Featuring modern upgrades while preserving a vintage Vegas vibe, El Cortez was recently named to the National Register of Historic Places. A favorite with the locals, it's still rocking its famous Cafe Cortez $5 Beer & Burger Special from back in the day.
This luxury casino sports gorgeous accommodations, high-end restos (N9ne Steakhouse, Alize, Nove Italiano), and a spa/salon.
The Foundation Room, nestled inside Mandalay Bay, gets you plush sofas, dark hallways, and an epic view from the North end of The Strip. This shadow-y spot screams decadence in the form of seafood towers, bottle service, and members-only secret perks. Expect to see high rollers, socialites and trendsetters and maybe (or maybe not) feel woefully out of place.
Sitting where the former St. Tropez hotel did, Rumor's the anti-Vegas: two basically-gaming-free (video poker, what!) stories of luxe lodging boasting a South Beach vibe thanks to a 30,000sqft pool area with hammock-strung palm trees, a grassy area for picnics and events, and private cabanas that feeds into a sun-lit lobby featuring white marble floors, a bar, and eclectic seating including white patent leather couches and black suede Mad Hatter chairs, although hopefully not the disappointing Tim Burton ones.
This Downtown Bier Garten with a penchant for German spelling slings serious craft brews and German eats, like a pretzel they say serves four, but who are you kidding.
Perched atop the 400ft summit of Las Vegas Blvd, this 90-acre spread features 92,000 sq ft of gaming space, a 14-screen movie complex, 390 rooms culminating in the two-story Loft Suite, multiple wet bars, and a stunning stone and glass staircase for ascending nobly to your boudoir. The M is also known for its grand seafood-centric buffet, which includes free alcohol with the price of admission.
If you need to escape the desert heat with something sweet, check out Sprinkles at the LINQ. The cupcake empire’s Vegas location lives up to the hype, serving confectionary favorites like red velvet cupcakes and Captain Crunch ice cream. Don’t fret if your sugar tooth kicks in after hours—the shop is equipped with its legendary Cupcake ATM. Just look for the nearby High Roller Ferris wheel, and let your drunk munchies be your guide.
