Have you ever wanted to splurge on a Las Vegas hotel suite? Of course you have. We all want to, but let’s face it — not all of us have a wallet like Calvin Harris or VIP casino players. But we’re here to let you in on a secret: Getting a suite in Vegas is not impossible. Far from it. Check out our 10 favorite suites you can actually book without cashing out all your savings. Your Vegas trip is about to go up a notch.

Why stay here: Bar sink with mini fridge, electronic docking station, a vanity and luxury tub in the bathroom
Harrah’s Las Vegas revamped its Valley Tower rooms (you can read more about the Harrah’s Las Vegas room updates) and they sure are spiffy. It’s like renting your own stylish condo, right in the center of the Las Vegas Strip. It comes with its own living area and dining space, and the dark wood furnishings and plum tones give it a sleek look. Even if your guests want to stay a while, you can rest your pretty head in your room — there’s a sliding door that separates you from your night owl companions. We dig the bench seat at the dining table. You’ll catch us sipping our drink while gazing out the window.
Square feet: 860 – 1,000
Why stay here: Whirlpool tub and remarkable views of Vegas’ Eiffel Tower
Ooh la la! We get a thrill just by looking at Paris Las Vegas’ remodeled Charlemagne suite. Taking your sweetie to Vegas? This is our pick for the romantic weekend getaway. If you’re planning a wedding ceremony at the hotel, the suite’s ample living room and dining space makes for a beautiful reception area. There’s an iHome docking station, so make sure you have your wedding soundtrack on hand. Plus, you and your party can toast and sip Champagne while admiring views of the Eiffel Tower. If you love this room, check out the other remodeled Paris Las Vegas suites.
Square feet: 800 – 900
Why stay here: Premium sound system and a killer view of the 550-foot-tall High Roller wheel.
Girls just wanna have fun and this is the ultimate gal suite. The Flamingo Las Vegas Cosmopolitan Suite proves it’s far from ordinary. Its pin-striped accent wall, trendy chandelier and hot pink touches say it all. Get hyped up with the suite’s sound system and after your crazy weekend, the suite’s jetted bathtub is the perfect place to unwind.
Square feet: Up to 1,600
Why stay here: Wet bar, dining area and tons of space.
We really couldn’t decide between the two Flamingo suites, so what the hey — we added both. For the price and square footage, Flamingo’s Forever Fab suite is our favorite deal. Not only is it a splendid location for a bachelorette photo shoot, we love all the different sections of the living room. You can have a drink at the wet bar, eat in the dining area or recap your wild weekend on either of the two sofas. Our only question is, how can we convince the front desk to give us that record player wall art?
Square feet: 723
Why stay here: Spacious seating area, unique retro vibe, rain / steam shower
Whether you want to host a masquerade, Great Gatsby-style or any kind of vintage party, The Cromwell’s Parlour suite provides a glam setting. After all, it’s not every day you see paintings of a cat or dog rocking a top hat. Other unique touches include hardwood floors, a full-size refrigerator, a huge steam shower and a vanity wall, which will come in handy when you’re dolling up for your hotel party. The Strip view is not too shabby, either.
Square feet: About 600
Why stay here: Charging stations with USB ports, in-room board games
If you’re the life of the party, this room seals the deal. The LINQ King Junior Suite is perfect for the young at heart. There’s a bar table, plenty of seating and get this — board game room service. We firmly believe a game of Twister will kick start your evening just right. The suite also comes with two charging stations with USB ports and an LED flat-screen TV. Plus, you’re a quick walk to The LINQ Promenade, which offers everything from live concerts and restaurants to bars and The High Roller wheel. Let the games begin.
Square feet: 300
Why stay here: Poolside service from the pool’s bar and walking distance to the pool.
Summer, summer, summertime — time to sit back and rewind. You’ll be singing DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince’s “Summertime” jam in no time after staying in The LINQ’s poolside cabana suite. You get your own private patio, complete with food and drink service from the pool bar. If you ever wished you could just stay in a cabana all day and all night, this is up your alley. It’s not as big as a typical suite, but not many suites have a pool seconds away from their bed. Plus, you’re knocking out room and cabana costs in one punch. Electronic features include USB charging stations and an LED flat-screen TV.
Note: While the pool may not be open at night (no lifeguard on duty), you can still have an all-night soiree on your patio, complete with swoon-worthy views.
Square feet: 918 – 1,086
Why stay here: Luxurious yet spunky decor, stone and glass-adorned bathroom, double-sink vanity
You’ve all seen them — guys who pair a well-tailored suit with a flashy, unique tie. The remodeled Caesars Palace Julius executive suite does the same thing. It pairs neutral colors and classy furnishings with edgy, pin-striped touches. This living room is the prime spot to hold interesting conversations… maybe even talk in a fancy accent. We’re all for it. After you’re done discussing the economy or philosophical topics (or just where to get the finest cocktail or cigars), you’re only an elevator ride away from all the action — this tower is located in the heart of the casino.
Square feet: 350 – 395
Why stay here: Spa-like bathroom amenities, close to The Forum Shops
Location, location, location. If you’re a shopaholic, look no further. You’re not too far from The Forum Shops, so you can shop ’til you drop… right onto this plush lounger, complete with its own ottoman. The Forum hotel tower is located near Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, so just steps away from The Forum Shops entrance and Colosseum showroom. But don’t just spoil yourself with a shopping spree — the pampering continues with your own jetted bathtub and multi-head shower. If you’re bringing your fellow shopaholic friends, you have the option of adding a connecting room. And with all the shopping you’ve done, you can host one big fashion show here.
