A common thing to hear about Vegas is how nothing EVER seems to close. While most are used to a typical 2 a.m. last call, here, it’s more like a whenever-we-feel-like-it closing time.
And when you’re having fun in a 24-hour town like Las Vegas, it’s easy to lose track of time. Whether it’s day or night, it doesn’t really matter because Vegas continues to blur those lines that determine when you *should* be enjoying yourself, and instead giving you the freedom to let that be whenever and however you want.
1. No matter what time the clock reads, it may be daytime thanks to the “skies” at the Forum Shops at Caesars. If you’re there long enough, it’ll change to “night” and throw all time constraints out the window.
2. Pool time. That obviously happens during the day, right? Not when you are talking about Encore Beach Club’s EBC Pool at Night at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, home of the Nightswim. Need even more poolside action? Step into Crimson at Sundown at Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa every Friday and Saturday starting at 7 p.m. for cool music, eclectic drinks and light bites.
3. Breakfast for dinner is always a good idea, and keeps the boundaries open for what time it really is. Go old-school cool at Siegel’s 1941 at the El Cortez Hotel & Casino in Downtown Las Vegas. It’s open 24/7 so you can eat what you want, when you want.
4. The Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden is one of the most beautiful spots in Las Vegas and just calls out to be explored late. The seasonally-changing display is free and visiting at night with fewer crowds will make you feel like you have the floral wonderland to yourself.
5. Get lost in three levels of crystal glamour that is The Chandelier Lounge at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Grab a round of expertly crafted cocktails courtesy of the master mixologists that vary from floor to floor. Sitting in the shimmering beauty, you most likely won’t care if it’s 4 a.m. or 4 p.m.
