Have you been dreaming of a weekend completely free from obligations? Career, bills, kids’ soccer games: everything on ice for a few days of well-earned freedom? No more fretting, no more scheduling, no more putting others first, every second of every day? Well, you’re in luck. Because this time, we’ve done the work for you. It’s high time you took a break – scroll down to discover the you-centric Vegas weekend of your dreams.
You deserve the best, so why not experience one of the city’s most opulent digs: Bellagio. The Tower Suites boast unrivalled views of the Strip and supersized tubs, so you can sip champagne, gaze out at the shimmering lights, and soak in a bubble bath fit for Cleopatra. After your drawn-out decompression session, float downstairs to the city’s most beloved pool, grab a private cabaña, and order a 60-minute Springtime Renewal Massage. Or rent a convertible and soak up the wild desert views at nearby Red Rock Canyon or Valley of Fire. It’s your weekend, and you’re free to spend it any way you please.
Next up: shopping. You’ll want to look the part for the heavenly nights ahead. So grab an Uber and jet on over to The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. Will it be Louis Vuitton, Gucci or Balenciaga? It’s a tough choice, but ultimately, it’s up to you – and only you – to decide. If you’re in the mood for a makeover, perhaps consider popping into COLOR Salon by Michael Boychuck at Caesars Palace. It’s a favorite of Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Lopez, so a star-quality look is guaranteed.
The weather is perfect and your cellphone is set to silent. You haven’t felt this good in years, right? Time to pick up some party fuel for the night to come. Sad sandwich on the fly? Not in Vegas! Start the evening you mean to go on with a candlelit dinner at Lakeside at Wynn Las Vegas. Award-winning chef David Walzog’s ocean-to-table seafood is flown in from Hawaii to arrive on your plate ultrafresh and ultradelicious. If Vegan is more your thing, try Simply Pure. The 100 percent plant-based menu features locally sourced ingredients, and the restaurant is within easy walking distance of some of downtown’s most enticing clubs and bars. Slip into the speakeasy-style Downtown Cocktail Room through a secret door, and order a Beauregarde (bourbon, blueberry Amaro and salted cream).
The moon is out, and the sky is clear and bright with stars. It’s cocktail hour: Time to test out your new outfit on the glittering Strip. As ever, the choice of venue is yours. Will it be champagne and superstar DJs at Intrigue at Wynn Las Vegas, Chateau at Paris Las Vegas, or Jewel at Aria Las Vegas? Or will you transport yourself to Northern Italy with a moonlit gondola ride at The Venetian? Maybe you’re more in the mood for a date with some of the world’s biggest music stars? If so, make a beeline for T-Mobile Arena. This 20,000-seat mega venue has hosted the likes of U2, Pink and Justin Timberlake.
Any way you play it, you’re in for a treat. And the adventure is far from over. At the end of the evening, glide back to Bellagio, pull those floor-to-ceiling blackout shades, and luxuriate in your king-size bed. Remember: no work tomorrow, no school run, no commitments whatsoever. Just a whole heap of headspace, and a city like no other to explore. This is The Land of You, remember? You’re in control – and anything goes.
