Now that the temps are finally starting to drop in the desert, a long weekend in Las Vegas sounds more enticing than ever. I’ve just returned from another visit to the City that Never Sleeps, and in addition to some fantastic memories, I got back on the plane with a new favorite hotel and list of hot dining spots to add to my little Black Book. If Las Vegas is calling your name, below are several recommendations for where to stay, where to eat, and what to see – Plus a fabulous Taigan outfit to have you doing it all in style.
Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas
A sexy oasis on Las Vegas Boulevard void of a smoky casino, brimming with elegance.
Nobu at Nobu Hotel Ceasars Palace
Japanese cuisine, stylish ambiance.
“O” by Cirque du Soleil
It’s been around for a while, and for good reason, it’s arguably the best show in town.
Visit the Fine Art Gallery at Bellagio
Current exhibit is Andy Warhol through February 2014.
Red Rock Canyon on the edge of town for a morning, or evening, hike. Gorgeous landscape and views over the valley. After working up an appetite, stop into LBS at Red Rock Casino for the best burger in town.
A Vegas-appropriate Taigan outfit, lace & python head to toe:
*Theaters in Las Vegas are notoriously cool, it’s best to bring a stylish jacket when catching a show.
*Adding an unexpected edge to an otherwise classic ensemble.
