Best for: Foodies and night owls
With so many new hotels, restaurant, and entertainment offerings, winter is the perfect time to try your luck in Sin City. The former Monte Carlo has been made over and in its place is the freshly minted Park MGM, the newest hotel and casino to debut on the Strip. Inspired by urban parks, the hotel features a giant upside-down tree in the center of the newly redesigned lobby, spacious rooms that feel residential, and a courtyard setting surrounding two pools. The top four floors are home to the NoMad, a luxury hotel-within-a-hotel concept that has its own check-in, elevator, and amenities. Some of the best new dining bets in Las Vegas include the speakeasy-inspired Bavette’s Steakhouse Bar inside the new Park MGM, the elegant China Tang at the MGM Grand, and Wolfgang Puck’s Spago at the Bellagio, with its picture-perfect views of the famous dancing fountains. Back at the Park MGM, the new Park Theatre debuts electrifying new shows by both Lady Gaga and Britney Spears this winter.