Square feet: 1,800+
Why stay here: This swing is everything. Plus, you have the option of splurging on a two-bedroom upgrade.
Who needs a club and pricey bottle service? The party’s in your room, baby. Plus, the swing adds a bit of spunk to the suite. We’re sure you’ll be taking selfies here all night. This Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino Ultra Boulevard suite may be the priciest one on our list, but for good reason. If you and a dozen of your friends chip in, it’s less than $100 per person. You can host football or basketball viewing parties, kick off your bro-cation (or gal’s trip) with a party or just fill your Instagram feed with the zaniest posts. Plus you have a sweet view of the Strip and a lounge-style living room with a huge sectional couch. (Did we mention the swing?) We doubt there’ll be a lot of sleeping going on — this suite is bound to be a party location 24/7.

The post 10 Stylish Las Vegas Suites You Can Actually Afford appeared first on Las Vegas Blog.
In the words of Vince Vaughn in “Swingers,” “Guys like you and me gotta kick it here, old school.”
Trouble is, in Vegas it can be difficult to kick it old school in a classic Vegas lounge. The city has a habit of imploding things that have been around for longer than 20 years.
Lucky for you there’s one place you can still go to find that old-school Vegas lounge vibe. Cleopatra’s Barge bar at Caesars Palace opened in 1970 and is still swingin’ today. We’re talking about a place where Frank Sinatra used to hang out after his shows at the old Circus Maximus showroom.
The intimate (180 capacity) bar and lounge is decked out in opulent red and gold décor befitting an Egyptian-themed venue. The centerpiece of the lounge is the namesake floating barge (surrounded by an actual moat filled with water) modeled after the one that transported royalty on the Nile River during Julius Caesar’s time. Hey, that’s our story and we’re sticking to it. You can’t miss it if you’re walking by – the prow of the boat is a large gold bust of Cleopatra that juts out into a hotel walkway. For many years, gamblers have been known to rub her chest for good luck.
True to vintage Vegas lounge form, Cleopatra’s Barge is one of the few places left where you’ll still find live bands with no cover charge. On Tuesday – Saturday nights you can sit and enjoy the music or get on the barge’s dance floor and literally rock the boat.
Popular Las Vegas groups Dave Perrico Pop Strings Orchestra and the Zowie Bowie Band are currently performing — and keeping the party going — at Cleopatra’s Barge.
Perrico, a trumpeter, composer and arranger, has created a smooth musical sound by merging traditional big band form with modern arrangements of current pop, rock, R&B, and jazz hits.
The 15-piece band features some of the finest professional musicians in Las Vegas playing hits from Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5 and more.
Dave Perrico Pop Strings Orchestra performs Thursday – Saturday from 10 p.m. – midnight. A DJ spins music afterwards.
Zowie Bowie, starring lead singer Chris Phillips and vocalist Nieve Malandra, has been rocking Las Vegas for more than a decade. The band keeps crowds entertained with today’s hottest dance music, Top 40 hits and hip hop.
Zowie Bowie performs Tuesday and Wednesday nights from 9 p.m. – midnight.
Caesars Palace has also recently announced some ticketed concerts at Cleopatra’s Barge from well-known bands. The shows will be a great chance for fans to get up close and personal with the artists.
GRAMMY Award-winning band Blues Traveler will be rocking the barge with a four-night limited engagement “Blues Traveler: Unhooked” Feb. 22 – 23 and March 1 – 2.
Fans of the band won’t want to miss this intimate and unplugged show that will feature the all the big hits like “Run-Around,” “But Anyway” and “Hook,” along with new material.
Tickets start at $79 plus fees. There will also be VIP packages and meet & greet opportunities.
Plain White T’s will perform a two-night engagement at Cleopatra’s Barge March 30 – 31.
The band is known for their catchy mix of pop, punk, and melody-driven rock ‘n’ roll. Their unplugged show will feature all of their hits like “Hey There Delilah,” “Rhythm of Love” and “1, 2, 3, 4.”
General ticket prices begin at $69 plus fees. There’s also a chance to meet the band and get a photo after the show.

Don’t miss the action at any of these popular Las Vegas bars and sports book areas:
Tick tock, tick tock … you’ve got just 24 hours in Vegas. Can you do it? Yes, yes you can and you can do it all in one hotel. Caesars Palace packs an empire of Vegas experiences into one location. So whether it’s a last-minute brocation or an unexpected layover in Sin City, we’ve got your travel tips to make the most of your 24 hours at Caesars Palace.
If you can, plan to arrive at the hotel around 3 p.m. – right before 4 p.m. check in. This gives you just enough time to grab a quick selfie with the original baller — Caesar Augustus — at the entrance of the casino. They say rubbing the statue’s hand is good luck, something you can always use in Vegas. Keep that luck going by downloading the Play by TR app. It’ll give you insider details on Caesars Palace and special offers. Skip the traditional check-in line (remember you’ve only got 24 hours) by opting for one of the Express Check-in Kiosks by the front desk. Leave your bags with the bellhop for delivery to your room and start your Vegas party.
Games are more fun when there’s action on them. Head to the Caesars Palace Race & Sports Book to place a bet on your favorite team. Check the scores of all the games on your radar while enjoying a beer or a cocktail.
If you haven’t already imbibed, you’re overdue for a drink. This is Vegas after all. Grab your wolf pack and check out Alto, the largest bar at Caesars Palace. The venue is lined with booths complete with personal TVs with audio in case you’re still watching the game. Indulge in a classic cocktail like a Moscow Mule, an Absolut Elyx Martini or the Woodford Manhattan served with Woodford Reserve bourbon and Carpano Antica Formula vermouth.
