It’s a British invasion! The London-based AllSaints retail brand really only started to infiltrate the states about 10 years ago, but I can’t get enough of its edgy jackets, denim and hand-beaded sequin dresses. There are only a few boutiques in the U.S. and the new 12,000-square-foot Forum Shops at Caesars location is the second in Vegas. This mega-sized, two-story gem is the second largest in the brand’s global portfolio and has been crowned a flagship.
This Las Vegas shopping hot spot carries a few exclusive items, styles and colors so you’re not likely to run into someone else wearing the same thing when you get back home. But the most thrilling exclusive to hit its shelves is the women’s bag capsule collection. The Forum Shops AllSaints is the only place that physically carries the entire 17 piece collection, all made from premium Italian leather. The bags are a follow up to The Biker Project Part 1, which was all about its limited edition set of iconic biker jackets. The style of the bags draws influence from this, with studs and gun metal hardware detailing.
Made from 100 percent cow or lamb, leather jackets are one of AllSaints’ trademarks that I go all “Rachel Zoe” over. The butter-soft fall fashion staples come in a few different colors, from deep burgundy to classic black. I personally loved the Alford Biker, a two-in-one style where the sleeves zip off from exposed zippers to reveal a vest. The store is definitely primed to get you ready for cooler weather, with plenty of sweaters, wraps, coats, boots and skinny jeans. Most of the garments fall into the brand’s signature color palette of black, white, grey, cream and a few deep jewel tones.
The English vibe of the clothes definitely permeates the entire store, and is evident in the interior design aesthetic. Much like its leather and denim, it has an industrial look. Think an exposed ceiling, loft vibe and plenty of brick and wood. The steel beams were imported from London as was the authentic vintage telephone booth that now houses a flat screen for placing internet orders.
As a nod to much of its meticulous stitching and embellishments done by hand, several vintage sewing machines are present throughout the store. The largest one—a Paris import dating back to 1906—is right at the entrance, and was used decades ago to sew sails together for boats. In contrast to the earthy, raw décor, there are also numerous digital display screens streaming unique videos produced by AllSaints Studios.
I don’t know if it was the exclusive handbags, the sequin tops or the jeans with that perfect raw, worn-in look, but I’m definitely making AllSaints my new fall fashion fling.

It’s not always about the Red Bull-cranberry-vodka cocktails at EDM nightclubs. Sometimes you just want a good, old-fashioned beer, coupled with gambling or the latest sports game. And with the football season frenzy just beginning, there’s no better time than to do a little brewski research. Here are the hottest spots to kick back with a craft beer in Las Vegas.
TAG just may be the star standout for where to drink a beer in Las Vegas. Opened earlier this year at The Quad, TAG boasts more than 300 craft, domestic and import brews from around the world. Think rare selections from around the world, a beer-infused menu of “hoptails” and draft spouts literally on your table, so you can pour to your heart’s desire. In addition to its beer-heavy menu, the setting is heaven for both sports and gaming enthusiasts. It’s complete with 40 screens to watch the latest sports games, and has 60 interactive electronic games including touchscreen table top gaming units. TAG is also the only place in town to feature multi-hand blackjack dealers on a hologram. Bonus: There’s also a betting station at the bar, saving a trip to the sports book.
If you’re a beer aficionado, Yard House at The LINQ should be one of the first stops on your list. There are literally pages of the menu devoted to beer, all categorized including the genre, alcoholic content, origin city and price by “shorty, pint and half yard.” The brand has its own craft beers, or you can get into trying a few seasonal ciders. The handy taste notes make it easy to find what you’re looking for, from bitter or floral to malty or dark. There are even two creative beer blends. We like the Rose Gaarden: Hoegaarden White plus Framboise, plus beer floats, six pack samples and 160 draft beers. The seasonal and limited drafts are the most intriguing, so taste testa few pumpkin flavored brews to get you in the Autumn mood.
Want a contemporary, but laid-back atmosphere to grab some grub and catch a few games? Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace not only features gourmet food by the acclaimed British chef, but plenty of televisions screening the latest sports and a long list of beers by the glass or pint, obvi. (Try the Pacific Pear and Draft Cider.) Las Vegas’ best pub experience also recently introduced its new Hell’s Kitchen Happy Hour.Look forward to $5 13-ounce draft beers, with a $2 upgrade for a 20oz pint, $5 draft wines, and $5 pub snacks. These specials are available Monday through Friday, from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Caesars Palace’s Lobby Bar recently completed a swanky renovation—and so did its cocktail menu. Now packed with super fancy, hand-crafted drinks created by famed mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim, there’ something for every taste. Want to drink like a real high roller? Order the Tennessee Highball #2, a concoction of an exclusive, limited edition Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select Tennessee Whiskey, fresh-squeezed lemon juice, Fee Brothers orange bitters, Fever-Tree ginger beer and gomme syrup. Priced at $50 a drink, savoring each drop of this ultra-premium rare drink is worth every penny.
