It doesn't happen often (does it?), so doing it right is key. You're going to Vegas, you've got two nights and only so many hours to party, so...like I said...do it right. Get tables. Get bottle service. Live it up. Enjoy the dancers. Dance in the...

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...
520 Fremont St, Las Vegas, NV 89101, USA
The Beat Coffeehouse is part dive bar, part roadhouse, part concert hall, part cafe, but somehow, this combination works. It's a great place to catch a live show, chill out over a cappuccino (or a beer), and listen to tunes (on vinyl, of course)...

I fell in love with SushiSamba while living in NYC and was excited when they opened another location at the Shoppes at the Palazzo. I love traditional sushi, but SushiSamba has fun with their menu, which features a variety of creative rolls; their...
4455 Paradise Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89169, USA
An indulgent array of creative dishes and fantastic hand-crafted cocktails rules this menu, but I stop in for what can only be described as a girl's dream: hand-baked pretzel bites with cheese fondue. The restaurant has a prime location, with a...

Open 24 hours a day, Peppermill is an age-old diner that is both stuck in the past and hasn't gone out of style. It's one of the few free-standing restaurants still in existence on the Strip, and the tacky neon fascade makes it hard to miss in its...
3131 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109, USA
There is no shortage of bars in Las Vegas, but if I am going to relax from all the craziness that is Vegas and have a drink, my preference is to do it in a beautiful location like the Parasol Up at the Winn. There is a beautiful view of the Lake...

The Henderson Patty’s Closet, a franchise of the popular Vegas-born boutique, is filled with colorful dresses, tops, shoes, pants, and purses. Founder Patty Barba is a local celebrity around town, known for her fun style and loyal relationships....

Bauman Rare Books is well known among antiquarian booksellers, and marks a striking contrast to most of the shops and boutiques you'll find in Las Vegas. Having worked in the rare book business in the past, I can't resist a beautifully tooled...
525 Fremont St, Las Vegas, NV 89101, USA
As part of the downtown revitalization renaissance, one of the new, interesting places to open in the area has been Commonwealth, a stylish Prohibition-era cocktail bar complete with its own speakeasy. The cocktail menu consists of two types of...
770 N Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89101, USA
It has been known by many names; the Graveyard, the Neon Sign Museum, the Boneyard, the Neon Graveyard, and perhaps many more I'm not even aware of. When I visited what is now consolidated and called, most simply, the Neon Museum, an appointment...
5030 Spring Mountain Rd #6, Las Vegas, NV 89146, USA
Monta Ramen is the best of both worlds—reasonably priced, and a widely thought of as the best ramen in Las Vegas. The menu is simple and straightforward, the dishes authentic and executed well, and the restaurant has a friendly and relaxed...

In recent years, there has been an awesome pizza trend in Las Vegas. Gone are the days when the average toss-it-in-the-oven pie was the only option; today, there are fun local pizza eateries, high-end gourmet pies and even hidden alcoves housing...
Level 1, The Chelsea Tower, 3708 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109, USA
Vesper Bar is one of the best lobby bars in Las Vegas, hands down. The cocktails in Vesper Bar are innovative and hit the spot just perfectly after a long day, but what makes this lounge particularly perfect is the fact anyone is welcome to simply...
