Explore the famous hotels and casinos that line the Strip and are home to the best restaurants, shows and clubs in Las Vegas. Although a wonder to explore year-round, the city is a delight to visit in the winter after the summer tourist season comes to a close. Once the playground of the rich and famous, from Frank Sinatra, to Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe, the bright lights and thrills of Las Vegas now attract millions of visitors each year.
There are plenty of bars and clubs here where you can let your hair down and party until dawn. The Minus5° Ice Bar at Mandalay Place offers a cooling break from the desert heat with its constant temperature of 23 degrees Fahrenheit. You’ll be given warm jackets, boots, and gloves upon entry, after which you can try chilled cocktails in glasses made of ice, surrounded by ice-carved sculptures and seating.
Head over to Noir Bar, below Club LAX in the Luxor, for unique cocktails, an ambient atmosphere, and winning DJs. A must-try are their irresistible carrot cake martinis and peanut butter and jelly cocktails.
There are plenty of nightclubs to choose from here but XS situated in Encore at the Wynn is a particular stand-out. If you’re prepared to brave the substantial queues and covers, you’ll find an impressive club atmosphere that features a range of talented guest artists, from Deadmau5 to Dillon Francis.
A city break in Las Vegas wouldn’t be complete without at least a glimpse of some of the more unusual casinos here. The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino recreates the architecture and interiors seen in Venice, with chandeliers, painted ceilings, marble columns, and even a lagoon where you can take a Gondola ride.