Beef: it’s what’s for dinner. Old Homestead Steakhouse offers up a selection of delicious cuts including the bone-in porterhouse, New York strip, Black Angus filet and the Gotham rib eye on the bone. There’s also plenty of non-steak options like the dry-aged pork chop, Colorado rack of lamb and veggie gnocchi with truffles. And for those in your group craving a REALLY good burger, indulge in one of our favorites in Vegas — the Old Homestead Burger with caramelized onions, Tillamook cheddar cheese, foie gras butter, duck fat fries and bourbon ketchup. Have we got your stomach growling yet?
Who needs the Grammy Awards when you’re in the Live Entertainment Capital of the World? Caesars Palace has hosted more headliners than some music awards show and the world-class performers at the Colosseum continue to astound including Jerry Seinfeld, Rod Stewart and Reba, Brooks & Dunn. Check the calendar to see when your favorites are in town. The award-winning Colosseum was chosen as Billboard Magazine’s Venue of the Decade for 2000-2009 and was recently selected as Billboard’s top performance venue under 5,000 seats for 2016.
After a show it’s time for smooth cigars and even smoother whisky. Enjoy a cigar and a cocktail at Montecristo Cigar Bar. The bar offers one of the largest humidors in the city with a selection of brands including Montecristo, Romeo Y Julieta, H. Upmann and Padron. Pair your fave with a signature cocktail like the Black Barrel Mojito with Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum, fresh mint, lime, house-made simple syrup and club soda. If you prefer to keep with the smoke theme, try the Rolling Smoke with Makers Mark 46 bourbon, Laphroaig Islay whisky, coffee bean-infused Carpano Antica vermouth and vanilla.
It’s almost midnight, so your 24-hour Vegas adventure is shifting into high gear. If you haven’t already made your friends jealous with your Instagram posts, a stop at Omnia Nightclub will do it. Performances by top DJs like Kaskade, Calvin Harris, Afrojack and Armin Van Buuren combined with the multi-sensory experience created by state-of-the-art lights and sound plus a massive kinetic chandelier will have you blowing up your Instagram feed. Hit up the patio for great views of the Las Vegas Strip.
You can sleep when you’re home; it’s time to keep partying. Just because your local bar may close at 2 a.m. doesn’t mean you have to call it quits in Vegas. After Omnia, visit Cleopatra’s Barge for more drinks and dancing. DJs spin until closing Friday and Saturday nights when the venue stays open late. Remember to touch Cleo’s bosom for good luck on the way in or out.
Now that you’ve soaked up some luck from Cleopatra, it’s time to hit the tables or slots for a little gambling. Don’t be intimidated if you aren’t a pro; the dealers will guide you. Find slots from your favorite TV shows like “The Walking Dead” and “Big Bang Theory.”
Sleep?! You don’t need sleep. You’ve only got 24 hours in Vegas. Keep the party rolling in your room. Hangover relief is just a phone call away as in-room dining offers morning spirits like Bloody Marys delivered right to your room, plus a cocktail that’s literally called The Hangover Cure. It includes a blend of Belvedere vodka, Campari and bitters with premium champagne to get you ready for the day.
After a night like that, you’re bound to be hungry. Bacchanal Buffet opens nice and early with a tasty brunch spread sure to hit the spot. “USA Today” ranked Bacchanal Buffet the number one buffet in Las Vegas. Its extensive menu features delectable dishes like red velvet pancakes, lobster Benedict and fried chicken and waffles. Unlimited mimosas and all-you-care-to-drink add ons are available if you need a little hair of the dog.
Head to the poker room to demonstrate your poker prowess at the 10 a.m. no-limit hold ‘em tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of $1,500. What would you do with those winnings? We say another 24 hours in Vegas.
All that calculating of odds at the poker table is bound to make you hungry again so head to Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill for lunch. Start with a Scotch egg or Hellfire Wings then move on to the Hell’s Kitchen Burger or Yorkshire ale batter fish & chips for your main course. Be sure to save room for sticky toffee pudding for dessert. You can get back to CrossFit tomorrow.
After you’re full from lunch, a nap by the pool sounds perfect. If you feel so inclined, you can actually take a dip but let’s face it, that chaise is looking like your new best friend after last night. Don’t forget to apply some sunscreen so you don’t end up looking like that lobster you had at Bacchanal Buffet. The Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis offers six different pools to choose from plus the Venus Pool Club for those who want more of a party atmosphere. It’s time to start daydreaming about your next Vegas trip.
Artist and restaurateur Michael Chow opened the first MR CHOW in London in 1968, offering authentic Beijing cuisine and impeccable service. The restaurant quickly became an international sensation. The famed Beverly Hills location, which opened in 1974, turned into a hot spot known for its celebrity clientele.
After years of hoping for an outlet, Las Vegas became home to the iconic brand in 2015 when the restaurant opened its seventh location at Caesars Palace. The classic restaurant was the perfect fit for a classic hotel.
It recently celebrated its first anniversary at Caesars Palace after a year of welcoming high-profile guests like Britney Spears, Steve Martin, Martin Short, Conan O’Brien, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Jennifer Lopez and more.
The Las Vegas location features elegant white, modern décor with one-of-a-kind design elements including a kinetic “moon” sculpture that hangs over the main dining room. Touches like the sculpture add a bit of a show element to your meal and that’s exactly what MR CHOW likes to do. Not only is it a culinary experience, you’ll also be entertained during your evening.
The sculpture is suspended from a domed ceiling in the center of the room and it comes to life every 20 minutes slowly morphing into different shapes.
