Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Las Vegas

Portofino
In the hands of Executive Chef Michael LaPlaca, Portofino - found in The Mirage on the Las Vegas Strip - produces some stellar modern Italian cuisine.
Giada
Found inside the Cromwell Hotel, Giada is the mega-watted Italian restaurant from celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis with an extensive menu.
Carson Kitchen
Found in Vegas’ trendy downtown, Carson Kitchen is the swan song of late celebrity chef Simon Kerry, serving unique twists on comfort food classics.
Bazaar Meat by José Andrés
Bazaar Meat by José Andrés is a glorious meathouse with Philippe Stark-designed interiors and a menu of masterfully cooked meats.
Other Mama
A modern, American-style raw bar in Vegas’ Westside serving sustainable seafood and unique cocktails, Other Mama is a labour of love from chef Dan Krohmer.
Andiron Steak and Sea
Andiron Steak and Sea conjures a Hamptons-esque vibe, offering a creative menu of American classics and live music in Downtown Summerlin four nights a week.
L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon
L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon offers a sleek and unpretentious French dining experience from its spot within the MGM Grand, just steps from the slot machines.
Nobu Hotel
From the great minds that brought us black miso cod, the Nobu Hotel at Caesars in Las Vegas is wallet-meltingly luxurious and design-conscious.
Therapy
Sleek industrial-style gastro-lounge Therapy in Downtown Las Vegas serves up personal and sharing plates of mouthwatering American cuisine.
The Cosmopolitan
With everything from affordable, delicious dining to ritzy penthouses, The Cosmopolitan runs the full gamut of Las Vegas accommodation.
Delano Las Vegas
With a gold exterior that glimmers in the desert sunshine, Delano Las Vegas is a bold and stylish hotel for those looking for luxurious stay in the city.
Shadow Creek
Brush up on your swing at Shadow Creek, one of Sin City's plushest golf courses.
M Resort
M Resort is where Nevada's brightest young things come to party and hunker down between fine thread-count sheets afterwards.
Fiamma
Fiamma is a dimly-lit Italian trattoria in the middle of restaurant row at MGM Grand that's a hidden gem for those in the know-including locals and Vegas regulars who don't need to see and be seen.
Palms Place
If a spot on the Strip isn't paramount, it's hard to imagine cooler digs than the apartment-style rooms at Palms Place, the Palms' sister property.
Hotel 32
This hotel-within-a-hotel, located on the top floor of the Monte Carlo has a private porte cochere, an express elevator and in-suite check-in, so you'll never have to mix with the hoi polloi if you don't want to.
Palms
Redefining hip, Palms Casino Resort attracts celebrities from Tara Reid and Lara Flynn Boyle to Jamie Foxx and the 'N Sync boys (back in the day).
Wynn Las Vegas
Wynn Las Vegas is the new signature resort of Steve Wynn, who has become an icon in the city and is considered a living legend in America's adult Disneyland.
Fin
Fin, an awaited addition to the ever-evolving Mirage, is a refined spot in an intimate glass setting with gold and jade accents - not at all your typical Chinese restaurant.
Tao
Agent Provocateur
Strip House
Nobu
Joël Robuchon
Jöel Robuchon is another awesome addition to the MGM Grand's already impressive collection of celebrity chef restaurants.
Le Rêve
Another day, another Cirque show: This one's thin on storyline but thick on sets and stunts.
The fourth Cirque to open in Vegas, Kà blows away audiences as much for its trademark theatrics as for its amazing stage-a custom-built contraption that moves in almost every direction.
Wynn Golf Club
Tom Fazio does it again. He has magically transformed the old Desert Inn Golf Course into an 18-hole oasis right on the Strip-making it the easiest place to play for Wynn guests.
Vdara Spa
It's difficult to be unique in the sea of Vegas' super spas, but Vdara stands apart as the city's only green spa.
Trump Tower Spa
The spa of choice for visiting A-listers, ol' Donald certainly knows how to spoil us within the sleek confines of Trump.
Aria Spa
Proving once and for all that size is indeed everything, The Spa at Aria certainly doesn't scrimp on space. And stuffed with amenities, it'll please even the most discerning spa junkie.
Spa Mandalay
Spa Mandalay is a world-class, 30,000-square-foot spa located on the lower level of the hotel.
Spa Bellagio
The Bellagio kicked off 2005 with a brand-new spa and salon: it was transformed from its Roman bath design into a sleek Zen-influenced 65,000-square-foot spa and salon.
Drift Spa at Palms
Whether you want to centre your chi with a candlelight yoga class or loosen sore muscles with a soak and a massage, the Spa at the Palms has you covered.
Encore Spa at Wynn
It's difficult to one-up the spas in this town, but Wynn has done just that with his spa at Encore.
Reliquary Spa
You're a superspa, that is what you are; Reliquary Spa at Hard Rock caters to Sin City's most style-savvy spa-junkies.
Mandara Spa
Mandara is the Sanskrit word for calm, and finding that state of serenity is what brings a suave set to this urban oasis.
MGM Grand Spa
This is truly a connoisseurs' spa with rich wood floors, ultra-plush lounge chairs, and even a menu that recommends treatments for your level of spa experience.
Mandarin Spa
Let's face it: Most Vegas spas have fairly plush wet areas, and the 27,000-square-foot, bi-level spa at the Mandarin Oriental is no exception.
Canyon Ranch SpaClub
 The Canyon Ranch SpaClub Expansion at the Palazzo is definitely something to ooh and ahh over.
Palazzo Shoppes
The Palazzo Shoppes introduced dozens of luxury names to Nevada-and for this we thank them.
