Las Vegas

Vegas is definitely not for everyone. But it’s certainly for me. It’s like candy land for adults; everything is created to keep you wide awake (they pump oxygen into every hotel casino and club), and wide-eyed (everything is just so big).

Three nights in sin city is the perfect amount of time – anything less and you’ll have missed out on something and anything more, well, you might not survive (your bank account certainly won’t!)

Go to party, flash the cash, hear some top-name DJs, sit in the sun, frosé all day and remember to fulfil the all important Vegas motto: ToLo…tits out, legs open*

*I don’t know if the Nevada tourism board actively promote this, but that was certainly the motto of my bachelorette weekend!




Walk around
People watch
Dare the zip line down the strip
Go to the Neon Museum which is an Instagrammer’s heaven
Go to a show
Make sure you see Magic Mike
Go to a club
Hit a pool party
Watch the Bellagio fountains



Milk Bar (Cosmopolitan Hotel) Order the crack pie.

Momofuku (Cosmopolitan Hotel) David Chang’s Asian hip spot

Blue Ribbon (Cosmopolitan Hotel) Upscale American eatery inspired by a well-known NYC standby

Herringbone (Aria Hotel) If you can bare the heat, grab a table outside. You may almost think you’re in Ibiza with their banging beats and chilled vibe

Neither tried nor tested, but researched & recommended…

Mon Ami Gabi Charming French bistro highlighting classics such as steak frites & onion soup, plus patio dining

Bardot Brasserie (Aria Hotel) Michael Mina’s French brasserie offers a polished central bar, upscale fare, a patio & a 1920s vibe

Mozen Bistro (The Mandarin Oriental Hotel) Variety of Asian dishes for breakfast, lunch & dinner in a serene setting at the Mandarin Oriental



You can drink anywhere and everywhere in Vegas. But if you were looking for a specific bar, check out the below:

Neither tried nor tested, but researched & recommended…

Rosina (The Venetian) Sexy hideaway serving handcrafted classics, off-menu creations & champagne at the push of a button

Mandarin Bar (Mandarin Hotel) Sleek lounge offering creative cocktails, light bites & floor-to-ceiling windows with Strip views

Skyfall Lounge (Delano Hotel) Chic bar on the Delano’s 64th floor offering drinks, snacks, a dance floor & patio with city views



Find out which DJ’s are playing and go to your favourite one that night

Omnia (Caeser’s Palace) My favourite club in Vegas where Calvin Harris has a residency every Friday night

Marquee (The Cosmopolitan)

Make sure you go to a pool party. Warning: they are not for the faint-hearted, but definitely worth doing even if it’s only once in your life. My favourite is Encore at The Wynn

Neither tried nor tested, but researched & recommended…

XS (The Wynn)

Jewel (The Aria)

Hakkasan (MGM Grand)

TAO (The Venetian)



The Bellagio The largest and I think the most quiet pool area. Big rooms, a Vegas staple

Aria Terrific location smack bang in the centre of the strip. Big (like everything else) with lots of eating options

Neither tried nor tested, but researched & recommended…

Cosmopolitan This hotel has the most amount of restaurants in it, so it’s always packed. And that’s precisely why I wouldn’t stay there

Caesar’s Palace or should I say, Palacio. Absolutely frickin’ ginormous!

The Venetian Channeling Venice vibes with painted ceilings and men wearing strippy tops on gondalas

Excalibur Looks like a fairy tale castle. A bit run down and grubby on the inside

New York New York There’s an actual Statue of Liberty and a roller coaster, sure.

The Wynn Probably the fanciest and nicest hotel on the strip, but it comes with a hefty price tag to match

The Mandarin Oriental Luxury 5-star hotel you can get anywhere else in the world

Nobu Hotel Part of Caesar’s Palacio (I told it it was big). If it’s anything like the food, I’m sure it’s tasty and expensive


I visited Vegas in May 2016 and May 2018