You’ll also be wowed by the presentation of the Champagne trolley before your meal. The beautiful cart is wheeled up to your table and you can choose from a high-end selection of bubbles like Krug and Dom Pérignon that are typically hard to find by the glass. You can also enjoy the Champagne by the glass at MR CHOW’s Social Hour, which runs from 5 – 7 p.m. Sunday – Thursday. Stop into the bar and enjoy great prices on Krug Grand Cuvée, Moët & Chandon Rosé and Moët & Chandon Imperial.
When it’s time for food, the dishes are served family-style so that all guests at the table experience a little bit of everything. Need some suggestions? Here are the five things we love to order at MR CHOW Chinese restaurant in Las Vegas:
This appetizer is a house specialty so we recommend starting your meal with it. Tender skewers of sautéed chicken are covered in a buttery, creamy peanut sauce. You’ll notice the chicken’s beautiful orange color, which comes from carrot juice.
Pro tip: Use the accompanying chili sauce to add a nice amount of heat to the chicken.
The green prawn dish is one of the most famous things on the MR CHOW menu. Artist Keith Haring loved the green prawns so much that he drew the famed 1986 portrait “Mr. Chow as Green Prawn in a Bowl of Noodle.”
The prawns get their striking bright (and we mean bright) green color from a spinach puree. The light and flavorful prawns are infused with garlic and served mixed with fresh mushrooms, water chestnuts and roasted cashews.
This dish is a classic. It was first introduced to the menu at MR CHOW in 1968. We love that the noodles are hand pulled. And if you want to see just how much work goes into doing that, you can. Every night the noodle chef comes out into the dining room and puts on a show for the guests. Staff and guests cheer him on as he flips the slab of dough and slams it down until it eventually becomes ribbon-like strands of noodles.
MR CHOW Noodles are served with a sweet and spicy pork sauce and they can also be made with a vegetarian option.
This classic Chinese dish is a favorite at MR CHOW. It is served as a three-course dinner for a minimum of three guests. The duck is roasted to order in an authentic Beijing Duck oven for 40 minutes and then carved tableside.
Wrap the duck in the house-made pancakes and top with cucumbers, scallions and hoisin sauce.
Ma Mignon has been on the MR CHOW menu since 1975 and it’s still a crowd pleaser. The incredibly tender filet is served with a crispy flour crust and is topped with peppercorns and an onion sauce. It’s a simple yet flavorful dish.
A beautiful dessert cart will be wheeled to your table after your meal and you’ll be tempted by things like triple chocolate cake, white chocolate cheesecake, a light and fluffy coconut cake, and oranges soaked in Grand Marnier. Do yourself a favor and indulge.
Las Vegas hotels are designed with everything your heart desires in one convenient location. Where else can you sip craft cocktails, shop at your favorite designer stores, dine at the restaurants of celebrity chefs and see shows by world renowned headliners all under one roof? Here’s your itinerary for spending 24 hours in Vegas at Caesars Palace.
Check in begins at 4 p.m. so plan to arrive at the hotel in the 3 o’clock hour to grab a quick selfie with the statue of Caesar Augustus at the entrance of the casino for good luck before officially checking in. Be sure to download the Play by TR app so you can get all the insider details on the property and its offerings. Head to one of the Express Check-in Kiosks by the front desk if you want to skip the traditional line. Drop your bags with the bellhop for delivery to your room and start your action-packed adventure.
Kick things off with a little refresh of your look at COLOR Salon by Michael Boychuck. Get your hair and makeup done by the color experts at this salon that’s a favorite of celebs like LeAnn Rimes and Paris Hilton. The salon specializes in color (duh), lash extensions and hair extensions, as well as air-brushed makeup.
Grab a cocktail at Alto Bar. Get into the spirit of Caesars Palace with the Crown of the Gods cocktail featuring Crown Royal Canadian whisky, lime syrup, blood orange liqueur and aromatic bitters. Another great option is Cleo’s Cosmo, a fresh twist on the classic cocktail featuring Belvedere Mango Passion vodka, Cointreau liqueur, fresh-squeezed lime and cranberry juice.
It’s dinner time but where should you go? The place to see and be seen of course: MR CHOW. This trendy import from LA is the perfect spot to dine before you head to see a show. The scallion pancake appetizer is to die for and remember vacation carbs don’t count. Be sure to make use of MR CHOW’s signature champagne trolley featuring your favorite bubbles. Grab a group shot on the patio overlooking the gorgeous Garden of the Gods Pool before you head out.
One of the best things about Las Vegas is the world class entertainment. Caesars Palace is home to the top headliners in town. Performers at The Colosseum include Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Rod Stewart, Elton John and Reba, Brooks & Dunn. Check the performance calendar to see when your favorite is performing. The beautiful Colosseum was Billboard Magazine’s Venue of the Decade for 2000-2009 and was recently selected as Billboard’s top performance venue under 5,000 seats for 2016.
Stop by Fizz for a post-show drink and take a moment to process your fabulous Colosseum show experience. Fizz features a wide selection of rare and delicious champagnes, champagne cocktails and other specialty drinks. It’s one of the few places in town where you can order top-shelf champs by the glass including Dom Perignon, Krug and Perrier Jouet Brut Fleur de Champagne.
It’s time to show off that hot outfit at the club. Hear music from the top DJs like Kaskade, Calvin Harris, Afrojack and Armin Van Buuren at OMNIA Nightclub. In addition to a stellar list of DJs, Omnia is visually stunning. From state-of-the-art lights and sound to a massive kinetic chandelier built from concentric circles that move, this club is the definition of high-tech glamour. Be sure to step outside on the patio for an impressive view of the Strip and more picture-perfect photo ops.
