A fabulous weekend in Las Vegas must start with a fabulous dinner. The destination is filled with options to do just that, but a meal curated by James Beard Award-winning Nobu Matsuhisa at Nobu Las Vegas inside Virgin Hotels Las Vegas is most certainly an excellent choice. With an extensive sushi and sashimi menu complementing dishes like Beef Tenderloin Toban-Yaki and Lobster Truffle Tempura Amazu, there’s something for everybody at this iconic Japanese eatery.

Once you’ve fueled up for the evening with a fabulous dinner at Virgin Hotels, it’s just a short stroll to Las Vegas’ famed “Fruit Loop,” where a handful of gay bars and lounges offer an exciting night of entertainment. FreeZone Nightclub and Bar is the perfect post-dinner spot, where you can enjoy some cocktails while taking in a drag show or dancing to an eclectic soundtrack that your feet just can’t deny.
If you’re a fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race, you’ll likely want to watch the queens of RuPaul's Drag Race Live! serve up their signature looks at Flamingo Las Vegas. Take in all the “eleganza,” as popular queens like Derrick Barry and Jada Essence Hall take the stage to slay in all their sickening glory.

Brunch is the name of the game every weekend in Las Vegas, where you have your pick of delectable options and amazing extras. Enjoy a menu of sophisticated brunch offerings at Sadelle's Cafe at Bellagio Resort & Casino, where signature breakfast items are alongside fabulous dishes — which can be elevated with an order of caviar.
Drinking delicious cocktails and dancing always makes for a fabulous itinerary, but it’s also nice to take some time to slow things down. Do just that at The Forum Shops at Caesars where you can stroll the walkways lined with designer boutiques while enjoying top-notch culinary offerings. If you find yourself farther down the Strip, the Fashion Show Las Vegas also offers a retail therapy experience that’s absolutely enjoyable, complete with popular department stores, amazing boutiques, and a culinary collection facing the Strip that’s perfect for people-watching.

The Downtown Las Vegas restaurant and lounge, located in the heart of the vibrant Arts District, boasts a Bottomless Drag Brunch every Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy dishes like the Avocado Toast and Chicken & Waffles while indulging in endless mimosas, all while you take in performances from iconic queens like RuPaul’s Drag Race favorites Coco Montrese and Elliott with Two T’s.

A fabulous weekend in Las Vegas means that you have to end your weekend with a trip to Temptation Sundays at Luxor Hotel & Casino.

After spending the day under the sun at Luxor, it’s best to unwind and chill out at Charlie’s Las Vegas, which is known as a post-Temptation hot spot. The country-themed gay bar routinely offers appealing drink specials and features some amazing drag shows. This is exactly where you should end your fabulous weekend in Las Vegas — the perfect goodbye to the destination, until next time of course!