If you don’t venture to Bally’s Las Vegas’ BLT Steak for its swanky Sterling Brunch, at least sidle up to the bar for a few drinks before hitting Liaison Nightclub or “Jubilee.” We love the Cool Woodford with Woodford Reserve and ginger beer. Even better? Guests can enjoy these cocktails half-priced at the bar from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m., daily.
All-American chef and television personality Guy Fieri is someone we’d love to kick back and have a beer with—and his new restaurant at The Quad offers several choices. Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar features a long list of beers to enjoy with his Double Barrel BBQ Wings. Ace Perry Cider and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale join staples like Miller Lite and Blue Moon. Feeling bold? You can take Guy’s beer flight through Flavortown with 16 beers for $38. Never to be outdone, Fieri is also hip to the beer cocktails trend, too. His Rebel Dragon drink includes ginger beer, while the Java Guava is topped with Thai chili beer.
Offering killer drink deals in an easy breezy (and boozy) scene, Margaritaville at Flamingo invites you to drift away to its own version of paradise, right on Las Vegas Boulevard. While enjoying a lively bar scene and nightly entertainment, you’ll love the three-level restaurant’s island fare, huge portions and slushy, fruity drinks. Order buckets of beer or by the glass. Angry Orchard Hard Cider, Goose Island, Guinness Draft, Stella Artois and Breckenridge Agave Wheat are a few of the specialty beers. Feeling adventurous? The Loaded Landshark drink features LandShark Lager topped with Margaritaville Island Lime Tequila.
The kitschy, whimsical Serendipity 3 may be renowned for its Frrrozen Hot Chocolate, but its location at Caesars Palace, view and happy hour make it high on our beer list. Among an All-American menu, enjoy $5 happy hour specials from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. daily, including a variety of beers and small bites. The whole restaurant was recently remodeled with an expanded outdoor patio that includes a full-service bar sitting thisclose to The Strip with killer outdoor scenery.
Located in Planet Hollywood Resort’s hot shopping destination, Miracle Mile Shops, Sin City Brewing Co. is a casual, walk-up bar with several choices of beer made right in Nevada. There are five custom brews plus a seasonal flavor, but we like The Dark Side of Skin—a traditional Irish Dry Stout with hints of coffee and chocolate.
Beer pong tournaments are the name of the game at O’Sheas, where its Lucky the Leprechaun mascot encourages drinking by the pint. This combo pub-casino at The LINQ is an ideal place to listen to live music, hit the table games or kick back and peruse more than 50 types of beer. Its popular beer bucket specials and 100-ounce football helmet beer are some of the most popular deals of the season, so Monday nights are especially fun.
Harrah’s Las Vegas’ Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill has a country music party bar scene, live bands and oversized burgers galore. The happy hour deal is one of the best in town: buy one draft beer in a 32oz. Mason Jar for $9 and get one free, Monday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Ready to get rowdy? An Irish-themed sports bar with signature sexy servers, Tilted Kilt at The LINQ will have you asking for an Irish car bomb in no time. In between sampling the lengthy beer menu, downing its signature pub pretzels and admiring the waitresses, enjoy sports games broadcast on numerous TVs so you don’t have to miss a minute. If you’re not liquored up enough to party as hard as the Irish, down one of Tilted Kilt’s beer cocktails, the Beergarita. It blends 1800 Silver Tequila, Cointreau, premium lime sour, Blue Moon beer and Angostura Bitters.
It’s time for your own Vegas beer crawl. Bottoms up!

Trust us: Living in Vegas, we are all too familiar with the all-night partying and oh-so-welcoming hangovers. Food (especially the high calorie, indulgent, carb-y kind) seems to cure this monster time and time again. And sometimes a simple donut or bagel paired with a coffee just won’t cut it.
If you’re ready to chow down, Guy Fieri Vegas Kitchen & Bar’s breakfast menu will have your tastes buds singing hallelujah. We had the pleasure of digging into these HUGE servings. We even got to toast with grapefruit juice shots. Let’s just say this blogger has a new appreciation for her favorite meal of the day.