Vegas nights are just getting going at 2 a.m. when most bars in other parts of the country are closing down. After the club, head over to Cleopatra’s Barge for more drinks and dancing. DJs spin until closing Friday and Saturday nights when the venue stays open late. Remember to touch Cleo’s bosom for good luck on the way in or out.
Now that Cleopatra’s luck rubbed off on you, it’s time to hit the tables or slots for a little gambling action. Don’t be intimidated if you’re a bit of a novice; the dealers will guide you. If slots are more your speed, look for fun ones like Britney Spears and Dolly Parton.
In Las Vegas, people don’t always waste time sleeping because there’s just too much to do. Keep the party rolling in your room or take a little snooze if you must. Hangover relief is just a phone call away as in-room dining offers morning spirits like mimosas and Bloody Marys delivered right to your room, along with a cocktail that’s literally called The Hangover Cure. Featuring a blend of Belvedere vodka, Campari and bitters topped with premium champagne, this cocktail should fix you right up and get you ready for the day.
It’s time for everybody’s favorite meal of the day, brunch. Bacchanal Buffet opens nice and early with a tasty brunch spread that has something for everyone. “USA Today” ranked Bacchanal Buffet the number one buffet in Las Vegas and with a menu that includes delectable dishes like red velvet pancakes, lobster benedict and fried chicken and waffles, it’s easy to see why. Unlimited mimosas and all-you-care-to-drink add ons are available to help you ward off that hangover.
After you’re full of delicious food, it’s time to take a nap by the pool. If you’re feeling bold you can actually take a dip but let’s face it, that chaise is looking pretty appealing after your big night. Don’t forget to apply some sunscreen. You don’t want to look like that lobster you had at Bacchanal Buffet. The Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis offers six different pools to choose from plus the Venus Pool Club for those who want more of a party atmosphere.
Continue the relaxation with a trip to Qua Baths & Spa, located on the second floor of the Augustus Tower. The award-winning spa offers everything from massages and facials to aromatherapy and chakra balancing. Try the Deep Tissue Surrender massage to relieve muscles that are sore from dancing all night. If you’re looking less than fresh after staying up all night, the Hydratherapy Facial will restore your glow.
You’ve already hit a few of the lucky spots at Caesars Palace like the statue of Caesar Augustus and also Cleopatra but now it’s time to finish out the list. No trip to Caesars Palace is complete without a photo at the statue of David in the Appian Way Shops. Touch his toe for good luck. Next up is the statue of boxer Joe Louis located near the Caesars Palace Race and Sports Book. Touch gloves with The Brown Bomber to gain some more luck. When you head outside of the casino, you’ll find The Brahma Shrine, a replica of one of the most popular Buddhist Shrines in Thailand, believed to bring good fortune. Pay your respects and soak up some luck. While you’re outside, be sure to grab some pictures on the Strip in front of Caesars Palace.
All that walking around is bound to make you hungry again so head to Stripside Café and Bar for lunch. Surprise, surprise, it’s located stripside just in front of Caesars Palace. The wide menu includes favorites like the huevos rancheros burrito, Stripside chicken Parmesan, Boulevard nachos and the Stripside cheesesteak. Be sure to save room for one of the signature milkshake mugs for dessert. We’re partial to the cookies and cream one.
It’s almost time to head to the airport but you can still fit in some last-minute shopping. Test the limits of your suitcase’s zippers with the must-have items you find in the Appian Way Shops and The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. Splurge on some new Christian Louboutin shoes, a bag from Balenciaga or some jewels from Tiffany & Co.

You know you want him. Back by popular demand, Pitbull returns to The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino to headline his limited engagement Vegas show, “Time of Our Lives.”
Fans went crazy as Mr. Worldwide wowed during his Planet Hollywood residency last March. If you need your Pitbull concert fix and your summer plans include a Vegas escape, look no further: Pitbull will perform eight shows from July 21 through August 5, 2017. Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. (Pacific Time) on Friday, Feb. 17. The following dates for Pitbull’s “Time of Our Lives” will be available:
If you’re a Total Rewards member, you’re in luck; You’ll get a special pre-sale privilege on Thursday, Feb. 16 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. PT.
To date, Pitbull sold 5 million albums and 60 million singles worldwide. He has No. 1 hits in more than 15 countries and performed sold-out shows in North and South America, Europe and the Far East. No wonder he’s dubbed as Mr. Worldwide.
His show is a few months from now, but it’s never too early to get you hyped up for it. That’s why we’re going to share our top five Pitbull party music videos. Fun fact: Did you know his videos have more than 7 billion views? That’s like saying every single person in this world watched at least one Pitbull video. Turn your sound up and get your jam on:
Why we love this video: Pitbull and Ne-Yo’s house party shows us how it’s done, baby.
Who could ever forget those beloved backyard, clear-everything-in-the-living-room house parties? These gatherings always came in handy when we either a) weren’t 21 yet or b) didn’t want to deal with the hassle of long lines and cover charges. And honestly, if you don’t want to adhere to a strict dress code or get snubbed by the bartenders, house parties are always a great go-to anyway. This video takes us back to New Year’s Eve 1999 and proves all you need to welcome a new century are Solo cups, a fun vibe and good music. If you’re going to see Pitbull in Vegas, we suggest kicking off your night with this music video or with your own pre-funk party inspired by this video.
Why we love this video: Between the fun costumes, minimalist backdrop and text across the screen, the video is like a magazine ad that burst into life.
