up for an evening in the nightclub. The club, which encompasses levels three, four and five, has a variety of rooms, each with its own feel and vibe. Level three consists of the Ling Ling Room and Club, which are chic and, in the case of the lounge area, dark and sleek as well. The main nightclub is located on the fourth floor; this is where party goers can watch DJs like Calvin Harris, R3hab and Tiesto perform. The fifth floor houses the Pavilion, which has an outside-type of energy. Come for dinner and stay all night long, rotating between the many nightlife experiences to say you've done a little bit of everything in Las Vegas.

Excellent Chinese Food at Hakkasan
While I am a sucker for Hakkasan's dim sum platter, my true favorite is the to-die-for crispy duck salad. (Even while dining vegetarian one evening, I had to sneak in an order.) But everything at this brand-new restaurant at MGM Grand is delicious. Ask for recommendations—the staff has never steered me wrong. The nightclub is a whole different animal. While it grabs the hottest DJs in the world and has several levels of fun, I am not the girl to give insider info on it. I've heard great things—but the restaurant, I can promise first-hand, is a must-try!