The French toast seemed more like a cake than anything, and the Pancake Pot Pie (can you imagine?) had a fun surprise in its center: Crunchy shortbread cookies! Mmm mmm! Other highlights? The smoky chipotle salsa (used for the hearty burrito and breakfast nachos) was on point and fresh-brewed Stumptown coffee? Way to represent the Northwest, Guy!
Enough with the chit-chat. Peep these photos, print ‘em, fold ‘em into your wallet – whatever you decide to do, just make sure it’s on your next Vegas food itinerary. Enjoy! (P.S.: you can make most of these dishes vegetarian-friendly by nixing the meat. Hooray for us!)
Guy Fieri Vegas Kitchen & Bar is located inside The Quad, soon to be The LINQ Hotel & Casino Oct. 30.

Awarded as one of 2013’s Hottest New Hotels by CNN Travel, as well as one of the 25 Most Innovative Brands by Robb Report, Nobu Hotel within Caesars Palace already garnered distinguished success. Just recently, Architectural Digest featured an article about the stunning, 10,500-square-foot rooftop villa. Designed by famed architect David Rockwell, the brand-new Nobu Villa will easily take your breath away. If you already had the pleasure of seeing the other Nobu suites, then you’re in for a royal treat.
Here’s a fun sneak peek of Nobu Villa’s interior:
The Nobu Villa entices the five senses, featuring lemon-ginger scents, a diverse overhead music selection, Japanese-inspired décor and the option in-room spa or chef services. With so many reasons to love this new Vegas addition, we narrowed it down to our top five reasons why we love it so much.
Spanning 4,700 square feet, the outdoor sky deck is amazing space for the swankiest rooftop party. Featuring ample seating, your choice of overhead music and panoramic views of the Strip, you’ll have the soiree of the year. The terrace also boasts an impressive fire and water feature, a full-sized barbecue station complete with cooking stations, a bar, its own formal dining area and a lounge area where you kick back and talk for hours. Side note: If you really dig the Nobu’s music selection, you can purchase the soundtrack at the end of your stay. Or if you prefer your own tunes, you can plug your iPod just like that. The overhead music plays throughout the sky deck, the indoor dining areas and living room.
Just to the right of the barbecue pit, you’ll find a secluded Zen garden located in the corner of the terrace. Escape all your worries by relaxing in the Italian-made whirlpool, lounging on one of the chaise lounges and admiring the garden. If you’re the lucky one staying in the master bedroom (seen above), it features a private entrance to the Zen garden. And if you’re planning an in-room spa day, there are services ranging from a relaxing bath soak at the outdoor whirlpool to a full-body massage in a private room within the master bedroom. Ahh, the spa life!
Ladies: How many times have you wished you packed extra hair ties and even your make-up remover? This villa actually comes with these small (yet important!) essentials. Supermodel Tyra Banks recently stayed in a Nobu suite and was so thrilled that the room came with a makeup remover that she expressed her gratitude with a note. Additionally, all Nobu suites feature Natura Bisse bath products. Imported from Barcelona, this high-end brand is a favorite among Tyra, as well as Beyoncé. Its rosemary white tea scent is hypnotizing on its own. The master bath exudes a spa feel, from its stone flooring to overhead Japanese lanterns.
In the spirit of hotel owner/chef Nobu Matsuhisa, the villa truly enhances the dining experience. The villa has five different dining areas – a two-sided sushi table in billiards room; a formal dining room with a casual dining corner steps away; a formal dining area outside; as well as an outside barbecue station complete with a full bar. And for $500, you can have your own personal sushi chef for four hours.
Step into the Nobu Villa and you won’t stop admiring your surroundings. The high ceilings give it an open and airy feel, while the Japanese-inspired art whisks you on a journey of its own. Expect a lot of metallic leaf art, plum-colored floral prints, stone flooring and wooden pillars among soft, neutral colors. Rockwell had the vision to create an overall peaceful sanctuary and executed it perfectly.
Impressed? We definitely are. Read more about the Nobu Villa, as well as other lavish Las Vegas suites in our Anthology collection.

Waldorf panzanella salad, lobster roll and lemon pesto grilled cheese? Yes, please! Just when we thought we couldn’t stuff ourselves on any more trips to The Cromwell‘s one and only culinary gem, Giada, along came the lunch menu. After dinner got rolling, Giada De Laurentiis got to taste testing lunch items right away, and was experimenting with the menu and flavors up until lunch service launched mid-July. She wanted both light and filling options, adding everything from a gluten-free caprese frittata with an option of prosciutto to several types of pizzas.
