You’ve bought the plane tickets, now it is time to plan the perfect night on the Las Vegas strip. But which Vegas bars should you attend and what casinos should you play at?
Everyone talks about visiting Las Vegas, and so they should, it’s a place like no other. But few people discuss the exact details of what they want to see, do and visit in Vegas. Of course, there are casinos to play at and beverages to drink, but what venues makes the perfect night out in Las Vegas?
If you are planning a trip or already booked your tickets, now it’s time to pick out some of the best bars and shows not to miss.
Start the Night with Some Drinks
Just like the Hangover films – or maybe not exactly like the Hangover films – it is best to start the night off with a tipple. But instead of heading to the hotel rooftop, you can find some unique bars in Vegas with different themes – worthy of your Instagram.
If you want a classy vibe to start the night, it may be worth checking out Downtown Cocktail Bar or House of Blues. These cosy venues ooze sophistication and the latter hosts live music events every week. Parasol Up/Parasol Down is another elegant bar decorated to resemble 20th century Paris. These are some of the best bars in Vegas, and you might want to explore them all, even if you are only in town for a night.
Play Some Casino Games
Even if casino gaming isn’t your thing, can you really go to Vegas and not have a small flutter? It is a rite of passage for every tourist. If you are unsure of the rules and feel a little embarrassed pulling up a seat next to other players – don’t! Las Vegas casinos are filled with friendly staff whose job it is to explain the rules and how to play. Part of the gaming experience is the social aspect as well. But where should you play? Here are some of the best casinos to visit:
- Wynn Las Vegas
- Palazzo Resort
- The Venetian
- The Bellagio
Watch Professional Sports and Shows
Las Vegas is not just the main stage for gambling. It is also the centre of the action for performances. The most obvious is the boxing matches that take place in Vegas and are televised to millions of viewers around the world. If you are lucky enough, you may just get a ticket. Other show you could attend include watching a new type of athlete, the professional gamer. The HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas is one of the latest and most exciting venues to watch eSports.
But maybe you had some other shows on your mind? Perhaps a celebrity singer or renowned act? Here are some options you have, from magicians to singers:
- Penn and Teller at Rio
- Carrot Top at Luxor
- Blue Man Group at Luxor
- Absinth at Caesars Palace (a weird and wonderful collection of talents!)
These are only a tiny slice of the acts and music performances in Vegas. As you can see, one night is never enough in Vegas…
