Day one: Stay at SLS Las Vegas
Check into SLS Las Vegas, the stylish yet playfully luxurious new hotel designed by the inimitable Philippe Starck, boasting quirky decorative winks like mirrors on the ceiling and monkey-adorned stained glass windows.
Relax at Foxtail Pool
Grab a latte at The Perq coffee shop and decompress at Foxtail Pool, which, true to Starck style, features a giant rubber ducky sculpture and colourful circus-tent-striped cabanas.
Go for a night out
Get gussied up for a night out and start with cocktail hour at The Chandelier (a tri-level bar adorned with two million beaded crystals) at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Order a Verbena, which comes topped with a “Szechuan button” that will take your taste buds on a titillating ride. Then splurge on dinner at the Michelin-starred Picasso at the Bellagio, where you’ll dine among original artwork by the cubist painter. Request a table by the window to enjoy the famous Fountains of Bellagio, too. And what’s a trip to Vegas without a show? Cirque du Soleil’s O features daring aquatic acrobatics that will blow you out of the water and whisk you into a surrealist’s fantasy world.