OK, so this is the track you should be playing multiple times before (and after!) Pitbull’s Vegas show. “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)” is one of his earliest hit singles and will forever be a club banger. The second you hear this track, we better see you shaking your hips on the dance floor. Rumbaaa…
Why we love this video: For absolutely everything. If this doesn’t hype you up for a vacation, we don’t know what will.
If you had to choose one Pitbull video to watch for the rest of your life, this would be it. This video is the epitome of fun, hence the name of the track. We love the video’s ultra-bright hues, the “Miami Vice” vibe, Chris Brown and Pitbull’s dancing, the party on the speedboat and neon lights of the nightclub. Plus, the funky house beat gets even the shyest dancers on their toes. And if you weren’t really a Pitbull fan before, “Fun” will get your there.
Why we love this video: Fast, fancy cars and fashionable checkered uniforms — really, what’s not to love?
Gimme the green light, cuz I’m ready to go!
Just like the aforementioned house party music video, Pitbull proves you can get your dance on anywhere. If you do play this in your car, make sure to drive responsibly — not 80 miles per hour. Or, you can blast this in your car while driving down the Las Vegas Strip on the way to / from Planet Hollywood before / after the show. You get extra points for donning a checkered outfit.
Why we love this video: Pitbull shows “Men in Black” how to party
Ooh, you groovy baby…
Now that we all had the time of our lives with all these music videos, we’re going to end this list by taking you back. First, we have to give a shout out to Mr. 305 for sampling Mickey and Sylvia’s “Love Is Strange.” The guitar riffs immediately give us a nostalgic feel. We also loved how the family watched the Pitbull party from their black and white television. For all you EDM fans, stick to the end of this video and you’ll get your little dubstep fix.
Pitbull has dozens of hits, and of course it was a challenge to narrow our favorites down to five. That’s why the best way to experience his music is in person. If you’re hyped up by four-minute music videos, imagine the intensity of a full-length concert.
Let’s keep the party going in the meantime — share with us your favorite Pitbull songs and videos. And don’t forget to mark your calendar to snag your Pitbull concert ticket in Vegas. You know what? We’re just going to start calling him Mr. 702. Dale!
If you remember Jamiroquai’s ’90s hit, “Virtual Insanity,” you get a cool card. But if you can recall the band’s funky music video, that’s even better: The video’s futuristic feel is similar to what you’d feel on a virtual reality (VR) experience. For a few minutes, you’re whisked off to another world, but it’s intense enough to shake up your entire day. We can dig it.
We hope you’re in town before the end of this month. Throughout the month of February, you can enjoy three different VR activities on the Strip. Whether you’re an adventure seeker, gamer with precise zombie shooting skills or want to try something new, you’re in for a treat. Hop on our VR Vegas ride and get ready for some serious futuristic play.
We’ve all seen it in countless commercials, or maybe you got to try it out at a friend’s house. Not this blogger! I had a slight idea, but never tried the goggles to really know what VR was all about. Until now.
Playing video games is one thing, but escaping to a virtual world is a whole new dimension. You get a 360-view of something that either a) replicates a real environment or b) puts you in an imaginary setting. The interactive elements and three-dimensional graphics stimulate your experience. And yes — this is all by slipping on goggles. VR is the way of the future: You’re a flying superhero one moment (check out our guy above) or a raging rock star the next. After my three experiences, I may expand my horizons past Nintendo’s Tetris and Super Mario Bros. 3…
What we love: Oculus is located in Alto Bar’s private lounge space, allowing you to have a more intimate VR experience
Who would love it: A 21-and-older crowd; club-goers passing time before heading to OMNIA Nightclub
Best for: Hardcore gamers (and equally hardcore artists)
Best time to do it: As part of your evening activities (and before March – it closes the end of February)
I fell in love with Alto Bar’s private lounge the second I stepped in. This is the perfect setting for you and your crew, but you can also mingle with new friends too. The lounge area has two Oculus VR stations, as well as several plush sofa chairs. And here’s where it gets good — your Oculus experience is free with a purchase of a cocktail.
I wanted to tap into my inner Picasso so I tried out the VR game, Medium. In Medium, you have a virtual instructor who guides you step by step. I’m not saying I created the perfect feline (it looked more like a Marge Simpson / rabbit hybrid), but it was an entertaining process to say the least. I enjoyed spray painting my cat with hot pink streaks… something my real-life cat would never let me do. I can cross this VR drawing experience off my bucket list, but I’ll definitely stick to my day job.
If you’re looking for something more fast-paced than a virtual art class, the staff recommended the sports and shooting games. I’ll leave those for my husband to try. Get a better feel of Oculus and make sure you stop in before the end of February. Since Oculus is inside Alto Bar, the limited-time pop up is reserved for guests 21 and older. Oculus is available from 5 p.m. until late.
What we love: Slicing and dicing fruits in Holocube’s Fruit Ninja game
Who would love it: All ages and anyone who’s prepared to release tons of energy
Best for: Gamers, but also those looking for a quick workout
Best time to do it: Any time after noon, but only for a limited time (Holocube closes at the end of February)
Gamers, get ready: This is nothing like the video games you used to play at arcades or pizza parlors (although we loved those, despite the cheesy 8-bit graphics). You can choose from a variety of VR games including sports, zombie shooting and much more.
Since I’m not into shooting zombies (I’m actually more comfortable watching “The Walking Dead”), I decided to give Holocube’s version of Fruit Ninja a try. I had the mobile app when it first came out, so I thought this would be perfect to test out. I’m so glad I did. After slaying fruits with my two swords (joysticks), I felt like a legit samurai. Piece of advice: Make sure to avoid the fruit bombs — those guys come at you really fast. I had a blast slicing through the pineapples because they were so big. Fruit Ninja is also ideal if you want to release any pent-up stress.
