5 Reasons To Get To Las Vegas Right Now
By Zeke Quezada
Las Vegas is ever evolving but right now there is so much happening on the Las Vegas strip that you should just drop everything you are doing and plan a trip. Restaurants are opening, hotels are getting a remodel and there is so much great food to be eaten that you should be thankful that the pool season just ended.
While Vegas changes often, right now there is so much happening that you’ll be exploring an all-new Las Vegas when you hit the Strip.
Get Excited About What’s New In Las Vegas
While Cosmopolitan has been known for its excellent dining options since they opened their doors there was a bit of a void when it came to casual dining on the property. This void has been filled by Block 16 Urban Food Hall. Salty, Savory and Sweet all in one spot with District: Donuts. Slider. Brew. Pick up a sandwich Nashville Hot Chicken, indulge in porchetta at Lardo Las Vegas and satisfy a foodie craving at Pok Pok Wing. You’ll find a secret bar here called Ghost Donkey and it fits with the Cosmopolitan Culture of being in the know. No need to tell you where it is, you’ll find it but it is always cool to think there is something out there that others don’t know about.
NoMad Las Vegas
Vegas has a way of making you feel like a VIP even if you are playing the penny slots. NoMad, on the other hand, has you feeling like an ultra VIP with a swagger. The NoMad Bar is sexy and seductive as it doubles as an all-day restaurant that caters to your need to be playful at all hours of the day. Nomad Restaurant brings a New York City vibe and an almost anti-vegas scene to an upscale dining room with a dedication to a food and beverage program designed for a discerning diner. NoMad Las Vegas is classy, tempting and a tiny bit presumptuous but in a good way, the hotel equivalent of the little black dress.
Catch at Aria Las Vegas
Upscale Asian inspired seafood where the Vegas mood collides with celebrity flare. The menu is focused on sushi and seafood but is rounded out with your typical Vegas standards of beef and veggie offerings. You’ll be at Catch Las Vegas for the seafood and the cocktails. The cocktail program and the lounge are pure Vegas. Find a seat in the lounge Thursday through Saturday where the resident DJ sets the tone for your Vegas experience.
The Cocktail Collective at Venetian and Palazzo Las Vegas
The Palazzo and Venetian did a great job with their new look. What they did an even better job with is the addition of a few great bars. The Cocktail Collective as it is referred to includes The Dorsey, Rosina, and Elektra. The Dorsey is sophisticated and alluring, while Rosina is sexy and subdued and Elektra is the high energy sister of the other two. Your night should end Elektra but you will need to bar hop between these three bars and their individual cocktail programs.
Eataly Las Vegas at Park MGM
By the end of 2018 Eataly Las Vegas, the Italian Marketplace that has shops around the world will open at Park MGM. You’ll be snacking on fresh bread, indulging in Italian wines and you will be induced by everything Italian. The wood-fired pizza, the fresh pasta and the need to linger over your meal will take over your Las Vegas vacation. The Eataly experience is all about the appreciation of the Italian culture spoken through food and wine.
