There is a reason Las Vegas is called the world’s adult playground. The beauty of this city is that you can be a better version of yourself while you’re here, and whatever that may be is up to you. When you spend your next weekend in Vegas, we challenge you to put away your “everyday self” and bring on your “Vegas self.”
There are endless ways to do a weekend in Vegas right. If suiting up and being an elevated version of yourself sounds like your style, here’s how to achieve exactly the kind of VIP Vegas you desire.
Step 1: You can’t be ready to conquer Vegas like a VIP without the proper duds. Don’t worry; you can get the best of the best here.
Stitched at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas will hook you up with made-to-measure designer suits so your sartorial tastes can be on point. At the Cosmopolitan Shops, ladies will find a Rent the Runway store so that they may have a truly couture experience as well.
For more options, The Shops at Crystals has the world’s most exclusive retailers all in one place, and The Forum Shops at Caesars is known as “The Shopping Wonder of the World” with 160 specialty stores and fine restaurants.
Step 2: Walk among works by some of the world’s most famous fine artists.
A true Vegas sophisticate deserves to be surrounded by beauty. Every year, the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art features a different exhibit that always showcases an amazing collection of works, from Degas to van Gogh and more.
Another tip: You can check out James Turrell’s Akhob exhibit hidden behind the Louis Vuitton store at The Shops at Crystals. Visitors are immersed in different colored light and usually leave the 20-minute installation feeling rested. Be sure to make reservations ahead of time.
Step 3: You are what you eat, so splurge on the lobster prepared by a celebrity chef.
The fresh Mediterranean cuisine at Costa di Mare at Wynn is sure to make a statement. More than 40 varieties of fresh fish are flown in daily from the coastal waters of Italy. Indulge in the six-course, prix fixe menu that celebrates the best-loved dishes of six Italian seaside regions.
If you’re feeling French, put on your formalwear and visit Three Michelin Star restaurant L’Atelier del Joël Robuchon at MGM Grand. This experience promises to be one of the finest meals of your life.
Step 4: Get a Lamborghini for the day and cruise down the Strip in style.
Your transformation isn’t quite complete without a cool ride. Rent your dream car from its wide selection of exotic, luxury and classic cars with Beverly Hills Rent a Car of Las Vegas. If you prefer a racetrack, drive the exotic car of your choice around with Dream Racing Driving Experience or Exotics Racing.
Step 5: See fancy. Be fancy.
Speaking of fine art, Le Rêve − The Dream is the water-based show at Wynn that was inspired by a 1932 painting of the same name by Pablo Picasso. The painting, which portrays Picasso’s mistress, is colorful and abstract—qualities that are embodied in the show.
Another visually stunning show is O by Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio. The cast boasts 85 acrobats, and synchronized swimmers and divers that perform in and above a 1.5 million-gallon pool. Immerse yourself in the incredible entertainment Vegas has to offer for a true luxury experience.
Step 6: Don’t apologize for your champagne tastes. Instead, make those dreams come true.
Charles Dickens once said, “Champagne is one of the elegant extras in life,” and we wholeheartedly agree. Get bubbly at MR CHOW at Caesars Palace, where you’ll be greeted with a trolley featuring a selection of premium champagnes and specialty cocktails made with fresh ingredients.
For winos, head over to Twist by Pierre Gagnaire at Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas for its award-winning wine program and sommelier.
When it comes to your Las Vegas vacation, you can play it exactly how you want. This is the city to indulge and reward yourself with amazing experiences you deserve. What better place to transform yourself into a sophisticate than Vegas?