Sandwiches are the star here, from the muffuletta with aged provolone to the tenderlion sliders with peppery jelly. The heftiest item, perhaps, is the lobster roll, which uses an entire lobster between two pieces of thick, dreamy bread and comes with a side of arugula salad or zucchini scapecce.
Tip: don’t even try to resist splurging on one of the fancy coffee-based drinks. I’m not even a coffee drinker, and not surprisingly, the Cappugiro was the best, most rich and flavorful fancy coffee drink I’d ever had. It combines the best of both worlds–hot and cold–coffees, putting a hot cappuccino on the bottom half with chocolate syrup, and a blended frappe-type cold coffee on the top half.
And yes, there is only one pasta on the menu for lunch, but in my world, that’s just an excuse to get to go back and try them all for dinner.

Britney Spears said it herself in her 2009 smash song “Circus”: “I’m a put-on-a-show kind of girl,” and she truly delivers in her resident spectacle, “Britney: Piece of Me” at Planet Hollywood. Spears herself came up with the idea to incorporate wow-factor elements into her first big production. Fire, water, confetti “snow” and rainfall ultimately made it in, along with an army of insanely talented backup dancers, glittering costumes and Spears front-and-center. She goes through hit after hit with ease, from the futuristic-looking opener to the dreamy “Everytime” sequence where she dons angel wings.
Whether you simply love Vegas-style production shows or want to see this icon live, “Piece of Me” doesn’t disappoint. Just ask the thousands of fans next to you who will be standing up and singing along in a Britney-mania fervor the entire time.
Tip: In the mood to party or with a large group? Book a VIP Table package for bottle service, front seats, dedicated check-in and even a meet-and-greet with Britney.
Dynamic duo Penn & Teller are famed around the world—and at the Rio—for their unique style when it comes to blending illusions, comedy and awe-inspiring performance. Penn likes to rant and debunk magic myths while silent Teller is often the brains behind the tricks—or the potential victim of stunts gone awry. It may center around magic, but the show is way more than card tricks. It’s undoubtedly surprising, mystifying and entertaining all at once, offering something for everyone. There’s also plenty of audience interaction, in between Teller catching a fired bullet between his teeth, that is.
Tip: Both Penn and Teller stick around after the show to take pictures with every single person who wants one.
You won’t quite know what to expect when walking into the circus-inspired Spiegelworld Tent that houses “Absinthe.” There are first-come, first-served seats that circle the intimate dome, but beware: front row seats can get you right in the middle of the action of The Gazillionaire, Penny Pibbets and their cast of characters. “Absinthe” mixes adult comedy, acrobatics, singing, variety acts and cabaret.
If you’re on a tight budget or only have time for a single show, you get all in one here. In between jaw-dropping high wire and chair stunts, expect ultra-raunchy humor from the zany hosts (who may even pick on you) and a knockout burlesque performance by Melody Sweets.
Tip: The show venue tent is located in Caesars Palace’s Roman Plaza, by the main valet.
Not only are Recycled Percussion tickets a great Las Vegas show deal, but the outrageous performers and their unique antics appeal to the whole family. Playing at The Quad, Recycled Percussion is a four-person collective that puts on a high-energy “junk rock” show. The talented men use common objects, such as pots and pans and ladders, to drum on, making a variety of music. The adults will appreciate the music and athleticism while kids will love the creative, colorful spectacle of it all. There’s even a “drum-off” and a designated time when warm cookies are handed out to the audience.
Tip: The show is interactive, too, as every audience member gets a drumstick and their own “instrument” object.
Stewart is one of the few icons to claim residency at the The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. His show is beloved around the world by fans who see it multiple times and bring their whole families. Part of the appeal of “Rod Stewart: The Hits” is listening to Stewart take you through the decades as he belts out early career favorites like “Maggie May” to instantly recognizable hits such as “Tonight’s The Night” and “Have I Told You Lately.”
His stage presence alone proves that the global icon hasn’t aged a day, dancing and singing better than ever with his unmistakable gravelly voice. He goes back and forth between singing with his full band to a few acoustic songs and covers, all while grooving like a bona fide rock legend. If a lively, showstopping music concert is what you’re looking for, add “Rhythm Of My Heart” rocker Hot Rod to the top of your list.
Tip: Stewart frequently heads out into the audience aisles to sing and kick around soccer balls, so try to book a seat on the edge of the railing.