Fruit Ninja gave me a confidence boost, so I decided to unleash my inner rock star and play Guitar Hero. After all, there are many headliners in Vegas, but only one you, baby! Get ready to double-fist pump because that’s what you’ll be doing for the entire set. With your two joysticks, you have to tap the color trails as they come toward you. It’s intense, and you get a real good workout, too. But hey — the adrenaline rush of being onstage and playing in a massive arena makes it all worth it. Righteous.
You have about three weeks to play, so make sure you check it out near TAG Sports Bar when you’re at The LINQ Hotel & Casino. It’s $10 for 10 minutes for two games of your choice.
What we love: The special effects that’ll make you feel like you’re zooming on a roller coaster or soaring above a safari
Who would love it: Adventure seekers
Best for: Those who don’t want to stand in long lines at the roller coaster; those who want to experience a safari and glaciers all in one day
Best time to do it: Before lunch (or way after lunch)
Last but certainly not least, we bring you VR Adventures at The LINQ Promenade. VR Adventures gets you to not only use joysticks, but you’ll be walking, jumping and flying in a virtual world.
I wanted to do something I never did before: jump off the top of Caesars Palace. This VR experience started with me walking on and jumping from a plank. I knew I wasn’t standing 40 stories above the ground, but I was still leery to take the plunge. I got a crazy rush when I finally did. The part I loved was blasting off into the sky from the game’s virtual elevator. When I finally zoomed via zip line, I enjoyed a cool view of the Strip and its surrounding mountains. If you’re looking for a crazy adventure without investing a chunk of your day, you’ll love this.
Looking for something more peaceful? The world tour VR experience is up your alley. After my make-believe zip line ride at Caesars Palace, I witnessed Arctic ice caps, flew over giraffes, elephants and horses, got up-close views of adorable lions and enjoyed a hot air balloon ride.
If you’re a true adrenaline junkie and crave even more thrills, don’t shy away from the virtual roller coaster. You’ll embark on so many loops and just when you think it’s over… it’s far from it, my friend. The chair rattles and moves with you, so you’ll be gripping the arm rests. You’ll be good, though. Make sure you’re hydrated before and after the ride. One last thing — just like with any other thrill ride, don’t try this right after lunch. Each experience starts at $20.
After everything, I give each VR Vegas experience two joysticks up. I love how these didn’t take all day, but still felt like I did so much. And when you’re in Sin City, you’ll want to squeeze in all the activities you can. Have a blast and check out other things to do in Vegas.

Stumped about what to get your special someone for Valentine’s Day? You can’t go wrong with the sweet stuff. We’re talking chocolate, pastries, candy and every other type of goodness you can imagine.
Here’s where you can profess your love with sugar this Valentine’s Day in Las Vegas.
This Parisian-style café features a walk-up pastry case that’s filled with all kinds of delicious treats. Choose from cupcakes, éclairs, croissants, fruit tarts and a variety of traditional French pastries. Pair your goodies with a coffee or hot chocolate and enjoy.
If you want something different from the traditional box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day, try an assortment of cookies. The Honolulu Cookie Company recently opened a store at The LINQ Promenade, and it’s full of premium shortbread cookies hand-dipped in chocolate and baked daily in Honolulu. The Valentine’s Collection features vintage-inspired packaging with both pineapple and heart-shaped cookies in a variety of favorite flavors like butter macadamia, white chocolate coconut and dark triple chocolate macadamia.
Urban Turban Indian restaurant at The LINQ Promenade serves a unique dessert that’s worth stopping in for. You’ve heard of samosas, but Chef Tarun has reinvented the traditional food as a dessert. The chocolate samosa features a crispy shell filled with warm chocolate and served with sweet rose sauce and salted pecans.
HEXX Chocolate + Confexxions, located adjacent to HEXX Kitchen + Bar, creates its own chocolate on site from bean to bar. You can even watch it being made.
You can purchase chocolate bars and candy (they have a great retro candy selection) at the shop. For Valentine’s Day, you’ll find a special gift basket themed for the holiday. The basket includes a bottle of Summers Andriana’s Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon. Each basket also includes five 2.12-ounce dark bars and five 2.12-ounce milk bars. The gift basket is priced at $94.95.
Add a French twist to your Valentine’s Day with chocolates and pastries from acclaimed pastry chef François Payard. The chocolate shop features a variety of truffles, bonbons and macarons in beautiful gift packaging. You’ll also find Valentine’s Day pastries like heart-shaped cakes, macaron hearts and a raspberry rose éclair.
If your Valentine likes cupcakes, Sprinkles is the place to go. The shop offers a rainbow of flavors that rotate by the week. We’re talking cinnamon sugar, peanut butter chip, salty caramel, chocolate coconut and many more. Sprinkles also features special monthly flavors, and for Valentine’s Day, from now through Feb. 14, you can grab your sweetie an XOX box.
The cupcakes are topped with XOX and heart sugar decorations. Each box of a dozen contains the perfect mix of flavors: Valentine’s Day favorites red velvet and chocolate marshmallow, as well as classics dark chocolate and vanilla.
Ghirardelli has been making chocolate since 1852 so you know you’re going to get the good stuff here. The store is filled with dozens of flavors and varieties of chocolate confections.
For Valentine’s Day, you can buy heart-shaped boxes and tins with premium assortments of chocolate. They also offer special seasonal flavors like strawberry for Valentine’s Day.
While you’re in the shop you’ll want to indulge in one of their famous hot fudge sundaes or a hot chocolate.
If you’re looking for a frozen treat, you’ll love the creamy European gelato from Amorino. The gelato, which comes in flavors like salted caramel, dulce de leche, Sicilian citrus, banana, chocolate and many more, is served in a unique flower-shaped cone that almost looks too pretty to eat. Almost.
Amorino also serves gelato-filled macarons, specialty coffee, crepes, waffles and hot chocolate.
The new Stripside Cafe at Caesars Palace serves mouthwatering milkshakes that are perfect for sharing with someone special. The milkshake mugs come in chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, cookies and cream, salted caramel and chocolate mint.
If you don’t have a date for Valentine’s Day, who cares? Grab a bunch of friends and indulge in something sweet anyway. Carmine’s in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace offers several Anti-Valentine’s Day specials.
The “My Heart Will Not Go On” package includes a bottle of Prosecco and the restaurant’s famous Titanic sundae.
There’s also an Anti-Valentine’s Day cocktail and dessert package that includes a cherry chocolate martini made with Grey Goose Black Cherry and Godiva Dark Chocolate, topped with cream. The dessert is a chocolate heart torte with chocolate dipped strawberries, which feeds four to six people.
“What happened last night?”
These fateful words uttered by the character of Phil in the hit comedy “The Hangover” come to mind for many a Vegas visitor. Heck, occasionally we locals also wake up a little foggy after hitting the Las Vegas Strip. Fans of the film can recreate their own Hangover experience, though it won’t include a tiger in a Caesars Palace hotel room (security doesn’t allow exotic animals in the room). Regardless of the presence of jungle cats on your Vegas vacay guest list, grab your tortoise shell BluBlockers, strap on a baby and hope you don’t lose a tooth!
Many parts of “The Hangover” were actually shot in Nevada so it’s easy to recreate your own adventure on the way to fabulous Las Vegas, even if you’re not on the ultimate bachelor party mission. Cross the California border and fill your tank at the Jean Fuel West Shell in Jean, NV to kick things off. This gas station and convenience store was renamed the Gas N Gulp in the movie but you can definitely grab some snacks there for your pilgrimage to Las Vegas.
The Hangover Wolfpack was on the prowl for the ideal bachelor party pad so they headed to Caesars Palace in the center of the iconic Las Vegas Strip. Caesars Palace employees still get asked, “Did Caesar live here?” though the film debuted back in 2009.
We get the confusion. Alan’s now famous question is legit. The property’s name really does make it sound like it was Caesar’s actual abode. Well, ok… maybe only if you’re Alan. Every group has an Alan. (If you think yours doesn’t, it’s you.)
Get in the spirit of the movie by playing a Hangover slot machine on the way to your room. Then be sure to do a little souvenir shopping. Buy your Alan a gift at the Caesars Palace Lobby Store or Forum Store. Snag him a “Did Caesar live here?” hat or a t-shirt with the Baby Carlos character in a Bjorn carrier.
The guys booked an opulent suite in the Caesars Palace Augustus Tower. That specific room doesn’t actually exist, but you can visit the elevator bay and hallway on the 24th floor of the hotel, shown in the movie.
This suite was a Warner Bros. Studios’ sound stage but Caesars Palace boasts a full array of suites perfect for a bachelor party getaway. The film’s suite was modeled after the Forum Tower Emperor’s Suite featured in the film “Rain Man.” Book this room and enjoy a wet bar, three different seating areas (in case you need to get away from Alan) and a circular booth located by the window overlooking the Strip. The two-story Julius Executive Duplex Suite would also be ideal, featuring a staircase and balcony perfect for Mike Tyson to belt out “In the Air Tonight,” provided you know how to get a hold of him of course.
Another memorable scene from the film is Ken Jeong, aka Mr. Chow, jumping out of the car trunk naked in an empty dirt lot. Head to the corner of Mandalay Bay Rd. and Giles St. to find this location from the movie. Better yet, just recount the laughs from Mr. Chow’s naked scene over dinner at MR CHOW. The Caesars Palace restaurant features a champagne trolley and a fabulous kinetic sculpture called The Moon, which will mesmerize you whether you’re hungover or not. The authentic Beijing cuisine is best enjoyed family-style while trying to remember what all you did last night and if it indeed involved tigers.
If you find yourselves needing to return Mike Tyson’s tiger to his house, take a drive to East Fremont Street like Phil, Stu and Alan did on their way. This part of Downtown Las Vegas is adjacent to the famous Viva Vision canopy light show over the Fremont Street Experience.
Swing by local Las Vegas bar Atomic Liquors on the way back to Caesars Palace. It opened in 1952 and is the oldest free-standing bar in Las Vegas so you can attribute your cocktail consumption to historical research. Before entering the hotel, walk the Strip outside and look for a costumed busker dressed as Alan. He can often be found posing for pics, complete with bushy beard, signature sunglasses and a baby doll in a carrier.
Not ready to call it a night? Stop by the classic Caesars Palace lounge Cleopatra’s Barge, open until 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Enjoy a nightcap and do a group headcount to make sure all your crew members, and their teeth, are still there.
When you wake up in the morning, or maybe in the afternoon, regroup at the Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis like the movie characters did. They suffered from a little memory loss and had to empty their pockets for clues as to what happened the previous night. Get refreshed with a little poolside breakfast while piecing together any fuzzy pieces from your night.
Once that’s all squared away, it’s time to start planning your next Vegas trip! If you didn’t fit everything Hangover related in during this vacation, no worries. Remember “The Hangover” had sequels and your Vegas adventure should too.
